What in the name of all that is holy are these fashion designers smoking. The notion that some woman wants to wear a dress- in color- splashed with the face of Steve Buscemi all across it larger than life is not only baffling, but, somehow leaves a rather bad taste in the mouth. Let us be honest, though, this is hardly the worst monstrosity to come out of the fashion industry over the last decade or more. After all, there are so many people who seem to design things that make one look more like they walked off the set of Doctor Who circa 1970 rather than out of real life.
What is more, while Buscemi is a decent actor, he is not exactly the prettiest face in the world.
One has to wonder just why this designer would choose to put Buscemi’s face on a dress that, well, gets to go over some of the most attractive parts of a woman’s body…namely all of it. Ugh, and this is what people think should be worn?
I live here in Vermont, give me practical. While I may love wearing skirts and dresses, I’m happier with simple colors (preferably purple), rugged, keeps me warm in winter, cool in summer, and won’t get caught on things. Furthermore, I’d rather not have to try and slink into a dress like that. Vermonters want practical. In fact, most women want practical. They don’t want dresses that are designed to make splashes like this, or cause a stir. For that matter, one has to wonder just what kind of woman or man would go for a woman wearing the face of a man across her body?
Let us just go ahead and say that the creator of this dress should just start discounting it right now, and prepare to do what he needs to in order to destroy them.
However, the model is lovely to look at, if she’s your ‘type’.
