Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel is feeling some kind of way today. After seeing a picture shared by Kylie Jenner of her daughter Stormi ready for her first day of homeschooling, Frankel is lashing out at the mom. Stormi sports a $12K back-to-school outfit and Frankel says that it represents, “everything wrong with everything.”
Kylie Shares Pic of Stormi
On her Instagram Story on Wednesday, Jenner shared an adorable picture of daughter Stormi. In the image, 2-year-old Stormi rocks a black t-shirt, matching shorts, and chunky white sneakers. However, it’s the toddler’s backpack that has generated the most buzz. The unassuming little pink backpack on Stormi’s back is a Hermes Kelly backpack; worth a jaw-dropping $12K.
AOL shares, “It’s no secret that the Kardashian-Jenner clan loves a Hermès bag. Just last Christmas, Kylie was given five new purses from the design house that all together were valued at over $1 million. Even little Stormi, at such a young age, has showcased her love of a Hermès.
On April 1, 2019, the Lip Kit creator shared a video of the then 14-month-old walking around with a mini hot pink Birkin. ‘She won’t let go of that purse,’ the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star captioned a video. It looks like the apple doesn’t fall from the tree, especially when it comes to luxurious fashion statements.”
Bethenny Slams Kylie
After Frankel caught wind of the post, she had some things to say about the idea of putting a $12K backpack on a toddler. According to AOL, Frankel took to the comment section of Jenner’s Story and said, ““I never say anything about this stuff but this is the most transparent humble brag I’ve seen yet. It’s everything wrong with everything.”
But Frankel wasn’t done. Disgusted with Jenner flaunting her wealth while so many people are suffering during the pandemic, Frankel tweeted, “I commented on @usweekly on a 12k backpack on @KylieJenner daughter. I’m no stranger to an @Hermes_Paris bag & have a daughter & luxury cars, but flaunting(under the guise of a back to school post)during a pandemic & the greatest unemployment crisis in our lifetime is a choice.”
The Kardashians Always Dress to the Nines
It’s unlikely that Frankel’s slam will find purchase with the Kardashian clan. They are no strangers to dressing up their little ones in obscenely expensive merch.
UsWeekly writes, “Stormi isn’t the only Kardashian-Jenner kid that likes to embrace chic school style. On April 8, 2019, the Internet collectively lost their mind when Kim posted an Instagram picture of her and Kourtney dropping North West and Penelope Disick off at school. Surprisingly, it wasn’t for something either mom was wearing, but instead for the shoes on Penelope’s feet.
While North paired her school uniform with $55 white Converse high tops, her 6-year-old cousin was in a pair of Gucci Princetown leather slingback loafers that cost over five times that amount. The adult size of this shoe retails for a little over $600, the kids’ Toddler Princetown leather slipper is $355.
‘Can we talk about P and how cool she is in her tiny Gucci’s,’ one Instagram user wrote. ‘The fact that P wears Gucci loafers to school,’ commented someone else. ‘has me shook.’”
While it may be in poor taste to flaunt wealth when so many people are suffering, it can’t be denied; Stormi looks adorable.
