In terms of celebrity events and Aussie-centric news, it's been a pretty massive week to keep up with! First came the sad news that Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom have parted ways after six years together — but what got people talking the most was that the pair were spotted hanging out together the next day. Kim Kardashian celebrated her 33rd birthday in style, Katy Perry hit Sydney (and the shops!) and Princess Mary and Prince Frderik wrapped up their whirldwind trip Down Under during the week. And let's not forget the celebrity pregnancy announcement, a new couple making their first appearance together, and Angelina Jolie hanging out on the Gold Coast! There's plenty more to see, click through to catch up.
Kim Kardashian turns 33 today, and we're celebrating her big day with a look back at her most memorable Instagram pics. She's constantly on the go, filming multiple TV shows, jetting off to promotional appearances, and travelling to exotic locations for bikini-filled holidays. Kim loves to share everything on Instagram — including personal photos of her daughter, North West, and private moments with boyfriend Kanye West — so click through to see some of her best candid shots. And happy birthday, Kim!
Kim Kardashian got back to work on Tuesday when she filmed a scene for her reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, with sister Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick, and friend Blac Chyna. In addition to her LA outing, Kim tweeted photos of herself "on set" with her family filming what looked like a Christmas scene last week. She popped up in LA with her crew just as a new, incredibly revealing interview with Kanye West aired on BBC Radio 1. The rapper opened up about his relationship with Kim and praised her and her family for their support, saying, "Family time; it's what Kim gave me. She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system. She was in a powerful enough situation where she could love me without asking me for money, which is really hard for me to find." Kanye also revealed that he plans to change the paparazzi laws for his daughter, North West, to make it so that she, and, presumably, other celebrities, would get paid for having their photos taken by photographers.
Kim's new scenes came after a big weekend with Kanye. The two went on a double date with Tyga and Blac on Friday evening and they met up with Oprah and Diddy at a party later on that weekend. Kim was excited to be hanging out with Oprah and Diddy, sharing a snap of the foursome on Instagram and writing, "Oh no big deal." In other news, it was recently announced that Kim will be lending her voice in a cameo appearance on Fox's American Dad, which will air later in the season.
The Kardashian Kollection ready to wear line is set to hit Australia for the first time, with an exclusive Australian range making its runway debut at Sydney's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival in August. Following on from the success of the Kardashian Kollection handbag line, the apparel, already sold in the US and UK, will include wardrobe staples such as dresses, jackets, blouses, shorts and skirts with a distinct Kardashian edge. We caught up with Kim, Khloè and Kourtney ahead of their Australian release to find out a little bit more about the ranges.
POPSUGAR Fashion: Tell us about the inspiration behind the current bag line?
Khloè: There's a lot of quilting, studs and buckle hardware. It's classic looking styles like bowlers, shoppers, totes and clutches but with fun, modern detailing and hardware.
PF: What would be the top 5 never-leave-home-without items in your handbag?
Kim: A great lip balm or lip gloss, sunglasses, my cell phone, keys and wallet. Those are the essentials!
PF: How different is designing and producing handbags to designing and producing clothing?
Khloè: Designing handbags is so much fun. Like shoes, a girl can never have too many bags, so there are endless possibilities when designing them. Our clothing lines feature more trend-driven and seasonal items, whereas a lot of our bags are staple, classic-looking pieces that you can carry at any time of the year.
This week's round-up of the Top 10 best-dressed stars painfully reminds us that our friends in the US have just kicked off what's bound to be a long, hot Summer. How can we tell? Between the lighter shades everyone's wearing, all that denim, the sexy shorts and the sunglasses, it's impossible not to see that celebrity street style has suddenly taken on a very beachy vibe, no matter the location. Miranda Kerr and Ashley Madekwe both wowed us with their chic Summer-in-the-city ensembles (not to mention those legs for days!), while Victoria Beckham's structural yellow vest had us sighing out loud, for all the right reasons. We're not done yet — there were seven other celebrities whose cool off-duty looks we couldn't get enough of. Click through now to see them all!
Kris Jenner joined her daughters Khloé Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian for a frozen yoghurt stop in LA yesterday. The trio were all smiles for the outing, which came after the news that Kim Kardashian gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, in LA over the weekend. Kim and Kanye are reportedly still deliberating over the baby's name but she did reveal that she is enjoying motherhood to pal Ryan Seacrest.
Kim's friends and family have been sharing details about the new baby. Proud aunt Khloé took to Twitter on Sunday to announce her happiness, while Kim's mum, Kris, gushed about her new granddaughter to reporters at the Daytime Emmys later that day, saying, "We are all good and extremely happy and thrilled for the new baby. [The baby] is doing great and beautiful. So very exciting." Kim's family members were not the only ones to spread the love, since the couple's friend Beyoncé Knowles publicly congratulated Kim and Kanye on her personal website.
With her famous social circle, Kim Kardashian’s baby shower was always going to be a star-studded affair. The mum-to-be celebrated her impending arrival — she’s due in July — in Beverly Hills today, with guests including her mum, Kris Jenner, sisters Khloé and Kourtney, and friends Mel B, Kelly Osbourne, Maria Menounos and Kimberly Stewart. Her boyfriend Kanye West was also on hand for the occasion despite reports he was possibly going to be a no-show; he was apparently worried about being the only male at the baby shower, but he arrived with Scott Disick and Lamar Odom. Kanye also brought his family along.
It was a brunch event and People reports that guests enjoyed waffles, pancakes and fruit. Activities included the usual baby shower games like guessing the baby’s name. Some of the female guests also wore wreaths made out of baby’s breath in their hair, such as Kelly, who swapped her studded headband for the more appropriate headpiece.
The baby’s sex was also revealed in the season eight premiere of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which just aired — Kim and Kanye are having a girl!
