Imitation is said to be the sincerest form of flattery. So why isn't Aquazzura happy that Ivanka Trump allegedly copied its Wild Thing shoes? The Italian shoe designer is suing the daughter of the Donald, and her licensing company Marc Fisher, for knocking off a popular sandal that it claims to have made famous.
Ivanka's shoe is called the Hettie and her licensing company denies that it's an imitation of Aquazzura's slipper. But the Italian shoemaker says that Ivanka's forever flattering them with imitation, and this is not the first time she has been inspired by their signature styles.
