We're actually surprised it didn't happen sooner. Herve Leger rip-offs, that is. H&M should have launched bandage dresses over a year ago, once Lindsay, Posh and every other red carpet regular decided it was time to revive the BCBG owned brand. But instead, we walked past an Express window yesterday packed with short, neon, skintight dresses that are more than just an homage to the designer who now goes by the Karl Lagerfeld sanctioned name, Leroux. The only piece available online is black, which is probably the only color that works for a band-aid tight dress on a normal body. It's similar to Leger's most basic designs, including the one on the left worn by Jemima Khan last year. So stop by Express if you need to attend a red carpet event, want to blend in, and won't spend $1500 on a dress that you can only wear post lemonade diet.

Inside the World of Herve Leger's Ultimate Fangirls
You’ll find them at every Herve Leger fashion week show: The fangirls (fan-women?) dressed to the nines in the house’s signature bandage dresses, sky high stilettos, cleavage up to their necks, big blowouts, and a full face of makeup. If the house that Max Azria built was spiritual, the Herve Leger show at Lincoln Center would be the ultimate pilgrimage. So who are these women who are neither editors nor buyers, stylists nor celebrities? They're the brand's most die-hard customers and they scoop up Herver Leger bandage dresses like they're just another venti soy latte from Starbucks.
