Michelle Obama Wears A Knockoff DVF Dress For Halloween: What's Your Call?

Michelle Obama wore a super-cute dress from ASOS to pass out Halloween treats at the White House on Saturday. Problem number one with said super-cute dress? The asymmetric striped shift is a little too similar to the Savannah Striped dress from Diane Von Furstenberg's fall 2011 collection. Problem number two? The designer has been very vocal about both copyright issues and Mrs. O's ensemble choices — she lobbied on Capitol Hill to protect designers from fast-fashion knockoffs and aired her grievances after the first lady wore a gown by British designer Alexander McQueen to a state dinner with China.
We want to know what you think: Should Michelle Obama get a pass for picking up a fast-fashion dress (something most of us do fairly often, right?)? Or should she make a stand for designers and steer clear of knockoffs? Sound off in the comments!
