Ivanka Trump is a copycat! At least that's what Derek Lam is saying.
The designer fired off a cease and desist letter to the Donald's daughter and her shoe licensee Marc Fisher Footwear demanding they remove their $150 "Cadie" wedge off the market because it's "virtually identical" to Lam's $780 Ayami" wedge sandal.
Derek Lam CEO Jan-Hendrik Schlottmann admits Ivanka probably has no idea her shoe was a copy since she works with a licensee, but they "had to protest this".
The designer's attorneys gave Trump seven days to pull the shoes and are also asking for info on past and future sales of the Cadie wedge, including accounting records of all sales.
What do U think? Is Ivanka's wedge (right) a copycat of Derek's (left)???

Howling Bells totally used Andy Warhol genius for their album…
And then OMG! Hot Chelle Rae totally used Andy's pop-art too!!!
So maybe Hot Chelle Rae copied Howling Bells? Or MAYBE they both copied Andy Warhol!
