Anna Dello Russo, Vogue Japan fashion maven, was seen in Milan tonight* at the Burberry Prorsum Milan Menswear S/S 2011 show, wearing a dress that could give the recent fashion attempts of Miley Cyrus a run for their money.**The long-sleeved, knee-length dress was made entirely of see through black lace, with only a satiny red demi bra and â€œgranny pantiesâ€ keeping us from viewing her what-nots. Dello Russo completed the look with leopard print wedge pumps and clutch, and, it goes without saying, her dog, Cucciolina.
On her blog dated May 14, 2010 Dello Russo stated, â€œFashion is a MUSE, you must
seduce her.â€ Well, she was definitely doing some seducing tonight.
The look itself skirted the line between trashy and classy. I donâ€™t know how she managed to pull it off, but somehow she kept the dress from looking slutty. How did she do it? Was it the wider pattern to the lace? (Making it look less like a stretchy fishnet outfit, and giving the red underthings the appearance of stripes in the lace.) Was it her trim body? Was it the fact that Dello Russo didnâ€™t wear a g-string under the dress?
No matter how she did it, certain popular celebs could take a page from her book when determining how to show some skin without looking like Julia Roberts in â€œPretty Womanâ€ pre-makeover.
So what do you think? Is the dress classy or trashy?
