Jessica Simpson is ripping off Christian Louboutin
Safe to say that Jessica Simpson won’t be receiving a Christmas card this year from French footwear designer Christian Louboutin. Because her new platform sandal “Evangel” looks very similar to Louboutin’s platform sandal “Statarata.” And by “very similar” I mean “they’re the same fucking thing” (see here). From the Daily Mail:
Christian Louboutin designed the ‘Statarata’ in 2010, because clothing and accessories are not protected by copyright law in the US, the company will not be able to take action regardless of their views on Ms Simpson’s shoe.
Budget-conscious fashionistas however will no doubt be flocking to the shops to snatch up a pair of the affordable platforms. The ‘Evangel’ carry a fairly priced tag of $98 while the slightly daintier ‘Staratata’ set buyers back a whopping $995.
We might be jumping the gun on this one here, buddies. I can only imagine the rage that Christian Louboutin must feel knowing that thunder thighs Simpson totally ripped his designs off, but Jessica did make enough changes to his shoes to make them her own. For example, her shoes can support a maximum weight of 350 pounds. The Louboutins can’t do anything nearly as impressive as that. Also, Jessica added a very special feature to her brand shoes: they’re 100% edible.
“But Jessica, aren’t these made with plastic, leather, and metal parts?”
Jessica: “Of course, they’re shoes. What’s your point?”
