Red Carpet Confidential: Kim Kardashian Gets Belated-Birthday Surprise From Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West turn heads on three sides of the street when they make their entrance into the Angel Ball benefitting cancer research held Monday at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC.
With fans clamoring for a view, shrieks erupting and flashbulbs popping, it’s a welcome fit for the royal couple, Prince William and Kate Middleton — albeit Kim is America’s reality royalty.
As she waves and stops to perfect her pose with Kanye on her arm, it’s hard to believe that the glamorous couple could be battling jetlag considering they’re hot off their weekend vacation to Italy in celebration of her 32nd birthday Sunday. They appear well-rested and relaxed.
Pal Jonathan Cheban can’t wait to greet his BFF with a token of appreciation to mark the milestone.
“I got her a vintage Chanel birthday gift,” he says. “She’s going to freak out about it!”
Inside, the power couple mingles with the chic crowd that includes Gerard Butler, Ashanti, Nelly, David Arquette, Wendy Williams and Ivana Trump. They dine with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz (who designed her engagement ring from ex Kris Humphries!).
But the real fun starts when Kanye surprises Kim with a chocolate birthday cake, which says “Happy Birthday Kim” and has two candles on it.
She and Kanye even blew out the candles together! So cute.
This match certainly agrees with Jonathan.
“I think it’s awesome,” he tells me. “It’s fun. They’re a perfect match, they both play off of each other, so it’s a good mix.”
He continues, “They love style and fashion, and they love to talk about all that stuff. They’re both always trying to look the best they can, and fashion-forward. Obviously they love each other, too, so it’s a perfect combo.”
Meanwhile, Gerard is having a blast disco-dancing until the very end of the event. The ladies loved it!
The Angel Ball benefitting Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation For Cancer Research raised $3.7 million to help find a cure.
