Style on Trial: Emilio Pucci Madeira Geometric Cotton Dress

Emilio-Pucci-geometric-dres

  Well, talk about having deep pockets! Buy this Emilio Pucci dress and your pockets will be deep both literally and figuratively, in that you’ll need a lot of spare cash to afford it: $1,690 to be exact.

What do you think of it, though? The Fashion Police sit on the fence with the “big hips” issue in fashion. Too big and it can just look cartoonish, but a little bit of emphasis on the hips can be a good thing, we think, especially if your figure isn’t naturally curvy (and you wish it was). Which side of the fence does this dress sit on, though? The silhouette is definitely dramatic, but is that in a good way, or in a bad way?

You decide!

    In my opinion the shape of this dress is the least thing to worry about. The patterns and colours are MUCH worse and it’s definitely way to psychedelic for my taste.

    More scariness.

    Is there an ‘urgh’ side of the fence?

    It looks like a kitchen apron someone might have worn in the seventies.

    I’m intrigued. I kind of like it. At least enough that if it didn’t cost more than my monthly rent, I might try it on.

    I think maybe it has a little too much going one.
    But it is almost kind of cool. Just a bit over the top for my taste.

    I’m going to be different and say I love this dress! Not just like, but love. Especially with some plain white heels and some Versace big wavy hair. Although saying that, I am on the younger side of the demographic and have a rather boyish figure so the big pockets are a plus for me.

    I didn’t like it at first. But then on a second reading I find it very very nice. Very summer, african summer

    I am in total love with this… but it’s another case of “lower the cost and we’ll talk.”

    I agree with Veve. My thoughts exactly. I just saw it and liked it.

    I actually like the pattern of the fabric, however you should never have such a detailed design coupled with a detailed pattern, its just too much! Maybe it wouldn’t be such a crime if the fabric was black.

    On the homo side of the fence 😀
    I actually like the fabric, however that thing (Dress/jumpsuit?) is horribly cut .. With that fabric you just want a top – a dress-thing is too much – and who the hell would look good in this?
