Oh wow, good detective work. The first two dresses don't look very "original" to me! Very little alteration in design in those two. Lazy, lazy design team!

As much as I disliked Cavalli before....I think I dislike him more now. Why copy? Isnt he such a great designer that he cant come up with designs of his own? :s

They are strikingly similar..too similar for my tastes. I wonder if this will receive more coverage and attention?!?

Martin Margiela does this all the time. He's even so brazen as to write it on the label.

I think sometimes it's very hard to understand the difference between plagiarims and inspiration correctly, especially when we are talking about art. For me what Cavalli did is pure plagiarism, but some might call it inspiration, while I see nothing wrong with Galliano being inspired by fall Versus collection.

Here is one more example of inspiration (or plagiarism?). Gorgeous Givenchy couture dress once worn by Cate Blanchett and the dress from the movie Funny Faces (1957):

Funny Face's wardrobe was by Givenchy. It's auto-plagiarism, and if that was a crime Karl Lagerfeld would be in the dock every season.

Its sad but its been done so many times by so many designers. just take a look at the Outfit Look-alikes thread. It may be unprofessional but at the end of the day fashion is all about business and if copying 1930's dresses would get me at least a yatch like Cavalli, im on it! haha
