Oh boy was last week’s Rate the Dress ever exciting! For a bit I thought that Mariana Victoria might actually be able to join Amelie Auguste as a 10/10, but then some people didn’t love it quite so much, and then we got into the whole issue of historical children’s clothes and all academia broke loose on my blog. It was awesome.
By the time it was over, it hardly seemed important that Mariana Victoria’s dress, while not as awesome as Amelie’s, was also awesome, and rated a 9.5 out of 10.
This week’s ‘Rate the Dress’ selection is inspired by last week’s debate, but I can’t tell you why, because that would 1) sway your vote and 2) ruin the fun.
Charles James has appeared on Rate the Dress previously. He is noted for his challenging sculptural garments that reference Victorian silhouettes while retaining a distinctly fashion-forward silhouette. This ball gown is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
What do you think? Too challenging and fashion forward? Or only pretending to be interesting and innovative? And what does it have to do with last week’s posts?
