For this edition of Adventures in Copyright, a reader tipped us off to another one of those copies that just doesn't make sense at all. Guess by Marciano, the contemporary, "fashion-forward" extension of Guess, Inc., made the "Blair Vintage Dress," (right) whose description reads, "With embellishments inspired by our favorite styles of eras past, this vintage-inspired dress is a classic reinvented." By "eras past," they must mean a couple of years ago, when Rodarte made this exact same dress for Target (left). Maybe Guess thought they could get away with it since the Rodarte for Target version was in stores a couple of years ago, but thanks to the recent Go International re-release, the very same dress is not only still available--it's on sale for $15.74. The Guess by Marciano dress is $168.
