Crimes of Fashion, Dresses

Worst Wedding Dress, revisisted

We thought we’d found the worst wedding dress in the world last month, when we showed you the see-through creation with the long, plastic-looking train.

We were wrong.

We’re pretty sure THIS is the worst wedding dress in the world:

Wedding dress with anatomically correct vagina may be the worst wedding dress in the world

Or, at least it WOULD be if it was actually available to buy and wear. Happily for wedding guests all over the world, though (Seriously, can you imagine trying to keep a straight face as THIS walked down the aisle towards you?) this isn’t actually “fashion”, but ART. It was designed by artist Hazel Moore, who displayed it during her degree show at Glasgow School of Art. Hazel says:

[yo_quote author=”Hazel Moore”]My degree show work for example explored the iconic Sheela-na-Gig. A conflicting symbol originally of fertility and later also of promiscuity. The Sheela-na-Gig motif throughout my degree show work celebrates the female form. My work confronts the audience’s own perceptions, encouraging them to not only interpret the work in front of them but also reflect their own reaction to the work.[/yo_quote]

Which, of course, begs the question: what IS your reaction to this dress? Do you see it as a feminist symbol, or simply as… a really bad dress?

Vagina wedding dress

The worst wedding dress of all time, or just a provocative piece of art?

While you’re pondering that important question, though, we’ve been taking a look back through our archives to find another example from the small, but growing much faster than we would ever have imagined, category which we call “Dresses Which Look a Bit Like Vaginas”. Catchy title, huh?

Who, for instance, can forget the famous ‘Vagina Prom Dress‘?

Not us, that’s for sure. And trust us: we’ve tried.

Or, for those who prefer a more subtle approach (and we honestly hope that’s ALL of you…):

Are there more vagina dresses out there? We can only hope not, but if there are, fear not, The Fashion Police will be on the case…
