Almost every knock-off we see from Forever 21 raises the original from the dead and into a plastic-y patent leather evil twin - why does everything they make have to be shiny? - and this Chanel rip-off is no exception. The criss-crossing straps along the front make a decent imitation but the buckles are lacking the Chanel's extra oomph, plus the heel kind of looks like the Chanel's frumpy cousin. And of course, the patent 'leather' completely changes the sophisticated tone of the original. Nine West managed to do a bit better with the look. They, too, offer a version in black patent but also turned out a few suede versions in different colors. Like F21, Nine West opted for a shorter heel without the detail (we guess they drew the line at quilting), but with less criss-crossing straps and forgettable buckles. We bet Karl's pouring some Bacardi in that Diet Coke right about now... --HAYLEY PHELAN
