Naomi Campbell seemingly agreed with her fans that Kim Kardashian stole her look. 

On Wednesday, Kardashian, 41, debuted her Vogue cover story for the publication’s March issue. Although she opened up about divorcing Kanye West, motherhood, and choosing herself, some fashion lovers focused on her outfit choices. 

The SKIMS founder posed similarly to past icons in the shoot, including Campbell. The model then replied to the comparisons via Instagram.

Kim Kardashian once addressed her and Naomi Campbell’s comparisons 

Campbell’s social media response came after years of allegedly feuding with Kardashian. Despite the KKW Beauty founder stating the Star actor is one of her fashion icons, some fans believed she wanted to steal her shine. In 2019, social media commenters bashed Kardashian for wearing several of Campbell’s past runway looks. When asked about the comparisons, though, the mother of four stated that she and the cover girl are on good terms. 

“It’s funny because people were writing about it like it was some scandalous thing,” Kardashian told People. “I’ve always been so open that she is the ultimate fashion and glam muse. She’s got the best runway looks.”

“[Campbell] and I have talked about it and laughed that it has become such a big deal because I’ve always been so upfront with her privately about how she is my forever fashion and glam muse,” she continued. 

As for Campbell, she has brushed off questions regarding her alleged drama with Kardashian. However, she briefly commented on The Kardashians star’s first Vogue cover story with West. 

“That’s Anna Wintour’s choice to put them on the cover of her magazine,” she said when asked about Vogue’s choice, per HollywoodLife. “Who’s to question it?”
