Coleen Rooney For Littlewoods: Fashion Familiar

Up until now we have been pleasantly surprised by Coleen Rooney’s turn at “designing” clothes for Littlewoods. She put out a number of cute pieces that appeared to be original and that we would actually like to own.
Fair is fair, though, and we must call her out just as we did with Alex’s collection of knock-offs. The Coleen-designed dress above is very similar to this Tibi watercolor silk dress from the line’s Spring 2010 collection – right down to the open back and watercolor description.
However, the rest of her new collection contains some really fab original things and we are big fans of the Superhero-like styling in her print campaign.
Tell us – does the obviously knocked-off dress sour your opinion on Coleen’s design credentials or did you just not award her any to begin with?
