Real vs. Steal – Hervé Léger Strap-Yoke Mini Dress

by Irina on May 25, 2011

I’m so glad the Hervé Léger overexposure has stopped. There was a time when I was just sick and tired of seeing all those bodycon bandage dresses on every red carpet. The HL revival wave started somewhen in 2007 and while my taste in fashion has changed a lot since then, I’m still smitten with the more classic designs from this fashion house.

Now this really puzzled me at first. Because normally bebe sexes up all of their knockoffs whereas here they rather toned this naturally very sexy dress down which I so prefer over the original. bebe’s dress is considerably longer and the cleavage looks a lot more demure, too. Good job on this one, bebe! A sexy yet classy LBD. And quite affordable if I might add.

  • Normally the phrase “the cleavage looks a lot more demure”, would be enough to send me running for the hills, but I must agree this version by bebe is better. That said, anyone know the name of the model in the original Herve Leger above? YOWZERS

  • I actually like Hervé Léger version better but, of course — I like the way the triangle straps are cut and the length. But, of course, the bebe version is much more affordable and is still very good looking.

    I would probably have the bebe version hemmed. It is a bit too long, especially since the cleavage is considerably covered (for bebe’s standards).
