It was impossible not to notice Kendall Jenner when she wafted into the Met Gala draped in a black beaded mesh dress designed by luxe lingerie fashion house La Perla. Want to ensure every single set of eyeballs are on you? Wear this, and do so with a killer smile a la Jenner.

But the internet has been quick to point out that the model’s see-through, floor-length ensemble, with its dangerously low back and slash cut-out on the front, looks like a copy of the barely-there dress that actress Rose McGowan wore to the 1998 MTV Awards.

Ummmmm. While the dresses do have similarities (they’re both black, both mesh-like, both show off a whole lot of bum, both require the utmost confidence), we’re not completely convinced that Jenner is copying McGowan. If anything, Jenner’s dress feels slightly more conservative than McGowan’s, not that it matters. Besides, how old was Jenner in 1998?

There have been plenty of other fashion-forward women who’ve gone for the gauzy, see-through gowns on red carpets past. Like Rihanna’s knit maxi dress in 2014:

And Amber Rose’s silver chain dress in 2014:

All of these women look totally badass, and if they feel happy and comfortable carrying these looks down a red carpet, then all the power to them.

While it’s safe to say that most young Kendall Jenner fans have probably never even heard of Rose McGowan (or Marilyn Manson, whom the actress arrived with to the MTV Awards with that year) until now, but the Twitterverse has, and it is in a serious tizzy.

Here are some more of the reactions to Jenner’s statement-making dress. What do you think of the comparison? Tell us in the comments below or on Twitter @TheLoopCA.
