We knew Khloe Kardashian’s beaded dress looked familiar when she rolled up to her mom’s Great Gatsby bash: it was inspired by Rihanna’s own beaded number from the CFDA Awards! Both beauties look stunning, but we have to ask — who wore it better?
Khloe Kardashian, 31, wore a gorgeous, curve-hugging bronze beaded gown to Kris Jenner‘s 60th birthday party, keeping in line with the Great Gatsby dress code. Rihanna wore a similar, shimmering beaded number to the 2014 CFDA Awards, and Khloe has fully copped to it being her inspiration. Which look do you like better?
Let’s get a good look here. Jaws dropped when Rihanna stepped onto the red carpet at the 2014 CFDA Awards, wearing an intricate, but barely there Adam Selman gown, made of 230,000 Swarovski crystals. The blush-toned gown was all shimmer and no slips — as in, besides a nude thong, every inch of Rihanna was visible underneath those delicate crystals. There wasn’t any speak of nip slips that night, because everything was already seen.
But she looked incredible! Add her matching crystal and mesh cap and elbow-length gloves, and a blush pink fur stole, she was the picture of elegance. It’s just a more modern picture than anyone’s used to! And what would you expect from someone who was strutting the carpet to go receive the Fashion Icon Award?
After fans pointed out that Khloe’s look at her mom’s Roaring 20s affair looked a lot like Rihanna’s, she tweeted her admiration for the singer: “She was my inspiration. No one can do it like she did. I was inspired by her dopeness. Love Rih and loved my look.” Khloe’s dress did bear a striking similarity to Rihanna’s, right down to the beaded cap. Khloe’s $16,500 custom Yousef Al Jasmi gown was a curve-hugging, somewhat see-through number, though she was drastically more covered up.
Khloe’s dress featured a nude underlay, which still gave the illusion of nudity, as well as full sleeves. It was her mother’s birthday party, after all! Khloe looked like a million bucks, glistening like one of the wealthiest aristocrats from the 1920s itself! However, she might have gotten her inspiration a bit wrong; both her and Rihanna’s dress bore a resemblance to Mia Farrow‘s luxe look when portraying Daisy Buchanan in…The Great Gatsby. Khloe was definitely more on theme than she imagined!
