Cécile Cassel and Kerry Washington wearing the same Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 blazer and skirt ensemble

Cécile Cassel attended the Fashion Dinner for Aids on January 29th in Paris being completely decked out in Louis Vuitton. The French actress wore a black Spring 2009 ensemble which consisted of a black blazer, a wide red and orange lace-up belt, a feathered black skirt and the obligatory safari standout heels.

Kerry Washington followed to wear the same basic blazer and skirt ensemble at the 2nd Annual ESSENCE Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon on February 19th in Beverly Hills. Kerry however decided to spice it up a little by adding a gold and silver lace-up belt, an oversized black clutch and animal print wedge pumps to her look.

I honestly think it’s nearly impossible to outdo Kerry here. She was absolute gorgeousness in that LV ensemble. Kerry also accessorized much better and experimented by opting out of wearing head-to-toe Louis Vuitton. The blazer seemed more fitted on her than on Cécile (also the skirt was longer on Cécile) and Kerry looks so happy and confident whereas Cécile seemed to be feeling slightly uneasy. Definite win for Kerry! But who’s your winner?

Bebe Spring 2009 Copying Like Crazy

by Profashionelle on March 24, 2009 · 2 comments

Today seems to be copycat day. First we had designer knockoffs and now I stumble upon with LOADS of “inspired by“-pieces from big names like Balmain (of course!), Louis Vuitton (sure!), Stella McCartney (again!), Alexander Wang (yeah!), Valentino (always!) and Christian Louboutin (not one to forget!). And these are just the ones I spotted. Who knows how many are left unidentified.

Let’s start with the Miami Vice look. I instantly thought of Alexander Wang’s Spring 2009 blazer/shorts combo when I saw the pink blazer, then my eyes went down to the shoes which are an almost identical version of Stella McCartney’s Spring 2009 mesh heels. And finally a bag k/o which looks very much like the Valentino sequin satin glamorous tote recently seen on Victoria Beckham and Fergie.

Balmain Spring 2009

Balmain gets copied A LOT these days ever since Decarnin took the lead design for the French fashion house. Not only did Bebe rip off the famous studded and rhinestoned sandals (also copied by Zara and ,) but they borrowed some of the dress styles, too.

Louis Vuitton Spring 2009

Bebe has taken a lot of inspiration from Louis Vuitton’s African Safari collection (Spring 2009) as well. There are no 100% matches, but the look and feel of the Bebe items are very Louis Vuitton-ish. The standout LV heels have made quite a statement in the fashion world as a lot of celebrities rocked them recently, so Bebe did their best to deliver “low”-cost fashion to the masses I guess.

Christian Louboutin

These badass Louboutins are a must-have shoe this season. Celebrities like Heidi Klum and Jennifer Lopez have been wearing this style and helped propel this shoe to super stardom. Of course, Bebe did not want to miss out on this shoe obsession, so they created the “Delaney” sandal, a watered-down version of the buckled Louboutin.

So, what do you think? Do you like the Bebe knockoffs or do you prefer the real thing? Let me know.

Are you going to buy any of the Bebe knockoffs?

Most of the items haven’t hit the shelves yet, but expect them to be up for sale in a few days and I’m pretty sure the knockoffs, especially the Balmain-esque rhinestone stilettos will be sold out fast. I will let you guys know when these are available online, so if you haven’t subscribed via E-Mail yet, now is the time to do so.

Lanvin bag, Yves Saint Laurent ring, Vivienne Westwood dress, Oscar De La Renta shoes, Smythe peacoat

Green is my absolute favorite color, so I couldn’t pass upon the chance to create a St. Patrick’s Day outfit even though it’s a bit late now. Hope you like it.
