Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Hold Hands at Chanel’s Arts Festival

Kim Kardashian & Kanye WestIf you weren't invited to last night's Chanel-sponsored TriBeCa Film Festival Artists Program dinner honoring major art stars like Kara Walker and Cindy Sherman, you shouldn't worry about it: who would want to be part of any club which would have Kim Kardashian as a member?

In truth, the reality TV star and American princess crashed the party as famous fashion designer and Obama-certified "jackass" Kanye West's date. For those of you that don't go on the Internet, let me bring you up to speed on the subtext: Kim and Kanye are both publicity junkies who have been living out their adult lives jumping from one high-profile relationship to the next. Both stars prefer short-term flings — so short-term that even Kim Kardashian's most major romantic commitment, a marriage, lasted only 72 days.

Even though they haven't confirmed their relationship, Kim and Kanye have been running around New York City together and doing a very good job of drawing as much attention to themselves as possible.

Not only was Kim photographed leaving Kanye's apartment and dining with him at night, but she also set out in public wearing the letters "KW" as earrings. In short, they're behaving exactly like any other couple in love, if getting special-order accessories with your new sweetheart's initials and flaunting them in front of the paparazzi is how you choose to honor a new relationship.

Unrelated: Kim has just signed a $40 million contract with E! to extend Keeping Up With the Kardashians for another three years.
