Did Jessica Simpson Rip Off Christian Louboutin? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Posted: Updated:

Did rumored billionaire Jessica Simpson get a little too much inspiration from Christian Louboutin?

Pregnant Jess, who's herself hung up the stilettos, might soon be in some hot water over a pair of her brand's heels. The blog Cellar Paper noticed that a pair of towering strappy sandals named Evangel from Jessica Simpson's sprawling shoe line bear a surprising resemblance to Christian Louboutin's Staratata heels.

Simpson herself wears the shoes in an ad tucked into the new issue of Elle. Jessica's pink sandals retail for $98, while the red-soled version will cost you $995.

These hot heels are the latest in a series of fashion copycat skirmishes, including knockoff Michael Kors and Victoria Beckham dresses, Taylor Tomasi Hill's alleged Marc Jacobs ripoff and of course, that other famous copycat shoe case: Ivanka Trump's supposed lifting of Derek Lam sandal designs.

We've contacted Jessica Simpson's reps for comment and will update when we hear back.

Check out the suspicious shoes below and weigh in: do you think Jess is guilty of a fashion crime?
