Uh Oh! Serbian Pop Star Accuses Kim Kardashian of Stealing Her Style



Jelena-Karleusa-vs.-Kim-Kardashian-3-700x700When it comes to fashion there is only a thin line between imitation and inspiration and it looks like reality TV star Kim Kardashian is wavering on that line.

The 34-year-old style icon has been called out by a Serbian pop star called Jelena Karleusa.

Jelena first posted a picture collage of she and Kim Kardashian on her Instagram page and she captioned ‘Lets play a game-FIND ME!’.


She then posted side-by-side pictures of her style and Kim Kardashian’s style with the caption “Will the real slim shady place stand up! Ps (I am the one on the left) #Illtakeitasacompliment @kimkardashian #itnotjustthehair”

According to US Magazine, Jelena Karleusa, who has 369,000 followers on Instagram, has been in the music business for over 20 years, and with 10 studio albums is one of the top-selling artists in Eastern Europe. In 2013, W magazine dubbed her the “Gaga of Serbia.”

So what do you think – inspiration or imitation?

Check out more pictures of Jelena’s style!

    Wait a minute! Like hollup one sec. Say what???????????????????????
    Okay first of all, I don’t think Kim K would jack anyone’s style intentionally please. Its Kim!
    But then again I do agree, so many of the looks do look similar (rolls eyes). Like!
    That being said, this one is clearly looking for a break (finally) in her career! Carrying the matter on her head like she should be paid or sumn. Sweetheart you’ve won. Now we know you, and supposedly what you do. Let’s see if this gets you your big break.
    And for the records, the whole look from the both of them is ugh. Yes I know to each man his own but mehn this is too garish.

    damn kim copied hard here… lol… we all know kin has no style or mind of her own and she has to do sth to stay relevant. lol.. well i prefer the hair and style on the serbian girl. nothing wrong with copying but if you want to copy without adding your own twist, atleast just be honest and say where you got the inspiration from..

      Finally some one with brains……. thank you. Like seriously did anyone stop to think that she might be the one copying Kim? We need dates to know who wore what first. She looks like she had a surgery to look like kim.

    Im not a fan of any of them but please don’t discredit the pop star, she is popular in Europe and has been in the music business for over a decade……That is like someone trying to discredit Davido because he is not mainstream outside Africa…..Not everyone has to be popular by American standards

    YES Kim did jack her style…….it is too similar to be a coincidence from the hair, style, clothes,,,,just admit it BUT i don’t blame Kim. This is obviously Kanyes doing as he is her stylist.
    Kanye obviously knows this woman because he is a huge fan of Europe and the style there.. he must have been admiring her, so instead of cheating on Kim he decided to change Kims style to that of the woman.. sigh…….some of us have commented that Kim has not been herself lately style wise and this is proof ……..that pop star was obviously her stylist inspiration….I mean the Kim we all know would not have gone full blonde just like that

    Well, let’s ask Kanye, he would know.

    Kudos to this woman because if this horrible style was my idea and someone stole it I would NEVER own up to it. Infact, I’d be ashamed that I thought of it first.

    Can everyone wake up! Kim is not the copy cat. I’m suure yall know she uses a stylist. So stylist is copycat.

    This is so embarrassing. It’s not hard to check and compare their insta and fb profiles, focus on all the dates on Kim’s pics and then on pics of that other woman looking like Kim. It’s clear Kim’s being copied by her, not the other way around!
    Joyce Bonelli was Kim’s inspiration for this hairstyle. Check all before you judge.

    The lady is cuter than kim infact she looks original in the outfit. I do not believe she copied kim and cannot believe she was seeking for notice from any body because she is popular for her to be in the music industry for 20 years makes her a known person, she has more than three hundred thousand followers on het instagram alone. I do not see her as person that can copy kim to become famous. She got talent and i do not think that kim can be compared with her. From the way i see her she is confident in the outfit more than kim and classy too. I used to admire kim before but i never knew that there is another lady that is more attractive and has sense of fashion than her. Kim is good looking and cute but this lady is nomber 1.
    Thanks to bella naija for the nice information

    I follow Jelena on instagram and yes Kim, her stylists or Kanye, one of them is copying her style. She’s not a nobody, she’s the biggest female artist in Serbia. From the blond hair to the fur coats, killer boots, crop tops, nudes, plssssss Kim has nothing on Jelena. Find her on instagram and check her out. Kanye is making Kim look like what he wants, and she’s enjoying it cos she loves attention. She was so covered and beautiful with Kris Humpries. So guys before you call Jelena attention seeker, just spare some minutes and check her instagram. She has legs for days, she’s got grace too and better carriage. What you will call trash looks classy on her. Abeg no vex, I just love the babe style

    …..and this is supposed to be a “style”. orisirisi.

    Who cares who is copying who? They both appear self absorbed and there is NOTHING classy or elegant about their sense of style. If they want to talk about copying, one can say they are copying MADONNA who existed before they both knew there was such a thing as a spotlight, fame and infamy! There isn’t much that is original under the sun so they both need to shut up. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Heck, if anyone should complain maybe it should be the stylists who lay out the concept and outfits they both wear.

    March 20, 2015 at 2:08 pm

    I am a fan of Beyonce & Kim. All of you people that are saying that Jelena is looking for stardom are haters. This woman has been rocking these styles before them & we want to turn our heads and act like Jelena is doing something wrong. That’s what’s wrong with America. We want to act like we are the best @ everything or did everything first. Right here in our on Country Caucasian still Black styles all the down to sagging pants. You are the haters. Give her her just does and get over it. You would want your props to. YOU HATERS!!!!
