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.
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:
