There's something really tacky about a celebrity who flaunts her wealth with photos of expensive jewellery on Instagram, including a $4.5 million engagement ring.
It says a lot about Kim Kardashian's true character. Perhaps she believes it makes her a more interesting celebrity when instead, it just shows a very shallow side to her personality.
Because she documents every move she makes, she should have seen this coming. She told the world she was coming to Paris and she was likely to bring along her fabulous jewellery collection.
Chanel creative director Karl Langerfeld got it right when he said "You cannot display your wealth and then be surprised that some people want to share it with you."
The fashion icon doesn't have any sympathy for Kim after she was held at gunpoint and robbed of nearly $10 million in jewels at her French hotel and said instead "It's a very bad thing for Paris."
Kim was staying at the exclusive Hotel de Pourtales, a boutique hotel popular with celebrities visiting Paris, despite its minimal security. Kim was seen on Snapchat flashing her massive 20 carat emerald-cut ring on Sunday night, just half and hour before five attackers broke into her room, tying her up and fleeing with the jewellery.
Langerfeld made the comments after his Chanel show at Paris Fashion Week despite his supposedly close relationship with Kim and West - a surprising comment after he recently photographed the couple for Harpers Bazzaar's September issue.
