Fans claim Gemma Collins inspired Kim Kardashian’s MET Gala dress

Kim Kardashian did not disappoint as she turned up to the Met Gala 2019 in a dazzling caramel Thierry Mugler gown.

Taking to the pink carpet at New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star made sure all eyes were on her as she stepped out in an outfit that looked soaked and dropped with diamond droplets, inspired by Raquel Welch by the sea.

However, some fans were quick to joke that Kim may have had another muse when picking out her ensemble, noting that her best friend Jonathan Cheban's CBB co-star Gemma Collins had once gone viral for wearing a very similar number.

Taking to social media after Kim debuted her dress, one fan criticsed her for not sticking to the Camp: Notes on Fashion theme, and teased: "Gemma Collins wore that dress first (and with more camp!)".

Gemma's outing in the orange gown, which has somewhat of a likeness to Kim's, was branded iconic back in 2017 when she wore it to the ITV Summer Party.

While The Only Way Is Essex star's dress didn't feature Kim's quirky water-droplets, it was a similar cut with a plunging neckline and a central thigh split, and had matching ruching down its front.

Unlike Kim's, Gemma's avant-garde gown, by London designer Gerda Truubon, boldly included golden chain-mail detailing down the seams.

It wasn't long before others also made the comparison on Monday, with Instagram meme page Love Of Huns also sharing a hilarious side-by-side of Kim and Gemma.

References to The GC aside, Kim's wetlook dress certainly got fans talking, as it was the first gown designed by Manfred Thierry Mugler in the last 20 years.

The designer creation was based on archive pieces from the Mugler fashion house.

Kim was joined on the pink carpet by the rest of the Kardashian Klan, who all embraced the 2019 theme.

Momager Kris Jenner looked almost unrecognisable in her ice blonde wig while model sister Kendall matched Kylie in a similarly styled naked feather dress.
