Over the weekend Kim Kardashian West attended the Hollywood Beauty Awards in Los Angeles in a barely there vintage Thierry Mugler gown. The dress, from the house’s spring 1998 haute couture collection, had people talking online. (A sampling of headlines: “Kim Kardashian Wore the Sexiest/Craziest Dress Ever and Was THIS Close to Having a Nip Slip,” “Kim Kardashian Wore Her Most Revealing Dress Yet and Twitter Is Shook,” “Kim Kardashian Debuts Her Most Shocking Dress Yet (and Avoids a Wardrobe Malfunction).”) And within hours it had been knocked off.
By Monday, shoppers could go on Fashion Nova’s website and purchase the “Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown,” a black maxi featuring cutouts and slits similar to those on Kardashian West’s Mugler dress. Its product description doesn’t reference her or her look, but it still sold out. (There’s an option to join a waiting list.)
