Fashion Police Fraud Squad: Hervé Léger’s rainbow bandage dress

Hervé-Léger's-badge-dress

We somehow don't think anyone's going to be confusing Ami Clubwear's rainbow bandage dress ($31.99) with the Hervé Léger original, (£2,035) do you?

Nope, didn't think so.

    No offence to the model, but I think only the people with the greatest bods (that is, curves in the right places) can get away with this sort of dress. That is: curves in the right places and erm… flat stomachs.

    Both dresses fail two What Not to Wear tests:
    1. No wide horizontal stripes
    2. Banding should be below the bustline, not across it
    These dresses were obviously conceived by a designer who hates women and wants us to simultaneously look dowdy and slutty, although I must admit that’s a hard combination to achieve, so I guess kudos on success there.

    That dress is doing the model absolutely no favors. Can we say love handles?

    You’ve tapped into a rich vein at Ami Clubwear – I can guess which prom dress is being cuffed as we speak…

    I like the impostor one better too! The designer is way too close to tie-dye!!!

    I like it better with the black background, but it is giving that model some unfortunate muffins.
    I’d hate to see how it looked on a non-model!

    I think the original is actually very pretty – has a kinda “out to lunch on a summer day” vibe.
    The copy certainly does the model no favours – but her make-up, posture and expression does much more for the slutty vibe than the dress itself (oh yeah, and her standing in front of a yellow sports car a la “Hod-rods and Hotties” magazine).

    I really like the Herve Leger dress!
    The copycat, not so much. It looks very cheap. That poor model!
