‘I really didn’t know what to get him for his 30th birthday [on Sept. 10]. He has enough, I mean, look at me, he has this,’ the Modern Family star, 39, quipped while motioning to himself.

He went on to note that the one thing Mikita wanted for his birthday was a pair of Kanye West’s rare Yeezy sneakers. Luckily, Ferguson knows hairstylist Jen Atkin, who is a part of the glam squad for the rapper’s wife, Kim Kardashian.

‘My friend Jen was literally on the phone with Kim Kardashian. And I was like, ‘I need a size 11 of the snow-white, gray sneaker,” Ferguson recalled. ‘And she was like, ‘Okay, Kim’s going in the back room to see if she can find that.’ And I just pictured Kim in a Foot Locker outfit going in the backroom to find a size.’

Shockingly, West’s pregnant-again wife, 34, was unable to locate the pair Ferguson needed, and the rest of the Kardashian family came up empty, too.

But Mikita still got the Yeezy sneakers. Watch the clip to find out how!

Last month, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West showed up at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in Los Angeles, where West famously photo bombed Kim’s selfie with the presidential candidate. And when Clinton visited The Tonight Show Wednesday, host Jimmy Fallon had one big question for her: ‘Did you know who Kim Kardashian was’?

‘Of course I did! Absolutely,’ Clinton laughed. ‘I didn’t know they were coming. They were just delightful! I really enjoyed meeting them and talking with them. And she’s a pro about the selfie deal. She says to me, ‘You wanna take a selfie’? I said sure.’

Clinton went on to explain that while it’s often her staff who runs her own social media, she understands the importance of it in our culture. ‘It is the way to communicate,’ she said. ‘You have to be involved in hearing what’s on people’s minds and responding. I actually like it. I think it’s a great way for people to feel like they’re sharing ideas, they’re part of a bigger community than you could ever be in reality.’ Exposure among Kim’s 46 million Instagram followers is pretty sweet too.

It’s widely acknowledged that Kim Kardashian West has mastered the art of the selfie’her ode to auto-portraiture, Selfish, was released earlier this year, and her Instagram account reveals a seemingly endless collection of snaps featuring KKW, shot by KKW. So when Style Editor Edward Barsamian caught up with the reality star yesterday, it was only natural that he requested a Kim-centric selfie of his very own. Barsamian handed over his phone (which boasts no special photography apps or features), but the device was quickly vetoed by the expert, who cited lack of lighting as her biggest grievance. And so her secret was revealed when Kardashian West grabbed her own phone, housed in a LuMee case. Lit from the front with LED strips, the case instantly brightened up the photo. ‘It was like night and day,’ says Barsamian of Kardashian West’s secret weapon. ‘We went from being’well, me, at least’tired-looking to refreshed, awake, and beautiful, all with the simple addition of lighting around the phone.’ Now, if only nailing Kim’s perfectly practiced poses were quite so easy. Style Editor Edward Barsamian strikes a pose with Kardashian West.
