  4. Gah, I posted this in the Valentino bag forum, but will do so here in case different people read it:

    I've been trying to find this Valentino label elsewhere, but can't...would you say this is authentic? Is it just me or does the font look a bit different? Also, I can't find a yellow/gold label on any other Valentino items. Also, would you say that's Valentino red (the Valentino red shade, not the Red Valentino diffusion line)? If I'm wrong, please correct me. :smile:

  5. Does anyone know if this Herve Leger dress is authentic? Thanks!

  6. There are certain things that seem to be congruent with an authentic one but you will require more photos to be sure. Need photos of the back of the dress, care label and the closure (photo of the back of the dress taken inside out). With these types of photos we can check the other necessary characteristics. Someone more well versed may be able to give you a response with the posted pics but not me. Hopefully they will chime in. Be diligent, this dress is highly faked!
     
  7. Thank you soleilbrun! Unfortunately those were the only pics in the auction which has now ended. I didn't bid as I wasn't 100% sure of its authenticity, but I couldn't see any differences between this and authentic ones I found on google, so maybe I missed out? :sad:

    This dress appears to have double straps too, it's not very obvious but when I zoomed in on the pic on the right, there's a light pink strap hidden underneath the darker strap.
     
  8. Don't worry about missing out, it will show up again. Bebefuzz once mentioned she did see a fake one with double straps. It is one sign to determine authenticity but not the sole defining sign. Keep a look out on hervelegerobsessed.com. There are only authentic dresses and this one may pop up. Good luck!
     
  9. I hope so, it's such a pretty dress :love:

    I've just read this authentication guide on HLO, will look out of these signs next time I run into this dress, thanks again! :biggrin:

    Comments: V House for men is a Facebook store that sells all sorts of sample/defect designer items and claimed all their products to be guaranteed authentic. I have doubts on their claims, so it would be great if you guys could help affirm my suspicion. I would also like to have that Facebook store shut down so they can stop misleading the trusting customers!

  11. Hello,
    Is there a thread for identification of clothing? I would love to find the maker of a certain dress and if possible avoid starting a new thread. Thanks
