Kim in Adidas X Ivy Park!

A post shared by Kim Kardashian Snapchat (@kimkardashiansnap) on

It was a joke going around for weeks – Beyonce sent her Ivy Park/Adidas collection to all of her celebrity friends and various Beyhive/Instagram influencers, but not the Kardashians. Celebrities and influencers alike all posted videos and photos as soon as they got their Ivy Park collections, so we always knew who got what and when. Kendall Jenner apparently got the only advanced Ivy Park package in the Kardashian-Jenner clan, and my theory is that Kendall only recieved it because she’s already got an Adidas contract, not because Beyonce actually wanted Kendall to get the Ivy Park clothes. But Beyonce must have figured out that the lack of Ivy Park packages to Kardashians was becoming a talking point, so here we are. Kim Kardashian finally got her orange box.

The more I see of the Ivy Park collection, the more I remain underwhelmed. I fully support Beyonce’s entrance into the athleisure business, of course, but the Virginia Tech color scheme and the questionable real-world wearability of this stuff… yeah, it’s not great. I also think it’s sort of funny that Kim wasn’t pushing the Ivy Park collection in stand-alone Instagrams. She saves individual IG posts for her own (successful) collection of intimates and shapewear. She only posted the Ivy Park stuff on her Snapchat and IG Stories.

So, do Beyonce and Kim get along? That’s the real undercurrent of so many conversations about Beyonce/Kim and Jay-Z/Kanye. I think that much like the war of the Sussexes and Cambridges, the main beef has always been between the men. Kanye and Jay are not forgiving each other any time soon. But Beyonce and Kim just sort of accept each other’s presence and maybe this was some kind of vague olive branch. I mostly believe Beyonce doesn’t care one way or the other about Kim, and Kim has enough going on in her life where she stopped caring a bit too. They’re not friends. They don’t have to be.

    In the UK the colour scheme is pretty much the same as the staff uniform of a large supermarket chain called Sainsbury’s. It really is uncanny – there’s a meme’s of Bey’s head photoshopped over someone wearing a Sainsbury’s uniform.

  2. A says:

    Loooooool i think Adidas sent it because obviously Kanye works with them and i think Kim has shares in adidas if i remember correctly. Yeah bey doesn’t like her i will NEVER forget posting pictures on Instagram during their weeding day.

  3. Leigh says:

    I believe Jay/Kanye called a truce awhile ago….unless there’s some new beef that I missed. I doubt that they’re best friends and hanging out every weekend, but they appear to be more civil at the moment than Will/Harry.

  4. Eliza_ says:

    What. Is. That. First. Outfit.

    I mean it’s not sport. It’s not club. It’s not lingerie. I am confused.

    • Christina says:

      I like it, and I’d wear it with a long tunic over it and boots.

      I know. I’m tacky. It’s a very Los Angeles, casual cocktails thing to wear. I mean, people wear high heeled hiking boots there.

  5. Katinka says:

    The amount of plastic those stupid ugly microfiber-filled clothes are packed in pains me :(
    Now with the climate crisis I think about every piece of plastic I use and seeing this is something like that is so discouraging… wish Beyoncé and big clothing companies would hop on the sustainability wagon.

    On another note: Kim spent a fortune getting rid of her baby hairs, looks like now she wants them back.

    • bucketbot says:

      I see a lot of people (mainly African Americans) styling their baby bangs. Alicia Keys recently did it for the Grammys, and I remember FKA Twigs doing it when she was a regular on this site. I don’t know if it always was a thing but I started noticing it last year or so on many celebs. It looks cute on some.

      • eto says:

        We call them baby hairs or edges! I’m terrible at laying my edges so I’m in full support of the return of fuzzy baby hair :D

      • bucketbot says:

        @eto, Right. Baby hairs. i was not thinking clearly. Baby bangs look good on barely anyone.

    • Charfromdarock says:

      I cringed looking at all that plastic, on the clothes not Kim.

      Why does everything need it’s own plastic bag? It’s already in a trunk.

  6. Trish-a says:

    You know when you embarrass cringe for someone. I just did. I wonder what’s inside? Girl, we nobody’s know what’s inside! Cringe!

  7. Original Jenns says:

    I think she got her orange closet when everyone else did (whether from Beyoncé or Adidas, who knows). Look at how the clothes fit her shape – she had everything tailored before modeling it. She has to. I do think Kendall’s is for sure from Adidas.

    • Christina says:

      That seems more likely, that she had the clothes tailored first. She apologizes for being late. Bey’s not stupid. She knows that Kim will sell the clothes to her base.

  8. naomipaige99 says:

    Girl got a weird shape!

    In my opinion she was way prettier before she made herself to look like a blow up doll.

  9. grumpyterrier says:

    The clothes are fug anyways. She was probably hoping to never get them. Then “Dun, dun” here comes the orange storage Pod of Doom up the driveway! No……!

  10. chicken tetrazzini! says:

    My local Marshall’s has Ivy Park showing up in it; so maybe that’s how Kim got hers?

  11. MCV says:

    Kanye works for Adidas so I assume everyone affiliated with them got one, Bey dgaf about her and the collection is already sold out so i don’t believe for a second that Kim “forgot” or “couldn’t” post it until now.

  12. Trish-a says:

    @chicken! Really? I made a joke about that-but I figured it’d be at least a year.

    If I saw KKW 10-15years ago I would say ohhh that poor girl. I wonder If PS could help her deformity. To think she does this to herself? And people want to look like her. It’s sooooo weird to me.

  13. lowercaselila says:

    I don’t think that Beyoncé even decides who receives her clothing line Adidas makes that decision. They send it to celebrities that have contracts with the company, brand ambassadors, influencers and other assorted celebrities. My friend who coaches a big 10 women’s lacrosse team gets samples from all the athletic companies for her to try on all the time. You should see her athletic wardrobe. I think it is a fake narrative made up by the tabloids that there is friction between the two women.

    • Christina says:

      Caselila, I think that is true generally speaking, but big names people behind clothing lines probably get a list of people who will be distributed free clothing so that some minion can run names searches for people just in case.

      All companies send free stuff to certain celebs and influencers. A coach would be an influencer for lacrosse team athletic wear. Most lacrosse coaches don’t have named lines and potential beefs with weird celebrities, so your friend’s job is probably on a list for women’s products because the school she teaches at has enough of a market that other women will buy if they see her wearing the stuff. My asshat ex used to get free stuff all the time since he was in the music business.

  14. Really? says:

    So. Thirsty. Pathetic for someone as old as she is.

  15. Iknow says:

    I think their was frost between the two women before Jay-z and Kanye fell out. I also have heard that Beyonce is not thrilled with Kim’s close affiliation with, who could be Becky with the Good hair, Rachel Roy. From what I understand, Roy was at the kim and Kanye’s wedding.

  16. Original Jenns says:

    oops double post. But I’ll still say unless there was a reason she’s pretending she’s late, she just needed time to tailor them to her body.

    • ME says:

      I was thinking the same thing too…but she also probably wanted more attention by everyone speculating she didn’t get a package. Also, she’s busy studying to be a lawyer don’t ya know?!

  17. lucy2 says:

    OMG, her figure in that last photo, yikes. My joints hurt just looking at that unnatural, surgically made shape.

  18. kerwood says:

    Maybe Beyonce got some returns and decided to pass them on.

    • Annaloo says:

      Maybe bestie Gwyneth will get some clothes too… eventually

      • Mumbles says:

        Lol whatever happened to that? Lol at Gwynnie introducing her at the Grammys a few years ago, “My beautiful friend, Beyonce Knowles Carter” and all her desperate IGs of her kids playing with Blue Ivy (and of course her N-word IG when they were in Paris.) Maybe that rumor of her hooking up with Jay-Z was true.

  19. ME says:

    I remember she used to sell her used clothes (a lot of which she got for FREE) on Ebay and say it was for charity (but only give 10% to charity). Now the family has Kardashian Kloset where they sell their used clothes. I can see these being put up for sale there…just wait lol.

  20. jules says:

    I think this is an afterthought by B and some clear shade. Hilarious, two egos dueling.

  21. mar says:

    Kim’s bod looks so not human anymore. WTF is with those pants? AWFUL that people think this looks good

  22. JennyJenny says:

    I’d have LOVED a video presentation of her getting into those pants!!

  23. clairej says:

    After seeing Reese Witherspoons video and how she looked in the clothes I was trying to figure out how Kim could possibly get those clothes to work. Definitely had to have been tailored. The clothes were truly nasty anyway.

  24. Aimee says:

    Great. Now all of these morons can look alike!!!

  25. Beatles says:

    This was not done because the press/fans where noticing. Beyonce didn’t care about that, it wasn’t “bad press” for her anyways. And even with the story out there she still wasn’t intending to give one to her, especially since the Kardashians repeatedly bugged the shit out of Beyonce’s people (in extremely rude a manner) until they were definitively outright told they weren’t on the list to get one. No.

    The momager had to basically threaten Adidas corporate and their future contracts with Kanye & Kendall to get one, even then corporate was like “what”? Then Kanye asked as a personal favor and somebody up the chain of command finally said they’d had enough of hearing about it and just make them happy, even then it was sent by Adidas directly not Beyonce’s people. Her sample collection packages where already out and long gone to people she actually wanted to give them to. (She had no extras to send to Kim since these were specially made to order for certain people.)

    The unfortunate things I learn working in sports. This story is gonna be office joke fodder for YEARS though. People are already taking about dressing up as Kim in this gear for next Halloween.

    My daughter and I are both Virginia Tech Hokies. She and I were talking about the collection and I said I wish I could afford it because that’s some nice Hokie wear. Thank you for knowing our colors!!!
