Kim Kardashian drops huge hint about a sculpture while slamming accusations that she ripped off KKW Body's design
Kim Kardashian is not the one to take vile online criticism lying low. After some self-appointed critics called out the reality star accusing her of ripping off her new body-shaped perfume bottles from Jean Paul Gaultier's 1993 designs, the mother-of-three broke silence to set the record straight.
"Sculptures were my inspiration, but I love that bottle," the reality TV queen married to rapper Kanye West told Cosmopolitan, slamming rumors that she copied the classic bodice design. "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."
While Kardashian clearing the air on the comparisons didn't come as a shock, what turned out to be unexpected was her reason for creating a mold of her own physique; pictures of which recently took social media by surprise.
Explaining the molds, the KKW maven added: "We were making a mold of my body for the fragrance, but we were also making it to make a big sculpture."
Earlier, the Keeping Up With The Kardashian star had shared a picture of her apparently nude self, covered in mold, writing: "We took a mold of my body and made it a perfume bottle. @kkwfragrance"
However, the idea and the body-inspired design didn't go down well with many fans of the French designer's ever-popular perfume Classique, featuring a woman's bodice.
"Same old attention seeking tactics from Kim Kardashian. And this is the reason why Jean Paul Gaultier’s iconic perfume is called Classique. #nothingbeatstheoriginal," slammed one user.
Another fan took a shot writing, "Kim Kardashian’s new perfume bottle looks like Jean Paul Gaultier’s Classique and Alexandros of Antioch’s Venus de Milo sculpture had a baby. #KKWBODY".
