Fashion: winners and losers @ "Of God and Men"


Fan Bing Bing, beautifully embroidered train from the back.

Doutzen Kroes, being a good spokesperson for Victoria's Secret

Hofit Golan, beautiful layered gown, flattering and interesting

Emmanuelle Beart, love the toughness, love the metallic belt

And now the few losers....what happened...

Lady Victoria Harvey, now we all know how old she is, she went to prom in the 80's...seriously, really? This looks like one of those dresses from the movie "27 dresses", ugly bridesmaid dress from the 80's coming back to haunt you...

I can see where this was going (inside the stylist's or her own head). I can see where the fashion was in this dress, nice sculptural curves and nice play on colors with the chiffon under layer. But, all those good things are lost because this dress doesn't fit. It gave her no waist, the ruffles didn't converge at her waist, the dress was way too long, the shoes were too heavy for this look. I'd hate for this to be an avoidable mistake by simply adjusting the straps to make it shorter thus pulling the whole dress upward and bringing back the right proportions.
