Dress Déja Vu

When I saw Kat Graham wearing this cobalt blue gown, I went back to my archives, thinking it was the same one Jessica Alba wore 10 months ago. But it isn't the same dress, just a serious case of copycat couture.

Left: Jessica Alba looked regal in this electric blue silk strapless gown with sweetheart neckline, empire waist and gathered maxi skirt. The gown, which is by Atelier Versace, was worn by Jessica on 13 February 2011 to the BAFTA Awards. She wore her hair up in a braided hairstyle, and added a gold, turquoise and blue necklace.
Right: Kat Graham wore a very similar gown last week (10 December 2011) at the 'Ripple Effect Charity Dinner'. Her blue micropleated silk dress is by couturier Lloyd Klein. It is also strapless, same shade of striking blue, with an empire waist and flowing floor-length skirt. The only major difference is the bandeau neckline and empire style. Kat wore her hair in voluminous waves.

I prefer Jessica's dress and styling. Do you think this is a blatant copy or just a coincidence?

gorgeous on both of them, but I agree with you! Jessica looks great with her hair pulled back to show off the necklace and bodice!

That blue color is oh so gorgeous. I have to say that I'm a bigger fan of Jessica's dress. I love the bustline!

There are so many things that look just alike in fashion and I guess I don't care if they are similar. I also prefer Jessica's dress and styling :)

I think it is just coincidence, and I agree Jessica's look is all around better including the dress.

Purvi said...

I also think Jessica look much better :) and I think that now a days there are some designs and colors and styles which are used by various designers simultaneously and hence they look similar simply because they are classic :)

I liked Jessica's dress very much (and the necklace too!), but I loved the color and belt/waistline of Kat Graham's dress... but the color, maybe it was the light, that often changes color in pictures... I don't know... maybe just a coincidence? It would be so shameless to copy!

Kate said...

beautiful blue!

Elle Sees said...

usually a copy...isn't everything? a knock off?

Alina said...

Jessica looks absolutely gorgeous!

Mandy@OrangeAutumn said...

They both look gorgeous! Love the color of the dress, very similar though. Hopefully not a copy!

Punctuation Mark said...

they are such a classic style that it could be a coincidence... i love the color!

Alexandra said...

I'm absolutely loving Jessica's, not as crazy about Kat's. The neckline and the way Jessica styled herself is so much more classy and edgy at the same time.

The dress is beautiful but I love Kat's version of the outfit. The color works with her and the dress flows nicely

Filipa said...

you are missing the cold weather? please dont say that, i would give anything for a sunny day... the winter is really cold here in Portugal, especially in the north :x

Elvira said...

I love them both, but you're right, Jessica's one is regal!!

Sam said...

Hi All - I've been reading all your comments & the consensus is that these two dresses being so similar is just a coincidence.

Hi Filipa - I am missing winter, this summer heat has been unbearable.

BROKEN.WHIMSY said...

Aaaaah I can most definately see why you would confuse the two! Both are very pretty and theres actually not as much silhouettes designers can construct too than you would imagine for awards' seasons. The colour however is gorgeous!

i like both of them, both the dresses are beautiful, copies with a twist maybe:)
i love the floor toughing length of kat's and her wavy black hair! jessica alba looks stunning in her dress and hairdo! xx

hope in high heels said...

hmmm... I think they call it "inspired by". Jessica's dress and styling is the standout for me (then again, she rarely puts a foot wrong!)

I prefer Jessica's style as well... Thanks for your sweet comments!

rolala said...

There seems to alot of "similar styles" in fashion so who knows. I think Jessica carried it off more elegantly while Kat went for a fresher more relaxed approach. Thanks for dropping by my page! I'll be back to visit you again :)

what a dress!!

Marianne M. said...

i think that jessica looks elegant and majestic with her gown, she has an ancient greek goddess feeling on her with that dress. kat looks lovely and i like her hair but the piece of necklace she is wearing doesn't add anything to her dress, more takes off the fab effect of it.
