Kylie Jen­ner

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE -

Kylie Jen­ner could face le­gal ac­tion over her cos­met­ics line. The 19-year-old re­al­ity star has been ac­cused of rip­ping off the pho­tos Vlada Hag­gerty uses to pro­mote her work on so­cial me­dia in her hol­i­day ad­ver­tis­ing for Kylie Cos­met­ics and now the Los An­ge­les­based make-up artist and her pho­tog­ra­pher are re­port­edly plan­ning to file a law­suit due to the sim­i­lar­ity be­tween the im­ages, TMZ re­ports. Vlada shared a com­par­i­son be­tween her pic­tures and Kylie's ads on In­sta­gram ear­lier this month and wrote: "Re­ally @kyliecos­met­ics? Haven't you got­ten enough 'in­spi­ra­tion' from me al­ready? Left is a the work @ju­li­akuz­menko, @brit­tra­fu­son and I shot a few months ago and right is @kyliecos­met­ics new cam­paign. (sic)" This isn't the first time Vlada has ac­cused the 'Keep­ing Up With the Kar­dashi­ans' star of copy­ing her ideas, as she slammed her last year for steal­ing an im­age of lips drip­ping with gold. At the time, she said she was ex­cited to see her work be­ing show­cased by Kylie, but was up­set she didn't re­ceive a credit or even get any con­tact from the re­al­ity star or her team. She said: "Cred­it­ing artists is es­sen­tial, but this goes be­yond that. "It's theft; this is our liveli­hood... I see these things hap­pen too many times to artists." Kylie re­cently ad­mit­ted she al­ways dreamed of hav­ing her own store at the Topanga West­field Mall, ahead of her pop up shop open­ing there next month. Shar­ing a pic­ture of the out­side of her store, she wrote: "It was all just a dream com­ing soon to the Topanga West­field Mall. I grew up at this mall .. Crazy 12.9.16 (sic)." The beauty mogul - who had been work­ing on Kylie Cos­met­ics for two years prior to launch­ing her es­tore ear­lier this year - has given a sneak peek as to what the in­te­rior will be. Along­side a pic­ture of her dis­cussing her plans with her cre­ative team, and her col­league hold­ing a lap­top with a de­sign lay­out on the screen, she wrote: "MY VI­SION. I can't wait for you guys to see what goes on in­side my mind & what I've been work­ing on. 100% Kylie. (sic)."
