On the Street…. UPDATE Leopard Dress, New York

Amelie of Brussels sent me this photo of the leopard dress from the Moschino show. My first Runway-to-Reality editorial! I actually like the sleeve detail in the production piece than the runway version.

Thanks Amelie

    the dress is great but I’m sorry to say that the shoes & the handbag are not given her the perfect look.

    perfect! the sleeve length, the waistline, the collar, the small details… this shows that women can benefit from good tailoring as well as men.

    i love the red shoes… even more, i love that she thought to use the red bow detail, along the waist, to tie the shoes into the outfit.

    leopard print – easily vulgar – can be worn well, even splendidly, used for a prim and proper design, like this dress. the red accents (there seems to be a very small red sash around the waist) brings the whole thing to perfection. a big loud yes to this ensemble.

    I don’t like leopard print, but the cut of this dress is beautiful. And the shoes are excellent (i have them in black!).

    Wish that I could see her head. Does she have an accessory that complements the outfit? We’ll never know.

    I always find it hard to convince younger girls that it’s possible to wear animal prints without looking trampy. This is the perfect example.

    Leopard print can be so chic when it’s done right! This is miles away from the trashy feel some people associate with it. An the shoes are perfect.

    So cute. The dress is by Moschino, S/S 2005 I believe.

    I was in a hurry this morning so i didn’t get to comment on why I liked this dress.

    Many of you have already stolen my thunder. I’m not usually a big fan of animal prints but the cut of this is so proper that is gives the print a refinement and sophistication.

    To me is is all in the sleeve

    The dress has a lovely shape. I usually find leopard print incredibly tacky but it looks nice here. I like how the shoes match the sash on the waist. Cute cute.

    The dress is by Moschino Cheap and Chic. It’s pricey, about $700.

    I love the dress, I love the fit, I love the pattern, I hate the shoes.
    They remind me of some house frau’s kitchen slippers. The dress deserves a more structured shoe/sandal.

    Strong words for strong feelings!

    Leopard print is a hard job – but worn with the red shoes – nice look.

    The street example is 100 times better, in the sleeve and the shoes. I’m going to be suffering through the wedge season for a while longer, I see.

    i agree with the sleeve comment, it was the first thing i noticed when i saw the runway pic – love the cut, the fabric and the red shoes-one of my favorite pics that you’ve taken so far

    I was not surprised when I opened my July InStyle and saw this dress inside.

    Though I prefer the runway version (critical high and massive plattforms contrast with the cute cut of this dress and gives the whole thing strenght… the streeet version lacks of it); I must recognize that the street version seems a good street interpretation of the idea. Not so glamourous but fits the streets. Nice!
    Clear cut is clear cut wherever you wear it, and of course it improves the “leopard thing” and makes it so classy!
