For once, you were amazingly unanimous about a Rate the Dress. With the exception of a two dissenting votes down and two perfect 10 votes, all the ratings fell from 6.5 to 9 for last week’s extremely matched brown-pink & blue Rate the Dress yet. Unsurprisingly, the end result was right in the middle of that range: 7.6 out of 10. As Beatrix said “not a showstopper but it’d certainly make you take a 2nd or 3rd look.”
After all the muted colours and half tones last week, this I really felt we needed something bright and bold and crisp and refreshing to rate. This advertisement from the New York Public Library’s digital collection fits the bill perfectly.
I thought about having a dress-off, but I don’t think it would be a fair battle as we can’t see enough of the orange ensemble to really rate it (though she would definitely win a shoe-off! The blue heels look positively common compared to the orange sandals) so you’ll be rating the green and blue outfit.
What do you think of it? The pale apple green paired with deep blue? The combination of angular piecing and soft, sensuous drapes and folds?
Rate the Dress on a Scale of 1 to 10.
