My friend Dylan, not exactly a fashion guy, texted me last night after seeing Blake Lively’s MET Gala dress on Instagram. Here’s what he said:
It does look like a bag of raw chicken juice. And that sheer layer of material at the slit? It looks like the plastic wrap for chicken when you buy at the butcher. How is this Burberry?!? How is Burberry tucking feathers and flower petals into a chest like they’re dollar bills?
If you’d told me Blake Lively was wearing Vera Wang, sure. Or Badgley Mischka, especially with the ruching on the sweetheart neckline, yep, I wouldn’t check your work. But Burberry? HOW?!? Burberry co-signed the Mardi Gras beads coming out her ears? Burberry has decided it wants to be in the business of imitation Princess Grace? When did that happen?
