Kylie Jenner wore a leopard-print catsuit to promote her new Kylie Cosmetics beauty launch.
Now, people are accusing her of copying Rihanna.
The Kardashians get a ton of heat for a lot of things. One of the biggest things they've been criticized for is their style and how they seem to copy other people with great style—Kim Kardashian was recently accused of copying Naomi Campbell and Khloé Kardashian was accused of copying Rihanna's iconic CFDA naked crystal gown twice. And this time, Kylie Jenner is being criticized for copying the "Kiss It Better" singer/designer/actress/person who I need to release a new album, like, yesterday.
To promote her new Kylie Cosmetics summer collection, Kylie snapped a pic in a $695 leopard-print catsuit by LaQuan Smith. Just a regular Wednesday in Calabasas, I guess!
It was hands-down one of the best mirror selfies ever, but when people saw her post, a few noticed that Rihanna also wore the same outfit before she did. And when Page Six tweeted comparing the two, many accused Kylie of stealing her style and brought up instances when they both wore similar outfits in the past.
BTW, here's Rihanna in the catsuit back in early June:

And the comments go to the tune of, "So basically she wants to emulate Ri-Ri so badly it's beginning to get creepy," "Rihanna miss trendsetter, why do people compete when they can’t compare?," and "Rihanna wears the outfit, The outfit just seems to wear everyone else."

Okay, in Kylie's defense, a lot of these outfits that fans had pointed to as examples were also major trends at the time, so it could just be that they're both very fashionable people who gravitate toward the same looks and shop at the same places or from the same designers. Oh, and Kim also wore a very similar look in March, but hers was an Alaïa.
Ultimately, here's nothing wrong with taking a little inspiration from someone you idolize (if that's even the case here)! Everyone does it! But when you do it, like, a lot...it's a little sus, so that's probably why people are coming for Kylie right now.
