Kate Bosworth in Burberry Prorsum’s feathered dress

Spl57427_0171This Burberry Prorsum feathered dress has really been around the houses… It featured in UK Vogue’s Diary of a Dress this month, and has been seen on the likes of Agyness Deyn and Jessica de Rothschild, as well as appearing in fashion spreads just about everywhere. Now here’s Kate Bosworth with both the dress and it’s maker, Christopher Bailey , turning up at an event to honour Donatella Versace in NYC last night.

What do you think of it, though, readers? Is this really the “It” dress of the season, as the widespread coverage would seem to suggest?

    I love the cut of the dress but I can’t get behind this feathers business. Not only is it impractical (it would probably get ruined by rain/liquids in general, probably stains easily, how do you wash it??!) but it also makes you look like you escaped from an aviary.

    I have to say I think that is a very ugly dress.

    Is it just me or does this look a bit like a bear costume? Not a good choice, I wouldn’t wear it under any circumstances, unless of course if there’s a costume party and I would want to dress like a… feathery bear.

    Ugh, she looks like a cave woman.
