Kim Kardashian has acquired another piece of pop culture history. The star was recently the highest bidder on Janet Jackson's iconic "If" outfit. After three bids, Kim paid $25,000 (£17,612) for the suede, bone-adorned vest and matching lace-front pants that appeared in the 1993 music video about voyeurism and technology. "I'm such a fan," Kim wrote on Instagram Stories. "I can't believe I won this outfit."
The outfit was available through Julien's Auctions three-day sale in celebration of Janet's 55th birthday on May 16. Over a thousand outfits, tour costumes, and personal items were up for auction, including Janet's Rhythm Nation tour jacket, the unique key earring she wore on a number of occasions, and a cardigan she wore in Poetic Justice. The auction's most expensive item ended up being the edgy outfit she wore in the "Scream" music video, which ended sold for $125,000.
