Inspiration or Imitation? Kim Kardashian Accused of Copying Beyonce’s 2012 MET Gown



Kim-Kardashian-Beyonce-KnowlesSocial media is going in on Kim Kardashian for wearing, what they are calling an imitation of Beyoncé’s 2012 MET Gala gown.

The 34-year-old reality TV star stepped out on the red carpet in a gorgeous white sheer Roberto Cavalli gown with fringe detail at the bottom.

While a lot of people are saying the outfit was inspired by Beyoncé’s black and purple sheer Givenchy gown with similar fringe elements to the 2012 MET Gala, Kim Kardashian maintains that her look was inspired by Cher’s look for the first ever MET gala and not Beyonce.

    I don’t see any imitation! And even if there is a similarity nko? People will always have something to say. Why was Bey not accused of imitating Riri..mschew! Now the media is hailing Beyonce for her so called “daring” outfit.. What’s with all the nudity sef. I am happy that Riri disappointed a lot of us. Kim’s look was good enough, but Beyonce? naahhhhh!!!!!

    I really don’t think fashion is original, its evolves! So I don’t see how anyone can copy anyone. If the outfit works then it works regardless of the century or who wore it first, second or last! Kim looked stunning to me this year.

    I am sorry o …. when i saw kims pic on instagram, I thought she looked nice but I have just seen a more clear picture now and its just not it.. Kim is just too short and wide for this kind of outfit….plus her (fake) big boobs and big bum on display. her boob area is just not right going in different directions. her hair and makeup on point. I prefer her dress last year to this, she looked better.

    On the comparison. Beyonce looked better- her height and slimmer stature gave her a better fit.

    People need to give Kim K a break. She cant even sneeze without people hating on her. The dress is lovely and though both dresses look alike, I don’t believe she tried to imitate Beyonce. Even if she did… SO WHAT?!!!!!

      There is nothing wrong with copying. But the question is, did she copy? The answer is YES! She Copied! Her ouitfit looks more like Beyonce’s than Cher.

    Na wao…
    An obvious answer.
    Kim Copied Beyonce na…what are we saying? Her inspiration is Cher? Which Cher? D one i’m seeing?
    Jare. There is nutin wrong with your fellow celebrity inspiring your outfit but claiming another when it’s obvios is funny.

    Even if she copied, she beats beyonce both this year’s met gala and beyonce’s version of the gown, hands down. She’s graciously and effortless beautiful in her gown.

    I honestly do not get the Beyoncé hype. Unfortunately, she can do no wrong in the eyes of her fans. Lately, it has been competition with Mrs. West for the title of Naked Champion. To think Jay Z left the house with his wife dressed like that. Veeeeery loooooong hiss.
