And sometimes imitation is NOT a good idea!

You may have heard the recent news story where Madonna caused a controversy over in the UK by wearing Chanel’s “gun heels” to a red carpet event. Protesters in England argued that the shoes – with heels shaped like pistols – promoted violence. Well like it or not, Target seems to have gone ahead and copied the idea… using brass knuckles instead of a pistol for the heel part. First off, the concept was a bad one to begin with; I’m sure Chanel (and Madonna) were just going for “shock value”. And secondly, I can’t imagine Chanel being cool with their designs being knocked off!
