Kim Kardashian & Kanye West ate KFC at Jean Paul Gaultier’s Paris studio

Kim Kardashian arrives at Carousel restaurant in Glendale for a family dinner

Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian in Glendale last night. She went out to dinner with her mom and a few of her sisters. She was apparently so dressed up because she was filming an episode of David Letterman’s Netflix talk show? Anyway, I really dislike this color on Kim! It’s sort of a muted sunflower and… someone with Kim’s coloring should avoid it. Granted, it doesn’t wash her out as badly as I would have expected, but Kim has always looked much better in red and lavender, but she rarely wears such rich colors anymore. I also kind of think Kim is starting to gain a little bit of weight back, which makes me happy because her body actually looks better now. More proportional, you know? Less like a plastic surgery experiment gone wrong.

Meanwhile, Kim was in Paris a few days ago with Kanye West. They were there to check in with some of their favorite designers, like Jean Paul Gaultier. At Gaultier’s studio, Kim snapped a photo of herself in the mirror, trying on a Gaultier look, but check out Kanye West eating some KFC:

I knew that the Kentucky Fried Chicken brand was global and that KFC is super-popular in many Asian countries, but I did NOT know that Parisians had access to KFC. I wonder if the recipe is any different there? Because KFC here in America is WAY too salty. Anyway… Parisian KFC, and Kimye is making it happen. Here’s Kim’s Instagram post.

    Kanye could not be less interested in looking at his wife as she models tight clothes.

  2. grumpyterrier says:

    Just…why? Paris has such amazing food- even the street food is good. No reason at all for KFC.

    • yanka says:

      There are a lot of African immigrants in Paris, and it’s very popular with them. There’s a few in the sort of suburb areas and a few in the very touristy centre of Paris.

      Kanye acts like a toddler pretty much all the time, and I imagine much like travelling with a toddler, he needs his comfort items to remind him of home and make him calm down, like some KFC and some hideous shoes.

    • Ashley says:

      As an American I can say attest to how hard it is to find fried chicken in Paris. I guess she was on Grand Boulevard. That KFC is always packed (mostly with African and Chinese immigrants). You can’t eat steak and frites everyday. Unless you can pay to really spend money at a restaurant with bougie, small plates, it’s mostly steak and frites, beef tartare, magret canard, and steak and frites, there’s not a lot of variety. Every place basically serves the same thing.

      But KFC in Paris is severely lacking. No gravy, no biscuits and no mashed potatoes.

    • Heather says:

      My guess? Kim is quite vocal, lately, about eating a plant-based diet (full applause from me on that, if it’s true). KFC has announced that they are offering plant-based alternatives. I would lay bets that she is gunning for an endorsement deal with them.

      • Snowslow says:

        I’m vegan and got all excited about the vegan burger KFC put out… in London.
        Then I travelled to Paris, was super hungry, got in a KFC and no vegan option at all.
        Super disappointed at the incapacity of going vegan of the French, and their infantile sense of humour about plant-based diets. Sick of it.

      • Heather says:

        @Snowslow: I’m in Canada, so we don’t have the PB KFC options here, yet.
        Sadly, there are too many people who think plant based eating is nothing more than a joke.
        If KKW (along with many others who are become more vocal about it) is willing to shed light on the benefits of plant-based eating, it brings me joy!

      • Snowslow says:

        @Heather Funny thing is that here at our KFC’s in London they wear T-Shirts to promote the PB burger with the word ‘chicken’ crossed out in green. So funny.
        Not sure KKW is really chanting the benefits of being vegan, I think she is more of a wave rider.
        Game Changers, a slightly over the top documentary produced and sponsored by James Cameron, Djokovic etc is really convincing people more actively and more sincerely I think, and I am sooooo glad.

    • Montrealaise says:

      I read that Warren Buffett only has hamburgers when he travels to Paris and refuses to try French food.

  3. Spicecake38 says:

    Been eating clean all of 2020 for health and fitness reasons and am trying to incorporate vegetarian and vegan recipes as well.I won’t completely commit to strictly cutting out meat/animal products Just reducing as much as possible….That said I now really want KFC-the chicken the coleslaw,mashed potatoes,Lord help me it’s been since forever that I’ve had this stuff!
    On another note I actually think Kim looks pretty in the yellow ,I really like her shoes too.
    I also wander if the Parisian version of KFC would be slightly healthier ,doubt it though…

    • Swack says:

      Haven’t eaten KFC in over 30 years. Ever since my daughter (she was 2 at the time) and I got food poisoning from it.

    • MCV says:

      I think the only difference between european fast food and american is the size of menus and the oil

      • yanka says:

        The meat is often of higher quality, just because of EU regulations – no chlorinated chicken, etc. However it’s still fast food and any actual health benefits would have previously come from the meals being a bit smaller, but that’s changing all the time.

    • manda says:

      I’m right there with you spicecake, I really like kfc chicken, too! I love fried chicken legs. So good. My husband loves kfc cole slaw. We never go there anymore, LOL. We began our cleaner eating last year and so we are a little more selective with our cheats, and pizza ends up winning more often than chicken.

      also, I like to try fast foods in other countries to see how they are different. I’ve had kfc in London and it wasn’t very good, but I would think it would be super delicious in france! I always say that the best sandwich I ever had in my life I bought at a train station in paris. The french know how to make good food

      • Spicecake38 says:

        I have had McDonald’s in Stockholm,and agree that probably the difference was portion sizes,and price.Definiteley price !
        I haven’t been to Paris but I wouldn’t touch anything that is American junk/fast food I mean it’s Paris for heavens sakes!I would be eating in bistros,and definitely sample as much street food there as possible.
        I have seen the movie Something’s Gotta Give with Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson a million times and have googled the Parisian restaurant where she says has the best roast chicken -Le Grande Colbert,travel/food goals for sure!

      • Vst says:

        It’s funny that you’re saying that,because sandwiches In France are well known to be the worst in train & trainstation.
        There’s even an expression “être epais comme un sandwich sncf”. Which reads as being as thin as a [Name of the national's trains company]‘s sandwiches.

    • LadyMTL says:

      I don’t live within delivery range of a KFC anymore (probably best for my health AND my waistline, heh) but man, every now and then I still crave it. It’s not even ‘the best’ fried chicken, but lord help me I sometimes want to order a whole bucket just for myself.

      Yep, it’s definitely a good thing that I can’t get it delivered anymore lol.

    • petee says:

      Spicecake38 try Popeye’s.They are the bomb!Much better then KFC.

  4. Lady Baden-Baden says:

    I have little time for this woman – but she looks great in that yellow dress. Won’t food shame her or anyone. Plus sometimes you just need a comfort food fix

    • yanka says:

      No one needs a greasy comfort food fix in a designer’s studio. The smell left behind must have been revolting. He’s trash, she’s trash.

  5. Swack says:

    The yellow dress fits weird. It is smashing her boobs.

  6. FilmTurtle says:

    I had KFC in Prague, out of curiosity about a decade ago, and it was wretched. McDonald’s, however, tasted exactly the same.

    • ME says:

      I won’t lie I had McDonald’s in Paris. I also had the best French bread sandwich at a deli. I was only there for one day and the food was way too expensive. McDonald’s wasn’t cheap either but cheaper than the restaurants there. If you really want to enjoy Paris you gotta go with A LOT of money. I was a student at the time so yeah…lol.

      • lucy2 says:

        I did too, back in my backpacking days. My friend and I would always do at least one authentic local meal wherever we were, but then often filled in with McD’s because it was cheap and we were broke. It was the pre-Euro days, so some places were cheaper than others depending on the currency.

  7. grabbyhands says:

    The biggest thing I’m taking from this is why is David Letterman giving space for her to baby talk about how woke she is and how dedicated to criminal justice she is (when she feels like it) and probably justifying why it’s okay to pretend to be progressive when your husband is trying to start his own religious cult and cozying up to fascists.

  8. smee says:

    The staged kiss in the elevator is cringe-worthy.

    Her dress looks like one of those bodysuits that have the muscles and organs printed on them 😐

  9. Lenn says:

    Did anyon see on het instagram how she had someone film her and Kanye kissing in an elevator? Sort of like they were being ‘caught’. All to fix the kisscam kiss gone wrong.

  10. Léna says:

    We have KFC, Burger King, McDonald’s, Chipotle, Dunkin Donuts, Five Guys… We are sadly invaded by this type of fast food :) but I heard Chipotle is good (considering the rest)

    • Nancypants says:

      Well, there are Chipotles all around here and they are pretty good.
      Always busy but I think it might be more about a ton of food for pretty cheap and it’s fast.

      You go through a line and tell the servers what you want on your bowl or burrito.
      Usually, chicken, steak or carne asade then choose black beans or pinto beans, rice (white or brown), fajita veggies (yummy), cheese (You can skip whatever you don’t want.) and then move down to the good stuff: guacamole! They do have good guac and it’s no extra charge now and they give you a ladle of it. There are 3 kinds of salsa and chips and sour cream and queso, so, plenty to choose from and most let you order online and pick-up.
      It’s very popular. I think I’ve just been spoiled by great Mexican food.

    • lucy2 says:

      Not gonna lie, I love Five Guys. I’m glad there’s not one too close to me, or I’d go way more than I should.
      KFC is gross to me though.

  11. Char says:

    You go to Jean Paul Gaultier studio in Paris, a place that must be filled with expensive clothes and bring a bucket of food that can stain someting? Why? To show how kool you are? Klassless.

  12. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Plebs.
    Not for the fact of the KFC – I’m vegetarian, but if someone wants to chow down on a bucket, well, it’s up to them; but for thinking it’s appropriate to gnaw on wings during an haute couture fashion show
    Why are they even there?

  13. BANANIE says:

    I agreed that she looked liked she gained weight in the yellow dress but then I saw the tight clothes and she still looks very thin- I think it’s just a testament to how unflattering that yellow dress is.

  14. Delph says:

    Lol you guys make me laugh yes we do have sh***y food here too

  15. Mina says:

    I don’t eat kfc in Chicago. It’s either my great aunts fried chicken or harolds. Had kfc in Osaka, Japan which was teriyaki and delicious

  16. Sparky says:

    Or product placement?

  17. incognito08 says:

    I like to travel abroad and immerse myself in different cultures and dine on their traditional foods. However, I am often curious about their fast food offerings and like to try them at least once to compare with what we are served. I had McDonald’s in Paris and it tasted a lot better than what they serve us in the States. The fries, meat consistency and seasoning were superior to ours. I also had KFC in Dubai and it tasted better over there too.

  18. Nancypants says:

    That photo of Kanye with a bucket of KFC makes me grin.
    He’s like, “Screw it. I’m hungry.” and you know Kim yelled, “Save me a leg!”

    That said, how rude?? You wouldn’t take chicken into Macy’s or Bergdorf’s or someplace much less a designer’s studio.
    This is what gives Americans a bad name.

    I prefer Popeye’s or Church’s but I’ll have a hunk of Original now and then and, yes, Grandma made the best fried chicken I’ve ever had and none of us have been able to copy it. Sigh.
    Probably because she had a cast iron skillet that was 50 years old and fried in grease.

    My husband was sent to Italy (I know, right??) for a few months and the company had a bus that would take whoever wanted to go on a day trip each weekend and the first one my husband went on went to Rome.
    Guess where everyone wanted to eat? McDonald’s. Freakin’ McDonald’s.
    My husband took his little translator thing and took off and had good Italian food for not much more money.

    Two of my men and I were in Kuwait and we ate very well while there but were late getting back one night and stopped at McDonald’s. Tasted the same but after 3 days, I was ready to have that cheeseburger surgically removed.

    • petee says:

      Luv Popeye’s!They are the best!

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Yes, to grandma’s fried chicken! Mine made the best too and we can’t replicate it either! And we actually have (and often use) her old cast iron skillets. I guess it’s an art.that can’t be taught!
      Also, Popeyes for the best fast food chicken. KFC is gross.

      • Nancypants says:

        There are my Popeye’s people!

        I know Grandma used that ancient skillet and I know she fried in mostly leftover bacon grease – maybe some Crisco – and I know she soaked the chicken in buttermilk overnight but I don’t know how she got that crust.
        She was pure country so salt and pepper and flour was probably all she used. I wish I had paid more attention.

      • Mle428 says:

        I just same here to say that I would consider selling my soul to accurately reproduce my granny’s fried chicken. Omg…

  19. kellebelle says:

    Rarely will you see a person more in love with herself than this trick.

  20. Jules says:

    like attracts like, junk eating junk.

  21. ChillyWilly says:

    Their lives are so bizarre. In Paris to buy more ugly fashion and eat KFC. Where are their kids while they are flying to France just to take selfies for Instagram? It’s so weird.

  22. Aimee says:

    I seriously doubt Kim ate any of that food and she still has no taste in clothes. Money can’t buy it honey!

  23. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    All I have is I’m in like with those mirrors. And the architecture in the reflection behind the KFCer is très magnifique.

  24. so says:

    Aaaaand the KFC restaurant they visited has already put a plaque to honor their presence… * Maximum eyeroll*

    here in Quebec it’s called PFK-Poulet Frite de Kentucky. it says that on the signs and the buckets.

  26. zen says:

    what? guys com on. of course theres a kfc in france as well just like mcdonalds and what not. people in all countries love junk food and i dont agree with the dissing. sometimes u have to have a really quick meal when on the run and maybe that is the situation here…this is stupid
