Curtains as eveningwear at Alexander McQueen

Alexander McQueen printed silk-chiffon off-the-shoulder gownThat’s not, in fact, a curtain you are looking at above, although you could definitely be forgiven for thinking it is.  It even has pencil pleats around the neckline.  It’s not a curtain though, we promise you.  Look:

Hmm…doesn’t look a whole lot less like a curtain when it’s being worn, does it?

Do you want your eveningwear to look like it should be hanging in someone’s front room?  If you do, you can buy this number at Net-A-Porter for the ‘bargain’ price of £7,260.  It would be far cheaper to buy an actual curtain to get this look*.

*Not really.

    Yikes. I don’t find that to be flattering at all!

    It’s quite lovely with a belt, looks very feminine and vintage… Or maybe I just can’t bring myself to hate anything with McQueen tag on it.

    It does look a bit better with a belt, but it’s still a hideous color and pattern.

    I’d wear these with a massive jewel encrusted Dolce and Gabbana corset belt, to define my small waist, and a clean all tied up hair! Not for fat ladies, I am afraid.

        True, but at least, a short but slim woman can wear 6 inch high heels and pull it off! A fat woman, will simply look like a massive yellow pillar, with odd saggy lumps!
