Why are netizens talking about Ara Mina, Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian? Beyoncé and Kim recently went viral for wearing extremely low-back, thong-baring evening gowns. But wait, back when Facebook and Twitter were not launched yet, Ara Mina had worn a similar gown. That was in 2002, and, just like the international stars, the 41-year-old actress became the talk of the town at the time.
On Sunday, November 2, 2020, Beyoncé took social media by storm with her comeback on the cover of British Vogue for its December 2020 issue. Beyoncé looked regal in a custom Christopher John Rogers evening gown, which bared a crystal-encrusted Agent Provocateur thong.

It became an opportunity to handle this crazy year together.” Throughout the making of #BritishVogue’s December issue cover story, @Beyonce told @Edward_Enninful she had a very important goal: she wanted to have fun.

Fashion lovers were quick to point out that the gown was similar to one worn by reality star Kim Kardashian a few weeks before. On October 17, Kim showed off her red string thong while wearing a black dress from Givenchy's Spring 2020 collection. The dress was designed by Matthew Williams, who was recently named as the brand's new creative director.
@insidethemood did a side-by-side comparison of their OOTDs on Instagram, and asked its followers who wore it better.
Celebrity photographer BJ Pascual loved both of their looks and mentioned that Ara donned the style 18 years ago.
BJ wrote in the comments section, "Both!! But ALSO @therealaramina [emoji] google 'ara mina mano po gown' #2002 hahaha @eldzsmejia @lynalumno @jellyeugenio"
