Wear or Die: Comme des Garcons Edition

Which would you prefer, readers: to be naked but for an enormous cloud of black lace… or to be clothed, but looking like someone attacked your dress with the gardening shears?

That’s the question that faces you in this edition of Wear or Die, for today you must choose one of the two dresses above to wear in public: or you must die. (And no, you can’t wear something under or over them: they must be worn exactly as they’re shown.)

Which will you choose?

(Both dresses are by Comme des Garcons and are available at Yoox.com.)

    1st one…I’d just make sure I had some decent knickers and such a loud pair of shoes on that no one would notice the five acres of black lace…

    The first one… at least you can put something on underneath it, belt it, and look semi-decent…

    Katie, you clearly didn’t read the rules… :p

    I would choose the one on the left because at least it covered up more..sort of and pass it off as the vintage goth look. The one on the right makes me think of curtains. Bad curtains.

    The one on the left at least looks like a dress so that’s the one I’d go with. The one on the right just looks like a bad interpretation of playclothes from the Sound of Music (curtains).

    A choice between black lace curtains and a black fringed lampshade? Eek. I’d pick the lace and wear my best undies. If I could wear something over this, I have a black velvet pirate coat that would rock this dress….

      The Fashion Police

      Haha, you’re welcome! Yoox is an amazing site for designer bargains, but it’s also a happy hunting ground for fashion crimes – I have a few more from there lined up for next week!

    I’ll take a tablecloth from the right. Tablecloth from the left is too bordello for me.

    i`m not into sheer and transparent stuff while i`m naked so i`ll take the dress on the right.
    if i can wear underwear i`ll take the lace one though.

      Ditto.

      I think the “can’t wear something under … them” rule needs to be clarified. 😉

    I’m going with cloud of black lace. I don’t do cut-outs; my tummy’s not exactly “toned”.

    Second one for sure. Since we have to wear them exactly as shown, I think I’d rather have most of my body covered.

    Since Black Lace clearly has a flesh coloured strapless bra on, juding by the sudden skin tone difference, and the strangely opaque patch at waist level, underwear is probably allowed.

    Black Lace would be my choice, as I’d prefer to trust my self to conceal potential trouble areas with arms etc, than show of my belly, which is a definite trouble spot.

    The left. Though given I’m 5″2 I’d look like something out of a Tim Burton nightmare.
