Hey @kimkardashian , so it’s def not cool to use someone else’s name and likeness when promoting knockoffs, as evidenced by your win against @missguided , but should it be ok to use your OWN name and likeness to promote them? Lol. Funny how those SS17 @emiliopucci shades you wore in August 2018 ended up in your eyewear collab with @carolinalemkeberlin that launched in April this year. Hypocrisy at its finest! ✨ • #kimkardashian #kardashian #pucci #emiliopucci #kuwtk #sunnies #shade #sunglasses #eyewear #neon #neongreen #neonyellow #kuwtk #kimkardashianwest #shapewear #carolinalemke #collab #wiwt #ootd #accessories #mfw #milanfashionweek #sunglassesfashion #sporty #missguided #collaboration #lol #dietprada

UPDATE: See “MUGLER” story highlight 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

Kim Kardashian is being accused of ripping off a pair of Emilio Pucci sunglasses that she wore last summer for her own collection — after suing a fast-fashion brand for using her likeness to peddle knockoff looks.

The 38-year-old reality star collaborated with Carolina Lemke eyewear to create her Versatile Collection, which launched in April. Three months later, she is being called out for allegedly copying the design of her $90 Chaotix frames.

Diet Prada, an Instagram account that serves as a fashion watchdog, shared photos of Kim wearing $370 Emilio Pucci sunglasses last summer alongside pictures of her modeling a suspiciously similar pair of shades in her sunglass campaign.

Both pairs of sunglasses have the same unique shape, bright yellow frames, and dark lenses, making them pretty much identical in appearance.

Kim - Damages - Attorney - Fees - Missguided

Kim was recently awarded $2.7 million in damages and $60,000 in attorney's fees after she sued Missguided USA for ripping off her looks, according to TMZ, and Diet Prada was quick to point out the hypocrisy.

'Hey @kimkardashian, so it’s def not cool to use someone else’s name and likeness when promoting knockoffs, as evidenced by your win against @missguided, but should it be ok to use your OWN name and likeness to promote them? Lol,' reads the caption on the post.

Photos from Kim's shopping excursion last summer show her wearing a neon green outfit and a pair of Emilio Pucci's shield sunglasses, which look just like the style featured in her collection.

The Diet Prada post attracted the attention of Emilio Pucci's daughter Laudomia Pucci, who took over the family business when her father passed away in 1992.
