Real vs. Steal – Yves Saint Laurent Satin Bustier Dress

by Irina on May 7, 2009

This little black dress by Yves Saint Laurent from the Spring 2008 collection is a classic LBD and every woman should have at least one in her closet because it is a versatile basic you can wear very often. Shelling out about $2.7k for a rather simple dress however is pretty off-putting, isn’t it?

Celebrities Love Yves Saint Laurent

The YSL dress has been a coveted piece among the rich and famous, too. It has been worn by celebrities countless times, Kristin Scott Thomas liked the dress so much, she wore it twice.

bebe Bustier Flounce Dress

bebe is king when it comes to designer look-a-likes lately. This strapless v-cut pencil dress is a great alternative to the pricey YSL original. It’s a bit shorter than the Yves Saint Laurent dress and has an asymmetric draped detail which falls to the side of the skirt, but other than that both dresses look pretty much a-like.

    I really like it on Becki Newton! It looks so vibrant. I also like how Gwyneth Paltrow and Rihanna accessorized it.
