Wear or Die: Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Fall 2009 edition

Agatha-Ruiz-de-la-Prada-Fal

  Ah, the wonderful world of high fashion! Humorous? Yes. Creative? Most definitely. Something you'd actually wear in real life? Um, not so much, sometimes.

What if you HAD to wear it in real life, though? What if some of those "for the runway only" creations were ALL you found in your wardrobe one morning, and you had no choice but to wear one of them? Or what if The Fashion Police forced you to wear one of them, on pain of death?

That's the difficult situation you find yourself facing today, readers. Above are two outfits from the Agatha Ruiz de la Prada Fall 2009 show. You must wear one of them – or die.

So, which one will you choose?

    Mousy

    I’d wear the first and hide behind a bush, hoping that nobody would notice the odd-looking, heart shaped fruit (or my face… or my legs…) or I’d wear the second one and sit in an aviary, where everyone would think I was merely a particularly big and colourful tropical bird.
    I do like a lot of catwalk fashion (I do study it after all) but you’re right… nobody in their right minds would use these as street wear!

    Totally the second. Heck, if I want to look weird, at least I’ll do it having fun.

    The second. Bright and cheerful, and today is a bright and cheerful day

    b.

    I’d wear the one on the right, and promptly find the nearest gay pride parade to justify the outfit. The one on the left is only permissible if you’re a five-year-old taking part in a Christmas pageant or something.

    B…it reminds me of starbursts, skittles, and various other forms of colorful candy. A just looks like a cartoon tree.

    Well, I’ll play different so I’ll choose the one on the left and pretend to be a tree on a child’s play.

    Haha just got a good laugh from this –
    I would wear it for Halloween – People would probably assume I was dressed up as a “mental hospital runaway” – still high on “happy” pills, or a suddenly shy Victoria Beckham hiding in a love bush –
    So I chose numero uno

    i am actually torn between the 2 on this round of WOD…definitely a first
    i feel like wearing the first one and doing very robotic moves through a park
    or wearing the second one and twirling around while dancing to stayin’ alive
    i also feel mousy’s aviary plan…i would have the urge to yell “kaw” at people while wearing the hairy rainbow

    I’m going with the pink heart thing, I almost went with the cousin it rainbow, but then the thought of all that hair got too weird. I might have handled fringe, but not hair.
    Anyway, I’d wear the pink heart thing and go to the park and try to make money doing yoga poses as a performance artist for the day.

    I’d wear the rainbow thing. Then I’d repeat what random people said in a parrot voice. Maybe I’d go with nj’s idea and run around flapping my arms and going “CAWWW! CAWWWW!!!”
    That actually sounds extremely fun.

    I so very much LOVE wear or die. Your cruelty knows no bounds. If I had to choose, I suppose I’d wear the Cousin It on LSD suit.

    The one on the right. I would then roll around the floor in my apartment and we wouldn’t have to vacuum any more.

    The only acceptable place I can imagine to wear the colourful ‘B’ would be among the Muppets and I would be the girlfriend of the big wooly beast from Muppet Treasure Island
    (I have forgotten his name -_- but he wears the pants & is bigger then anyone else.)
    For the flowerly one, I would wear that more then B and just muck about in parkes annoying people as they walk.

    I’d go with the pink bush thingy. At least it’s form-flattering!
