The awards show red carpet circuit never fails to produce a few minor design dramas. Here's one: We've just spotted case of designer look-a-likes, via tFS Forum member Lefemmenikita.
Last week at the People's Choice Awards, actress Kat Dennings appeared on the red carpet wearing a strapless black ball gown printed with roses from the David Meister Signature collection. Just a few days later, Golden Globes co-host Tina Fey made her entrance at the awards show wearing a one-of-a-kind Carolina Herrera creation. Although small details distinguish the two gowns — Dennings' has a flattering ruched bodice, Fey's comes with a voluminous pleated overskirt — they are quite similar in terms of silhouette, color and concept.
In yesterday's issue of WWD, the trade published a profile on Herrera's creative process, noting that she and Fey developed the star's gown together, from sketches. Dennings' gown has been on sale for at least a season (it's currently available for $1,137 on NeimanMarcus.com, marked-down 65% from $3,250).
