It is almost Easter. I used to get a new outfit every Easter. Usually it was an Easter dress with shoes and accessories. I have included in this post pics of dresses from the ridiculous to the ridiculous. Having recently watched some Science Fiction movies, I think some of the garments would have been perfect, such as the red dress. The dress on Rosie would be perfect for a homeless movie. Eva's dress just doesn't fit. Paris' dress would again be SCIFI worthy. As for the others, I am just not sure what they are perfect for. And thanks for allowing me to worry out loud about the state of the dress.

I notice often that the models walk around on their tiptoes in the shoes which are being shown on the runway. I have absolutely nothing against a good looking stilleto on a great pair of legs. However, many of the models on the runways don't have great legs. Their legs are so thin as to have no shape at all. I am sure many young women aspire to this look. I, however, prefer modicum of shape. That does not include bone shape. Anyway, designers in all countries seem to have jumped on the bandwagon of designing outrageous shoes. We see them in magazines, on red carpet attendees, and on celebs in the rag mags. We see some of the most outrageous shapes on the young women who are trying to make personal statements. About what I don't know. But I have included some of the latest in wearable????? statement wear. I also include handbags in statement wear. But I don't have the nerve to go there. Please enjoy the parade and be glad walking is optional.

.....I love this folks. Last year the word was no shoulder pads. They are too likely to harken back to the 70's and the Dynasty era. The body is important and the pads distort the body. So now, Givenchy uses such exaggerated shoulder pads that line of sight is interrupted. Don't drive in this outfit folks.
.....Armani Prive has given us more shoulder, more pleats, more fabric, and less color. I can only imaging what that outfit would look like on a woman with a weight problem.
.....And Last, not least, Gaultier Paris gives the world shoulder pads and weird, in spades.
