Kim Kardashian Calls Out Saint Laurent for Copying Kanye West
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were noticeably absent from this year’s Fashion Week events in New York and Paris, but they have been keeping an eye on what’s popping on the runways.
So much so, that Kimmy had to put a legendary fashion house on notice for allegedly copying her husband’s creativity.
On Wednesday (Feb. 28), Kim posted a series of Instagram Stories calling out Saint Laurent for allegedly copying Kanye’s overhead lighting arrangements for their runway show Paris Fashion Week.
She uploaded two screenshots of her husband’s 2016 Saint Pablo tour set and Saint Laurent's runway lights, which features similarly angled rows of orange-hued spotlights. "Cute YSL," she wrote.
We don't know if this is a direct bite, but YSL does have some explaining to do. As Complex pointed out, Kanye have crossed paths with YSL and it wasn't on good terms. During an onstage rant at New York's Madison Square Garden, West revealed to his audience that the song "I Am a God" (from his 2013 Yeezus album) was inspired by the fashion house's former creative director Hedi Slimane telling him he could only attend a YSL show if he didn't go to the other events.
"He told me you can come to my show, but you can't come to see Phoebe and you can't come to see Riccardo, that was odd," he said. "He tried to control me! He tried to tell me where I could go!"
There's an old saying that goes "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." But it appears in this case that KimYe are not having none of it.
