I don't normally watch her show because while I love Supermodels, she annoys the heck out of me - but that is just me. Anyway she did this show about how to spot a fake from a real and used the Cambon as an example - the problem I have is that while she didn't directly say anything about Chanel - the message I got from Tyra is that it is OK to buy the fake stuff since it is not illegal in the U.S. to do so. Ok - she is a fashion icon and has done a gazillion shows - pls tell me this woman has no clue? She said that some friend of hers gave her a Balenciaga and she had no idea it was a fake until her show when someone pointed out the tell tale signs of a real vs a fake - I mean that is rediculous!!! From someone who is supposed to be some sort of authority figure?? I thought models get these things for free anyway so what is up with celebs/models that are connected and they do stuff like this?? I mean there was a point where she was showing a real dress vs a knock off - the knock off was NOT a fake - it was a copy but did not have the designer label in it - so we all know that stuff happens - then she went and said she supports the store that sells this knock off because it happens to be one of the vendors her show uses when they do make overs!! I mean HELLO??? There is a huge difference b/w a fake and a trickle down similar style garmet sold at places that are discount chains - you know the places that have the 'inspired' looks. I just don't get it. Ok a lot of people can't afford the real thing so they buy similar items but they are not knock offs or fakes. I guess I can understand Karl when he is flattered by copies but doesn't care for people who steal or copy designs - now I am not sure if he was referring to the trickle down effect of runway inspired clothes or other reputable designers that come out with bags that look exactly like a Chanel. IMO I always thought the Marc Jacob's Stam screamed Chanel - but again that is me. Any thoughts?
