Kim Kardashian finally landed her Vogue cover, but that doesn’t mean she’s a fashion original. When it came time for a big dinner with the Devil in Prada herself, Anna Wintour, RadarOnline.com has learned that the reality star looked to two-time cover girl Beyonce Knowles for fashion inspiration.
Kardashian and fiancé Kanye West pulled up to New York’s Waverly Inn on Tuesday night in a pimped-out Mercedes van identical to the $1M custom vehicle that Jay Z gifted Knowles after she gave birth to their daughter, Blue Ivy. Kardashian had previously been spotted in a low-key SUV prior to the big night out.
But Kardashian’s style stealing didn’t end with Queen B’s ride. Her olive green lace Rachel Roy dress was strikingly similar to the high-necked white lace Michael Costello gown Beyonce wore at the Grammys earlier this year. And Kardashian’s gold sandals were by Tom Ford, a designer so close to Beyonce’s heart that her hubby Jay Z wrote a song about him!
If Kardashian is hoping to stay in Wintour’s good graces even through the backlash to her Vogue cover, she scarcely could pick a better role model than the former Destiny’s Child singer: Knowles has appeared on American Vogue twice — in April 2009 and March 2013 — and on British Vogue once.
Do you think imitation is the sincerest form of flattery or should Kardashian get her own style? Let us know in the comments!
