I saw that Kim K was in my neighborhood looking like THIS yesterday and it got me to thinking. First off, like it or not, she IS beautiful, by nearly any cultural standard. She and her sister Kourtney were at Serafina, which I pass nearly every day, and the people on the street and in the restaurant must have thought they were seeing royalty. They were. Kim represents the a LOT of women’s idea of what beauty and success are. She’s rich, famous for being famous, has a TV show and her every move is documented. And to top it all off she’s a BRAND. (She’s not Hitler’s granddaughter, either. You might not like her but what is that based on? Kimye bashing is a national pastime, at this point.) Without judgement, THIS what young women aspire to. Plus, she married MORE famous – and rich – and talented. They had their fairy tale wedding as the world watched. Living in the Meatpacking for the last decade, believe me, I’ve studied the hoards (could be spelled whore-ds too) teetering on their Choo’s and Louboutin’s (and Pay Less) on cobblestones in their hooker-wear looking for THE hot spot to be seen. Anywhere Kim K shows up is that hotspot… (btw, only tourists ever eat at Serafina…?) LIKE IT OR NOT, she’s their queen.
