Megan Fox always looks sexy, whether she’s wearing a pair of jeans and a t-shirt or a dress with a slit up to “there”. For this post we will be addressing the latter. Fox wore a Cavalli stunner to the Transformers 2 premiere in Berlin. It was a beautiful maroon, draped gown and had lovely jeweled detailing at the waist. Paired with that high slit and those 5 inch nude pumps, Megan looked like a million bucks.

ASOS Diamante Hoop Split Front Maxi Dress

It’s not often that a “steal” version comes along that I think surpasses the original, but in this case it’s true. There’s no denying that the Roberto Cavalli dress is a stunner (especially on Ms. Fox), but what real woman is going to feel comfortable wearing a dress with a slit that high? It’s just not practical! ASOS has yet again come to the rescue. I’m really feeling their “Diamante Hoop Split Front Maxi Dress”. The real-world-friendly version of the dress comes in the most delectable, rich colors and the slit isn’t quite as high! Hooray! Best of all the dress is quite modestly priced at less than $80.

I love me a hot pair of statement heels. Probably a bit too much since my shoe closet is full of impractical stilettos I rarely wear because I lack the ability to walk in them properly. Still it’s nice to know they’re there. I’d love to add these red patent slingback pumps by Christian Louboutin to my ever growing shoe collection. They are so sexy! So summery! So high! And so out of my budget!

I have a major girl crush on Zoe Saldana and regularly gush about her various red carpet looks there. The beautiful actress caught my attention last year when she did a promo tour for Star Trek. Her flaming red dress from up-and-coming designer Prabal Gurung which she wore at the Star Trek Germany Premiere in Berlin finally sealed her status on my red carpet favorites top list. I just absolutely loved her look!

ABS by Allen Schwartz Large Bow Cocktail Dress

Social Media is crazy sometimes. Today I was browsing eDressMe for their latest arrivals, knowing they regularly feature designer inspired clothes, and it hit me like a hammer when I saw this dress by Allen Schwartz dress which of course instantly reminded me of Zoe’s Prabal Gurung dress (I’m kind of obsessed with either of them). I then tweeted this to Prabal’s twitter account saying he’s apparently gotten so big he’s already being copied. It wasn’t until a few hours later when I saw several retweets including one by Prabal referring to an article on Fashionista.com where the topic of Prabal being copied by ABS had just started (coincidence? I doubt so). Anyway, back to the dress. While I think that being copied is a thing that sooner or later happens to all high fashion labels and is pretty much unavoidable – sometimes even welcomed by fashion followers without a celebrity budget – I clearly draw the line when rip-offs come with unjustified price tags. It’s outright shameless to charge $310 for a dress that is obviously the creative brainchild of someone else. The ridiculously high price also can’t be justified by the fabric used since the dress is 100% Polyester. No way I’d EVER pay that much for such a cheap replica. What do you guys think?

bebe “Trish” Satin Sandals

bebe did a good job on copying Zoe’s heels. I instantly recognized the inspiration behind these strappy satin sandals. They have a platform and also two straps less than the Emilio Pucci heels, but they still look a lot like Zoe’s heels. If you prefer a funkier version, the shoes come also in various other colors.
