frills and flounces

This powder purple concoction from the YSL spring collection is growing on me... I'm not sure why, as the abundance of ruffles, mixed with futuristic mushroom sleeves (see June's Vogue Nippon cover below) should probably make me hightail over to a sleek Armani number, but... I'm curiously transfixed. So- yay or nay?

I say nay personally, Linda's dress looks like there's too much goin on at once

Nay!
It`s ridiculous, even Linda Evangelista cannot pull it off. Ugly.

I like the dress...its more of an idea than real life, but it works! The ruffles are amazing. Lots of time went into the dress

I love it on the cover of the magazine, perhaps because the bottom looks sleeker. But when you see it on Linda it's too fussy. I agree with the other commentator: when even a tall, slim, gorgeous top-model can't pull of an outfit it really doesn't work.

Ooh la love.

I adore it, but I'm looking at a pic of two Gorgeous'es wearing 'em... Not for the Normals.
