Kim Kardashian West beat out Santa Claus this year for best Christmas gift-giver in her family. That’s because she looked through two major musical icon’s closets to get her daughter North West and brother Rob Kardashian their symbolic accessories: Michael Jackson and Elvis Presley.
For their firstborn, she and husband Kanye West bought her Jackson’s jewel-embellished black velvet jacket that he famously wore on a night out with Elizabeth Taylor on February 16, 1997 for the taping of “Happy Birthday Elizabeth – A Celebration of Life,” according to Billboard‘s photo gallery of the two’s lasting friendship. According to Kardashian’s Instagram story, “North is a really big Michael Jackson fan, and we knew she would love this.” The entertainment power couple scored the item from Julien’s Auctions’ Icons: Rock ‘N’ Roll even in New York last October, and the hefty price tag ended up being $65,625, as reported by E! News.
But North had more in store from Jackson’s memorable closet: Kimye also purchased his white fedora hat from his 1988 “Smooth Criminal” music video and subsequent live performances. The KKW makeup mogul wrote on her story that the signature cap “still has his make up on it,” as well as his name written on the black lining of it. E! News reported the fedora sold for $56,250. That totals to $121,875 for both of Jackson’s memorabilia.
But her six-year-old daughter was not the only lucky recipient of an icon’s wardrobe pieces. Rob Kardashian “is the biggest Elvis Presley fan,” so what’s a big sister and auction obsessive to do but to buy him two of Presley’s rings for Christmas?
One features a red jewel in the center of its wide band, while the second ring has four square-cut diamonds. DiazHub uploaded screenshots of the two purchased jewelry items from Julien’s Auctions’ website, which confirm that the first ring sold for $7,000 and the latter sold for $8,000.
