Kim Kardashian is sick of the lies and cheats, specifically with fashion companies who rip off the clothes she wears. Kardashian is one of the most famous fashion icons in the world and has worn some of the most beautiful looks, so of course it would upset her that whenever she wears something, someone steals it right away. And it's not all about her, it's about the designers as well.
The reality star has called out sites like Fashion Nova, after they stole her look days after she wore it. Kim has called out the company in a series of tweets that came across as heartfelt and determined. In the tweets, Kim said Fashion Nova's launch of a pre-sale for a dress is a direct copy of the vintage Mugler dress she wore to the Hollywood Beauty Awards this past weekend.
This obviously instantly angered Kim, and she set to work on Twitter. Without naming names but speaking her mind nonetheless, Kim called out copycat fashion companies that have ripped off her husband Kanye West in the past as well.
"I can no longer sit silent," she wrote, and went on a rant.
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.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
I’ve watched these companies profit off my husband’s work for years and now that it’s also affecting designers who have been so generous to give me access to their beautiful works, I can no longer sit silent.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
Only two days ago, I was privileged enough to wear a one-of-a-kind vintage Mugler dress and in less than 24 hours it was knocked off and thrown up on a site - but it's not for sale. You have to sign up for a waitlist because the dress hasn’t even been made to sell yet.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
This is a way to get people to sign up for their mailing list and make people believe there is some kind of relationship between me and this fashion site. There is not.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
My relationships with designers are very important to me. It's taken me over a decade to build them and I have a huge amount of respect for the amount of work that they put into bringing their ideas to life.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
I often plan for weeks, sometimes months, and even a year in advance, and I’m grateful for every fashion moment those designers and their dresses have helped me create.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
So, as always, don’t believe everything you read and see online. I don’t have any relationships with these sites. I’m not leaking my looks to anyone, and I don’t support what these companies are doing.— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 19, 2019
Here's the dress Kim is most likely talking about:
A representative from Fashion Nova has since responded, telling TMZ: "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."
