On the one hand, sure, when ABS rips off your designs you're officially a big time, red carpet-destined, Rachel Zoe-championed designer. On the other hand, Prabal Gurung probably enjoys that success so much more when it comes in the form of dressing Oprah. ABS, which we're pretty sure only re-makes designs stolen from other designers, has re-manufactured Prabal's red one-shouldered bow dress from his first collection, which debuted exactly one year ago for AW09. They've taken the seams, the waist, the layered shoulder detail, left off the detailed hem and left out the quality fabric. And they still have the balls to charge $310.
