Kim Kardashian’s eldest daughter, North West, channeled Michael Jackson this Halloween.
She wore a leather jacket with a white t-shirt and heavy makeup on her face, recreating the features of the late singer.

In case you didn’t know, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star purchased this authentic hat at an auction held in 2019. She reportedly purchased the Christmas present for one of her children.
Plus, the mother-of-four bought the velvet jacket Jackson wore to Elizabeth Taylor’s 65th birthday party in 1997. He also wore the same outfit to the “Ghost” movie screening.
Still, reports say Kardashian spent around $65,625 on the item.

Also, someone said, “Why does she keep destroying historical artifacts?”
Another user yelled, “This doesn’t suit me at all, Michael’s kids or museums should have a treasure like this, they don’t deserve this, she just plays with it like a toy, this hat means for a lot of fans, it’s very sad.
It’s not for me at all, Michael’s kids or museums should have a treasure like this, they don’t deserve it, she just plays like a toy, that hat means so much to a lot of fans that it is really sad

Another said: “Many people don’t seem to realize the cultural significance of these objects, but they should be preserved and displayed in museums as part of popular culture. I can’t walk into a museum and ask to try on an authentic 20s flowy dress, why can Kim do that?
