Natalie: I can't believe all this news about ABS knocking off the Jason Wu dress. I mean who would wear that knock-off? It's so recognizable anyone on the planet would be like, "Dude, you're wearing Michelle Obama's dress." Britt: But that's what they do. All they do is knock off famous dresses. Natalie: But I feel like it's different this time. Everyone knows this dress. Britt: But everyone knew Gwyneth's pink Ralph Oscar dress. Natalie: But this is different! You don't have to follow fashion to know this dress. Britt: I promise you people will buy it. It will sell out in minutes. Natalie: God, I would love to meet these people, I have so many questions for them. Britt: No you wouldn't. Natalie: It would be so embarrassing! I would never be able to get it out of my head, "I'm wearing a wannabe First Lady ballgown." Britt: Well if you see anybody in it, you should tell them they could've bought it at Jessica McClintock five years ago. Natalie: It's not even pretty. Britt: I know, I know.
