Kim Kardashian West is being mommy shamed again… This time for doing what all moms do – allow their daughter’s to straighten their hair when they reach a certain milestone. That’s right, KKW is being shamed for allowing North West to step out with a straight ponytail on her 5th birthday Friday, June 15th.
I remember the first time I got my hair straightened (with a hot comb, before I gave into the creamy crack) it was for my 10th birthday and I begged my mom to let me wear it lose with a headband instead of in pigtails like a little girl. I was experiencing my rite of passage as black girl and so is Northie.
Recently, I took my curly-haired 4-year-old daughter to Milk and Cookies Kids Spa to get a braided hairstyle and in order for this to happen, the beautician had to wash, conditon, and then blow dry the hair straight so that it was easier to braid. My baby girl loved her hair straight and I would do it again when she’s much older because I love her curls. Selfish, I know…
Kim straightening North’s hair is no big deal to me because the girls in this family are known for their slick, straight, mermaid-like hair.
Let Northie enjoy being a 5-year-old and leave Kim alone! She’s doing what mommies do for their little girls. I would do the same!
Kendall Jenner and big sister Kourtney Kardashian attended the 2018 CFDA Awards to support their sister, Kim Kardashian West winning the Influencer Award.
Both sisters looked gorgeous – one in a suit and one in a fluffy feathered pink dress. These girls always take risk and slay at major fashion events!
Here is the full list of the 2018 CFDA Award winners:
Womenswear Designer of the Year: Raf Simons of Calvin Klein
Menswear Designer of the Year: James Jebbia of Supreme

Influencer Award: Kim Kardashian West
During her acceptance speech, Kim Kardashian West joked that she’s always naked and that she wasn’t expecting to win the Influencer Award from the CFDA but, she did and I think it’s well deserved.
The Kardashian/Jenner haters and some individuals in the fashion industry do not understand why she won this new award and I’m a bit confused about all the hate. Let me explain why, Kim and her sisters have influenced the fashion industry for the past decade and no one can take that away from them – her sister won the Icon Award last year.
Personally, Kim made me embrace my curves and want to show them off and try new styles. She even made me feel like I could bounce back and still be sexy as a mom. Kim, the award is well-deserved!
