One other Kardashian costume, one other copy.
Kim Kardashian West continued her streak of posting footage from earlier fittings by way of Instagram on Friday. This time, she’s rocking an attractive cut-out gold costume.
Within the caption, the social media star explains the costume was customized by her husband, Kanye West, for her to put on throughout a Miami journey final summer season. And since she didn’t finish up carrying the piece — as she famously rocked a number of neon outfits in a row — she jokingly makes a plea to quick style manufacturers, “Are you able to please wait till I put on this in actual life earlier than you knock it off? 😂” Such retailers have launched almost-identical copies of designer duds the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have worn out earlier than.
Lower than three hours after the sweetness mogul’s request, U.Ok.-based reasonably priced model Missguided posted an actual copy of the gilded frock modelled on a Kardashian-lookalike on Instagram with the caption, “The satan works exhausting however Missguided works tougher 👀 @kimkardashian you’ve solely acquired a number of days earlier than this drops on-line.”
The put up was deleted a number of hours later, however Food plan Prada, an Instagram account dedicated to calling out style knock-offs, screen-shotted the put up and shared what they considered the model’s suspiciously speedy manufacturing.

Hey Kim, we’re onto your little recreation. Simply while you thought nothing would high the fake-out “confession” of Kendall’s Proactiv advert, the Kardashians do it once more. @kimkardashian posted an image of herself in an outdated costume Kanye made for her, presumably beneath his Yeezy label, with a pithy caption pleading for quick style manufacturers to let her put on the costume earlier than knocking it off. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Three hours after her put up, it popped up on quick-turn retailer @missguided , who has complete web site sections devoted to kopying the Kardashian model. Final yr, Style Nova famously dropped their very own variations of Kylie’s customized birthday seems mere hours after she posted them. The shortage of transparency round celeb endorsements is a giant downside dealing with social media. We predict we odor a rat. Dieters, is that this a thinly veiled collab, or does Missguided have a secret atelier of magical elves making stretchy clothes around the clock and taking pictures them on Kim Ok doppelgängers? Lol. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kimkardashian #missguided #actually #fastfashion #collab #transparency #designer #yeezy #ye #kanye #kimye #collaboration #magicalelves #speedtomarket #retail #luxurybrand #kardashian #kuwtk #fashionnova #ootd #wiwt #dietprada
Momager Kris Jenner and sister Kylie Jenner have partnered with a model that has overtly duplicated their seems, so it’s solely pure to surprise if Kim is secretly working with Missguided. Coincidence (with a scary fast turnaround) or deliberate? You resolve.
