Have y’all noticed that since YSL was resurrected by the brilliant Tom Ford about a decade ago, it has been on a roll ever since? While it’s true that Tom Ford reintroduced the brand before he sadly disappeared from women’s fashion, I must admit that Stefano Pilati has proved himself a worthy replacement. One need only look at the Yves Saint Laurent Tribute Pumps (and other YSL Tribs) to know it is indeed true.

Pour La Victoire “Portia” Platform Pumps

UPDATE (11/08/2011): And here’s an almost 1:1 identical twin version of the YSL Tribute pump coming from Pour La Victoire. Too bad this one’s a little pricey at $285! Available in black, charcoal and tan patent as well as plum, tan and black suede and teal and burgundy snakeskin.

Steve Madden “SURPASS” Platform Pumps

YSL is definitely the stuff my fashion fantasies are made of. But ouchie… the price tag for any YSL shoes brings me back to reality pretty darn quick. But what’s that I see? A near-perfect replica?! Yes! The “SURPASS” Platform Pumps by Steve Madden are gleaming, virtual twins of the YSL Tribute, are they not? Available for pre-order. Now back to that fantasy…
