Can’t keep up with what’s been going on in the social media world? Fret not. Here, a gathering of what stars, artists and brands have been up to this week on social media.
Kanye West, Kim Kardashian and Twitter
When Kanye West tweets, engaged Twitter users fix their trained eyes on his feed — there’s usually something to read there that will undoubtedly offend someone. This week, John Legend, Samuel L. Jackson and more politely shared their frustrations over West’s glowing endorsement of President Donald Trump.
Kim Kardashian, who is catching fire for her latest perfume, attempted to defend her husband’s erratic behavior, but eventually gave up altogether. Her KKW Body scent is being compared to Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classique fragrance, and it seems the designer agrees with critics, captioning a recent photo of his perfume with “keeping up with fragrance news.” On Friday, Kardashian told Allure that she’s aware of the comparison, but said the KKW Body bottle was cast from her own body and inspired by fine-art statues in her home. There’s nothing to keep up with there.
Well done to @KimKardashian for making her perfume bottle in the shape of her body. Just the 15 years behind Jean Paul Gaultier

Meanwhile, Trump is using the endorsement to promote his “Make America Great Again” hat and retweeted West with a note of thanks.
Kate Middleton’s Red Dress
Kensington Palace announced that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s newborn son is named Louis Arthur Charles. Big news, but Twitter fans discovered a piece of film history that briefly trended on Friday, surpassing the announcement of the name itself.

Middleton’s red Jenny Packham dress, clearly meant to resemble Princess Diana’s red ensemble worn on the day of Prince Harry’s birth in 1984, sparked memes on Friday. Mia Farrow’s red dress in Rosemary’s Baby looks awfully similar to Middleton’s, which is a surefire way to get social media users going.
Call it the Middleton Effect…or rather, the Rosemary Effect? Regardless, hi Louis Arthur Charles lol #royalbaby #louisarthurcharles #royalfamily #rosemarysbaby #katemiddleton #britishroyalfamily #duchessofcambridge #princewilliam #royalty #miafarrow #romanpolanski #horror #suspense #wiwt #ootd #dress #red #reddress #lace #newborn #dietprada

The Crown Prince of Costume Jewelry
Speaking of royals, Alexis Bittar’s pop-up shop at The Grove officially rolled in. The shop is inside a Volkswagen Type 2 pickup, gold-dipped of course, and is the perfect place to scoop up some gifts for Mom ahead of Mother’s Day. Pick up the crystal-encrusted spear wire earrings ($175) — Sandra Bullock wore them at CinemaCon on Tuesday.
