Twitter is having a field day with Kim Kardashian on the heels of her recent auction score, and some fashion throwbacks were thrown into the conversation!
Kim Kardashian Wins Necklace Worn By Princess Diana At Auction
Earlier this week, TMZ reported that Kim had managed to secure a stunning necklace that Princess Diana rocked back in the day. The piece is an Attallah Cross pendant, and it was up for auction at a Sotheby’s auction on Wednesday.
Kim was apparently determined to get her hands on the jewelry piece, as her winning bid was placed at a whopping $197,453.
She Has A History Of Acquiring Celebrity Fashion Pieces
Before moving onto what social media had to say, we have to point out that Kim is quite the collector when it comes to iconic celebrity fashion pieces.
TMZ notes that she’s previously won items belonging to Elizabeth Taylor and Jackie Onassis Kennedy, and—of course—we have the matter of when Kim infamously borrowed Marilyn Monroe’s dress for the 2022 Met Gala.
Additionally, the mother-of-four is noted as having purchased a Michael Jackson jacket, along with his “Smooth Criminal” fedora, for North West.

Twitter Comes Through With The Memes
With such an expansive collection, people took it upon themselves to start an online trend centered on joking about what other pieces Kim may eventually acquire.
It was jokey that Kim had secured pieces worn in music videos like “No More (Baby I’ma Do Right)” and “Single Ladies.”

A extra-spicy halter top that JWOWW rocked back in the early days of Jersey Shore was brought up, too. Humorously, the reality star found the joke to be “amazing.”
