All eyes were on a radiant Taylor Swift at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards as she premiered her long-awaited “Bad Blood” music video and snagged eight awards. But while it was quickly reported that Balmain was the label behind her outfit, a Charlie’s Angels-inspired white jumpsuit, e-tailer Nasty Gal posted on Instagram claiming responsibility for the look.

The post in question, which has since been taken down, claimed that Swift had donned a Nasty Gal original — the Frisco Inferno jumpsuit ($78), which bears more than a passing resemblance to the Balmain look. Fans and followers quickly began commenting and questioning the claim. In fact, the singer’s Balmain one-piece was part of a push by the label, which announced an H&M collaboration the same night and which was also worn by Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen.
