Kim Kardashian has a problem with sites like Fashion Nova, a company perhaps best known for once hosting a party in which Bhad Bhabie allegedly tossed a cup of water at Iggy Azalea.

In a series of tweets Tuesday, Kardashian called out Fashion Nova for its launch of a pre-sale for a dress she says is a ripoff of the vintage Mugler dress she wore at the Hollywood Beauty Awards on Sunday. Without naming Fashion Nova or similar companies, Kardashian also pointed to their habit of profiting off her husband Kanye West with similar copy tactics.

Fashion Nova responded to TMZ with the following statement:

"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.

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."

As TMZ noted in their equally compelling article about some tweets, this is likely the Fashion Nova dress Kardashian is referencing:

Despite Fashion Nova's claims that they can complete designs within hours, many people theorized Kardashian had some kind of working relationship with the very brands she publicly condemns. Some are convinced the reality TV star "leaks" her looks to these companies so they can create a replica in a timely manner—a theory Kardashian firmly denied Tuesday.

But here's the twist: Hours before Fashion Nova shared the Mugler replica on its webiste, 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 stories 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

Earlier in the day, Kardashian sent out a tribute tweet to fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, who died Tuesday at age 85. Kardashian, who worked with Lagerfeld on her first fashion shoot years ago, called the Chanel creative director a "true legend" whose contributions to the fashion world will be missed.
