Two very pretty dresses with two very different price tags!
Ok, so we’ll admit that the lace on the Erdem dress looks finer, softer, that little more delicate than on the Topshop. But to justify the price tag it would need to be bought for a somewhat special occasion. And the Fashion Police being the clumsy sort, we can almost guarantee that the lace would get caught on something or someone at some point in the evening, resulting in much wailing and teeth-gnashing in anguish…
Yup, from our perspective it’s better to be on the safer side and go for the save. But what about you? Would you splash out on Erdem’s Margot lace dress, or hover under £50 with Topshop’s three quarter sleeve red lace number?
So we paid our old friends Lionella a visit, you know, just to check up on them, and we were alarmed at what we found. Yes, they are now stocking a shress. Lionella call this ‘sexy, elegant and enticing’, but you dear reader know better of course, don’t you. Insert your own description of this dress in the comments.
If you think we are totally wrong about this however, bail is set at just £36.36 (which should leave you plenty of cash to buy something to wear underneath it) and you can get the shress here.

Dianna Agron looks like she was determined to steal the show at Audi’s Cocktail Party Celebration For The Golden Globes Awards, with one of the more eye-catching outfits of the evening. The top of this dress is very 1980s-Madonna, while the bottom is very, well, feathery. Is it a winning combination, though? You tell us!

This Duke & Duchess dress was actually a citizen’s arrest by Fashion Police reader, Alice. It’s been taken into custody, not simply for being a white lace dress, and therefore the sort of thing Britney Spears would (and has) worn to one of her weddings, but because of this:
Bad enough for the shoulder pads to exist in the first place. But for them to be so highly visible? And so very PINK? They almost distracted us from the super-ugly black zip, which really has no place on this see-through lace dress, but only almost: we see the black zip and the pink shoulder pads, and we consider them sufficient reason to cast this dress into the depths of Fashion Police jail. Bail is set at £60, and is payable to ASOS.com.
