Celebrity Style on Trial: Eva Herzigova’s top/dress at the Copard Party in Cannes

Celebrity Style on Trial: Eva Herzigova's top/dress at the Copard Party in Cannes

In the world of fashion, there is a certain school of thought which says that if ya got it, you may as well flaunt it.

There’s also another school of thought, however, which says that if your dress could easily be mistaken for a long-ish top, you may well end up flaunting a whole lot more than you bargained for.

There’s no doubt in our minds that Eva Herzigova has GOT IT. We think we might be about to see “it”, too, if she just leans forward a little. This makes us suspect that Eva may well be committing a fashion crime here, and getting away with it purely on account of the got it/flaunt it rule.

SHOULD she get away with it? Where do you stand on the issue of dresses that look like tops? Should we get the cuffs out?

    She definitely should not get away with that, whether she has ‘It’ or not

    Even if you let her off with a warning on the shortness charges, arrest her for wearing a hairy dress. Those fringes should not be legal.

    Of course it’s a dress. Las Vegas strippers dress like that all the time.

    in hollywood (or cannes in this case) when people yell “how do you spell dress” they get back “tee-oh-pee”

    She looks so uncomfortable that I’m inclined to say, let her off with a warning – she probably won’t re-offend. (Oh, and hate the shoulder-pads btw.)

    She does have great legs, but I think this is taking it a little too far. Appropriate for the beach, but not for a formal event.

    Too short! But at least the neckline is high–thereby following your “Short one way or the other” rule. But still, TOO SHORT!

    2 inches, just 2 inches would have made it OK with me. however, every time I look at it, all I can see is this: http://www.whatsthatbug.com/2009/11/18/house-centipede-33/

    I think micro-dresses look so awkward. Even if the dress is a beautiful fabric or color, all I see is “Oops, she forgot her pants”.

    I think Eva must feel the same way because she looks like she is desperately thinking, “Don’t flash your crotch, don’t flash your crotch” to herself as she poses very awkwardly.

    The length didn’t bother me so much as the glittery fringe. And is it me or does the embellishment in the center look like a centipede?

    no. I love the dress but it is just too short.
    Short dresses are stylish, but there is a line. This is not attractive or flattering; it just looks like her dress shrunk in the wash or is too short for her; instead of the sexy and appealing look it is supposed to give, this just looks awkward. There is nothing worse than awkwardness in fashion!
    It is a pretty dress but needs at least another inch on it!

    Arrest her. The dress is too short, too hairy and has shoulder pads. Three strikes and you are OUT

    You’re only young once, so if you’ve got it flaunt it, (a little, without being downright slutty of course!) If you don’t, you might wish you had one day! So, if she has panties on and doesn’t do a naked crotch shot a la Britney S. What’s the harm if you don’t make a career of it?
