Kim Kardashian is no stranger to an archival look, and she’ll probably ignite the envy of music aficionados with her latest ensemble.

To see Janet Jackson’s Together Again tour in California, the Kardashians star chose an outfit from the video for Jackson’s 1993 single “If”—the exact outfit, in fact, that the singer wears in the clip, which Kardashian purchased at auction in 2021.

The look consists of a black button-up crop top that looks like the love child of a corset and a vest. On both sides, the top is decorated with slightly zigzagging white streamers that create columns across the chest. To accessorize, Kardashian sported a bonelike neckpiece that mirrored the white material on the top.

Down low, the Skims founder sported Jackson’s black suede pants, which lace up in the front and feature flaring along the bottom hems, as well as fringe on the sides. To complete the ensemble, Kardashian sported a pair of super-pointy black boots and large hoop earrings.

The reality star teased the look on her Instagram Story ahead of the concert, posting clips in which she said: “Can you guys tell where I’m going tonight? I’ll bet you’ll never guess.” (As a clue, she added Jackson’s “If” as background audio.) Later, she shared snaps of herself with her fellow concertgoers, including mom Kris Jenner, sister Khloé Kardashian, and a few friends.

Kardashian bought the music video ensemble back in 2021, when she won it for $25,000 at Julien’s Auctions at an event honoring Jackson’s career. The reality star reposted a memory from that occasion, in which Jackson herself responded to the news of the purchase and said, “Thank you so much @kimkardashian! 💖 💖 I hope ‘IF’ gives u as much pleasure as it did me 😘 😘 😘.” It’s hard to think of a better use for the look.
