North West received two micro purses from Alexander Wang for her 5th birthday

Kim Kardashian is sort of like Ivanka Trump, in that Kim and Ivanka both like to “counter-program” for their families by posting happy-family-type images on social media during bad newscycles. The Trump administration loses 1500 immigrant children? Ivanka posts a photo of one of her children. Kanye is out there saying slavery was a choice? Kim conveniently posts some ‘grams of Saint or North or Chicago. It’s all pretty obvious, for both Kim and Ivanka, although in Kim’s case, it’s not like Kanye has any actual power to destroy lives or bomb anyone, so Kim’s counter-programming is less annoying to me.

All of which to say, Kim is definitely trying to deflect from a lot of Kanye’s crap these days. The Whitney Houston bathroom photo? The bad reviews of Kanye’s album? The whole Pusha-Drake beef which Yeezy wants no part of? I don’t know. But Kim is trying. She posted an Instagram story about North West receiving a special birthday gift from Alexander Wang: a “micro purse” with a leopard print. The purse retails for $750 but North got it for free as a personal gift from the designer. It looks like Wang sent North a second purse too. The child is FIVE.

That being said… I would defend Blue Ivy and Beyonce if this happened, and I’m sure it did happen – I’m sure designers send tons of stuff to Blue Ivy on her birthdays. We just don’t mind it as much because we feel like Beyonce is a more legitimate celebrity than Kim. And Beyonce’s not trying to counter-program for anything. And Beyonce isn’t out there, Snap-bragging about all the freebies too.

Okay @KKWBeauty, we see you 👀

    man, say what you will about Kim and Ye but they do make beautiful children.

    • Megan says:

      They are gorgeous. It reminds me of how pretty Kim’s original face was.

    • Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

      She is adorable! But I feel so sad looking at her pictures because she will never be “enough” for this family. She will never be pretty enough, sexy enough, talented enough, rich enough…

      I hope Kris has the business sense to let her play with those purses once for a photo shoot and then sell them off. Put the money in a trust for her emancipation/education.

  2. mltpsych says:

    Her lips are out of control.

  3. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I can’t imagine living in those eyelashes like she does lol.

    • Beth says:

      Fake eyelashes like that look like spiders. They look so thick and heavy, it must be exhausting to keep her eyes open

  4. KatieBo says:

    I’m not really a Kardashian apologist but designers send celebrities free things as advertisement. They SHOULD be Instagramming, Snapchatting, getting photographed with items. That’s WHY they send them. It’s a reciprocal deal, no?

    • Sherry says:

      I was going to say the exact same thing. Kim puts this stuff on her Instagram because it’s a great way to thank the designers for the gifts by exposing their brand to her millions of followers. This is what they should be doing as a thank you for expensive designer gifts. It’s just common courtesy.

    • Astrid says:

      I agree with your comments about celebrity/brand advertisement but I think the difference here is that a 5 year old is getting sucked into a PR machine.

  5. jwoolman says:

    Am I imagining this or has Kim magically become the same color as her daughter again?

  6. JennyJenny says:

    So, I’ve never looked at her two Instagram accounts until this morning.
    I just can’t get over all of the narcissism I just endured! SO over the top.

    She even received 4 completely blinged out containers of Vaseline; was that a gift from Vaseline? Really?

  7. SlightlyAnonny says:

    Let’s be honest, if this were Blue, there would be literal tons of comments tearing her personally apart for being a brat, spoiled, selfish, a future serial killer, etc because of what people chose to send her. Because it’s North? Crickets. Mind you, I’m not saying it’s appropriate in either case (kidlets really don’t control the presents they receive) but it’s…interesting.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      I think it’s because of a love factor. Partially at least. Kardashian gets plenty of criticism, and it’s basically unilateral and ubiquitous. Beyonce has an emotionally-charged fan base. She presents herself entirely different than Kardashian in that she obviously ascribes to her own extreme heightened level of stardom, goddess…diety lol. Because of this, dissention is louder, more acute. It’s not about liking KK more, it’s about leveling the scales so to speak.

      • SlightlyAnonny says:

        … leveling the scales.

        By attacking a child? Yeah…that’s not a healthy practice.

      • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

        Oh no! I was speaking about Kardashian vs Beyonce audiences in general. Attacking children is never okay imo.

      • Otaku fairy says:

        The place Kim Kardashian holds in the ‘anti-PC’ culture wars is different from the place Beyonce holds in those culture wars.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      @SlightlyAnonny: Right? Not that people haven’t imposed or will stop imposing other nastiness on North or the other babies she’s related to. But I’m actually shocked that people aren’t leaping at the chance to be fauxraged or Concerned about this.

  8. Wood Dragon says:

    Cute little girl. A shame though that she’s surrounded by narcissists though. They’re going to warp her personality like a black hole bends light.

  9. Carbonara says:

    Once again a famous “trash-tv” mum makes herself the the focus of her selfies-whith babies, but slightly less so than the equivalent I’ve seen of Kylies and her aunt (?) who’s had child recently, I don’t remember her name. The one who uses snapchat filters so heavily that the skull of her otherwise really cute-looking baby looks difformed.
    At least Kim seems to be making the effort of sharing the spotlight with her kids, instead of stealing it.

    The kids are all gorgeous.

  10. Andrea says:

    Semi nude photos next to photos of her beautiful children? Her Instagram is atrocious. I feel so badly for her children but I suppose many, many more children are in far worse situations and they don’t appeared abused so ….
