Kim Kardashian Is Waging War Against Fashion Nova For Ripping Off Designs

February 20, 2019 / Posted by:

I guess since the hype has died down after Kim Kardashian wore a dress from the Medieval Harlot Nuns collection this past weekend, her attention meter was almost at zero, so she needed something else to whine about. Kim took to Twitter to complain about THOT uniform emporium Fashion Nova and their incessant need to reproduce knockoffs of high end fashion houses. That’s ironic coming from Kim, who’s been the leading Paris Hilton knockoff since 2006.

Complex reports that Kim could no longer stay silent about her displeasure with sites like Fashion Nova, whom she never officially references but it’s clear she’s firing shots at them since they wasted no time posting their version of Kim’s elegant Thierry Mugler titty dress to their Instagram page.

Yeah, that wasn’t subtle at all. For her part, Kim’s main gripe is how these companies take fashion designers years of hard work and reproduce shoddy, quick grab-and-go prom dresses for the masses.

Kanye West must have been right by her side adding fuel to her words by saying “Yeah, they be ripping my shit off too babe!” because she threw a quick shout out to him in the following tweet.

Kim didn’t stop there with her Twitter thesis, which went on to include her referencing the vintage Mugler dress she wore at the Hollywood Beauty Awards this past weekend.

Kim concluded her lecture by informing everyone that the reason these companies do this is because, besides getting them to sign up for their mailing list, they want consumers to believe that there’s a working relationship between their site and her, which is one big old lie.

TMZ reports that Fashion Nova responded to Kim’s tweets with an official statement of “Whatever bitch

“Fashion Nova is an ultra-fast fashion brand that is capable of executing design within hours and believes in fairness in pricing. We strive to offer our customers affordable leading trends. We respect the fashion community and work with a variety of vendors, designers, influencers and celebrities to keep our style offering fresh and relevant.”

The statement continues, “Kim Kardashian-West is one of the top fashion icons in the world that our customers draw inspiration from. However, we have not worked with Kim Kardashian-West directly on any of her projects but have been driven by her influential style.”

BUT, in a surprising plot twist, new information suggests that Kim may be trolling everyone with these tweets because the inspiration for this dress somehow made its way to Fashion Nova before Kim even wore it on Sunday.

Hours before Fashion Nova shared the Mugler replica on its webiste (sic), house model Yodit Yemane posted the photo options from the shoot on her Instagram story. The IG account Diet Prada points out the Fashion Nova image files were labeled “Kim Dress” and were dated Feb. 14, 2019, four days before Kardashian wore the dress in public.

“Did Fashion Nova whip up the dress overnight in their Los Angeles atelier after seeing Kim in it,” Diet Prada wrote on Instagram, “or is she peddling her vintage finds to mass retailers ahead of debuting them for a calculated, timely release??”

UPDATE: See “MUGLER” story highlight for a screenshot of the date of the Capture One session (it’s labeled 02-14-19). Fashion Nova Mugler knockoff shot 4 days before Kim wore it on 02/18/19. Kim, you’ll 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 it’s 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

Oh, Kim. Wouldn’t it have been better to just admit you leaked this shit for a check rather than try to play the innocent “I can’t believe they did this to me!” game of victim blaming? This is the same kind of immaturity you’ve been hitting us with for over ten years and I’m sure when she’s at home throwing temper tantrums or pulling stunts like this her daughter North probably looks at her, sighs and says “Grow up Mommy.”
