Imitation-the sincerest form of flattery?

The second these Versace's hit the runway, I think everyone could pin the inspiration. Marni's sensational buckle platform circa fall 07 was one of the sellout shoes of the season (even here in Dallas!). Mom has the version in black leather and mine is in olive satin (yes, we do often end up getting the same shoes...we don't mind 'sharing') While it's easy to see why anyone would be inspired by Consuela's amazing shoes, I can't help but feel a little bit gypped. Oh well, at least I still have the original!

*a helpful reader has informed that these are not Louboutin for Versace, the soles are just painted to imitate a Loub...now that's just sleazy!

Its always funny when a big, talentless designer rips off a smaller immensely talented one. The originals are still better.

To clarify, they are not Louboutin for Versace, she just knocked him off too and painted her soles very dark, almost red, pink.
