Does anyone else see a pretty gross Marc by Marc Jacobs “Alessandra Pussy Bow” dress knockoff here? I don’t even know where to start, it’s such a hot mess.
First, they got the material all wrong. The original is pure silk while the knockoff version seems to be polyester. They also gave the model that dress 2 sizes too big. See how it just hangs like a tent from her body while it hugs the model’s curves on the left? But the worst thing about it is the messed up bow on the collar. I mean, come on, don’t they know how to loop a decent looking bow?
Albeit looking very cheap the dress still costs freakishly $210. Considering that the original Marc by Marc Jacobs went on final sale at NeimanMarcus for $150, it’s blatant usury. Even Forever 21, where such a dress would cost $30 max, makes better knockoffs.
If you hoped to find a link to the original dress here, I’m sorry to disappoint you. The dress sold out fast after it was seen on Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl…which directly leads me to…
Blair Waldorf vs. Fergie
… A Fashion Faceoff! Leighton Meester (aka Blair Waldorf) has been sporting this cute preppy dress in the second Gossip Girl episode of season two called “Never been Marcused“.
Fergie did the same by wearing it to a Marc by Marc Jacobs fashion show with…sunglasses…in a dark showroom. Yeah, classy!
When I saw Samantha Harris‘s fierce red gown, I knew I had seen it before on someone else. And that someone else was no other than Katherine Heigl who wore an almost identical gown to the Oscars 2008. Katherine’s dress was Escada of course and it landed her a spot on my Oscars Best Dressed list.
I knew Samantha’s gown couldn’t be Escada, no reputable designer would ever give away a dress that has made such a big entrance to a red carpet event before, twice. The dresses also weren’t 100% identical as Samantha’s version didn’t look as exquisite as Katherine’s and the chiffon train on Samantha’s dress was missing as well.
I wondered who designed Samantha’s red gown and all of a sudden it hit me like a hammer. Samantha’s dress must be a knockoff version from Katherine’s Escada dress! And who is the first to turn to when it comes to red carpet dress replicas? Of course, Faviana!
One Shoulder Celebrity Inspired Red Gown by Faviana
See what I mean? The same dress as seen on Samantha Harris. I feel like this is a total “Oh no, she didn’t“-moment. You just don’t wear a knockoff gown to a major red carpet event. I mean it’s not like Katherine’s dress went unnoticed by the crowds. It was huge and everyone loved it, so I wonder if Samantha did really think no one would find out?
Katherine easily wins this. There is simply no competition between Escada and Faviana. And the fact that Samantha tried to get away with a knockoff gown at the SAG Awards really takes all the class out of it.
Oh, Solange, you are trying so hard to get out of your sister’s shadow. Even if it includes wearing hideous footwear Ã la sasquatch to mess up an otherwise decent outfit, homegirl is down for the attention. Get a stylist (not your Mom!). Like seriously.
Believe it or not, but this is how Mariah Carey got dressed up to host MTV’s TRL yesterday. This is so wrong, I don’t even know where to begin.
Wearing peakaboo tops with your bra visible underneath at the age of 20 is a fashion crime, wearing the same peekaboo tops with 37 is a) desperate and b) a fashion scandal! If she wasn’t famous, I bet everyone would mistake Mariah for a skank. The pants? I’m soooooo over acid washed jeans. And what is it with that silly chain peeking out of the jeans’ pocket? That’s so 1995. And the red peep-toe platforms? Well, that’s what I call drag queen-style.
Mariah’s make up & hair however is flawless as usual. Why does she never seem to get it right with her clothes? I guess it’s about time to either kick your stylist or hire one, darling. What a shame! Mariah is such a talented and beautiful woman, but her fashion sense is very questionable to say the least.
Rihanna did pretty well red carpet-wisely lately, but this Armani PrivÃ© getup is just not working on the Barbadian songstress.
I actually like the dress… on the model. Rihanna is wearing it way too low. Plus, she’s showing way too much cleavage here which makes her whole look tacky. Wardrobe malfunction calling! Not loving the shoes either.
1.) I hate this dress! It’s horrible. 2.) I hate this dress on Nicole Scherzinger! Nicole tries really hard to be fashion forward and… miserably fails.
There is such a thing as too much bling. Ashley Tisdale proves this with her over-the-top dress.
