The star stylist debuted her own clothing line during a press preview Wednesday, and one of her designs -- a mod black and white sequin shift -- is nearly identical to a dress Zoe, 39, used in a 2007 Teen Vogue shoot. The mag's fashion news director, Jane Keltner de Valle, attended the unveiling; hours later she tweeted a photo of the purported knock-off next to Teen Vogue's spread and begged the question: "Deja vu much?"

It turns out that the original garment is vintage and came from What Goes Around Comes Around, which is one of Zoe's favorite stores. She loved the dress so much that she bought it for herself after the magazine shoot and even sported it on an episode of The Rachel Zoe Project.
