They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but what about spoofing? Kathleen Lee and Katie Burroughs may have an opinion. The two San Francisco-based bloggers have been “recreating” Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s outfits on Tumblr since 2014 – who knew? The account is now defunct, but thankfully, the duo also has an account by the name of @What_Would_Yeezus_Wear on Instagram, amassing over 95,000 followers and giving us a few more laughs as we aimlessly scroll through our feeds every night.
Looking to the paparazzi shots of pop culture’s most famous couple, Lee and Burroughs have made it their mission to imitate every single aspect of the photos – and no detail is too small to overlook. The bloggers scour the likes of H&M and Forever 21 for bargain buys, determined to don what Kimye do: OTT jewelry, urban footwear, and enough neutrals to shame a Scandi. But it doesn’t actually end there. Also making an appearance are Kanye’s perpetual scowl, Kim’s coy face expressions, and even North with her signature sourpuss ways – the attention to detail is downright impressive, as you’ll soon see in the selection of images below.
Almost tragic is the fact that this hilarious account feels particularly relevant circa now, what with all this talk about Kylie Jenner’s “alleged” pregnancy, Kim naming her daughter Chicago, and – wait for it – conspiracy theories that one was a surrogate for the other. If that isn’t fodder for more genius posts, what is?
