Wear or Die: Couture Week Edition – Givenchy 2010

Readers, you SHALL go to the ball!

Yes, your Fairy Godmother Fashion Police Officers have waved our magic wands, and tonight we’re taking you all out to the fanciest ball you can imagine. And what’s more, we’ve scored you a couple of couture gowns to wear too, courtesy of Givenchy. The only tiny problem? It’s the two dresses pictured above. And if you don’t choose one of them to wear to the ball? Well, you die. Them’s the breaks.

Which dress will you choose, then, assuming that you must wear one, or die? Tell us in the comments!

    Option A. Even if it has way less coverage, it at least manages to conceal the crotch, rather than create weird crotch-framing curtains. And I guess the lacy stuff is sort of pretty, sort of.

    Option A please as I, too prefer my crotch to be covered and not framed.

    option A, at least my private area remains private.

    If only Option A came with a coat. Though option B is a tad more flattering to my generous figure, I think I would rather show the world my flab than my lady parts, so I guess I go with A.

    Apart from the private parts exposing thing, both of the dresses are absolutely ethereal, but this time I would go with option A, as it offers a bit more erm… privacy.

    Option A for sure… But first I’d have to make a deal with another type of creature to lose that last stone I’ve been working on.

    Option A because I think it’s the prettier of the two and because I have an issue with showing the whole world my crotch.

    B, with white underwear. Rather look trashy than look like I have a skin disease.

    A as it looks a bit less like a nightgown gone wrong and more as if it’s meant to be worn like this. I’d have to keep dancing all night, though, as sitting down would probably cause a problem… By the way: The jacket of dress B is even more hideous than the “dress”.

    Option A. It doesn’t have a crotch window, and the coat on option B is horrible.

    Oh my gosh, how intracate and beautiful those dresses are… If only they were not so revealing. *sigh*
    Though, to be honest, if I had the money, I’d totally buy one.
    Hmm, but which one? I love the jacket and more lacey design of the second, but I’d probably get the first.
    Oh, wait, I know! I’d get the second one, but wear with one of those silk slips underneath. Genius.
    Love ya Fashion Police xx

    I would totally go with A because keeping my lady parts covered is more important than going with B and indulging the Gaga-esque message that I must broadcast their existence to a doubting crowd.

    I think this is the first time that I’m choosing death over either option. The prince and his ball just aren’t worth it! Although maybe option B would get the prince’s attention 😉

    Option A, since I too would like to keep my lady part private. And I’m not feeling that jacket on B, anyway.

    Neither. I make it a rule not to expose my crotch at fancy balls; those days are behind me.

    B looks like Chewbacca’s skeleton. A looks like an intergalactic princess with hair plugs in her knees. Are those see-through gloves or did they glue metal to her arms and hands? I think I’ll take A. It is slightly less offensive to the eyes. Just slightly.

    You’re right, Karyn. I was wondering if option B was SUPPOSED to look like a skeleton or not. Since it does look like one, I’d be more likely to choose it. Maybe for the Dia de los Muertos ball.

    Option A… sadly, it’s the only one that ‘covers’ the poon area.

    A. i think im the only person who thinks these are seriously beautiful (although not completely wearable). a toned down version would be gorgeous.

      You’re not alone! I think they’d be beautiful with some kind of slip underneath. As they’re shown here, they’re just comical, though 🙂

    I’ll have to go for option A, at least the essential areas are covered…

    Option A. I think it would be beautiful if it only had something like, I don’t know, SOMETHING ANYTHING underneath it.

    A, for the usual reason. Are they ghetto Elvis wedding dresses?

    A, because I’ve always liked cap sleeves. Especially with Zulu gaiters.

    Wouldn’t B require a total Brazilian wax job? And then, wouldn’t the effect be sort of like lace curtains draped around the whirling light on top of the fire truck?

    You folks are TOO FUNNY!!!!

    I’d wear option A and cut the excess bottom bit off and that stuff on the arms and just have a really short dress. And wear it with brown french knickers, black heeled pumps and hair in a low loose side bun for a night out and bright lips and nails!

    Option A, then steal the furry yeti coat thing from the girl in option B and wrap it around me. At least option A covers the crotch…

    The girl in option A is regretting signing up for the modelling agency…
    Remind you of one of those ‘final fantasy’ games anyone?
