Kanye West knows just how to make his new bride happy -- get her a nude portrait of herself, of course. The 36-year-old rapper, who married Kim Kardashian last week, gave her a portrait of herself, titled “Perfect B-tch,” as a wedding gift. West has a song with the same name, which is aptly about the reality star. He released it in 2012.

The portrait features Kardashian wearing only a black G-string and red-bottom heels. It was designed by street artist Bambi.

Kanye’s  manager Leonard Villa said the brief for the piece was "something regal but typically Kim." He added: "This has been done on metal and just completed in time for the couple's return. It was a recent commission and Bambi has turned it around in three weeks. The request came through an agent and the fee is in five figures." According to the Mirror, Kanye wants the picture to hang in their bedroom.

This is not the first questionable gift Kanye has gotten his love. Last Christmas, Kanye gave Kim a $40,000 Hermes Birkin bag. He had George Condo, a contemporary American artist who has works displayed in the permanent collections of the Whitney and Guggenheim museum, create art work on the bag. The art work features a trio of voluptuous nudes and one angry green monster. While unique, when Kim posted a photo of the gift on Instagram, most comments were quite negative.

Meanwhile, the star couple said “I do” in front of 600 guests in Italy at the Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century-era fortress, last Saturday. E!, which produces Kardashian's reality television show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” shared exclusive shots of her dress, a haute couture Givenchy bridal gown. In one picture, Kardashian and West are kissing, likely right after they each said “I do” in front of friends and family. The setting is in front of a large wall of white roses, which is similar to the gift West got Kardashian for Mother’s Day.

While fans initially hoped the wedding would air on TV for Kardashian's reality show, the 33-year-old confirmed that the special day would only be revealed to the public in pictures.

In October, the couple got engaged, after dating for a little more than a year. Kardashian was more than happy to say “yes,” and she later told E! News, “Last night was truly magical!!! I am the luckiest girl in the world! I get to marry my best friend!”
