Today in potential knockoffs, we have the two green maxi dresses above. The one on the left can be ordered off Lulu's for a moderate $51, but despite the "Just Ours" sticker in the corner, it looks a whole lot like the other green maxi dress on the right, no?
That one's from the New York City-based brand Contrarian, and it retails for a much pricier $425. The only differences between the two are the material (chiffon vs. silk), and the way that the straps in the back (Lulu's crisscross.) Just a coincidence, or a case of the blatant copycats? You be the judge.
