Kim Kardashian’s style has certainly changed over the years. When the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star first burst on to the scene in 2007 –her style was very mid-2000s with belts, sunglasses, and platform heels. However, in the years that followed –the KKW Beauty mogul stepped into her own distinct style –even though she’s thwarted at times by her husband, Kanye West’s eclectic taste.
These days, it appears that the mom of three has taken back the reigns of her personal style, wearing more colors as well as vintage and couture pieces. But, is Kardashian stealing her looks directly from supermodel Naomi Campbell?
Is Kim Kardashian copying everything Naomi Campbell wears?
Recently, Kim Kardashian has been on a crusade against trendy fashion brands like Fashion Nova for churning out quick knock offs of her looks. Now–North, Saint and Chicago’s mom is being called
In mid-March 2019, Kardashian and her rapper hubby attended Chance the Rapper’s wedding. When the arrived (late!) Kardashian was photographed wearing a stunning purple, green, and aqua vintage Versace dress. It’s the exact same dress Naomi Campbell slayed on the runway in back in 1996.
This didn’t immediately raise any alarms until Twitter users began pointing out that this isn’t the first or even third time, Kim Kardashian has worn the exact same thing as Naomi Campbell. One Twitter user tweeted boldly, “she takes credit as an originator when in fact she isn’t. She lives her life as a copy of black women’s essence and style.” Another user said, “Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is a pattern.”
Is Kim Kardashian wrong for stealing Naomi Campbell’s style?
Naomi Campbell is a model, so that means her job is to literally inspire others to buy the clothes that she wears. However, the way in which Kardashian chooses to style the clothes that she has seen Campbell wear in the past certainly raises alarms.
Instead of putting her own personal touches on her outfits, Kardashian has chosen to style everything from her hair to her makeup in the same way as Campbell’s. One Twitter user even suggested that the reality starlet chooses to use a kinker texture of extension instead of a silkier one that would be closer to her actual hair texture to look more like the supermodel. They said, “When she is literally wearing the same thing right down to the kinky hair…boo, that’s a carbon copy lmao.”
Are Kim Kardashian and Naomi Campbell friends?
The KUWTK star and Naomi Campbell are actually very good friends, so we doubt the legendary model would take offense even if Kardashian is directly biting off of her past looks. If Campbell truly had an issue with Kardashian, she’s not one to bite her tongue so we’re sure she’d have no issue bringing it up to Kim.
