So Messy! See The French Perfumer Who Came For Kim Kardashian's Edges With This Epic Clapback

“Keeping up with the fragrance's news!”

Published April 27, 2018

Whew! What a week.

Unfortunately, the drama doesn’t end in the beauty world either. After failing to break the internet with tons of NSFW nudie flicks, Kim Kardashian is on the receiving end of some HEAVY shade from French designer Jean Paul Gaultier.

ICYMI: Kim is launching KKW Body on 4.30, but the bottle is a near replica of JPG’s "Classique" bottle, which dropped in 1993. Looks like his social media team had time to respond yesterday and posted the below:

Kim caught up with Cosmo (get it?) and tried to squash the beef. "Sculptures were my inspiration, but I love that bottle," she explains. "It's iconic and celebrates the woman’s body, but my inspiration was a statue. I wanted [mine] to be really personal with my exact mold, but I’ve always loved the Gaultier bottles."

Looks like the apology wasn’t accepted because JPG followed up by showing their inspiration sketches from nearly 15 years ago. Damn, hitting her with archived shade! So messy.

Hitting hard since 1993. #Classique
