KYLIE Jenner is once again being called out for failing to credit some designers while wearing their styles in her social media photos.
Fed up, fashion designer Michael Costello slammed the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star in the comments section of her new post about experiencing it all himself.
Kylie, who celebrated her 23rd birthday this week with a private jet trip with family and a intimate dinner with friends, shared a gallery of photos on Wednesday of herself in a colorful, bejeweled minidress by French fashion designer Olivier Rousteing.
She made sure to give the Balmain creative director a shout-out in the caption, writing: “thank you my love @olivier_rousteing for the most perfect bday dress 🌴”
While many of her 190 million followers fawned all over the “stunning birthday fit,” Michael blasted the Kylie Cosmetics founder for never crediting the “no-name designers” who “works hard.”
The angered designer wrote: “Thank you Oliver for the perfect bday dress. And thank you to the no name designers who work tirelessly around the clock on custom looks who she won’t tag, mention or @ . . . Unless it’s paid.
“And thank you to the glam team who always gets tagged no matter what.
“This post has nothing to do with me as Kylie only wears something from me once a year and I’m lucky if I get a decent pic to post.
“No shade to any of her team who styles her and no shame to the glam team.
“Even though we know you can not wait to unfollow me and drag me for filth!”
His comment, which has over 3,000 likes, continued: “But it’s sad that designers work so so so so hard on these opportunities to dress these gorgeous popular women and they only tag the major high end designers like Oliver but forget about the other ones.
“This has nothing to do with my brand, but it definitely has a lot to do with the la designers why not tag at least one ? Not all the time but maybe once in a while.”
Quite a few people applauded the designer for being so “real” about the situation, while others sided with Kylie and said he was being “entitled.”
All of this comes after Kylie was slammed last month for not crediting the Black-owned fashion label that designed the sexy desert look she posed in for multiple photos.
She first posted a snapshot of herself in a tight LoudBrand Studios dress, with a cold drink one hand and the other hand blocking the sun out her face.
She followed it up with three more photos of herself in the desert wearing the ruched, yellow-and-gold, one-shoulder garment.
The reality star reportedly did not tag the Black-owned company behind the dress in any of her photos and deleted any fans who tagged the clothing company in the comments section.
As they reportedly couldn't get word out via Instagram, fans started tweeting about it all, eventually trending Kylie's name on the platform for a couple of days.
One follower of hers wrote: “Kylie wears Black designers but never tags them. Pointless.”
Another said: “No, Kylie Jenner did not poster herself wearing a dress from a Black-owned brand…and didn’t tag the brand…and limited her comments…in this climate???”
Others said what she did was “lame asf” and that it’s a “cold world.”
After seeing all of the negative comments, Kylie eventually responded to the backlash to tell fans none of it was true.
She wrote: “Ok this is just a reach. Why would i ever REFUSE to tag a brand and block comments.
“This is completely false. i think this brand is amazing and i wanted to show support and will continue to do so.
“Everyone go check out @LoudBrndStudios.”
She also went back and tagged on the brand on the Instagram photos, and the Limited Edition Raw Edge VASHTIE Dress she wore in the pics ended up selling out.
This incident happened just a few weeks after another scandal, in which Forbes accused Kylie of lying about being a billionaire in order to get on the cover of their magazine.
The company put her net worth closer to $900 million after reevaluating.
