People Are Accusing Kim Kardashian Of Stealing Her Perfume Bottle Design

Kim Kardashian recently dropped some hints and images for her brand new fragrance being introduced for her Kim Kardashian West beauty line. Among the “hints” were a lot of nudity–which is not rare for the mother of three.

The reality TV star began posting photos of her naked body on social media.

And, revealed she used a complete body mold in order to create her fragrance bottles.

We took a mold of my body and made it a perfume bottle. @kkwfragrance

While the bottle is an exact mold of her body, some users on Twitter are saying that Kim ripped off the idea to make a “body mold bottle” from another designer and fragrance by Jean Paul Gaultier.

And, Jean Paul Gaultier (or, whoever runs their social media accounts) decided to throw a little shade at Kim, as well.

Kim, however, denies stealing the idea from Gaultier at all. She told 

“Sculptures were my inspiration, but I love that bottle. It’s iconic and celebrates the woman’s body, but my inspiration was a statue. I wanted [mine] to be really personal with my exact mold, but I’ve always loved the Gaultier bottles.”

So–I guess inspiration isn’t exactly stealing–according to Kim.
