Kim Kardashian Opens Up About Rob's Baby, Kylie Jenner's Breakup and Diamonds from Kanye West
PEOPLE caught up with the star at the de Grisogono terrace suite in Cannes on Tuesday, and she opened up about how she and the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner crew is doing.
When it comes to brother Rob Kardashian‘s recent announcement that he’s expecting a baby with fiancée Blac Chyna, Kardashian West, 35, said while she hasn’t come up with any gift ideas just yet, the family is looking forward to the new addition.
“Everyone is doing really great,” she said. “Everyone is super excited.”
Kardashian West also said little sister Kylie Jenner, 18, is doing “fine” after splitting from Tyga, her boyfriend of nearly two years, earlier this month. (Of the breakup, sources told PEOPLE there was tension over his alleged cheating and Tyga’s decision to comment on his ex Chyna’s engagement to Rob.)
“I think it’s one of the most glamorous places,” said the star, who was invited to Cannes by de Grisogono founder Fawaz Gruosi. “Why not come here? It’s heaven!”
“Fawaz and I met years ago in Paris at an event – we sat next to each other,” said Kardashian West. “I love jewelry and diamonds and even today seeing the pieces he has, and the rough diamonds that haven’t been cut yet are so crazy fascinating to me. It was a natural fit.”
Though she noted some of her sisters didn’t tag along for the trip, including Kylie, she thinks “once they see all the jewelry I have as options tonight they’ll be jealous.”
“I just saw the most amazing stones and pieces. It’s fascinating to me, because not only did I see the different collections, and everything I saw were one-of-a-kind pieces, but I also saw the stones,” she said. “When you have the genius behind behind it … It’s really a fascinating process.”
“I think what’s so special about this collection is every piece is a statement piece,” she added. “You try to make that statement. There are so many options – I’m rushing back to the room to figure out what to wear!”
Of the collaboration, Kardashian West said that “it’s been fun picking up everything I love” – and the glamorous vibe of the star-studded city doesn’t hurt either: “There are armed guards everywhere so you feel very important!”
And in the meantime, with a little luck hubby Kanye West might get some wedding anniversary gift ideas.
Any piece specifically she has in mind?
“Everything!” said the star.
