Taylor Tomasi Hill Rips Off A Marc Jacobs Dress For Her New Lane Crawford Collection? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Taylor Tomasi Hill, the red-headed Moda Operandi exec and street style star, just launched a capsule collection in collaboration with Asian department store Lane Crawford. But there's bad news: she's already coming under fire for the suspicious design of one of the pieces. (That was quick.)

The dress in question is a navy blue strapless tuxedo dress, which Lane Crawford is selling for $470.

So what's the problem? Well, Elle.com noticed that the frock keenly resembles a similar dress from Marc Jacobs' spring 2008 ready-to-wear collection.

And in fact, the dresses do look pretty similar: both have a tuft of lace at the top of the asymmetrical neckline, as well as the vertical seaming on the front. Uh oh.

Lane Crawford's website states that the line was "inspired by staple pieces in Taylor's personal wardrobe," so maybe it's more of an homage. Either way, maybe Tomasi Hill should schedule a meeting with Ivanka Trump, who knows a thing or two about fashion copyright suits, ASAP.

Read more from the original sleuths at Elle.com and tell us: do you think the pieces are too alike? Also, see some other pieces from Tomasi Hill's Lane Crawford collection in the slideshow.
