The Kardashians are no longer one big happy family. Kim is doing her own diva thing being Mrs. Kanye West. Kris and Bruce have split up. Kendall and Kylie have their own lives now and they’re no longer glued to each other like twins. Kendall has her New York and London fashion week thing going on. Kourtney is nowhere to be seen. That leaves Khloe, who seems to be busy tweeting cryptic messages about her divorce with Lamar Odom. What’s a girl to do when you’ve got no one to shoot your His and Hers reality show with? Step out wearing new clothes, that’s what.
Khloe has lost a lot of weight the last couple of years but that doesn’t mean she’s going to stop wearing slimming black. All black is a good look for her, especially the tall black leather boots. Leather looks really great on people who have the confidence to pull it off, and that is something Khloe has a lot of. It’s just too bad she’s not as adventurous with her handbag choices because all we ever see her in is Celine.
Remember how the summer before last, all Kim Kardashian carried was Chanel and Celine on her arm? It looks like she’s back to her beloved Hermes. This range of bags is called the Birkin. The Birkin is infamous and needs no introduction. Women who can afford them start out by getting the most recognizable and usable versions of the bag – the black and orange leather Birkins. But when you’re a woman like Kim Kardashian, the basic stuff is really not what people expect to see you in.
The latest Birkins Kim’s been seen with are the huge black Birkin Kanye gave to her as a present, you know, the one with the handpainted Picasso-like painted ladies. This one is definitely more low-key, even though it most likely also cost a fortune. It’s a relatively small sized snake leather Birkin. The exotic animal print Birkins are always higher priced than the basic leather Birkins, so just because it’s small doesn’t make this Hermes bag modest!
One of the reasons Kim Kardashian became famous is unmentionable. The other reason not everyone realizes is because she is a beauty icon, especially for dark-haired women or women with a tan. For brunettes with brown eyes and a penchant for glamorous, dramatic looks, she was a breath of fresh air in the mid 2000s. In those days, almost all the famous celebs were white, skinny girls with blonde hair and makeup to match. Kim came bursting through the door with long, thick wavy hair. Her curls were to die for. Everyone lost it trying to copy them. Her eye makeup took Middle Eastern style mainstream and made the smokey look all the rage. Everyone knew which color lipgloss was her favorite – Nars Turkish Delight.
But now that she’s married, had a baby and has moved on from being a Beverly Hills girl to a Paris High Fashion girl, all of that is no more. Her makeup look is unremarkable. Her fashion style is so fancy it can’t be mimicked by girls in their teens or twenties. She’s just no longer accessible. And the worst part is she’s lost her easygoing smile due to botox. The chemical has caused her skin to get so stretched out that a smile is no longer possible and her upper lip area is unnaturally large as a result, changing the look of her entire face.
Sigh, it’s actually painful to see Kim Kardashian roam around looking like a formerly wealthy hobo. The camel trench coat isn’t doing her any favors and the only thing that makes up for the rest of her outfit is her leather Balenciaga bag. Ever since the reality star started dating Kanye West, she’s completely given up her own personal style in favor of whatever the rapper-turned-designer puts her in. It all started with an episode of her show in which he threw out the entire contents of her closet in order to restyle her.
Now she’s no longer known for her dark, luscious locks, exotic makeup looks or blingy dresses. Now she’s often seen wearing head to toe all one color and her hair is stringy and limp as a result of a bad dye job. We miss the Kim Kardashian of olden days. To make matters worse, a Paris Fashion Week insider is claiming Kanye’s new range left viewers unimpressed and the famous couple are laughed at wherever they go. To make it EVEN worse, there are rumors that Kim’s show is about to be canceled for lack of viewers.
If you’ve been wondering why there have been so few posts about Kim lately, it’s because she’s been in hiding for months now. When the reality star gained a lot of weight because of her pregnancy, she disappeared and hasn’t been seen since. About a month ago, she gave birth but chose to stay out of the spotlight. Word is, she didn’t want to be seen until she got down to 115 pounds. After a year of being hounded by gossip rags for being overweight, it sounds like the perfect revenge. After all, the Kim is known for being beautiful and having a stunning body – that’s why she became famous in the first place.
Unfortunately for her Vogue “Baby and Me” cover plans, paparazzi caught her and boyfriend Kanye on a trip to the hospital. Kim was carrying a huge Birkin as a diaper bag. Known for using extremely expensive Hermes totes as beach bags and gym totes, this isn’t out of the ordinary for Kim. It just makes us mere mortals gasp at the excess of it all. Here’s Kim with an oversize Hermes in the past:
Kim Kardashian doesn’t always hit the right notes with her outfits, but we just adore this particular one. For once she is covered up, excluding the fact that she’s practically spilling out of her shirt, and she has kept it simple. This ensemble is perfect for travelling, which is what this Kardashian was doing when she was spotted at the airport. We’d choose comfy shoes over heels, but we don’t think we’ve ever seen Kim K without her stilettos.
However, we cannot take our eyes off of Kim Kardashian’s gorgeous bag. This Balenciaga bag, made out of the best quality suede, retails for approximately $1,500. The bag is big in size, and style, so it is fashionable and functional. It is perfect for day to day tasks, running errands, and traveling.
The Kardashians go through phases when it comes to fashion obsessions. A while ago, it was the Chanel Flap Bag. Then it was Hermes Hermes Hermes – Birkins in every color for every Kardashian! Lately we’ve been spotting the Klan carrying a lot of Celine.
Kourtney carried a Celine Mini Luggage Tote for a great deal of her pregnancy. Kanye, an honorary Kardashian, has even rapped about Celine designer Phoebe Philo. Here Kim carries the Celine Beige Trio bag.
The sisters were spotted in Miami and we all know that when the weather is warm and one’s skin is a glowing tan, white clothes look great. And what goes great with white clothes? A beige bag to match the tan. Kim’s demure and stylish look is an improvement in comparison to some of the looks she’s been sporting lately. This bag is not only cute but very versatile.
