Kim Kardashian broke the internet yet again when she stepped out wearing a vintage barely-there Mugler dress. While the bunch of us still trying to put a finger on our feelings about the dress, we hear that it already has a rip off! Umm, wait, what? The sartorial plagiarism reporter, Diet Prada pointed out that this dare-to-bare Mugler dress that Kim K wore to Hollywood Beauty Awards has a copy by Fashion Nova, just two days after the fashionista wore it...Coincidence much?
L-R: Kim Kardashian and Fashion Nova model
Ahead of Kim's appearance at the Awards night, Fashion Nova did a shoot featuring the same dress Kim wore at the red carpet. While we wonder if it's the same dress, a rip-off or a photoshopped version, we have proof that the dress which is now known as 'Winning Beauty Cut-Out Gown' was initially named as 'Kim's dress'. Check this out! [

UPDATE: See MUGLER story highlight for a screenshot of the date of the Capture One session (its labeled 02-14-19). Fashion Nova Mugler knockoff shot 4 days before Kim wore it on 02/18/19. Kim, youll never fess up to your sneaky lil collaborations, but we got all the receipts . At some point recently, a fast fashion photo shoot happened featuring a vintage Mugler dress that @kimkardashian just happened to wear on Sunday night to the Hollywood Beauty Awards...and yes, it appears to be a real dress, not photoshop. Ahead of Fashion Nova releasing the dress at 9pm EST tonight, house model Yodit Yemane may or may not have accidentally leaked a story 2.5 hours earlier of photo options from her shoot featuring the Mugler replica. The file names were even labeled Kim dress while its now being called Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown lol. This begs the question: Did Fashion Nova whip up the dress overnight in their Los Angeles atelier after seeing Kim in it or is she peddling her vintage finds to mass retailers ahead of debuting them for a calculated, timely release? : Getty #kimkardashian #mugler #thierrymugler #manfredthierrymugler #bodycon #cutout #barelythere #strappy #straps #black #vintage #dress #velvet #fashionnova #wiwt #ootd #kuwtk #hollywood #beauty #kkwbeauty #kardashian #ecommerce #shady #smh #photoshoot #model #fashionmodel #dietprada
The question stands: How did fashion Nova manage to create a rip-off overnight? Or is the fashionista providing these couture designs by big labels to mass retailers, accounting for a sneak move? Or is it just a plain coincidence?
