the Hole Thing

A couple of weeks ago Viktor & Rolf showed their Spring 2010 collection, allowing fashion critics and bloggers world wide to rejoice at finally get to mention Edward Scissorhands in a review. I rather loved it, despite the flack they took for taking things completely over the top (isn't that what runway is for?) and blogged about it HERE. Quite honestly I never expected to see any of those dresses again, so was pleasantly surprised to see on GO FUG YOURSELF that one of those magnificent, mind blowing tulle confections was actually worn in public by a a celebrity....though not surprised that it was KATY PERRY, seen at the MTV Europe Awards. Which I missed, because A) I live in the US and B) MTV is utterly irrelevant. Anyhoo.....

Strange that I like the runway model's make up better. Next time go for a mini with the ta's gnawed off, Katy!

DEFINITELY like the models whole look better - it works. Looks like an attack of giant clothes moths on a deranged southern belle on Katy. I don't think I could pull it off though, either!

I know its not unusual for the runway models to look better since they're styled by the designer, but I'd expect better from Katy. Its like she forgot she needed to balance the crazy of the dress with some crazy up top! A big hat, severe hair, certainly not that borderline gothy make up. Just a weak presentation. And I couldn't pull it off either but I'm not trying to!

I like your blog a lot! I've been mostly buying vintage lately, and now I am spoiled: I hate going to stores and thinking how many more people own this same dress?!?!?!
Let me know if you'd like to exchange links!

what a funny looking dress! Looks like Elmo took a big bite out of her dress!

Maybe not so much Elmo who took a big bite, but maybe the Cookie Monster?

The quirky fashion loving side of me (self confessed Moschino Addict right here thank you) really likes this for a few reasons, but at the same time I'm not entirely sure... I think it's Katy that makes it sort of guh for me. The half-baked makeup attempt ruins what in theory could be a fabulous, quirky statement outfit.
