Designer of Expensive Shoes, Giuseppe Zanotti, Thinks Kim Kardashian Is an ‘Amazing’ Mother’ to North West (Off-Camera)

Over the last two years, Kim Kardashian has caught some flack for her perceived lack of parenting skills. But not everyone thinks she’s a bad mother to North West.

Giuseppe Zanotti, who designs incredibly expensive shoes and accessories worn by the likes of Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Rihanna, and more, spoke with Forbes about working with Kardashian:

But it’s not just music that he embraces when it comes to today’s pop culture. Mr. Zanotti was amongst the first to work with the Kardashian “klan”, way before they started sitting front row in Paris, or graced the covers of highbrow fashion magazines. “The Kardashian family is very interesting, ’cause they have won over traditional media. It’s interesting to see that the many people who criticize them, still want to keep up with what they’re doing. They’ve caused some sort of a revolution through a fictional media spectacle and their social media. Obviously it’s a game – they’re actors. The Kardashians are very simple people in the end. How they choose to expose themselves to the world, is another thing of course. Off-camera Kim is just an amazing mother.

We’ll leave it up to you to decide what kind of mother Kardashian is on-camera.

Zanotti also revealed that he is collaborating with Beyoncé on a new shoe:

An artist that goes by the name of Beyoncé, also has her first shoe in collaboration with Zanotti coming out, scheduled for release within one or two weeks. “I’m doing a shoe with Beyoncé right now,” Giuseppe tells me while showing me an image of a sketch, from his phone. I’m not able to see what the final product will turn out like exactly, but going by the sketch, Beyoncé has a thing for ultra thick platform stilettos. “Beyoncé has very clear ideas – she knows exactly what she wants. The thing which she then also has over other celebrities, is that she has an amazing voice. She’s incredibly talented and she’s an amazing dancer – she’s complete. Few are like Beyoncé,” the designer says about the multiple Grammy award-winning artist he has known ever since her Destiny’s Child days. “I’m working on finalizing the shoe with her stylist right now. And Beyoncé will then say what she likes and what she doesn’t like. It will be one shoe only,” Zanotti concludes with regards to the shoe that will certainly get the BeyHive craving.

There you have it, straight from Zanotti’s mouth: Kim Kardashian is a good mother, and Beyoncé wants to sell you some shoes.
