Rodarte vs. Bebe

Some things you just don’t try to recreate.

A Michael Jackson classic hit is a perfect example. My second example would’ve been a Rodarte dress, but Bebe have created this silk shred party dress which bears a striking resemblance to a dress from the Rodarte Spring 2009 collection.

They both have a mesh bodice, bands of silk wrapped around the bodice, and a chiffon two-tone skirt.

As always the difference is the price. The Bebe dress cost $229, whereas the Rodarte dress would probably set you back about five figures.

    that is a pretty good resemblance. the price is pretty good aswell.

    i was actually thinking of getting a dress made to resemble one of the rodarte ones.

    I’d be embarrassed to wear this. It’s an obvious rip-off, and a bad one at that.
