Inspiration or Rip off??

Dresses. Yesh, we love dresses and by "we" I mean "me". XD

Serenity. Yesh, Serenity wears a kick a$$ dress. It was in style then, it is in style now. SO COOL.

A few months ago I posted a photo that I took with my cellphone of an ad in a magazine. It was a wedding dress that was REALLY REALLY close to the one Mrs. Takeuchi drew in the manga, remember?

Well, I decided to check out the website of the wedding gown company, just to see if I could find a picture of the dress in higher resolution.

This is what I found:








Ok... this is scary. The resemblance CANNOT be coincidental, I mean, look at the back! The shape of the hanging fabric is EXACTLY THE SAME as Usagi's!!!

What do you guys think?Is it a mere coincidence?? Was the designer INSPIRED by Serenity or is it a blatant rip off?? Whatever the case, I will be taking two of those, please, one for cosplaying and the other will be for my actual wedding XD!
