Victoria Beckham vs. Topshop

Soon after her Spring 2012 presentation, Victoria Beckham was spotted wearing her navy and orange colour-block dress on the streets of New York City.

Almost the second it hit the virtual shelves of Net-A-Porter.com, the dress sold out – not surprisingly.

Topshop have been inspired to create a very similar dress. So much so that it even has the VB signature neckline to hemline zipper going down the back.

The VB dress would set you back $2,295, whereas the Topshop dress (sold on Topshop International) is only £49.

You just can’t beat the sleek designs and contouring shape of a VB dress.

    That dress isn’t Topshop, it’s sold by TS but from one of their concessions — Rare (rarefashion.co.uk).

    the VB original also has the navy colourblocking continue to the underside of the sleeve, a very sharp detail missing in the copy.

    Isn’t this fashion plagiarism? I wouldn’t wear either dress but I imagine VB’s fits better. Still, the VB dress is super expensive…a crime of a different sort. 😉

      I have wondered that about other designs that Topshop sells, but this happens so much, I dont think that there is much they can do about it.

    The VB dress is indeed very expensive, but the replica is very shameless. I hope she sues Topshop!

    Can they get away with such a blatant copy?

    They tried but Victoria’s tailoring is part of what makes this dress beautiful despite the steep price.
