From her impossibly glossy bouffant to her permanent mani-pedi and monochrome maternity wear, Kim Kardashian’s personal grooming regime is stricter than Gwyneth’s kids’ TV watching schedule.
But it seems pregnancy may have softened the high maintenance mama as she has been spotted out and about in LA wearing a pair of – wait for it – flat shoes.
Reality star Kim has previously asserted her aversion to sensible footwear, saying, “People are like, ‘You should start wearing flats.’ And I’m like, OK, I just went and bought flats for the first time this week and I can’t wear them. They’re not me. Heels make me feel so good.”
Whether Kim’s shocking U-turn is the result of swollen feet, or the influence of fashion-crazed beau Kanye West is not yet confirmed, but clearly the lady herself is feeling as flabbergasted as we are.
“I never thought I would ever say this…,” she tweeted, “But I’m wearing flats today.”
This news – dubbed Flatgate by, er, us – comes hot on the heels of the less-shocking revelation that Kim and Kanye are planning a black and nursery for their impending arrival.
Posting this inspiring interior image on her official website, she mused, “I found this photo on Pinterest of a room that incorporates black and white stripes in a way that is simple and chic.”
Perhaps this was the thinking behind the black and white panelling on her unique fit-n-flare overcoat too?
