Kendall wore the dress at Vanity fair oscar after party!
Kendall had worn the original dress by Italian prêt-à-porter fashion brand Redemption at the 2018 Vanity Fair Oscar after-party. The model paired the dress with its low-cut neckline and big, ruffled sleeves with dangling emerald earrings. She completed her look with a sleek, straight bob, subtle make-up and black stilettos.
Nikki apes Kendall
Nikki copied Kendall's and styled her hair like Kendall and also wore golden studs in her ears for accessories. While Kendall's dress had a plunging neckline, Nikki's version had a faux neckline. Another difference was that Kendall's version had sheer panelling on the side and was much shorter, while Nikki's was solid all around and a little longer.
Who is Diet Sabya? A fashion designer or an Instagram page?
Diet Sabya is an Instagram account who calls out Bollywood and television celebrities when they promote blatant copies of unique original designs. The account does not even spare the designers who make these priceless dresses for high profile Bollywood celebs. Even designers like Sabyasachi Mukherjee were connected with this Instagram account, although Mukherjee blatantly refused to any connections with the account.
Netizens slam Nikki for plagiarizing Kendall's Redemption outfit. Check out the comments below.
