“North is a really big Michael Jackson fan and we knew she would love this,” Kim said. “We won this at an auction for Northie for Christmas.”


The jacket was sold for a winning bid of $65,625 in New York in October. Jackson wore it in 1997, once to his friend Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday celebration and also to the screening of his movie “Ghost” at the 50th Cannes Film Festival.

The jacket zips in the front and features a sparkling vine motif across the right shoulder, and white stones and pearls on the chest. It also has three suspending rhinestone tassels, two crown decorations on the collar, and a burgundy satin band on the right arm.
