Kim Kardashian celebrates 190 million Instagram followers in Amina Muaddi heels

DUBAI: Reality star and entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West took to Instagram to celebrate hitting 190 million followers over the weekend — and she did it in style thanks to Jordanian-Romanian footwear designer Amina Muaddi.

Kardashian posted a series of snaps in which she’s wearing a tan outfit — complete with glistening leather trousers and a fitted top — which she accessorized with a pair of Muaddi’s in-demand heels.

“190 million, seriously I love u guys so much!!!  I appreciate you all more than you know. Please VOTE! You have the power to change your future!” Kardashian captioned the post, referencing the Nov. 3 presidential election in the US.

The heels she picked out were Muaddi’s Holli slingbacks in the shade Sand Watersnake, featuring a lizard embossed leather upper with a leather sole and a modest 3.5 inch heel.

Kardashian championed the Paris-designed, Italy-made brand a few weeks after Muaddi took to social media with the announcement that she was expanding her business with a new handbag collection.

The designer told her 573,000 Instagram followers that her new line will be called Aminis.

She shared a series of images of the new bags being manufactured. According to her shots, her rectangular purses will be available in a range of different colors — including purple, black and silver – and sizes. The handles are adorned will be adorned with crystals, some plain, others with a variety of colors.

Muaddi’s cult brand — famous for its signature flared heels —has garnered a loyal following of famous fans, including Dua Lipa, Gigi Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Kendall Jenner and Hailey Baldwin Bieber.

Her most famous collaboration to date is the limited-edition footwear capsule collection with multi-hyphenate superstar Rihanna’s Fenty, which dropped in July.

Rihanna tapped Muaddi to design a collection of shoes for her luxury maison back in December. The news wasn’t all that surprising, considering that the singer-turned-designer has been a longtime fan of Muaddi. 

The designer’s eye-catching shoes also previously featured in Rihanna’s Savage x Fenty show at New York Fashion Week.

Muaddi launched her footwear line in August 2018, approximately one year after departing from her role as co-founder and creative director of luxury footwear label Oscar Tiye.

Where We Are Going Today: Magnolia Bakery

If you are in Riyadh, bored with studying at home and looking for a quiet place where you can stay for hours with guaranteed good coffee and goodies, then you will certainly enjoy Magnolia Bakery and cafe.
Magnolia is a famous chain of bakeries founded in New York City in 1996. It has a cozy European vintage style, offering a wide variety of classic American desserts.
Mention Magnolia Bakery and perhaps the first thing that comes to mind is the fresh daily baked cupcakes.
The extra-fluffy vanilla cupcakes are a treat for the eyes and tastebuds — with their simply decorated pastel colors that will take you back to childhood with the first bite and which are topped with the tastiest buttercream and sprinkles.
The cafe is also known for its signature banana pudding, a tasty mix of custard, mashed banana and cake.
The bakery is more than just an ordinary cafe experience. The interior, vibes and cake display are just like Europe’s corner cafes. As you walk in the place smells of fresh cakes, and all the delicious desserts on offer will make you feel like you are in the middle of a festival.
From classic music to the comfortable chairs, this is the perfect spot on the Riyadh Front to work from. The bakery will open its first branch in Jeddah by 2021.
