  4. The way the model is holding her arms so stiffly pressed against her sides, all I can think of is a towel... So maybe it needs a more relaxed lady to pull it off?

  8. Perfect spa-wear, pre/post massage.
    Though it's certainly better than most cupcake dresses out there.
    Shoes are hideous.

    Is the model a robot or something?

  9. Wouldn't have thought towel until you said towel ... can't be unseen.

  10. Yeah... it's the model holding her arms so tight and straight that makes it feel like a towel...

  11. the drape is gorgeous and, as it's silk-crepe, i doubt it reads "towel" in person; that said, as it's mottled light yellow, i wonder if it might read "sex crime motel sheet" in person.

  12. Ha ha, lauren makes a good point.

    also, the gal in the pic above looks good in that color but not many pale girls can pull off yellow. especially dog-pee stain yellow.

    the shape looks like a fancy spa-wrap... that you used to clean something off the floor with.

  13. It's one of those pieces of clothing I see and think "maybe with a belt?" And then I try a belt on and it looks wrong.

    I think it'd be a great dress for a very slim, very beautiful person. That's maybe mean or whatever, but many designs are made for certain body types and I think that this is one of them. I'd look like a giant white rectangle in it.

  14. No not a towel. The model is awkwardly posed that's all. It's beautifully draped and would read well in person, it's just a badly styled picture. I think you would definitely need great accessories though. A big metal cuff and a torque necklace and really amazing shoes.

  15. I think Lauren's right - it must look different in person because of the material. But in the picture, I think it looks a little like a toga. A very sophisticated toga... for a beautiful Classicist.

  16. The model looks like if she pulls her arms from her sides, it will fall down. Towel (or possibly bed sheet).

  17. Every style deserves at least 15 minutes of fame. Besides, if Audrey Hepburn or Anne Hathaway wore it, believe me, the towel dress would become a classic...

  18. needs a belt, but yes, okay.

  19. I agree with Amy. The model really knows how to sell towels.

  20. They carry this dress at net-a-porter too, and even though I feel like they styled it much better (model looking relaxed, showing its movement and all), it still looks wierdly pee-yellow. I dont have a problem so much with the cut, as the color!
