In a shoot for the US version of Vogue, model and business mogul Kim Kardashian, 41, was trolled for copying supermodel Naomi Campbell. Supermodel Naomi also agreed with all the backlash by 'liking' a post that slammed Kim, giving thumps up to all the accusations.

The 'Keeping Up with Kardashians' star shared a series of photos from the shoot on social media, looking particularly familiar to Naomi's photoshoot done for one of the editions of Vogue 2020. Fans allege that the mother of four is apparently 'blackfishing' in the images. Fans trolled Kim for her attempt to copy Naomi and trying to appear as a different race in the latest photoshoot, as her skin shade appears to be darker than usual.

In the photo shoot, the SKIMS owner put on a long-sleeved white monokini dress with a high neck. Her chest was covered. She matched her hands with the outfit and wore white gloves looking in the center at the frame. She had straight black hair tied in a neat high bun.

Fans were quick to compare her with the front cover of Vogue's 2020 issue where Naomi too put on a monokini. Both the models had too much in common from hairstyle, pose, dress, and even Naomi’s skin color was plagiarised. Instagram fashion police Diet Prada, posted the two images of Kim's latest photoshoot alongside Naomi’s photoshoot for Vogue 2020 cover.
