Tommy Hilfiger Gave Nicki Minaj a Crazy-Pricey Rolex for Being His Met Gala Date

What does a ridiculously wealthy fashion designer who has everything give to a ridiculously wealthy pop star who has everything? A $37,000 Rolex watch, obviously, which is exactly what Tommy Hilfiger did at last night’s Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute gala. Before Nicki Minaj even served her guest duties, the famed design star handed her a box enclosed with the coveted Rolex Oyster 41 watch in Everose gold, which she posted on Twitter. The former BlackBook cover star‘s Tweet was accompanied by "Oh gee, thx Tommy," which isn’t exactly how I’d reply if someone gifted me someone’s salary to wear on my wrist. (It would be more like: "OMG, seriously? For me?! Like, this isn’t a joke? I don’t have to give it back, ever? I can’t breath…I can’t breath. Really? Oh, Mr. Hilfiger, thank you! Thank you a thousand times over!")

But this kind of stuff happens to stars all the time, so I get the nonchalance. Hey, it was worth a Tweet, at least. Our friends at The Viviant also note that Zooey Deschanel, Lily Aldridge and her husband Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon were also at Hilfiger’s Met Gala table that night. Wonder if they received the same love? (I really can’t picture Deschanel sporting a Rolex, for some reason.)
