There may be a conspiracy surrounding Kim Kardashian and fast fashion knockoffs

Earlier this month, Kim Kardashian threw shade at fast fashion brands that have been knocking off her designer outfits before she was seen in them. Although she sounded like she was joking on Twitter, the issue is serious as brands have posted duplicates of Kardashian-Jenner outfits just hours after they were seen wearing them.

It happened again recently when Fashion Nova copied Kim's vintage Thierry Mugler cutout dress. There's obviously a conspiracy happening here and Diet Prada's discovery is leading to one plausible theory.

Just a few hours ago, Fashion Nova posted a photo of the knockoff dress with the caption named the "Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown." Take note that this brand has had a track record of copying many Kardashian-Jenner looks with models who resemble them.

They later updated their post after finding out that Fashion Nova already had this dress in its lineup since Feb. 14, 2019-four days before Kim wore her Mugler dress. Not only that, a video showed a filename that read "Kim dress."

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, you'll never fess up to your sneaky lil collaborations, but we got all the receipts," Diet Prada said. So, unless the people behind Fashion Nova are secretly psychics, this theory holds up.

As of writing, Kim hasn't responded to the allegations. If this is true, then she has a looot of explaining to do.
