“Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Kim Kardashian can flaunt her wealth all she wants — as long as her bodyguards are around. Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director of Chanel and the Italian house of Fendi, admonished the reality star for Snapchatting her $4 million engagement ring when her security wasn’t around.
When he was asked about the armed robbery, where more than $11 million in jewelry was stolen, Lagerfeld first lamented for the City of Lights. “It’s a very bad thing for Paris,” the fashion director, 83, told the Associated Press after his Paris Fashion Week show Tuesday.
Lagerfeld was shocked that Kardashian, 35, was alone. “I don’t understand why she was in a hotel with no security and things like this,” he said. “If you’re that famous and you put all your jewelry on the net, you go to hotels where nobody can come near to the room.”

He said Kardashian is “too public” about her wealth. “We have to see in what time we live. You cannot display your wealth then be surprised that some people want to share it,” the designer added.
Before the attack took place, Kardashian posted a video of herself talking to future sister-in-law Blac Chyna. She made sure to show off the diamond ring husband Kanye West gifted her for their engagement.
Hours later, five armed men wearing ski masks broke into Kardashian’s dwelling at 3 a.m. Monday morning. They threatened the doorman and then made it to Kardashian’s room. Once inside, they gagged her and locked her in the bathroom. Along with the jewelry, one of her phones was stolen, too.
She issued a statement through her rep after the attack. “Kim Kardashian West was held up at gunpoint inside her Paris hotel room this evening, by two armed masked men dressed as police officers. She is badly shaken but physically unharmed,” Kardashian's spokesperson Ina Treciokas told CNN Monday.
