Fashion News Roundup: Jessica Simpson Knocks Off Christian Louboutin, the Real Reason Prom Got So Slutty, and the Cigarette that Caused the Fire at Macy's

Jessica Simpson's Shoes Look a Lot Like Louboutins: Jessica Simspon better watch her (already extremely strained) back. The singer turned mainstream fashion mogul has been accused of knocking off one of Christian Louboutin's shoe designs. We'd be hard-pressed to say that the J.Simps' shoes don't look the spitting image of Loub's (those are hers on the right, CL's on the left), but at least they don't feature those red soles that landed YSL in the messiest (and never-ending) fashion suit of the year. {NY Mag} So How Did Prom Get So Slutty? No, we don't mean what happens after the dance... we're talking dresses. From poofy tulle creations to Jersey Shore bling, here's an in-depth look at what really caused the Real Housewife-ication of high school proms. It all started in 2005... {BuzzFeed Shift} So-Last-Season Style: Does your style have an expiration date? One girl defends her undying love for those glittery Miu Miu pumps that had already been shunned by most of the fash pack before they even made it to market. {Refinery29} Harpers Bazaar's Zoe Bruns Going to J.Crew: Looks like J.Crew's crew is growing! Zoe Bruns has left her position as photography and bookings director at Harper's Bazaar to become the new vice president of brand design at J.Crew. {WWD}

Before You Do Your Spring Closet Cleaning... Donating your old clothes to charity is a good deed and an amazing feeling-- but sometimes, you find yourself looking back, realllly wishing you still had those perfect-fitting flares (you know, the ones you thought would never come back in style?). Before you donate your duds, read this list of what to keep and what to give. {SheFinds}

A Cigarette Set Macy's on Fire: Not only is smoking bad for your health, it's also harmful to retail! Word is that Wednesday's fire at Macy's Herald Square flagship was caused by a burning cigarette that fell through the sidewalk into the basement. Sounds like an unlucky strike if ever there was. {NY Mag}

Get Titanic Style: Wondering what to wear to see Titanic 3D? Of course you are! Get inspired by this round-up of the film's best looks-- But probably steer clear of those massive hats so favored by Rose and the rest, unless you're looking to start some Regal Cinema rumble with the people sitting behind you. Just sayin'! {FabSugar}
