Copycats

It’s better to fail in orginality, than to succeed in imitation. Stealing someone’s creativity is a wrongful act in the Netherlands. I’m writing my bachelor thesis about Copyright Law and that was my inspiration for this blog. We’ve all been copied by someone. Think about that friend who stole your fashion style or that person who stole your ideas or creativity for a project. It’s really annoying isn’t it? But you can see it as something flattering, because you’re someone’s inspiration. Still, it’s a good thing that copyright law excists to put a stop on copycats. Did you know that LancĂ´me has copyright on the scent of their perfume?

Even celebs cope with copycats. Although it’s not crime to wear the same clothes, I can understand that you can be really pissed if someone else is wearing your uber expensive unique Lanvin dress on the red carpet. I’ve collected some serious copycat material:

The beautiful latinas Jennifer Lopez and Eva Longoria both wearing a black leather dress and black pumps. They both look beautiful, but if I have to choose, I think it looks better on Eva than on J.LO!

ImageJada Pinkett Smith and Kim Kardashian wearing the same saucy white dress.

ImageLauren Conrad and Fast and the Furious actress Jordana Brewster are wearing the same floral embelished romper. So did LC, it are both different rompers, but frome the same line. It looks good on both of them!

So, who do you think looks better in these outfits? And have you ever been copied?
