Reader Emily sent in this latest design double-take, and we can't get over how close the copy is. The original wrap dress is navy blue and by Diane von Furstenberg. The copy is Pepto pink and by Calvin Klein. Other than some minute changes here and there (length of the bow, shirring at the sleeve hems, size of neck ruffles) the "inspiration" is way too direct to call coincidence. The real kicker? The copy's even called the "Wrap Front Dress". Calvin's selling his for $128, which definitely puts it in the general price point of a DVF wrap dress - we would tell you the price of this particular one by Diane, but it's already sold out on Nordstrom. Glad some people know the difference.
