Shress Spotting: Agyness Deyn in House of Holland, S/S 09

Agyness_deyn

You know how you sometimes look at fashions on the runway and think, “Well, that’s all very creative and all, but clearly no one would ever wear it in real life?” Agyness Deyn just doesn’t think like that, does she? Here she is wearing a sheer football-patterned dress (a “shress”, if you will) from House of Holland’s S/S 09 collection, and, in fairness, her face looks lovely here, doesn’t it? She’s all fresh and glowy and… oh. You totally weren’t looking at her face, were you? Because her boobs are covered only by a pair of footballs. Yes.

Now, it strikes us that if Katie Price or Jodie Marsh, bless them, went out dressed like this, everyone would probably point and laugh and tut-tut about how very trashy and tacky they looked, but given that it’s Agyness Deyn, and it’s House of Holland, we’re betting most of the fashion press at least will just call it “edgy” instead. What do you think, though, readers? Do a big set of boobs and a fake tan make that much of a difference, or is a trashy dress a trashy dress, no matter who wears it?

    Definitely the latter! Being “quirky” and “most wanted model” etc. okay, but this??! Oh, come on!

    Big boobs would make it uber-trashy. This is just trashy.
    And wtf gives with her feet – pink socks and black patent? I mean, I know Agnyes is edgy and all that, but there are limits!

    Agyness gets away with alot because she’s not “sexy” in any obvious way. She’s not all curves and boobs and booty. So trashy…eeeehhhh…it’s just a silly dress but seriously, since when does Agyness take fashion seriously? obviously she’s just wearing what she pleases.

    I would say it’s less trashy and more “huh?” because she is androgynous. She’s not wearing it to show off T and A, she’s wearing it because models wear ridiculous things. I wouldn’t call it trashy on her, just strange.

    she’s trying way too hard.
    it’s not edgy anymore, it’s just ugly.

    I wonder sometimes, how is it that she NEVER ever wears anything that looks good. I mean you can be edgy AND look attractive. She just always looks completely ridiculous.

    TRASHY! What’s she doing, wearing socks and sandals? (We East Coasters now refer to her as a “shoobie” – someone who wears socks with sandals, of course.) Oh, Agyness…when will you learn?!

    It’s not trashy, it’s ridiculous, but why not? If that’s what she pleases to wear, that’s fine. It would look trashy on Jordan, though, but not because of the dress but because large fake boobs with fake tan IS trashy.
