In this day and age, where social media rules all and a picture of your outfit can travel around the world within minutes, it’s becoming more and more difficult to get away with wearing the same outfit as another celebrity. Just ask Blue Mbombo and her designer, who was accused of stealing Bonang Matheba’s 2013 outfit earlier this year; somebody should have called the fashion police (I’ll see myself out)
However, sometimes it’s not the result of thievery or copy-catting; sometimes celebrities wear the same outfit by accident. Even if it’s within the space of a week.
Local IT-Girls Boity and Amanda Du Pont found themselves in this exact situation when pictures of them wearing the same jumpsuit made their way to social media.
Amanda was the first to wear the jumpsuit which was clearly designed to accentuate one key area of her body. She wore it to her birthday party at the beginning of the month.
At this weekend’s Durban July, Boity decided to try on the same outfit. We’re not sure if she was aware of the fact that Amanda had worn it a few days prior.

However, it’s perfectly possible that although they didn’t copy one another; they both drew inspiration from the same source. Kylie Jenner stepped out in the same jumpsuit just over a month ago

So I guess the only remaining question is: who wore it best? Boity, Amanda or Kylie Jenner?
