Giambattista Valli better have an umbrella handy for all the shade Christian Siriano is throwing his way. This morning, the 28-year-old Siriano posted the below Instagram photo of a dress from his own Spring 2010 collection, “one of [his] favorites from the archives!”
Upon first glance, the post just seems like a totally normal jaunt down memory lane—but I have a suspicion his motives weren’t so pure, and rightly so. At last night’s Emmys, Girls’ Lena Dunham wore a flouncy Giambattista Valli gown that looked eerily similar to the 2010 piece Siriano pointed out earlier today. I mean, just compare the two: same tiered organza, same color, same waistline. Imitation’s the sincerest form of flattery…right?
