Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing threw a birthday celebration in Los Angeles on Friday night, and pretty much every celeb was there to take a selfie. And by that, I mean several members of the Kardashian-Jenner clan -- including Kim, Kourtney and Kris -- and by "a selfie," I mean multiple selfies.
And they took selfies with each other, and sometimes they took them with Willow and Jaden Smith, who were also attending. And still other times, professional photographers from Getty Images were also taking pictures of them -- while they took pictures of themselves.
All this sounds very confusing in words, but basically, it means stuff like this happened:
Jaden Smith snapped a quick selfie with Kim and Kourtney Kardashian and his sister, Willow, as they cozied up together on a sparkly bench.
But we can see that photo from at least two angles, since a pro photog was nearby, capturing it all for news outlets (like us!).
This happened a few times, and it was cool to see the juxtaposition of cell-phone quality camera and expensive lens capturing the same moments.
Like this one of Kris Jenner, Kourtney, Kim, Jaden and Willow hanging with Mary J. Blige and Jada Pinkett-Smith.
And the *profesh* version of it as well.
Of course, there were more selfies than that. There was the in-car, en-route-to party selfie with Kim and Kourtney.
And the sisters with the b-day boy selfie.
But both of those seem more candid and loose than the comparatively stiff press image from their entrance.
All this just proves that selfies are probably the real documents of people's raging inner monologues, especially those at glitzy b-day bashes in glamorous spots in LA. We'll always rely on press photos. But there's a reason why Kim's book Selfish is important, even if it didn't do so hot numbers-wise.
