What’s the difference between being inspired by a design and completely copying it? These days, not much.
In today’s second edition of this thing looks like that thing, Cellar Paper points out that a pair of Jessica Simpson Evangela heels look an awful lot like Christian Louboutin‘s Staratata heels. Simpson sports the heels in an advertisment in Elle‘s April issue, for which she’s also the naked cover girl. The Simpson sandals cost $98, while the Louboutin shoes will set you back $995.
Both pairs feature the same pink and yellow straps, black and purple sole, and contrast buckle. The only difference between them is that Simpson’s doesn’t have red lacquer on the bottom — which actually doesn’t even matter because her pair is basically a carbon copy.
