Penelope Featherington, aka Lady Whistledown herself, spilled the tea and revealed that Kim Kardashian and her Kardashian sisters provided inspiration for the actors as they portrayed the Featherington family on-camera.
“As the world’s number one @bridgerton Stan does @KimKardashian know that the Kardashians were a massive inspiration for the Featheringtons and we talked about them all the time during our fittings?” Coughlan asked in a tweet. “Because I feel like she should know this.”
Taking note of the tweet, Kim couldn’t contain her excitement and made it clear that she hadn’t been aware of this major detail.
WHAT?!?! I am freaking out!!!!!! This tweet was sent to me on my @bridgerton group chat! Can I please come to a fit… https://t.co/O2WUmFAf3Q

“WHAT?!?! I am freaking out!!!!!! This tweet was sent to me on my @bridgerton group chat! Can I please come to a fitting?!?! It would make my whole life!!!!!! I love you Lady W!!!” the Billionaire makeup mogul wrote.
Clearly loving Kim’s suggestion, Nicola made things official by saying, “Omg yesss of course we would love to have you!”

She also went on to share some more interesting trivia with the star in her tweet that read, “Also did you know that Mr Pearl made your corset for the Met Gala and the very next one he made was mine for Bridgerton? You’ve been part of the Bridgerton world for longer than you know!”
This called for another “OMG” from Kim, who replied with multiple wink emoticons and said, “I’m gonna faint!!!!!! Does this make me an honorary Duchess in Bridgerton?!?!?!? I am the corset Queen!!!”
