Jessica Simpson may be stiletto high in hot water for a close case of copy-catting.
The expectant mom is being brought to court for allegedly ripping off Christian Louboutin’s shoe design. No, this isn’t another war of the red sole like the one Louboutin was in court with YSL with, but is a war of an entire shoe design and color way.
The eerie similarities between the two shoes was first pointed out in a blog post by a very observant Elle reader who spotted Jessica wearing the Evangel shoes in question in her latest ad.
The shoe bared a resemblance to the Christian Louboutin’s Staratata heels that the designer released back in 2010.
Both shoes boast a colorblocked black and blue sole with a strappy yellow trimmed pink and yellow shoe.
Jessica’s pink sandals retail for $98, while the red-soled version runs for around $995.
One thing is for sure, the heavily pregnant Jessica Simpson won’t be physically making it to the courts as she is set to deliver a baby girl any day.
What do you think of the shoe controversy? Excusable slip up, or intentional copy-cat?
