No, we aren’t really doing a feature on some out of work Vegas showgirls.

In fact, if you still didnt recognize the ladies above, they are, Serena & Venus Williams and Jelena Jankovic! The ladies can kick your ass on the tennis court, but wearing a sari is definitely not their forte and we don’t expect it to be!

But, for the sponsors to dress them up in cheap velvet blouses and the lowest end quality of mysore silk is just sad! Tsk Tsk.

For next time, we hope they take some hints from Anna Kournikova below and make some demands before slipping into such shoddy stuff!

Am I Seeing Double?

Nalandda Bhandari Spring Summer 2008

Marchesa Spring Summer 2008

While the Marchesa and the Nalandda Bhandari are absolutely identical, right from the opening at the neckline, the sleeves, the work on the hemline etc, look how similar the Dior and Surily Goel are. Barring the belt on Surily gown, the straps, the detail at the bust, the puffed hemline/ ruching are quite similar…

Spotted one that is identical. Spotted one that is similar. Its quite hard to miss!

Plagiarism, copyright infringement and downright copying have been plaguing the fashion industry for a while now, perhaps because it is so hard to define the rightful intellectual property and there is such a thin line between plagiarism and “inspiration”! There have been way too many incidents, all you need to do is run a google search and you’ll see, but then, neither do I see an easy solution to this!

I love these designers but its hard to ignore plagiarism and not feel just a tad let down!!

If a picture is worth thousand words, why do I need to say more?

High Heel Mommies!

A little thing like being pregnant doesn’t stop these hot mums from stepping out istyle in platform heels! What about you? Do you mostly choose comfort over style?

Who Wore Dolce And Gabbana Better?

Petra with her natural color or Gauri with her overdone tan! (Do we sound a little biased already?) 😉

If you think you can pull this outfit off, it can be yours through Bergdorf Goodman. That is if you have $5995 to spare!

Buy via Bergdorf Goodman
