Inaugural Knock-Offs

EdressMe has already got an imitation of Michelle Obama's Inaugural gown available for pre-order (on left)! Costing $320, I wonder how many girls plan to wear this for prom. The site has seen a spike in sales of one-shoulder and strapless red dresses, the latter likely due to the red Reem Acra dress worn by VP wife Jill Biden.
ABS by Allen Schwartz, well-known for creating Oscar gown copies, is also planning on creating an Obama gown (on right), which will be in stores in March or April and will cost $300-$350. I like this version better, it seems to be more more detailed and more thought out for about the same amount of money. There will also be copies of the Toledo jacket, about $300, and sheath, $about $150, worn to the ceremony.
