Why Fans Are Calling Khloe Kardashian Out Over Her $6,500 Outfit By A Kuwaiti Designer

If anyone knows how to dress for an occasion, it’s a Kardashian. And last night, at Kourtney’s 40th bash, we’re giving the most standout-look-of-the-night award to sister Khloe who wowed in a stunning crystal dress by Kuwaiti designer Yousef AlJasmi. But fans have something to say about 37-year-old reality TV star’s outfit choice for the evening – and it’s not the hefty price tag.

In an exclusive interview with People, Yousef Al Jasmi, the Arab designer and Kardashian-fave revealed that the dress and matching headpiece, made from mesh and Swarovski crystals, took two weeks to create and is worth $6,500.

But fans were quick to point out that the look is very similar to Rihanna’s iconic CFDA outfit, which she walked the red carpet in five years ago.

Quick to point out the comparisons was Instagram’s favourite page calling out sartorial injustices, Diet Prada. “Her look for Kourtney’s 40th b-day last night is giving some serious Rihanna vibes,” the write. “It’s not the first time she’s interpreted this look though...at least she credited @badgalriri as the inspiration for her lewk for Kris’ 60th Birthday back in 2015?”

Khloe’s outfit from Kris’ 60th birthday that Diet Prada is referring to is another creation from Yousef AlJasmi that bears a striking resemblance to this weekend’s ensemble.

It's also reminiscent of Kelly Rowland’s dress at the City of Life Gala last year.
