(Newser) – It was a very designer Christmas for the Kardashian-West clan. Baby North West was gifted designer fashions from the likes of Stella McCartney and Hermes Paris (among others), reports People. Kim's designer gift, from fiance Kanye, wasn't quite so cute and bunny rabbit-covered. People reports that he gave her a Hermes Birkin handbag that artist George Condo custom-painted ... with nude ladies, along with what appears to be a naked man with a demon's face. Kardashian seemed pleased, at least on Instagram, where she posted an image along with the hashtags "#HandPaintedGeorgeCondo #HermesBirkin #OneofOne #ChristmasPresentFromYeezy."

Famed art critic Jerry Saltz felt somewhat differently, telling TODAY via email, "I love Birkin bags; the painting on this one is grotesque. George Condo has made good work. For the last few years he's been making knock-offs of his own work, getting weaker and weaker. ... No one should pay more than ten dollars for this monstrosity and travesty of a great bag." See plenty of shots of the bag here.
