Re: OVER THE TOP - CHRISTIAN SIRIANO TUX GOWN AT OSCARS LAST NIGHT

Christian Siriano is a genius.

 

People freaked at Chanel's suits.

People freaked at Dior's A line.

People freaked at Givenchy's sack dress. 

People freaked at Herve Legere's bandage dresses

People freaked at Mary Quant's mini dresses

People freaked at designs from Christian LaCroix, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Versace, McQueen, Vivienne Westwood

 

It's Fashion, capital F, and it's been too long since we've seen something totally new.  Which is the only way Fashion advances.

 

Well done, Christian.

He reminded me of something from the old movie " Jason and the Argunoits" .

I thought it was amazing. Real fashion moment. Of all the things not "normal" these days, that man in that outfit is definitely the least of all of them.

I'm not sure why a man wearing a dress qualifies as a real fashion moment. He just looks like a fool. 

 

For me, a real fashion moment is a perfectly tailored suit, tux, or dress...paired with the perfect accessories.

 

It shouldn't be the shock value....how easy is that to pull off? Designers do that every day.....it's stupid & ridiculous.

He talked about how men should be able to wear dresses, because women wear pants..... Did you notice how fast he chagned out of that thing into pants? Have fun with your dresses and spanx.  It was quite a look, but hope it isn't a trend.

Am so glad I didn’t watch last night... but it was impossible not to see or hear the most outlandish comments and outfits first thing this morning. What a huge waste of time that show has become.

Re: OVER THE TOP - CHRISTIAN SIRIANO TUX GOWN AT OSCARS LAST NIGHT

It's a fashion moment because it's creative-a tuxedo ballgown. It had no shock value to me because it wasn't shocking to me. Real life is shocking to me sometimes, not a man wearing a tuxedo ballgown. Some of the gowns the women wore last night "shocked" me for how unattractive they were to my eyes. That tuxedo ballgown was attractive to my eyes, it didn't matter who was wearing it. I like tuxedos with pants on men and women too.

 

The world is still functioning today the same way it was/wasn't yesterday BTB (before tuxedo ballgown). No one was hurt by it, no one died, it's not a contagious deadly disease, no men will be forced to wear it.
