The heart wants what it wants, and nobody understands this better than fashion icons Kim Kardashian and Lauren Sanchez, who have consistently shown their love for fashion. Demonstrating that all is fair in love and fashion, these beauties engaged in a bidding war over a six-figure Balenciaga gown during a couture auction at New York Fashion Week. The Skims billionaire (Kim is worth $1.6 billion), and the fiancée of the Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos ( worth $165.3 billion), attended the event, which was followed by an exclusive dinner hosted by the Kering Foundation, where the Balenciaga dress was auctioned. ‘I’m a big auction girl, and my strategy was to come in at the last minute,’ Kim revealed, known for collecting significant fashion pieces. Instead of rivalry, the event was marked by camaraderie. ‘We’ll share it!’ Kim proposed, adding, ‘You wear it once, I’ll wear it once; it’ll be so cute!’
According to Vogue, both Lauren and Kim emerged as winners that night. ‘Kering agreed to make two dresses, and both women paid $200,000. They will travel to Paris together for the fitting,’ reported Vogue. In an interview, Sánchez, 53, spoke about this incident and her growing friendship with Kim over the past year. Kardashian described the helicopter pilot as ‘such a girl’s girl’ and elaborated on their relationship. ‘Lauren and I are constantly sending DMs to each other, building each other up. Whenever there’s a look we like, she’ll respond with ‘WOW’ or ‘OMG, you look amazing’.’
Kardashian attended Sánchez and Bezos’ engagement party after the latter proposed earlier this year aboard Bezos’s $500 million megayacht, Koru. Sánchez and Jeff Bezos also celebrated at the reality star’s birthday party last month.
Sánchez is close to Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, with whom she had a great time at the Beyoncé concert in early September at SoFi Stadium. They share a bond with Salma Hayek, whose husband owns the Balenciaga brand. With such connections, there’s no point in fighting over a dress, right?”
