Great Minds Think Alike #21

Burberry vs. Balmain Mini Dress

It's not the hemlines of Kate Hudson's gorgeous emerald Burberry mini dress (that she wore to yesterday's Burberry Fall Winter 2010 Women's show in London) that catches my attention. Nor its' red carpet worthy glittery material or how gorgeous it looked on Kate.

It is the immediate recollection back to a Spring Summer 2009 Balmain mini dress in a similar emerald shade with all its bling and sparkle. Great minds sometimes do think alike, most likely unconsciously. Nonetheless, one's more demure, the other's more unabashedly 'trashy' but gorgeous.

What do you guys think?

Me parece increíble, primero copian con descaro a Jean Paul Gaultier o a V&R, pero esto. Es muy fuerte!

Well, I can't understand what Hector said, but I think this is an easy choice. I don't think body size would change much about the silhouette of the Burberry Emerald mini, but the Balmain interpretation is exquisite - hip, today, fashion-forward and interesting. The Burberry piece has strange, unflattering seams, don't you think?
