Kanye West Gave Kim Kardashian a Birkin Bag - Most Outrageous Celebrity Gift?
Kanye West bought Kim Kardashian a Birkin bag with nude figures painted on it for Christmas - was that the most outrageous celebrity gift of the season?
The 32-year-old reality TV star - who has a six-month-old daughter, North, with the rapper - gushed about her one-of-a-kind Hermes Birkin bag on Instagram, which was hand-painted by contemporary visual artist George Condo.
Many celebrity observers mocked and lampooned the bag, laughing at it.
The lavish brown leather bag features four scantily clad figures painted on one side, with the central character - a striking female beauty - looking solemn while surrounded by the other three figures, who appear to have ghoulish faces.
Kim shared a picture of her Christmas gift on Instagram, writing: "#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin#OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy (sic)"
While Kim is overjoyed with her unique present, the star's fans were less than impressed with her new accessory.
One person wrote: "will she really take this out in public or convince him its art to stay indoors? ugly offensive art for a purse, wth Hermes, u failed (sic)"
Another Instagram user commented: "Sorry but that bag is ugly and should not be carried in public!!!! (sic)"
Kanye, 36, has a close friendship with artist George, who previously collaborated with him to create several portraits for his 2010 album 'My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy'. George even designed the controversial cover art, which features a naked Kanye being straddled by a female with no arms.
