It’s been a while since we had a dose of Shoe Deja Vu around these here parts, so here’s a pretty clear-cut case, from Jessica Simpson and Gucci. The latter’s Babouska’s sandals are no longer available most places, but retailed for over $1,000 when they were first released.
Jessica Simpson’s ‘Alexandra’ shoes, meanwhile, are a different colour from the Guccis pictured, but also come in black, which Gucci also released their shoe in. They’re just £54.80 at Nordstrom.
Why is it that when celebrities “design” shoes, they tend to take “inspiration” so blatantly from other designers? Yes, Paris Hilton, I AM looking at you…
I like the Jessica Simpson ones better, but that’s just me I guess.

I have the primark version of these and have worn them to death. I always get compliments on them and are told they look more expensive each time too!
Wow, they’re almost impossible to tell apart aren’t they?

i like j-simp’s better too…i have no problem with “inspiration” done that way…close but no cigar is great when it allows one to save many hundreds of dollars…unless one is a label fanatic why wouldnt one want to be able to purchase extra shoes with the savings…i only take issue with “inspiration” when the shoe looks the same except for the label (ie: the madden vs McQ shoe)
