After a baby-induced hiatus this summer, Kim Kardashian has returned to the scene in all of her self-promoting, globe-trotting, Kanye-loving glory! We round up the top 6 signs that prove Kim is back and that motherhood hasn't slowed her down in the least.
Back in the wild.She's come out of hiding in a major way, taking Paris by storm over the weekend with beau Kanye West as the twosome made their first public trip together as parents for Paris Fashion Week. Kardashian posted a photo of herself and West in casual duds as they arrived in the City of Lights with the caption, "Bonjour baby."According to TMZ, the jaunt is indeed a couple's trip, as their 3-month-old daughter North is reportedly chilling at home in Cali with grandmother Kris Jenner.
Still styling.Motherhood apparently hasn't dampened Kardashian's over-the-top fashion sense. She hit the front row of Givenchy's Paris Fashion Week show on Sunday in a cleavage-baring custom dress from the design house. "Thank you Ricky for making this for me the day before the show. I die for you. #Givenchy4lifebaby," shewrote on Instagramin a digital thank-you note to Givenchy creative head Riccardo Tisci.
A new mom's gotta eat, right?She's back to important daily tasks like lunching with friends -- and being photographed in the process. Paparazzi spotted Kardashian looking fabulous in an olive jumpsuit after dining with video model Blac Chyna on Sept. 24. (Amanda Bynes fans may recall that the troubled actress claimed to havemodeled her radical makeover, including cheek piercings, after Chyna, so there's that.)
Promote, promote, promote!Kardashian has returned to doing what she does best: promoting her various product lines up a storm. One look at her Twitter feed, and you'll think you've landed in an online commercial. This tweetfrom last Fridayis a perfect example: "Summer's over but my bronze glow is here to stay #KardashianGlow." Subtle!
Keeping up with work.There will likely always be debate over whether anyone in the Kardashian family actually works, but Kim did reveal some behind-the-scenes pics from the family'sKeeping Up With the KardashiansChristmas special shoot on Sept. 18. "Long beautiful work day with the family! Shot a very fun Christmas special! Can't wait to share more later! Night! Xo"she tweeted.
Maintaining famous friendships.Any new mom knows that life can't be all-baby all the time, so reconnecting with friends is a must. Kardashian took that bit of advice to the next level, since hercircle of friendsapparently includes Oprah Winfrey and Diddy. Kimye hung out with the larger-than-life duo at a star-studded party thrown by music exec Jimmy Iovine last week.
