So here is one of the problems with mainstream papers jumping on the baby bump watch bandwagon. Time magazine published the above photo asking its astute readers to comment on which of these two women, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton or pop culture celebrity Kim Kardashian has the most style influence.
Needless to say, its comment section was filled with the usual Kim K haters spewing some pretty harsh words at the magazine even making a comparison. Since her pregnancy announcement, Kim K’s haters have come out the woodwork in full force finding every opportunity to trash her in the comment sections of various online articles that feature her.
Time asked the wrong question but certainly knows that including these two in a headline will drive traffic. See you are here.
But in truth, each has a very different fan base and are equal style icons to different audiences. There is no comparison. A woman who is demure and loves conservative styles, sleek lines and tailored and polished looks will obviously consider Kate more a style icon. Similarly, a younger, hipper, avante garde, eclectic risk taking fashionista who embraces her sexuality in dress will love Kim K’s style more.
We love both moms-to-be and are looking forward to seeing what they outfit themselves in as their bumps grow to bellies.
