Safe to say that Jessica Simpson won't be receiving a Christmas card this year from French footwear designer Christian Louboutin. Because her new platform sandal "Evangel" looks very similar to Louboutin's platform sandal "Statarata."
From the Daily Mail:
Christian Louboutin designed the 'Statarata' in 2010, because clothing and accessories are not protected by copyright law in the US, the company will not be able to take action regardless of their views on Ms Simpson's shoe.
Budget-conscious fashionistas however will no doubt be flocking to the shops to snatch up a pair of the affordable platforms. The 'Evangel' carry a fairly priced tag of $98 while the slightly daintier 'Staratata' set buyers back a whopping $995.
