yes I think she did. Not only Kate Moss but also Heidi Klum, Ashley Tisdale, Lindsay Lohan have worn these that I know of! Steve Madden 'Banglez' is what they're called. Just google it and you'll see.

I tried on the Zara knock offs and they were even better in person! But I didn't get it. Just because I'm sure I'll hardly wear them.

Zara does a flat version but they have not landed in the stores as of yet. They are amazing.

The Zara ones are going for crazy amounts on ebay. A couple days ago I saw a pair (with several bids) sitting around $300 or so.

I just visited bebe.com and saw a preview of their Spring 2009 collection. There I found these:



The style is called "MARIANNA PLATFORM SANDAL" (#140224) and will be available in either black or white (sizes 5-10, only whole sizes) for $169. They aren't available online yet, but probably will hit the shelves in a few days.

Personally, I prefer Bebe's knockoffs b/c they are the closest to the Balmains.

On a side note: Bebe Spring 2009 is a collection full of knockoffs. They also copied Stella McCartney's mesh heels, the multi-buckled Louboutins and LV's Spring 2009 heels. I wrote about it in my blog if you're interested to see more Bebe knockoffs.

My thoughts exactly!!

The bebe ones have the chunk factor that the Zara ones lack, if I were in the market I'd go for the bebe over the Zara...plus it would save me that trip to the hobby store.
