11 Times Kim Kardashian Was A Little Too Inspired By Naomi Campbell’s Style
It wasn’t long ago that Kim Kardashian wrote a whole emotional Twitter note decrying the everyday women’s online fashion brands who copied her expensive designer looks, sometimes within 24 hours, to make affordable versions of them for fans. According to the 38-year-old, “It’s devastating to see these fashion companies rip off designs that have taken the blood, sweat and tears of true designers who have put their all into their own original ideas.”
However, we can’t help but wonder if Naomi Campbell feels just as devastated considering the designs she’s worn, sometimes on the runway and sometimes for on-camera appearances and red carpet events, have been ripped off, per se, by Kim. One might say it’s a coincidence, but considering a few of Kim’s recent looks (as in within the last week and change) have been near if not spot-on copies of what Naomi wore in the past, we’re not so sure anymore. And without paying homage, it does feel like she’s copying our queen’s style.
Check out 11 times Kim has been a carbon copy of the 48-year-old supermodel in similar or the exact same looks:
This look is a popular vintage one from Versace, also worn by folks like Beyoncé. Kim wore hers in 2018, while Naomi wore hers in 2012.
Another Versace look, Kim wore hers in 2018, while Campbell wore hers in 2015 and on the runway in 1998.
This Azzedine Alaia jumpsuit was worn by Kim recently, while Naomi Campbell introduced the look on the runway in 1991.
Same sparkly Versace party dress. Kim wore hers to the Versace fashion show in December, while Naomi wore hers in 1997.
Kim wore this Azzedine Alaia look less than a week ago, while Campbell wore a version of it with similar boots and jacket (and shades, child) in 1991.
This Chanel swimsuit is cute, right? Kim wore a red version of this look in 2018 while Naomi introduced the baby blue version back in 1993.
Naomi introduced this luxurious slip-inspired Versace gown in 1996. Meanwhile, Kim wore the same exact dress to Chance the Rapper’s wedding over the weekend, and you can see it here.
Kim wore this stunning gold Versace gown, which has a similar design with its cross usage to Naomi’s Versace gown from 1997.
Versace still creates dresses with this unique neckline, and Kim’s sister Kourtney wore a version of Naomi’s gown at the amfAR Gala earlier this year, while Naomi sported hers, possibly made from a different material, in 1995.
Not the exact same gown (Kim’s is completely strapless), but these Versace gowns bear a resemblance that folks online couldn’t help but point out. Kim wore hers in 2017, while Naomi wore hers in 1995.
Now this one is a coincidence (I think…)! This very detailed white Balmain gown was worn by Kim in June 2014, not long before Naomi was pictured wearing the same dress while modeling for the 2014 September issue of Harper’s Bazaar Mexico, shot well in advance of September.
