CFDA Awards 2009: Molly Sims in Dolce & Gabbana’s Marilyn Monroe print dress

Spl107257_028[1]

We weren't sure what to think when we realised that Dolce& Gabbana were obsessed with Marilyn Monroe for their Fall/Winter 09 collection, but then we saw this dress on Molly Sims at the CFDA Awards, and started to change our minds. We're still not sure we'd want to wear someone else's face on our bodies, but this is definitely different, and we're loving the shape of the skirt.

The skirt version of this is currently available to pre-order at Louisa Viaroma, where it's 1,349 euros.

    Is it just me who thinks faces on clothes (especially Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn etc..) just makes its look really cheap?!
    All I can think of is those disgusting t shirts that Paris Hilton wears with her own face and name emblazoned over the front.
    I’ve seen dresses and skirts like this down the local ‘X-Rage’ shop i.e flammable-chav-clothing central.

    Faces on clothing freak me out. I would have preferred a simple flower print, but I love the shape of the dress.

    no, a big face like the one in the skirt looks positively attention-grabbing, providing it’s a pretty face… (not Paris Hilton). Nothing cheap about it as long as you don’t buy the clothing at Siren’s. I’d so want the skirt!

    i’m kind of conservative, i guess the only piece i favor would be the face print on a Tee, of course not the face of Paris Hilton. but putting it on a skirt, especially such a huge one, it just scares me though I would not deny its eye catching. but the shape is gorgeous

    Yeah, I’m a bit with Belle on this one. Perhaps it’s that the concept (grinning female face on clothing) has now been peddled across the board right down to the cheaper shops.
    Mind you, how confident would you need to be about your own beauty to be able to face-off against a larger than life size print of Marilyn Monroe on your skirt, hogging the attention?
    I do like the pouffiness of the skirt, and the diagonal cut to it.

    lol this hot-girl-plastered-on-clothing-item trend is bad. If you’re average or ugly, then it’s really not helping you. It has the same effect as walking right beside a model. Not very flattering
