The Case for the Prosecution: For reasons the prosecution can't quite put their fingers on, there's something vaguely reptilian about this dress. And the huge ruffle on the shoulder makes it look like something the Lizard Queen would wear in some kind of freaky sci-fi movie in which alien reptiles come to earth, wearing Balmain.
The Case for the Defence: It's a statement-making, eye-catching extravaganza that no one will be able to ignore. Ever.
What do you think, readers? Do you think Balmain's sequin ruffle dress should be convicted or acquitted of committing crimes of fashion?
