Kylie Jenner’s Expensive Baby Stroll Ushers Resurgence of Fendi Double F Brand

Kylie Jenner is helping designer Karl Lagerfeld bring back the 53-year old French designer Fendi’s monogram logo back in style with her recent Instagram snap of herself outifitted in a skin tight Fendi mini dress pushing her three month old daughter Stormi in a monogram Fendi baby carriage while carrying her essentials in a vintage Fendi  Fanny pack with the logo on it as well.

The stroller retails for $12,500 so the money emoji she punctuated the caption to the photo, “Stormi Strolls” with is quite appropriate!

The logo became part of popular culture through TV shows like Sex & The City and its prominence within the old school hip ho music scene. As upscale retail site Heroine pens in its blog post:

 The world of Hip-hop has always had a thing for the Fendi logo: Dapper Dan of Harlem used fake Fendi fabrics featuring the Double F to dress artists on stage and off-duty and Kanye West became a living advert when he shaved the Fendi logo onto the side of his head in 2006 while attending a party the brand was hosting in Tokyo, Japan. Fendi became a prime choice for male and female rappers, and many rappers and urban artists have used Fendi in their lyrics. The brand is referenced in many songs including Black Eyed Peas’ 2005 hit My Humps, Yo Gotti’5 Star Chick remix from 2009 and in Kanye West‘s Don’t Stop a year later, and Chamillionaire’s Gucci & Fendi in 2012. But, the name-drop isn’t the prerogative of hip-hop: Lady Gaga also cites Fendi in her 2013 song Fashion.

Add a logo diaper bag, which retails for about $1430, to the ensemble and you got a very expensive stroll!

Jenner’s half sister Kim Kardashian -West promoted the logo brand in a recent post as well. I can dig it. The trend-setting Kardashian/Jenners are at it again:

Style and fashion blog Heorine added to its treatment of the resurgence of the brand which Kylie’s sister Kendall promoted when she walked for the line recently:

 

Fendi’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, Karl Lagerfeld brought back the 53 years old emblem to the catwalk. Modeled by Kendall Jenner, a cropped fur blouson and matching tote bag were printed in the brand’s iconic Zucca print, while Lexi Boling was dressed in a knee-length fur coat trimmed with the brand’s monogram. For the Autumn/Winter 2019 collection, the inverted Zucca again played an essential role. Karl Lagerfeld understands the power of branding, and Fendi’s logo is a key element of the brand’s overarching strategy. Celebrities, too, know how to play with such iconography. In February 2018, Kim Kardashian posted a selfie on her Instagram account, on all fours, dressed in vintage Fendi logo stockings with a matching tied-up top, the caption reading: “Fendi Fan.”Logomania is in, and the Italian brand is at the forefront of the trend.

Fendi’s inverted Zucca has become, like most fashion logos, a sign of style appurtenance. It makes one feel part of a certain elite synonymous with Italian high fashion, high drama, and high craftsmanship. It is the coat of arms of an empire that helps keep the Fendi spirit alive and desirable thus its Helvetica typeface being easily and widely counterfeited around the world. Lagerfeld’s perspicacious creativity has led him to design one of our favourite luxury hallmarks in just “three seconds.”

The celebrity mom took to Twitter to answer questions about her life as a parent a few weeks ago. “There really was no worst part,” Kylie said of her experience with pregnancy. “Probably not being able to eat sushi,” Kylie mused. “I had such a perfect experience. she moved a lot,” the celebrity mom said.

Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson Welcome Their Daughter (UPDATED)

Congratulations to Khloe Kardashian on the birth of her first child, daughter, in a hospital outside Cleveland, Ohio this morning, TMZ reports.

The Good American Apparel co-founder announced her pregnancy with NBA‘s Cleveland Cavaliers star, Tristan Thompson, just last December after much speculation.

Since then, the Revenge Body on E! host has been sharing a lot about her pregnancy experience through her personal app and website, from what’s inside her hospital bag to her pregnancy fitness and post-baby exercise routine.

The delivery comes on the heels of very public videos, suggesting that her beau since September 2016 was cheating on her with a woman in NY and a couple of other women at a hookah lounge outside DC last October. Neither Khloe, her family or Thompson have publicly addressed the reports.

Today, it was reported that the family is rallying around the youngest adult female Kardashian. (Her brother Rob Kardashian‘s daughter Dream Kardashian technically is the youngest Kardashian)

According to an insider to E! News:

the 33-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians star went into labor on Wednesday. After her water broke, the reality star went into labor for “several hours,” per another source. She then delivered the baby at a Cleveland hospital Thursday morning. Thankfully, her mother, Kris Jenner, her sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian, and her BFF, Malika Haqq, were all there for support.

“She labored with Kris all day on Wednesday,” the first insider said.

The first insider also said the baby’s father, Tristan Thompson, was there for the birth. The Cleveland Cavaliers player had a game against the New York Knicks in Ohio on Wednesday.

“He wants to spend as much time with the baby as he can,” the first insider added.

The birth came days after videos of Thompson kissing and being intimate with other women surfaced online. The second source told E! News Khloe is “distraught” over the allegations but is focusing on the baby. While the aforementioned source said Khloe wants the baby to have a relationship with the father, the insider also said she and Thompson are not on good terms. Khloe also reportedly plans to head back to Los Angeles as soon as possible and raise the child there.

The new baby will have plenty of cousins: in addition to Dream, whose mom is Blac Chyna (real name Angela Renee White), North, Saint and Chicago West (daughters and son of Kim Kardashian-West and husband Kanye West); Stormi Webster (daughter of her half-sister Kylie Jenner and her hip hop star boyfriend Travis Scott, real name Jacques Webster); and Penelope, Mason and Reign Disick (daughter and sons of Kourtney Kardashian and her ex Scott Disick)

The baby’s arrival was showered at a lavish pink baby shower earlier this year.

Congrats to Khloe and we are thinking and praying for a healthy recovery and that she overcomes this very stressful situation.

The baby also has a half-brother, Thompson’s 1-year-old son Prince from a previous relationship with Jordan Craig, who is first cousin to our other Bumpwatch alum, Eniko  Parrish Hart.

Kylie Jenner Just Shared a Close Up Photo of Stormi Webster and She’s Gorgeous!

It was a week after make up mogul and  reality TV star Kylie Jenner complained about not using Snapchat much anymore that the social media app’s stock to fell more than 7 percent (a loss of $1.3 billion in market value).  The youngest of the Jenner/Kardashian clan  has redeemed her love for the video sharing platform (and hopefully some stock value) after sharing a sweet video of her gorgeous one month old baby girl, Stormi Webster on Snapchat on Friday, March 2.

The Life of Kylie star’s quick vid was captioned, “my pretty girl” while daddy, rapper Travis Scott, shared his own version of the same photo of baby sucking on a purple pacifier all bundled and snug in an off white furry blanket.

Stormi’s closeup pic debuted a few days after her cousin Chicago West appeared on Snapchat.  No wonder the fans of Kim Kardashian West and Jenner are feuding. These coincidentally-timed reveals give the fans a lot of fodder to play with.  It appears, along with Dream Kardashian, the girl cousins may grow and be close the same way Penelope Disick and North West are buddies. 

The sisters dismissed it in Twitter responses.

So fucking lame!!! Kim and I are saying how much it has changed and why the divide. We are sisters, best friends and most of all supporters of each other. Bizarre https://t.co/4PowCoMLsC

Kim Kardashian And Kanye West Named Their Daughter Chicago

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West named their new-born daughter, delivered by surrogate on Monday, Chicago West.

Kardashian West said that not carrying the child herself was “so hard”, but that the couple had an instant connection with her.

West was raised in the US city Chicago.

Kardashian West carried and gave birth to her older children but was advised against getting pregnant again because of possible medical complications.

Her daughter North is now four years old and her son Saint is two.

But she suffered from pre-eclampsia and placenta accreta on those occasions.

Pre-eclampsia is a condition that usually occurs in the second half of pregnancy and can cause serious complications including seizures and death if not monitored and treated.

Inside Expecting Chrissy Teigen’s Pan Am Theme 32nd Birthday Party

Second-time mom-to-be Chrissy Teigen celebrated her 32nd Birthday at the Pan Am Experience in Pacoima, California.

The celebration took place aboard a Pan Am American World Airways 747 at the adult theme park. Guests included her husband John Legend, and their couple bffs Kim Kardashian-West and her husband Kanye West. Kim dressed in a Jackie Kennedy Onasis pale pink dress, white heels, dark shades and wore a buffant wig.

Teigen was outfitted in a salmon colored tweet 60s style suit and square handbag, quite fitting with the era theme.

Kim’s mom Kris Jenner attended as well in a black cape, neck scarf and carried vintage luggage.

The party attendees played Bingo and used bingo markers with Teigen’s face on it. She later got up doing a full in-flight demonstration while dangling a fake cigarette from her mouth.

Theme era parties are all the rage among adult celebs. Serena Williams held a 1950s baby shower and Southern Charm’s Cameran Eubanks had a 1960s-era Slim Aarons baby shower.

I Get Why Kim Kardashian-West Didn’t Invite Her Surrogate to Her Baby Shower

Here I am defending Kim Kardashian-West critics again. It has literally become a pastime for me

This time, the KKW Beauty purveyor is being shamed for not inviting her surrogate to her lavish Baby Celebration last week.

During an appearance on the TV talk show The Real, the reality TV star explained her decision to Loni Love.

“I introduced her to my family earlier that day, and I just thought … I don’t know, it was a weird decision to have to make,” Kardashian admitted. “Of course I would have wanted her to be there, and be a part of it, but I hadn’t really gone that far in explaining [the surrogacy] to my kids yet. So I have to figure that out first before they really see, and then if we’re celebrating, you know, her … I just wanted to celebrate the baby,” she continued. “I think I have to explain it to my kids first, and figure out how I’m going to explain it to them.” So, that’s that: it’s all about the kids.”

I get it.

A lot of people in the general public are quite clueless on pregnancy. Surrogacy is very complicated. It is even banned in several countries and some states have very strict rules.

Besides that, similar to adoption, there is a lot of emotional turmoil and angst associated with it. While the surrogate and the parents can become close and have a bond, there is always that fear that the surrogate could develop too much of a bond to the baby she is carrying and resent the parents.

That is what happens in adoption and why birth moms often are not given a chance to hold right after delivery the baby they, pre-birth, have decided to give up for adoption.

When you add young children in the mix, including those who have memories of a previous pregnancy and seeing mommy with a big tummy like her daughter North did with son Saint, I get it.
