Paris Hilton’s New Birkin Bag Is Covered in 30,000 Swarovski Crystals
Paris Hilton finally has the perfect bag to match that massive engagement ring! The Yeezy season six model showed off her latest purse purchase over on Instagram stories, and her new Birkin is unlike ANY you’ve ever seen before.
For starters, it’s encrusted with no less than 30,000 hand-placed Swarovski crystals, which, as a representative for customization company Privé Porter told People, took a total of 60 hours to complete — above and beyond the 48 hours it took Hermès to make the actual bag.
Needless to say, such a piece doesn’t come cheap — in fact, it’s worth a whopping $65,000, according to the outlet.
For the perfume queen, however, who lost 20 Birkins (plus $2 million worth of jewelry!) in a Bling Ring robbery back in 2008, the splurge was a redemption of sorts.
“This definitely makes up for the 20 #Birkins the #BlingRing stole from me!” she captioned a second shot of the tote’s iconic orange box.
For those that were living under a rock back in 2008, the Bling Ring was a group of eight celeb-enthused teens who burglarized the homes of everyone from Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson to Orlando Bloom and Hilton.
Hilton, 36, made up for lost time with her arm candy, toting it to LAX airport alongside fiancé Chris Zylka. Just look at that gleam!
Shine on, Paris!
