Kim’s Christmas Present From Kanye: A Hideously Hand-Painted Birkin

Kim Kardashian found another way to get attention. The materialistic reality star showed off the eccentric present fiance Kanye West bought her for Christmas.

She posted a picture of the one-of-a-kind Hermes bag that Kanye ordered to be painted especially for her.

The rapper had painter George Condo use the Hermes Birkin bag as his personal canvas. The result is an image of nude female bodies and monster-looking creatures posed on the front of the pricey tote. According to The Cut, the bag sells for $40,000, not including the artwork.

This is not the first piece West had commissioned. He collaborated with Condo on his album cover for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Condo’s work has sold for 1 million.

Kim didn’t waste any time using the bag. The same day she posted the Instagram picture, she was photographed with it and Kanye as they shopped.
