With Kim Kardashian’s due date quickly approaching, you would thin it would only be a matter of time before all of her close friends and family showered her and rapper-boyfriend Kanye West, 35, lavish baby gifts. Little did they know the controversial couple had a little something different of their sleeves.

It was the pair’s decision to direct all close friends and family to donate to the Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago, which is located in the area that West grew up in. The hospital released a statement, expressing their gratitude.

The baby is do in the next two mouths. This will be both Kardashian’s and West’s first baby. To donate to the hospital click here.

Kim Kardashian: “Ok, ok, I am putting myself on the worst dress list for this outfit!”

with one comment

And she has every right to! After strutting her stuff in a too-big neon jacket paired with a tight, leathered mini skirt, while filming in Florida for “Kourtney and Kim Take Miami,” the reality star admitted “The mirror was lying to me this day!” This example magnifies how a single photo can spawn several stories.

The article, featured on Yahoo Tv!, features a huge photo of Kim in her horrible ensemble. I find this example intriguing because the composition of the photo is what really draws in the audience – that and the fact that no one has ever seen Kim Kardashian exhibit bad fashion taste. The photo’s quality is impeccable and the viewer can really get a good look of what Kim was wearing. From her head to her toes, the visual is stunning – minus the outfit. It’s almost as if the viewer’s job is to judge the photo for themselves and after looking at it, and reading the article, come up with your own opinion of whether you thought it was stylish or pure trash, and that’s pretty much the intent with any multimedia news story, the writer must provide you with several elements in the story so you can ultimately decide what you think. The writer is only there to mediate.

I also noticed that there was a video provided underneath the article, and it was basically about the Kardashian sisters’ clothing line. This article took a somewhat negative issue (Kim’s outfit) and spun it into something else by promoting the Kardashian brand by providing the video at the end. It was a clever way to turn the story around and end with a lighter note instead focusing so much attention on Kim’s bad outfit which wasn’t that bad.

Ultimately, this example shows us that with one horrible outfit and a Kardashian, you’ve pretty much got your headline.
