Fashion icons Kim Kardashian and the fiancée of one of the richest people in the world, Lauren Sanchez, engaged in a bidding war for a Balenciaga dress during an auction at Couture Week in New York.
The event was attended by the Skims billionaire (Kim’s net worth is $1.6 billion) and the fiancée of Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos (net worth $165.3 billion). Subsequently, an exclusive dinner hosted by the Kering Foundation took place, during which the Balenciaga dress was auctioned. «I’m a big fan of auctions, and my strategy was to come in at the last minute,» said Kim, known for her fashion collecting. Instead of rivalry, the event was marked by a spirit of camaraderie. «Let’s share!» suggested Kim, adding, «You’ll wear it once, and I’ll wear it once; it will be so cute!»
According to Vogue, both Lauren and Kim emerged as winners that evening. «Kering agreed to make two dresses, and both women paid $200,000 each. They will go to Paris together for fittings,» the publication reports. In an interview, the 53-year-old Sanchez shared details about the incident and her growing friendship with Kim over the past year. Kardashian also elaborated on their relationship, stating, «Lauren and I are constantly texting each other privately, supporting each other.»
Recently, Kardashian attended an engagement party for Sanchez and Bezos. Sanchez and Jeff Bezos also attended the reality TV star’s birthday party last month.
