Looks Familiar?

A few years ago, Mary-Kate Olsen was featured on the cover of ELLE magazine wearing a thick black leather belt with cut-out detail by Azzedine Alaia. This season, the Olsen's twins more affordable line Elizabeth & James introduced a very similar version, the Odila leather and glossed-twill bell skirt. Hmm.. I guess there is a thin line between a copy an inspiration? Or maybe same difference?
