Miley’s Oscar Dress a Rip Off?

February 24, 2009 at 4:24 pm | Posted in Miley News, Pictures | 1 Comment

E! Online explored whether Miley Cyrus’ Oscar dress was a rip off of an iconic Dior gown from 1949 called the Junon. Fashion designer Nick Verroes: ‘You could argue that it isn’t [a ripoff], because the original gown is strapless. But I was surprised at just how similar the beading and shaping of the skirt was.
If it was just a train, or just the back..’

In the past, designers have sued each other, but only when one used an exact pattern or print copyrighted by another. Zuhair Murad, who created Miley’s gown, did not call out the similarities between Murad’s gown and the Junon.
A publicist for Murad said, ‘Zuhair is aware of the similarity of this gown. He is constantly inspired by Christian Dior, and this gown, in particular, re-creates the look of the Dior gown using today’s technology.’
