Christian Dior Couture: Kate Hudson

Katehudson Christian Dior Couture and the Palace of Versailles. Seriously, can you imagine anything more perfect? Versailles was the setting for Dior’s 60’s birthday bash last night, meaning that the stars were out in force – and in Dior Couture creations, natch.

My first instinct when I saw this picture of Kate Hudson in yellow silk was to love it unreservedly. It’s such a dramatic dress, and I love a bit of drama, me. On second glance, though, I’m not too sure. This is the kind of dress that’ll look best when you’re moving (not that Kate’ll be doing much of that without tripping over that long hem), and I’m not keen on the way it outlines her body, like the Turin shroud. Whaddya think, fashion fans?

    I kind of see your dilemma.
    It’s beautiful fabric in a beautiful color and it drapes rather elegantly.
    But my biggest problem with this dress is the sleeve/no sleeve effect, which I have never understood and am in fact philosophically opposed to.
    I mean, what — you couldn’t make up your mind if it was going to be warm or cold, so you hedged your bets?
    I just don’t get it.
    Kind of like I don’t get single items of clothing masquerading as multiple items of clothing…
