Kim Kardashian Shows Off Hermès Bag Painted By North West, Alibaba's Singles Day Sales Hit $5.9 Billion

And Sofia Coppola explains why she was tortured by her Birkin bag for years.

Kim Kardashian has finally revealed the Hermès purse North West painted for her birthday on Instagram. The bag is actually an Hermès Her bag, not a Birkin as previously reported — but either way we can probably all agree the hand prints and splatter art are actually an improvement from her other painted Hermès bag. {US Weekly}

Speaking of Birkin bags, Sofia Coppola was tortured by hers for years. Last night the stylish director put her Hermès purse up for auction and recounted to the crowd how she felt guilty for asking her father to buy it for her at a very young age and how it sat in her closet unused. Luckily good things don’t go to waste and the purse, which was reworked by Jeff Koons, sold for $175,000. {The Cut}

Alibaba is having a very happy Singles Day. The Chinese holiday has become the country’s biggest shopping event thanks to the e-commerce site offering shoppers hefty discounts and 27,000 different brands. Sales have already added up to $5.9 billion (that's triple the sales of Cyber Monday) and are predicted to reach up to $8.13 billion. {WWD}
