Erin Wasson- Jewelry Thief?
From ONTD:

Quote:
We went to Gen Art last night and did some serious damage to our already weak wallets. On our way out, we approached a rack of chain jewelry, wine in hand and announced, "Wow, this looks just like Erin Wasson's."

We were impressed, just like we were when we first saw Erin's pieces, until the girl standing next to the rack, Bliss Lau, looked like she might cry. Apparently, allegedly, her work looks like Erin Wasson's because the model bought one of her necklaces, re-cast it and threw the copies over Alexander Wang's Fall 08 collection on that dirty Chelsea runway.

Pics and more: here

JSYK, Bliss Lau's pieces run from about $250-$450 while Erin Wasson's pieces will retail for around $1,200.

The original post for that is from fashionista.com not ONTD.

Erin's a well-known poseur though.. her style has always been a horrible hybrid of countless overexposed celebrities and I'm not surprised her newly found vocation is just as 'inspired' as her approach to fashion is.

This was all I found on Fashionista, but I'm sure if there was an earlier post it slaughtered her, and I kinda feel like she deserves that. I mean, this is pretty low.

Wow, I just read about this. I don't know, it seems pretty low of her to do that. What makes it so bad, at least to me, is the fact that she actually is wearing one of Lau's pieces in the Nylon pic while promoting her own line. That is just unbelievable that she thought no one would notice. She must really not give a damn, she's got some balls.

I'm reminded of that "I hate Erin Wasson" website now.
<---------Tina doesn't approve of this either. (She made her own jewelry.)

Wow that one piece she wore for Nylon is pretty much identical! Erin has been getting a lot of press lately too and I actually like her stuff but this is pretty damning...is Lau going to sue?
