Last week, the internet at large made the very important observation that Kim Kardashian has been wearing a lot of the same exact outfits Naomi Campbell wore back in the ’90s, and people started calling her out for copying the supermodel’s style.
After Kim did it for the third time, someone on Twitter made a video of all the outfits together, writing, “Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is a pattern.”
Then, things got even weirder when Kylie Jenner wore a sunglasses/choker set that looked like a total copy of a different one Naomi wore on the runway back in the day. Basically, the internet was like “@The Kardashians, WYD?”
Kim just inserted herself into the whole thing with one quick Instagram caption. She posted a series of photos from Chance the Rapper’s wedding, where she wore one of the Naomi looks in question, and she wrote “Naomi Forever 💛💫,” seemingly trying to make up for the fact that the internet’s giving her so much crap.
Here’s the look on Naomi.
People in the comments seem, like, only half amused by the whole thing, with one writing, “Finally she gets the recognition she deserves,” talking about Naomi.
In total fairness, Naomi’s job as a supermodel is to inspire people to wear the clothes she’s modeling, so the fact that Kim was inspired could just mean Naomi killed it at her job. However, it’s also important to give credit where credit is due, which is what it looks like Kim was trying to do in this caption.
