Under Fashion Police Arrest: Proenza Schouler’s beaded satin jumpsuit

Proenza-Schouler-satin-jump 

Well, if this isn't the worst use of $10,750 we've seen, we don't know what is. No, that's not a typo, readers: this Proenza Schouler jumpsuit really does cost more than a second-hand car, which is really quite amazing considering that it has so many things wrong with it we could almost use it as a handbook for new Fashion Police recruits, to help them identify crimes of fashion.

The puffy legs, finished with elasticated ankles – that's two crimes of fashion right there. The "lowered inseam", which is just another way of saying "dropped crotch". Three crimes of fashion. The "boobs busting out of the porn star top. Four. The trashy, cut-away sides. Five. The bondage-style back:

    If you want a laugh go to the web site for the full-length view from the back. And the beading which I thought might account for the price makes the fabric look even more hideous in close-up…

    Evelyn nailed it. I’m surprised those exact words weren’t in the product description.

    Do people actually pay for such? The back of the top is somewhat interesting though.
