I confess: I. Love. Gucci. Especially the magnificent spring 2010 collection, with its ikat-meets-robot dresses and accessories. Who else could mix tribal, bondage, and mod—and do it so successfully? Apparently Heidi Klum is a fan as well. Let’s not all hate her cause she’s beautiful (even after popping out her own tribe of kids) and in Gucci, OK?

I always say that the awesomeness of an article of clothing can be judged by how many talented stylists pull it for their clients to wear. If we go by my thought then the Dolce & Gabbana corset dress is something everyone should run out and buy. Was. Was something we should’ve bought. If you weren’t lucky enough to snag one last spring, it is unfortunately sold out, but read on…

GUESS by Marciano Carmella Corset Dress

For those of you that are subscribing to my above style tip, or perhaps you just love the dress, GUESS by Marciano has created their own version of it. The Carmella dress is slightly more form-fitting, but still features the decorative vertical seams. This detailing is supposed to mimic boning and is extremely figure flattering. Carmella is a ton more affordable and conveniently available now in either white or gold.

I haven’t been aware of fashion designer Isabel Marant for quite a long time, but ever since I saw Sienna Miller donning an awesome pair of killer stud booties by the French designer, I knew this had to change. The clothes she designs are really great, but her shoes are where it’s really at for me. Case in point: the chain-wrapped slouchy suede boots from her Spring 2009 collection which have been lusted after by fashion connoisseurs around the world.

For some reason celebrities haven’t picked up on these kickass boots yet. Miley Cyrus, not particularly known for her impeccable style, has been the only who rocked these suede boots on stage.

Jeffrey Campbel “Third” Suede Chain Boots

Jeffrey Campbell might not deserve a creativity award for his work since most of his styles are based on some other designer’s shoes, but I have to give kudos to him for being a great trendspotter. He picks up on trends when most high street retailers still replicate stuff from last season. These chain boots are an almost identical copy of the original Isabel Marant boots. They are not the cheapest at $244.95, but since the originals cost about $1300, they are still a great budget-friendly alternative.

OMG. That stands for Oh. My. GUCCI! And oh, the hotness…Daryl, will you marry me? I am sick for this platform from the Gucci S/S 2010 collection. I mean, what else can I say, other than I think I need a cold shower? And so will anyone in the vicinity of a broad in these bodacious bondage-like shoes. Meeeeeeowwww, mama!

bebe “Lily” Leather Cutout Sandals

So why don’t I already own the Gucci Daryl? There are 930 reasons why, namely 930 George Washingtons that aren’t staring back at me from my wallet. I tell you, writing for this site is really going to get me in trouble because…look at that, whaddya know…our trusty friends at Bebe have produced the “Lily” Leather Cutout Sandal, a near replica. That I must buy. And at $149, you’re probably thinking the same thing, too. Hurry though—I’m betting they won’t last long.

Alexander Wang is undoubtedly the master of grunge. His clothes are exquisitely designed but also have a downtown edge. Leave it to Wang to create a LBD that is equal parts East-Village and Red-Carpet. A nude under layer hints at skin without actually showing any and a sweetheart neckline adds… well, sweetness. I’ll tell you something that isn’t sweet though: the hefty price tag. Oh, and did I mention it’s also sold out? Boo-hoo!

Topshop Bandage Ruch Bandeau Dress

Topshop‘s “Bandage Ruch Bandeau Dress” might not be a dead-ringer for the Alexander Wang dress above, but it’s pretty darn close. I might even argue that it’s better. I’m really enjoying the thicker bands of fabric that are strategically placed over the hip and bust area. Of course we still have that hint of a sweetheart neckline and the mini-length and at $90 (!) this really is a steal. I predict this one will sell out fast.
