When your wife is Kim Kardashian we imagine it can be pretty tricky to find a birthday present, for it seems this sexy lady has the whole world at her feet. This former PA and former fashion stylist to Lindsey Lohan has certainly come a long way thanks to the reality TV show “keeping up with the Kardashian” …
These paparazzi photos of Kim Kardashian at the airport give you a mild idea of what life is like for her on a daily basis. 90’s pop star from 98 Degrees told GQ Magazine lately that Kim got her first taste of fame by using him. After he asked her out on a date to the movies, he noticed a horde of paparazzi showed up by the time they were leaving. Although he didn’t say it flat out, he implied that no one was there when they showed up, but that Kim must have tipped them off while they were inside because they were waiting for photos when the couple got ready to leave. After that, all the gossip mags wanted to know who Kim was. Imagine how any girl seen talking to Justin Bieber gets all kinds of press coverage for a few days. Kim harnessed that publicity and made it grow into a gigantic TV, beauty product, clothing line – everything you can sell – industry. Is she a genius or did it all fall into her lap? You decide.
How strange is it that Kim Kardashian seems to be struggling to maintain her relevancy yet her younger sisters have no trouble at all gathering the spotlight even though they’re usually dressed casually? When you’re young, the world is excited about what you’re up to. Maybe that’s why the Jenner sisters see a flurry of web activity after either of them post a bikini photo. When Kim does it, it’s no big deal because she’s done it a million times before. With younger girls, a bag like the Givenchy Lucrezia also looks very impressive. How many 17-18 year olds in the world can afford a bag like this even when they’re wealthy? The Kardashians don’t have your average moral compass which makes them reign in the conspicuous spending. Their parents aren’t the type to say “No, that’s too much money for such a young girl to be wearing! Focus on your grades!” It’s only natural for the rest of the teenage girls around the globe to “ooh” and “aah” in adoration and envy.
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.
Winter holidays are coming up and it’s the season for doing good deeds and charitable acts of kindness. Some people do good just for the sake of helping others, even if it makes them look large-hearted and others just want all the glory without having to part with too much money! Kim Kardashian was raised in a very business-oriented household so sadly, she’s the former. The glamour queen recently asked her fans to go buy some of her clothes in sale for charity. What she neglected to inform them is just 10% of the proceeds go to charity. Where she lives in California, sales tax alone is 9%. Kim is worth nearly half a billion dollars but she would rather keep a few thousand more for herself rather than help those affected by the storm in the Phillipines.
Victoria Beckham also donated about 20 boxes of her clothing as well as that of David Beckham’s to the British Red Cross. All proceeds are going to the hurricane victims and her fans are ecstatic to get their hands on some of her clothes. Charity isn’t a competition but it’s almost criminal to tell fans to buy your clothes for charity before keeping most of the money for yourself. Sadly, this isn’t even the first time Kim pulled such a scam.
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:
