With a winning bid of $25,000, Kardashian became the proud owner of a custom-made top and pants worn by Jackson in her 1993 "If" video. And we know this because she posted about it on her Instagram story, right after wishing Ms. Jackson a Happy Birthday.

"For @janetjackson's bday bc I'm such a fan I can't believe I won this outfit on @juliens_auctions," Kardashian revealed along with a snap of the Jackson rocking the ensemble.

Love that for her, even though we’re slightly shocked we didn’t already know Kim was a part of the Rhythm Nation. Because for real, it feels like we know everything about her.

Jackson reciprocated Kardashian's excitement right back, replying to her IG story with one of her own, writing, “Thank u so much @kimkardashian! I hope 'IF' gives u as much pleasure as it did me.”
