This look is most definitely a head-turner. The asymmetry at the base of the dress channels Dries Van Noten (Fall 2005)and works very well with the edgy boots and groovy “do-you-make-house-calls?” bag. Gray on black is such a nice subtle dip from the palette. It would be a shame if our muse is wearing contacts. A dark pair of frames would complete this come-hither look.
I love it when a person can carry off a complicated look like this – the volume, the assymetric jacket and the “shapeless” skirt.. guess she has some Comme des Garcons, Margiela and Tao in her wardrobe..
I think the neckline of whatever she’s wearing under that cardi is all wrong – a better one could really make it work. Maybe the dress shape isn’t quite right for it either. When you’re wearing one outrageous thing like this cardi, you need to make sure everything else is an accessory to it, so that the item just looks great.
Different is cool, a mess is not so cool. It can sometimes be a fine line…
