Spotted: a voluptuous E! star and her mother trotting through the streets of Paris in an attempt to out-do S and B’s shopping spree on this week’s Gossip Girl premiere. That’s right, Kim Kardashian is rollin’ in it, and she wants everyone to know.
Kim and her mother, Kris Jenner, stopped by the fashion capital’s Hermes boutique and ran up a tab of over $100,000. It would seem that the Kardashian family isn’t having any trouble keeping up.
And the former Reggie Bush flame was buying just any designer bags. Nope. All that dough and the mother-daughter duo stacked up only 7 bags. How? Kim and Kris walked out with a slew of the sacred “Birkin” bags, retailing for $10,000 a piece. (That’s enough to buy 9 or 10 of Marc Jacobs’ latest bags, for those of you who can’t do fashion math.) Even Sex and The City’s hotshot Samantha Jones couldn’t get her hands on a single Birkin without shamelessly dropping names (and a few little lies) – after all, “It’s not a bag, it’s a fucking Birkin!”
But it still doesn’t add up. How did they cross $100,000 finish line? Leave it to Kim’s crowning glory – an extremely rare, crocodile-skin Birkin with a hefty price tag: $30,000. For that kind of cash, you’d think the bag would come with its own matching pet crocodile. But, I guess it’s no problem when your claim to fame (and fortune) is being a part of one of L.A.’s wealthiest families. Oh, there’s, like, a recession? What’s that?
