Oh, brother.

There’s been another thread on here lately about a high-profile runway designer dress, and … just … wow, really. I’m sure there are some Bees who will gush about how these are the greatest, most amazing, most mindblowing couture dresses, but honestly, they look every bit as ridiculous on the runway as they would at an actual wedding.

You can take or leave my $0.02 as you will, but: clothing choices send messages, and these gowns (as well as the one on the other thread) don’t send any kind of message about “I love you and want to give myself to you for the rest of our lives, and so I want to look beautiful for you today.” These gowns send the message that “this is all about ME. Everyone in the room should be giving ME their undivided attention. Look at how avant-garde I am, you inferior beings!”

No, thanks.

The company I used to buy for had a designer (one of the CEO’s girlfriends) that was obsessed with poly fabric with a rosette design. I’m sure you ladies have seen this particular fabric, it’s white and from far away resembles crumpled up tissues. I’ve seen it migrate to wedding dress skirts to my dismay. This fabric was the bane of my existence. It was heavy, difficult to work with, and very expensive to ship. Not to mention, it only flattered the very chic (you needed to have A LOOK to pull this off without looking like a mummy). One day, designer comes in as I’m figuring the cost of buying 50,000 yards of this rosette fabric and says “OMG FABULOUS IDEA LET’S MAKE BATHING SUITS OUT OF THIS STUFF”. Despite all of my protests, CEO wanted to keep girlfriend happy so lo and behold…we came out with crumpled tissue granny panty bathing suits for our thousands of retail stores. I cried for days.

Looks like this designer has borrowed all of those bathing suits we didn’t sell.

@KCKnd2:  I was in favor of that particular wedding dress you mention. Reason being is that the silhouette is classic, despite the choice of materials. And I really think some people can pull that stuff off. It takes a strong personality to do it and it’s not for the faint of heart but I do admire those who can take bold fashion risks. Are they always gorgeous fashion risks? No. But it’s fashion, it’s meant to be fun.

Those are awful, and they’re even more awful in person. We saw them on the runway during New York Bridal Week. Scary doesn’t even begin to cover it.

@MayaBean:  Since you saw these in person, do you by any chance know what material this is? I’m sincerely curious because the sheen and drape of the Dior-esque 1950s dress looks like it’s vinyl…like the type you use for shower curtains. I can’t even begin to guess the mermaid one…
