Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Gifted North a $65,000 Jacket for Christmas
If you ask the average six-year-old girl what she got for Christmas this year, likely the answer would be a Barbie — maybe a dollhouse, or a DIY slime kit. Ask North West the same question, and you'll receive a very different response.
On Christmas, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West gifted their eldest daughter Michael Jackson's iconic black velvet and diamond jacket, which he wore to Elizabeth Taylor's 65th birthday party and the screening of Ghost at Cannes in the '90s.
"For Christmas, Kanye and I gave North this jacket and this was Michael Jackon's jacket that he wore with Elizabeth Taylor. And North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this," Kim said in a video posted to Instagram Stories.
Kim revealed that they won the garment at an auction, and according to E!, the winning bid was for $65,625 at Julien's Auctions' Icons and Idols in New York this October.
While that's an exuberant amount of cash to shell out on a single Christmas present, the KKW Beauty founder explained that the jacket will fit the pint-sized fashionista for many years to come. "So we won this on an auction for Northie for Christmas and we had it tacked up so she can wear it," Kim said. "And the sleeves are half tacked up so when she gets older we can untack this sleeve and it can grow with her and she can have this for her whole life. And she is so grateful and so excited."
