Kim gets '6ft. Kanye picture'

Kanye West splashed out on a giant self-portrait for Kim Kardashian’s birthday, as well as some diamond-encrusted shoes.

The reality TV star turned 33 towards the end of last month, with her boyfriend Kanye celebrating by asking her to marry him. He hired a baseball stadium, 50-piece orchestra and staged a firework display to make his proposal extra special, but also treated his new fiancée to some gifts.

Among those was a portrait of himself measuring 6ft. by 4ft., in which he is lounging on a bed and wearing a crown. He also had a smaller version made for Kim to carry in her handbag when she is out and about.

“Despite splashing out on an engagement ring for Kim’s birthday, Kanye still wanted to spoil her in his usual extravagant way. Kim loved all her gifts and laughed at the giant picture of him,” an insider told British newspaper The Sun.

“She said it depicts him so well as he loves himself, which she admires.”

The two stars are known for their love of fashion, with Kanye recently dubbing Kim the number one designer in the world. He apparently knew treating her to some new pieces would also go down well, so splashed out £312,000 on a pair of shoes by Stuart Weitzman. The stilettos are covered with 1,420 diamonds and should look great teamed with the one-of-a-kind Givenchy monogram coat he had made for the star.

“She really loved the shoes. Kanye reckons he has a rare talent for a man to be able to pick out women’s footwear,” the source added.

“When he saw the stilettos he knew Kim would adore them. He calls them the shoes ‘fit for my princess’. The couple are yet to move into their new LA mansion, so the painting is in storage for now.”
