Kris Jenner’s Great Gatsby Themed Birthday and Her Daughters’ Cool Present
Happy birthday, Kris Jenner! Keeping up with the Kardashians star and mother of six, Kris Jenner celebrated her 60th birthday at the Lot Studios in West Hollywood on November 5, in a perfect Kardashian style. To celebrate the matriarch’s birthday, the family traveled back to the Roaring Twenties, throwing a Great Gatsby-themed party in which, of course, no expense was spared.
Each one of the reality stars embraced the theme in different ways: while most of the family members just opted for some lavish themed costumes, Kendall Jenner went all the way down dressing up as Daisy Buchanan, the woman who fell in love with Jay Gatsby. The newly appointed Victoria’s Secret model wore a blonde wig with finger waves, a headband and a silver sequined mini dress, while her elder sister Kourtney played the Gatsby role wearing a smoking hot men’s tuxedo (which actually takes the Twenties theme to a whole new level, given the fact that unisex pieces were all over the place, during that decade). She also backcombed her dark locks in a tight, sleek bun.
Kylie, although probably less authentic to the era, wore a stunning silver gown, a dark red lipstick and long eyelashes, which made her eyes look even more sensual thanks to a sophisticated updo. Eight months pregnant Kim Kardashian, who came along with her husband, singer, composer and recently fashion designer Kanye West, wore a glittery silver long dress with a plunging neckline. West opted for a more classic black tuxedo.
The birthday girl stood out from the crowd with a diamond headpiece, a short black bob and a full-length white dress. Last but not least, Khloe wore a curve-hugging floor length gown, which incredibly enhanced her silhouette, and a matching cap which covered her blonde hair.
Over 300 guests followed Kris Jenner’s Great Gatsby theme on her birthday party, making the (2$ million) bash look like a realistic (Mid)night in Paris in the ’20s. However, although everybody looked undeniably nice and seemed to be having a lot of fun, it is interesting to point out the anachronistic turn of the party, which took inspiration from a book that, as much as anything, focused on criticizing the American excess and the consumer society.
Criticism aside, Kris Jenner received another special gift on her 60th birthday. Her five daughters recorded and uploaded a parody video based on her notorious 30th birthday song and subsequent video, wherein Kris herself drives around Los Angeles reinterpreting Randy Newman’s ’80s success ‘I Love L.A.’ . Moreover, as a bonus, Kim’s husband Kanye West went onstage during the party, taking the microphone and singing happy birthday to Kris (of course being loyal to his unique style). Let’s face it: the Kardashians really know how to party!
