Kim Kardashian accused of stealing Naomi Campbell's style as they wear identical outfits

KIM Kardashian has been accused of copying supermodel Naomi Campbell's catwalk style.

The reality TV icon has paid homage to her fashion inspiration at several red carpet events and now eagle-eyed social media users have called her out.

Kim donned a vintage blue and purple Versus Versace dress as she attended Chance the Rapper's recent wedding.

Naomi had previously worn the eye-catching frock for a Versace runway in 1996 and was the outfit used when the supermodel was immortalised in a waxwork figure soon after.

The comparisons continue with some of Naomi's more recent looks with Kim being spotted exploring Los Angeles last year in an identical costume to what the supermodel donned while filming TV series The Face in 2013.

The black ensemble featured a neck choker with belts strapped across the waistline connected to a matching skirt.

Kim later raided her Naomi Campbell dressing-up box to recreate the model's sparkling look from the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards.

Kim donned the exact same outfit at last December's Versace fashion show in New York.

Naomi looked radiant in 2015 attending The Fragrance Foundation Awards in a feather-design silver gown.

Kim was clearly inspired as she wore the frock in December 2018 for the premiere of The Cher Show in New York.

One Twitter user put: "Twinning? More like Kim Kardashian TRYING to imitate legendary supermodel Naomi Campbell."

Another questioned: "Why does Kim Kardashian want to be 90s Naomi Campbell so bad?"

Following on from Kim posting a picture of herself at Paris Fashion Week, one follower told the star: "Naomi Campbell way before you, darling!"

As social media posts about the fashion faux-pas went viral, people flocked to comment on Kim's copycat style.

One fan put: "Naomi Campbell wore it better."

Another ranted: "Everything Naomi Campbell did, Kim Kardashian did it worse."

A third argued: "It's like I've been saying, Kim Kardashian has copied Naomi Campbell's whole face. How does no one else see it?"




However, one follower kept a more empowering and positive tone.

They put: "I'm obsessed with the fact @KimKardashian gets inspired by @NaomiCampbell iconic looks.

"We love to see women supporting other women!!"

Although Kim and Naomi have been pictured together on several occasions, the 90s supermodel once appeared to shade the reality star during a TV interview.

In 2014 Naomi was asked her opinion on Kim and Kanye landing a cover shoot for Vogue magazine, to which she at first offered "no comment" before cackling nervously.

Naomi then explained: "I'm a fashion model and I've been working for 28 years, and when you get a Vogue cover, it's a build in your career, it's a stepping stone to achieve that."

Driver accused of plowing into crowd of people with Range Rover following bar spat

A New Jersey man deliberately rammed his Range Rover into a crowd of people as they were standing outside of a bar, sending two of them to the hospital — including a woman who’s at risk of losing limbs, officials said.

The mayhem unfolded early Saturday at a watering hole in Elizabeth, according to city spokesperson Kelly Martins.

Driver Robenson Louis, 32, of Orange, had gotten into a drunken spat with someone outside the bar and was allegedly attempting to exact revenge.

“There was some sort of ruckus,” Martins told The Post on Wednesday. “[Louis] allegedly drove his Range Rover vehicle into a crowd of pedestrians several times before fleeing the scene.”

The luxury SUV owner injured two people — a 24-year-old Union man and 29-year-old woman from Orange who suffered “limb-threatening injuries,” according to Martins.

Louis was reportedly arguing with the woman’s boyfriend before he got behind the wheel.

“It was God-awful to see this guy up and down on the sidewalk, running into people,” a witness told ABC. “It was horrible. Everybody was just howling I guess because it was such a traumatic thing.”

Cops charged Louis, who was later caught and arrested, with possession of a weapon for unlawful purposes (vehicle), aggravated assault, assault by auto while driving while intoxicated, knowingly leaving the scene of an accident and two related weapons charges. He was also slapped with six summonses.

Private school teacher accused of holding mock slave auction

A white fifth-grade teacher at a private school in tony Bronxville is accused to holding a mock slave auction in which black students were put in “imaginary chains” while their white classmates were urged to bid on them — as she played auctioneer.

Vernex Harding, the mom of one of three black students in the social-studies class at The Chapel School in Westchester County, said her child told her that the teacher took him and the other two kids, both girls, into the hallway earlier this week and “started to put imaginary chains on our necks, our wrists and shackles on our ankles.”

“I was in shock,” Harding told The Post on Friday.

The black students were then brought back into the classroom, where the white kids were pushed to bid on them while teacher Rebecca Antinozzi acted as the auctioneer, the mom said.

“When they got inside the classroom, she started a bidding process going, ‘$100, $200 …’ and said to one of the other kids, ‘You’re a wealthy white man’ and started bidding at $300,” Harding said.

The alleged incident happened Tuesday at the pre-K through-eighth-grade school, where annual tuition runs up to $14,000.

“He was humiliated,” Harding said of her child. “My son doesn’t want to see her again, and I don’t want to see her again.”

New York Attorney General Letitia James confirmed to The Post on Friday that she has launched a probe into the matter.

“The reports of racist ‘lessons’ by a teacher at The Chapel School are deeply troubling,” James said in a statement. “My office is monitoring this matter closely.”

A source familiar with the situation said James’s office has been contacted by parents of children at the school –- both black and white –- who went home feeling “very uncomfortable” by the incident.

The parents complained to James’s office that there has been previous incidents involving teachers and black students that “bordered” on being racist, “but nothing as egregious as this,” the source said.

Antinozzi’s lawyer, Jordan Brooks, said in a statement: “The portrayal of the history lesson that has been reported is inaccurate, out of context, contains false facts and ignores the overwhelming support of Ms. Antinozzi from dozens of parents at the school, including several letters of support from African-American parents with children who have been taught by Ms. Antinozzi.

“Ms. Antinozzi loves her students and is beloved by them. To the extent anyone took offense to a small portion of the overall lesson that day that was used solely to emphasize the tragic injustice of slavery, it certainly was never intended,” Brooks said.

The Chapel School did not return a request for comment by The Post, but its principal called the lesson “racially insensitive and hurtful” in an e-mail, according to PIX11.

The teacher has since been removed from the classroom, the news outlet reported.

Meanwhile, a parent of two students who did not want to be identified told The Post that Antinozzi is “a great teacher” who “cares about every child.”

“If it happened as I read it, it’s a horrible error in judgement, but it does not represent who she is and what she means to the kids there,” the parent said.

Cops nab suspect accused of robbing New Jersey man before stuffing him in car trunk

A heartless thug who robbed a New Jersey man at gunpoint before stuffing him in his car trunk has been nabbed by cops while another is still at large.

Damian Carrington, 22, of Hillside, spent some 12 hours in the frigid cold after he was carjacked on Wednesday night by two armed thieves who forced him to remove cash from local ATMs then beat and bound him and stuffed him in the back of his Nissan Altima.

New Jersey police on Friday arrested and charged JaVohn Berrouet, 24, with first-degree carjacking, first-degree kidnapping, first-degree robbery, two first-degree weapons offenses and three second-degree weapons offenses.

A teenage superhero came to Carrington’s rescue on Thursday morning after she heard strange noises coming from the trunk of a parked car while she was walking her dog, Milkshake, in neighboring Irvington.

One of Carrington’s saviors said his face was “all smashed up” and he had been bound by his hands with tape.

Cops arrested Berrouet at a Hillside address on Thursday night and recovered a ski mask and 45-caliber handgun.

The other perp remains at large.

According to law enforcement, the two thieves approached Carrington on Avy Street in Hillside about 7.30pm on Wednesday.

Brandishing handguns, the men forced Carrington to withdraw cash from two different banks before they tied him up and left him to die inside the trunk of his black Nissan Ultima.

He spent 12 hours in his trunk in the frigid cold — with temperatures in the high teens — before Kayla Rose, 17, came to his rescue after she heard “knocking and scratching” coming from the car.

“I moved closer and said, ‘Hello?’” Rose told The Post.

She heard a man answer back, “Hello? I need some help!”

Rose said she “got scared” and “nervous” so, “I got help quick.”

“I went to my neighbor across the street and they called the police,” Rose said. She also told her mom, Marie Banks.

The neighbor, Joe Bollaro, 70, tried to get the trapped man out of the car using a crowbar, but to no avail.

“I asked if he could breathe,” said Bollaro. “He said he could. I told him to ‘hang on, the police and fire department are on the way’.”

Firefighters managed to jimmy open the car door, fold down the back seat and pull out Carrington, who was bound with tape.

“His face was all smashed up,” Bollaro said. “He said they hit him. They had him tied up, his hands. The firemen had to cut him loose.”

Carrington suffered non-life-threatening injuries and was recovering at home on Friday.

“He was scratched up on his forehead,” Rose said.

Rose, a junior at Irvington High School, headed to school after the amazing discovery. Her mom and Bollaro called the teen “a hero”.

“I told her, ‘You saved a life today. You are a hero!” said Banks.

“How many times you hear people found dead in a trunk?” Bollaro added, “She found him.”

A woman who identified herself as the victim’s grandmother told The Post she was “worried sick” about Carrington.

Union County Crime Stoppers is offering a reward of $10,000 for information which may lead to an additional arrest and indictment in the case.

World leaders accused of being ‘blind’ to climate change

The president of the Seychelles has accused world leaders of being “blind” to the threat of climate change.

Danny Faure told Sky News that his country was “paradise on Earth” and appealed to governments to do their bit to help save it.

President Faure spoke out as he was shown around the Ocean Zephyr, the mothership for the Nekton mission that will use submersibles to survey the deep-water reefs of the tropical archipelago.

He said: “Governments need to take responsibility. We cannot destroy our oceans.

“The Seychelles is such a beautiful country. It is paradise on Earth and our inhabitants are guardians of this paradise. We keep it for humanity.

“The scientific community, children around the world in schools – they see what is happening.

“So why can’t other governments. Are they blind?”

Coral reefs in the shallow waters of the Seychelles have been badly hit by rising sea temperatures. Some have been reduced to rubble.

Plastic pollution from thousands of miles away is being washed up on remote atolls, harming and killing marine life.

And the vast schools of tuna, which account for the islands’ second largest source of income after tourism, are beginning to move away in search of cooler water.

The Seychelles government is attempting to mitigate the impact by rapidly moving towards a “blue economy” to ensure fishing and other extraction is sustainable.

It recently swapped some of its debt in exchange for setting up a marine protected area that will soon be extended to cover 30% of its vast ocean territory.

But President Faure said climate change is a global problem.

“As (world) leaders we define our agenda,” he said.

“It’s time we pooled our resources for future generations.”

:: Sky News will broadcast live from 300 metres down in the Indian Ocean on 18,19 and 20 March. The series – called Deep Ocean Live – will examine the impact of plastic pollution and climate change, and includes the deepest ever live news programme from submersibles.

Man accused of killing wife might have killed her in chokehold: prosecutors

The stockbroker on trial for his wife’s murder demonstrated a martial arts chokehold in jail — the same technique prosecutors say he used to snap her neck, according to footage shown to jurors in Manhattan court Wednesday.

In the one-minute surveillance clip, Rod Covlin stands on one side of a round table across from another inmate in the law library of the Brooklyn Detention Complex.

Covlin, who has a black-belt in Taekwondo, bends forward and brings his left arm toward his chest.

He then turns and demonstrates the same move for the inmate with his right arm.

The Nov. 9, 2018, footage was introduced during testimony from Senior Medical Examiner Jonathan Hayes.

Assistant DA Matthew Bogdanos asked the forensic pathologist if the move could have been used on Shele Danishefsky.

“This folding of the arm and elbow is exactly how a chokehold is done,” he said.

Hayes said that the numerous scratches on Danishefsky’s lower face were also consistent with strangulation.

“They fight back by trying to claw the arm away from their neck,” he said, adding she may have scratched her own face during the desperate struggle.

The beautiful banker was found dead face down in the bathtub of her Upper West Side apartment by her 9-year-old daughter on Christmas Eve 2009.

Covlin had moved into an apartment across the hall, and Danishefsky had an order of protection against him.

The couple were in the midst of a contentious divorce and custody dispute over their two children.

Prosecutors say he murdered her for her money while defense lawyer Robert Gottlieb has argued that Danishefsky had a tragic accident while taking a bath.

Mom accused of faking 5-year-old son's illness for disability checks

Police say Teresa Lynne Roth, 34, made her 5-year-old son take 28 unnecessary medications for nearly two years.
(Hall County Sheriff’s Office)

A mother in Georgia faked her 5-year-old son's illness to collect disability checks, authorities say.

Teresa Lynne Roth, 34, forced her son to take 28 unnecessary medications and undergo unneeded medical treatments for nearly two years, according to investigators.

Her son, who was on numerous medications, was in a wheelchair and on a feeding tube as his parents drew disability checks on his behalf.


"It's messed up, you know? It's not normal," Lt. Scott Ware, with the Hall County Sheriff's Office, told Boston 25.

According to Boston 25, the case began in 2016 when the boy was taken to a hospital in Atlanta and received treatment for several illnesses — which investigators now say were completely made up. Once health care workers became suspicious of the mother, they alerted the Department of Family and Children's Services (DFCS), which removed the child from the home in October 2018.

Roth, who was arrested on Thursday, has been charged with first-degree child cruelty.


Her son, who is now in DFCS custody, is reportedly doing much better.

There could be additional arrests, according to investigators, as they learn more about the case.

Sommelier and wife accused of filming neighbours cleared of stalking

Vegetarian sommelier, 50, and wife who were accused of filming their ex-neighbours in feud over ‘rotten meat’ cooking smells seeping into their London home are cleared of stalking

  • Restaurant sommelier Christoph Hons, 50, and wife Sylvia, 45 were accused 
  • They filmed Scott Lawrence and Jessica Parker from cafes, the court heard 
  • Couple claim neighbours threw late-night parties and kept banging and drilling
  • Mr Lawrence and Ms Parker ended up moving elsewhere in London, court heard
  • The couple were cleared of stalking at Kingston-upon-Thams Crown Court 

A vegetarian couple, accused of stalking their ex-neighbours after claiming they endured intense ‘rotten meat’ cooking smells from next-door, have been cleared by a jury.

Senior restaurant sommelier Christoph Hons, 50, a wine and beverage expert at Mayfair’s Park Chinois and wife Sylvia Hons, 45, an architectural technician walked free from Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court.

Yesterday the jury, which had been reduced to ten because the anticipated four-day trial lasted eleven days, found them not guilty by a 9-1 majority.

Scott Lawrence and Jessica Parker moved out of their house in Twickenham, west London after their neighbours filmed them while sitting in local cafes, a court was told last week. 

The couple re-located after multiple run-ins with the Honses, who often complained about late-night parties, loud banging, drilling and dog-walking next door.

The German couple, who wasted £5,000 pursuing a civil claim against their former neighbours Mr Lawrence and his wife Jessica Parker, insisted they always had their phones at the ready to record potentially anti-social behaviour.

The Hons’, of Twickenham always denied stalking the couple in the local area by filming them on their phones between January 15 and April 29, last year.

They were accused of filming their former next-door neighbours while observing from local cafes and as they ran past with the Bearcat Running Club.

Both couples ended up filming each other with their phones and Go-Pro’s and Christoph, whose home is equipped with multiple CCTV cameras, was issued with a police harassment warning along with his wife and Mr. Lawrence.  

The original feud started when the defendants complained of ‘foul’ meat smells coming into their home.

Tracing the ‘rotten meat’ smell to a pipe that connected the two homes, Mr Hons called the police, sparking a furious row, Kingston-upon-Thames Crown Court was told.

Their neighbours Scott Lawrence and Jessica Parker moved out of their house in Twickenham, west London (pictured) over the row and set up elsewhere in the capital 

Describing the smell, Mr Hons told the jury: ‘Your home is full of this bad smell, in the curtains, in your clothes, all over the place.

‘It was very intense, foul meat, rotten meat. I am quite sensitive on taste and smell, it is a big part of my job.

‘We called the police every time that happened. Every time it occurred.’

Eventually they installed an insulation system that got rid of the odour, but the arguments continued, the court heard.       

Earlier in the hearing Ms Parker told the jury: ‘They tried to attract our attention to film us. I’d see them out of the corner of my eye.

‘I knew they didn’t want us to be in the garage area, but it was useful to us. We would throw a ball to the dogs and nobody else minded.

‘Eventually they got a ‘No Dog Walking’ sign put up there.

‘We had been exercising our dogs and Mrs Hons went back home to get her moped and drove it at us for half an hour, while filming.

‘My heart was pounding, but what is the best thing to do with a bully? We had been subjected to aggression, but when someone is bullying you, do you just scuttle off?’

Mrs Hons claims Ms Parker was enjoying the confrontation and ‘smiling’ because one of her dogs was barking at her, but the complainant says her dog was agitated by the deliberate moped revving.

Describing the smell, Mr Hons (pictured with his wife Sylvia outside court as he arrived for trial) told the jury: ‘Your home is full of this bad smell, in the curtains, in your clothes, all over the place. ‘It was very intense, foul meat, rotten meat. I am quite sensitive on taste and smell, it is a big part of my job. ‘We called the police every time that happened. Every time it occurred.’

The defendant recorded the incident, which was played to the jury, who heard Mr Lawrence shout: ‘You and your husband are freaks. We know you have eight or nine cameras.’

Mrs Hons claims Jessica told the dog: ‘Get her,’ and the jury were shown a doorstep confrontation the defendants filmed, while pointing their phone at Mr Lawrence.

He can be heard saying: ‘Call the police you voyeuristic p*****. You two have done nothing but harass me for the last six months while I’m walking my dogs.

‘The pair of you are f****** idiots.’

Mr Hons told the jury loud weekend parties began taking place in late 2015. ‘We could hear the music through the walls up until two or three am.

‘I complained, but I found them quite aggressive so reported the noise to their landlord. 

‘The parties stopped, but then they started throwing things at the walls and there was loud banging of doors up to midnight.

‘There was also six weeks of continuous drilling. You could feel the vibration through the wall. It was getting very annoying.’

Mr Hons told the jury he and his wife reported his neighbours to Richmond-upon-Thames’s Environmental Health department because of the constant noise.

He denied ‘laughing and abusing’ his neighbours as they walked past, giving them ‘the finger’ and damaging one of their vehicles.

Mr Hons insisted he would go out of his way to avoid confrontation in the street: ‘I would go behind a bush or a car to avoid contact with Mr Lawrence.

‘By that stage I was in a kind of fear and anxious about him. My cameras were to monitor and prevent an incident because I did not know how far it would go.

‘He once said: ‘I’m going to get you, I’m going to slap you.’ He was very aggressive.

‘I was shocked. We never gave him a reason to do that. I feared for the safety of myself, my wife, my house and my cat.

‘It was frustrating that the police really didn’t do anything to resolve this situation.’

Former Labour peer is accused of sexually exploiting vulnerable woman

Former Labour peer, 61, is accused of sexually exploiting a vulnerable woman who went to him for help 

  • Former Labour peer Lord Nazir Ahmed has been accused of exploiting a woman 
  • Tahira Zaman, 43, said Lord Ahmed used his position to take advantage of her 
  • A second woman claims that she was also propositioned by the 61-year-old peer 

Lord Nazir Ahmed, 61, has been accused of exploiting a vulnerable woman

A peer has been accused of exploiting his position to have sex with a vulnerable woman who came to him for help.

Former Labour peer Lord Nazir Ahmed is also alleged to have propositioned a second woman who sought assistance.

The 61-year-old, who was once jailed for texting while driving before a crash that killed a man, denies all allegations.

Tahira Zaman, 43, told BBC’s Newsnight last night that she was suffering from anxiety and depression when she approached the peer in 2017 through a friend.

She hoped Lord Ahmed would help get police to investigate a Muslim faith healer she felt was a danger to women.

Miss Zaman told Newsnight that Lord Ahmed said he wrote a letter to Metropolitan Police chief Cressida Dick. The peer, who quit Labour after he was accused of anti-Semitism, went on to have sex with Miss Zaman on a number of occasions.

She accepted the relationship was consensual but said: ‘I was looking for help and he took advantage of me. He abused his power.’ She claimed the relationship ended two months later when Lord Ahmed told her he would not leave his wife. Miss Zaman said: ‘I genuinely did believe that he had feelings for me. I’m just so stupid … I believed that he was going to help me.’

In January last year, she complained to the Lords Commissioner for Standards, Lucy Scott-Moncrieff, saying: ‘Lord Ahmed used my trust to repeatedly have intercourse with me.’

She added: ‘I feel I have been preyed upon due to my vulnerability and used by Lord Ahmed.’ But the Commissioner told Miss Zaman she was unable to investigate, stressing: ‘The behaviour you describe in your email could amount to a breach of personal honour.

‘However, the code [of conduct] only applies in relation to a peer’s parliamentary work and, from your email, it looks as if your initial contact with him was not to do with his parliamentary work.’

A second woman, who asked to remain anonymous, told Newsnight she had also asked Lord Ahmed for help. She claimed he suggested she should spend the night at his London home – which she interpreted as a proposition for sex. She refused.

A senior peer told Newsnight he believed the rules should now be clarified. Lord Carlile said: ‘If someone comes to you for help, particularly if they’re vulnerable … and you form a sexual relationship, actually that’s disgraceful.’

He added: ‘If it is not clear to the Commissioner, who is a very experienced lawyer, then I think the rules need to be clarified and in particular the guide to the code of conduct needs to be clarified.’

He insisted: ‘[Miss Zaman] went to Lord Ahmed because she believed he was in a position to do something influential for her. So it’s absolutely clear to me that what he was doing was in his role as a member of the House of Lords.’ But in a statement Miss Scott-Moncrieff, said: ‘Though credible and substantial, the complaint provided insufficient evidence that contact with the member was in relation to his parliamentary duties. I was therefore unable to launch an investigation. To conclude otherwise, as Lord Carlile has done, is to misunderstand the code.’

Lord Ahmed said last night: ‘I completely deny the allegation that I have exploited my position to pursue an inappropriate relationship with any member of the public (vulnerable or otherwise) or that I have acted inappropriately in the presence of women either in my personal or professional capacity.’

He added: ‘I take my duties as a Parliamentarian extremely seriously.’ Lord Ahmed of Rotherham became the first Muslim life peer in 1998. In 2013, he was suspended from Labour following anti-Semitism claims. He resigned from the party later that year and is now an independent.
