In a couple of years, this will not be held in the same light as her naked pregnant VF cover


I bet the kids over at W must be pretty proud of themselves for being the first!!1!1! ones to feature THE Balmain dress (and on the cover!).

Yes, THE Balmain dress that perfectly captures the un-ironically-tacky stuff that Cristophe Decarnin sent down the runway. I'm still in total disbelief that the fashion establishment is totally behind his look, and Style.com even went so far as to give the collection the #2 slot in their Spring 2010 Top 10.
Oh, well.


Also I love that they put Demi Moore in a dress that's all about showcasing hipbones and then they go and Photoshop hers out of existence.

yeah this is so gross. Why are they trying to make her look like a bulimic teenager? sad.

Ewwwwww
Though I must admit, when I saw your tweet that said "Demi in Balmain" I was relieved to see it was Demi Moore and not Lovato.
Actually...I can't tell which is worse.

Yeah...I'm mad they didn't keep the continuity between her leg and hip on the right side...

TobyOliverDean said...

haha oh hilarity....

Fashionography said...

It's like the cove isn't even about her at all, it is about the dress.

Michelle said...

that is one ugly dress.

jen said...

InnyVinny said it before I could - there is a Photoshop of Horrors on her left/our right side. There is also something odd going on with the other side. If she's cocking her hip to the side, the other side is not following along?

dust said...

What if she is not photoshopped that much and this is a living proof of modern plastic surgery? No, no, it must be pilates, no,no,no, it's a good genes,for sure... Madonna must be depressed... The dress is nonsense beyond comment...

Anne said...

yeay. it's probably the mix of pilates and this super cream from helena rubinstein she advertises for. that makes her look so young and fresh... i feel a bit sad for that balmain dress.

Actually, the Spring 2010 Top 10 list on style.com is in alphabetical order, so HOPEFULLY, they didn't regard Balmain as the second best collection....hopefully...o_O

Whenever I look at this cover, I immediately thing of Xena!

I like the dress, but... :((((

NIGEL NO TRENDS said...

What in photoshop hell is this? Where did her right hip go? Yes the dress is sexy but the fujitsu covering flappy mesh is pure Vegas stripper

It is so nice to know that I'm not the only one not hopping on the Balmain bandwagon. It seems like there are not that many of us out there.

Jenna said...
