Kim Kardashian under fire over perfume bottle

Kim Kardashian's perfume bottle.

After weeks of teasing us with Kim Kardashian's new perfume bottle, the reality star and beauty mogul finally revealed the end product in her Twitter account--a miniature replica of her nude torso (as if we didn't already know). But, some netizens quickly noticed the similarity with another iconic bottle.

Jean Paul Gaultier's perfume bottle.
Fifteen years ago, Jean Paul Gaultier released "Classique" women's perfume collection featuring a woman's torso, sans the limbs and head, as the bottle. Several years later, the brand has released variations of it including a bottle wearing Madonna's iconic cone bra.

Kim Kardashian in an interview with Cosmopolitan 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."

While Jean Paul Gaultier hasn't released a statement yet, the brand posted something on Instagram that seems to shade Kim's perfume bottle. The caption says, "Keeping up with the fragrance's news!"
