UPDATE (12/4): You can now see Kim Kardashian's Warhol portrait, in all its glory, at InTouch Weekly. Click here!

Kanye West has commissioned Andy Warhol's cousin, Monica Warhol, for a painting of his fiance and babymomma Kim Kardashian. Because that is what very rich people do. That, and sign royalty deals with Adidas.

Monica, a silk-screen artist who lives in Arizona, has "never studied Andy" but she has created similar pop art pieces of several celebrities, including Flo Rida and Lenny Kravitz

"She's an icon," Monica told Page Six about Kardashian. "She's famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her. Kim is beautiful. She's so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie." Monica Warhol speaks the truth.

Kanye recently labeled his girlfriend one of the most beautiful women of all time, because he does hyperbole really well. He told Hot 97, "All barber shops, fashion designers, architects, corner stores, Wall Street, all over the world: Y’all acting like this ain’t the most beautiful woman of all time! I’m talkin’, like, arguably of human existence—the top 10 of human existence."
