The whole world is inspired by Kim Kardashian’s style and now, younger half-sister Kylie Jenner is making headlines, herself. Although both consistently deny rumors of any sibling rivalry, Kylie’s actions prove otherwise. This brings us to the question, is Kylie Jenner copying Kim Kardashian?
The 18-year-old star has been seen following into her elder sister’s footsteps on more than one occasion. Today, Kim posted a picture on Instagram wearing the tiniest one-piece bathing suit she has ever worn, happily flaunting her post-baby body on Instagram. Kim and Kanye West welcomed their second child, son Saint West in December 2015. Since then, Kim has been working really hard to shed-off the extra weight gained during her pregnancy. To show off her hard work, she took to Instagram to show the world her perfectly toned body.
The mother of two posted a selfie with the caption, “Pre photo shoot fittings.” Do we sense a sensational photo shoot coming up real soon? Kim hid her face behind her camera while clicking the selfies.
Hours after Kim posted the picture, Kylie immediately uploaded her own version of the picture, wearing a black and white bikini. Kylie’s caption said, “Fun now I can share more photos.” After looking at both the sisters photos, we cannot help but wonder: is Kylie copying Kim Kardashian?
Speculation of the sibling rivalry has come up before but Kim smartly denied all the rumors by saying, “It’s so funny. Kylie and I laugh so hard at this all the time, because people always want to pit us against each other, thinking we have similar careers.” She further added, “I think it’s amazing–there’s no one else I would want to be in the same business with than my sister. She teaches me so much, and I teach her so much, and we’re both so close that it’s just funny.”
Kylie, also firing back on her personal app said, “People always put me and Kim in a competition, Or [say] I’m trying to be Kim or I’m trying to steal Kim’s throne.’
‘I think people forget that me and Kim are sisters. We’re not in a competition. We’re completely different people.’
‘She’s one of my biggest inspirations. That’s not a secret, I look up to my sister. I don’t think that’s a weird thing. We have a lot of love for each other.”
This is not the first time Kylie has copied her sister and uploaded picture hours after Kim did. There have been few cases in the past of this happening, as well. In fact, in one of the episodes of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kylie sneaked into Kim’s closet and wore one of her dresses to a premiere, which Kim was mad at her for. Now, even if it’s not her clothes, Kylie seems to be copying Kim’s style.
It’s just not Kim’s fashion or style of wearing clothes, Kylie seemed to be inspired by Kim’s brand and hence started her own lipstick and lip gloss business. She wants to have her own strong brand and recognition in the industry.
Kylie seems to be inspired by her elder sister’s business as well as sense of fashion, but few experts have shared the opinion that she should create her own style statement, and not just follow into her sister’s footsteps. Maybe then people will stop asking: is Kylie Jenner copying Kim Kardashian?
