They say imitation is the highest form of flattery, but it’s not looked upon too favourably when somebody makes a fortune from ‘ripping off’ somebody else’s work!
Kylie Jenner has been accused of shamelessly copying make-up artist Vlada Haggerty in her new promotional cosmetic shots.
In the pics, 19-year-old star is covering her eyes with gold-painted hands and showing off her enhanced lips covered in maroon lip stick - but it’s almost a complete copy of a photograph Vlada put on her Instagram in September.
“Really @kyliecosmetics?” Vlada captioned on a pic of the images side by side.
“Haven't you gotten enough 'inspiration' from me already? Left is a the work @juliakuzmenko, @brittrafuson and I shot a few months ago and right is @kyliecosmetics new campaign.”
Fans jumped to the make-up artist’s defence by posting snake emojis on Kylie’s make-up line's Instagram page.
It’s not the first time the curvy realty star has been accused of ‘stealing’ from Vlada!
Back in September, Kylie came under fire for her Lip Kit’s brand logo resembling the LA-based make-up artist’s similar dripping lips imagery.
After Vlada voiced her outrage over the blatant copying of her work, Refinery29 reports that Lip Kit By Kylie edited the post to add: "inspo by @vladamua."
“They are my lips, my photo, my editing, my home made lipstick color using @graftobianmakeup Cosmetic Powdered Metal in copper and clear gloss (sic),” Vlada ranted.
“I am not involved with @lipkitbykylie in any way.”
