Golden Globe Knockoff Dresses Will Turn Heads -- And Not in a Good Way

angelina jolie's golden globe dressJanuary and February are exciting months for lovers of fashion. It's awards season! We have the Golden Globes, the People's Choice, the Oscars, and whatever other ceremony that gives actors gold trophies for being awesome that's escaping me right now. But, sadly, it's all about to come to an end, and the black lace Givenchy Kool-Aid we've been sipping will be snatched away with it.

So, naturally, people, namely dress-makers, are trying to stretch this moment in time out for as long as they possibly can -- and they're doing so by making God-awful knockoffs of the dresses donned by celebs.

Yesterday morning, the Today show featured a segment called "Red Carpet for Less," and in it, they showcased dresses from prom-dress maker Faviana, who, incidentally, is notorious for creating copycats of designer dresses (they have a section on their website called "Dress Like a Star"). Some of the dresses featured on the show? Angelina Jolie's Versace, Jessica Alba's lavender Gucci, and Charlize Theron's Dior. Yes, already.

Fact that these dresses already exist aside, who would want to wear these things? Is there really someone out there who wouldn't feel completely ridiculous showing up somewhere in an replica of Angelina Jolie's (heinous) gown? It's so ... distinct. It's so ... not meant for anywhere other than the red carpet. It's so ... not thinking for yourself.

Look, I like ogling celebs' clothing just as much as the next gal, but dressing like them -- exactly like them -- is where I draw the line. Not only is it kind of creepy, it would completely take the fun out of picking out a dress of my own.

Check out the segment on the Today show.

The knockoff dresses are also made from a much lower-quality fabric and are often quite ill-fitting. I would never wear one.

Who would want to be compared to these celebrities anyway. No offense to people, but I highly doubt there are very many people who would like to be compared to Charlize Theron in her authentic Dior.

I'll agree that the Angelina Jolie dress is maybe a little to iconic to wear without comparison, but the rest are really just fancy dresses that nobody will remember in a week. So I can see these dresses being worn at proms or fancy weddings or something with kinda a "fun factor". I don't think it's a "I can't think for myself" thing, I think it's more playful like that to wear a celebrity knockoff. Hopefully you're not claiming to be Angelina Jolie.
