Kim Kardashian West has hit back at claims the bottle for her new fragrance KKW The Body has been designed with the Jean Paul Gaultier Classique bottle in mind.
The KKW Body fragrance, which launches today, was created as an exact replica of Kardashian West’s body by using digital scans and a body mold, with the resulting bottle drawing comparisons to that of the bottle for Jean Paul Gaultier’s iconic Classique scent.
Kardashian West spoke to Cosmopolitan about the furore and said, “Sculptures were my inspiration, but I love that bottle. 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.
“We were making a mold of my body for the fragrance, but we were also making it to make a big sculpture.”
