Fashion Fraud Squad: Wet Seal’s version of Christian Louboutin’s ‘Miss Fortune’ platforms


Kudos to Officer Lauren for catching Wet Seal in the act of impersonating Christian Louboutin's Miss Fortune platforms with their own lace-up slingbacks.  What puzzles us about this one is that, with a whole world of Louboutin loveliness to choose from, Wet Seal chose these particular shoes which, er, aren't so lovely, as their "inspiration", but of course, ours is not to question why. No, ours is simply to call in the Fraud Squad and move on.

The Wet Seal shoes are $24.60, the Louboutins $956. So Wet Seal definitely have the nicer price, anyway.

    Well, they’re very “Helen of Troy joins the Army.” The shoes that launched a thousand boos… hey, that kind of rhymes…
