With the holidays fast approaching, McPhee is juggling the holiday season with the launch of her first jewelry line, as well as a new Christmas album and a tour with husband David Foster.

“Honestly, we just go, go, go,” Katharine said as she perched on a curly couch at her KMF pop-up event. “We’re trying to do a pop-up, we’re doing all these Christmas specials, we’re touring.”

“This is definitely the first Christmas my son will attend and maybe open a present or two, but we certainly won’t go crazy. We’re going to make it easy for ourselves this year. she continued. “We just like to veg out.”

Katharine and her husband, producer David Foster, welcomed their first child together, a son named Rennie, in 2021. From his previous marriages, David is also the father of five adult children – Allison, 52, Amy, 49, Sara , 41, Erin, 40, and Jordan, 36.

“I like to give practical gifts for Christmas – nothing extravagant – like new suitcases and things like that,” laughed Katharine and added the caveat: “But like nice suitcases, sexy suitcases. ”

While McPhee has a very obvious love for jewelry, in general, the Foster family doesn’t overdo it for Christmas gifts.

“Honestly, we have everything we need,” she said. “We don’t need anything – we really don’t need it. We are so grateful to have what we have…our friends and family, everyone is healthy and [David’s] not a materialistic person at all.

‘Here’s the thing about social media [and] people who comment,” McPhee added. “You have to remember they make that comment and five seconds later they’re not thinking about you.”

On Thursday, the American Idol alum hosted an intimate outdoor pop-up event right in the middle of the shopping capital of Beverly Hills: Rodeo Drive.

She invited fans around the world to participate in a live virtual shopping event and invited a handful of shoppers, loved ones and other celebrities to experience the collection in person.

“It’s just something I always love to play with and I’ve really enjoyed giving people gifts for special occasions,” McPhee said of her new line.

“I love spending hours in front of the little mirror layering pieces and stuff, but a lot of people don’t like to do that.” So many of my pieces [are] double-layered chains to make it look like there’s more than one piece,” she said.

Katharine, who was dressed to perfection in a sophisticated sparkly black suit with feather cuffs, gulped down a Shake Shack cheeseburger with one hand, helped pick up folding chairs with the other and managed to stop for fan selfies at the same time. A master of multitasking, indeed.

It was this kind of women – the multitaskers – that McPhee had in mind when designing his KMF line: “I want to try to create a line that helps women or men, it doesn’t matter, to create layered looks without having to spend as much time as I did. because I like this.

‘I personally like bullion coins because [they] carry a little more weight and last longer, but we wanted to have something for everyone.
