PHOTOS Kim Kardashian’s rubbing her ugly Christmas present from Kanye in our faces

Kim Kardashian Hermes Birkin Bag

You know the saying that money can’t buy you good taste? Kanye West’s Christmas present to Kim Kardashian and her subsequent use of that gift is proof.

Kim initially shared a photo of the Hermes Birkin bag with a unique George Condo hand-painting on Instagram, captioning it, “#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy”

She proceeded to parade the bag — which is worth a few tens of thousands of dollars — through the streets.

Personally speaking, my criticism of the Hermes bag isn’t a knock at George Condo’s work. The renowned artist is great at the style he refers to as “Artificial Realism.” His collaborations with Kanye West have also been practical — particularly when George did the album art for Kanye’s My Beautiful, Dark, Twisted Fantasy.


Even in the case of Kanye’s cover art, I wouldn’t call it “beautiful.” If anything, it’s interesting and provocative. But, since when does “provocative” have a place on the side of a new mother’s purse?

What do you think of Kanye’s gift selection?
