Trying To Keep Up With The Kardashians

As you may have heard, the Kardashian Klan’s Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe have launched a clothing line with Bebe.  The Kardashian for Bebe line was introduced at the 2010 New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. However the line has been under fire for being “knock-offs” of other designers work.  You be the judge for yourself. Kim in their defense mentions on her blog that almost every piece of clothing in mall stores is actually inspired by runway fashions yet, are meant to be affordable for everyday people.  Nevertheless, it seems to me that the Kardashian Klan just wants to design clothing that looks like the frocks they’ve worn before.  Browsing through the different looks on Bebe’s website gave me flashbacks to episodes of Keeping Up with the Kardashians and/or pictures of them at red carpet events.  One of the pieces in question of being a “knock-off” is a grey knit hooded dress with a leather-looking corset on the upper portion of the dress.

Fashion critics are saying that the dress is far too similar to a Fendi dress from the fall 2009 collection.  The question that also comes to mind is why are the Kardashians trying to jump on the celebrity bandwagon of wannabe designers? I know that our celebrity culture allows celebs to just tag their name/”brand” onto products and call them their own, but honestly are these girls actual designers that sketch, cut and sew? Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe already have their own weight loss aid with GNC and their clothing store D-A-S-H boutiques in Miami and Calabasas.  Kim also has a new fragrance being sold at Sephora and recently filmed a commercial for Carl’s Jr (maybe that’s where she got her famous buns), multiple magazine photo shoots, and who knows what else the Kardashian bootylicious babes have up their sleeves.  I guess the family is following the Ryan Seacrest model and are trying to see how many jobs they can hold at one time, especially since he is a producer behind their hit television show. Stay tuned to see how the Kardashian legal woes unfold. Let us know what you think, are you a friend or foe of the Kardashian line sold at Bebe? Knock off or NOT? Comment below…
