Kim Kardashian Sparks Controversy by Flaunting $25k Janet Jackson ‘If’ Outfit Amid Backlash.

Kim Kardashian posted images on Instagram after last week’s Janet Jackson concert in Palm Desert, wearing a costume from the artist’s 1993 If music video.

The 43-year-old entrepreneur engaged her 362 million followers by posting various outtakes from the night and each Janet lyrics with ‘that’s the way love goes.’

Kim was accompanied by her younger sister Khloe Kardashian, 39, and mother Kris Jenner, 68, in some of the photos.

Kim Kardashian came to Instagram on Monday to share photographs from last week’s Janet Jackson concert, where she wore the music artist’s dress from her 1993 If music video (seen with sister Khloe Kardashian).

The SKIMS founder bared her toned belly in a sultry black ensemble that included a shrunken cropped sweater and matching suede, fringed slacks.

It comes after online critics ridiculed the mother-of-four for her expensive purchase, which cost her $25,000 at a 2021 auction.

The 43-year-old millionaire engaged her 362 million followers by posting various outtakes from the night and captioning Janet’s lyrics: ‘That’s the way love goes.’

Kim struck her go-to posture of a peace sign and kissy face.

After confirming she was attending Jackson’s concert with the archive outfit, social media commenters criticized X’s choice.

“Buying historical pieces just for the kick of it, UGH!” Someone protested, while another claimed the bombshell was acting ‘cringe.’

Another person said, ‘Why the hell does she have so many of Jackson’s clothes? Why them??

A furious commenter further inquired if the businesswoman will damage the clothing in the same manner that she ‘ruined Marilyn Monroe’s outfit’ at the 2022 Met Gala.

Despite heated reactions from Janet Jackson fans, the living diva gave Kim her okay when she purchased the one-of-a-kind ensemble.

In May 2021, Kim posted a photo of Janet in the If video and said, ‘For @janetjackson’s bday because I’m such a fan I can’t believe I got this costume on @jules_auctions.’

The vocalist shared it and added, “Thank you so much, @kimkardashian.” I hope you enjoy ‘IF’ as much as I did,’ along with three kiss emoji.

Jules Auctions also announced Kim’s acquisition on X, which was then known as Twitter.

The tweet had a photo of the 𝓈ℯ𝓍y getup on a mannequin.

There was an accompanying note that read: ‘SOLD for $25,000!

‘A custom-made top with a pair of black pants, both worn by Janet Jackson in her 1993 award-winning “If” music video.

‘Sold in our “Iconic Treasures from the Legendary Career and Life of Janet Jackson” auction at JuliensLive.com! w/ @JanetJackson.’

The low-rise trousers feature fringe going down the sides of the legs.

And the sleek, cropped vest boasts buttons going up the front, along with thin, white shells sewn onto either side.

Kim found the perfect complementary choker with coordinating shells to wear to the show.

Kim is renowned for her jaw-dropping looks and her passion of referencing classic fashion moments.

When she arrived at the Met Gala in 2022 wearing the custom-made champagne-colored gown that Marilyn Monroe famously wore in 1962—when she serenaded then-President John F. Kennedy—she startled fans and raised eyebrows.

In the past, Kardashian has also looked to celebrities like Sophia Loren, Aaliyah, and Cher for style inspiration.
