The Balmain military jacket as worn by Beyonce Knowles would have set you back $11,410.
Thanks to Alice + Olivia, you can purchase their shrunken military jacket with embellished details on the front and shoulders for a small fraction of the price at $550.
It’s still quite expensive for some, but that’s no doubt due to the crystals, pearls and beaded details.
Alice + Olivia also seemed to be inspired by Balmain’s Fall 2008 zebra print blazer as worn by Kim Kardashian.
It has the same print and embellished lapels, but at a fraction of the cost.
This blazer is available from Nordstorm for $495.
Unlike Bebe’s attempts to knock-off Balmain, these are much more acceptable.
