Kaia Gerber Tried to Apply Perfume With a Broken Arm, and the Struggle Is Real

Kaia Gerber, the progeny of supermodel Cindy Crawford, has become a supermodel in her own right. The 18-year-old has become one of the most in-demand runway walkers, and she stars in several fashion and beauty ad campaigns, like that of Marc Jacobs Daisy. And she’s not going to let a little thing like a humongous arm cast get in the way of enjoying and modeling the perfume she promotes.

Earlier this week, Gerber posted a photo of herself in which she’s in a setting similar to her Daisy commercial — a flower-sprinkled field — and even her white dress evokes the feel of the ad. But there’s one really big difference: Gerber is wearing a blue cast on her right arm, from her hand all the way up past her elbow.

From Harper’s BAZAAR

It looks like the Kardashian and Jenner beauty empires are about to get even bigger with the help of one Kanye West. TMZ just reported that the designer and music mogul filed a trademark for Yeezy beauty. The trademark covers Yeezy makeup, fake lashes, face masks, nail polishes, body oils, shaving creams, haircare, perfume, toothpaste, and even deodorant.

This isn’t West’s first beauty and cosmetics trademark. Back in 2017, he filed a similar trademark for Donda cosmetics, named after his mother who tragically passed away in 2007. Though it makes sense that he would potentially want to expand his Yeezy brand. Forbes recently announced that West reached billionaire status this year thanks to his sell-out sneakers and fashion partnership with Adidas.

We asked West’s wife Kim Kardashian West about the possibility of a Kanye-backed beauty line back in 2017.
