    Uniboob. Pepto. Do not like.

    • Rand Ortega

      Pepto Uniboob. Didn’t he front a band back in the day?

      • leahpapa

        Indeed! Pepto Uniboob and the Velcro Straps’ greatest hit was probably “Mammography Bodice.” Good memory.

        • YoungSally

          I was thinking it looks like the straps that keep my dogs’ coats closed….except worse.

          • alyce1213

            Exactly.

        • Rand Ortega

          LOL! Yeah, but “The Boob Tape Chronicles”? Best rock opera ever!

        • rebeemoon

          Sounds like something Colin Mochrie would announce to Wayne Brady. Who would promptly make it up on the spot, singing it in his perfect tenor.

          Whose Line Is it Anyway? leahpapa’s!

    • BrooklynBomber

      Aggh! Pepto Uniboob ’80s Prom, God help us.

  • marlie

    I don’t like the ace bandage bodice, and the skirt is too eye-searingly bright, but her makeup is very pretty.

  • Daisy Walker

    That last photo. The shape…is not good.

  • mixedupfiles

    Nope. Bodice looks like velcro tabs for you to pull.

    • @Biting Panda

      You beat me to it. I can practically hear the Velcro sound in my head.

    • TAGinMO

      Children’s Band-Aids.

  • Isana Leshchinskaya

    great in theory, terrible in execution

    • kirkyo

      I’d like it a whole lot more if the skirt looked more matte, like in the photo. They also apparently needed to transport her to the even standing up.

  • In_Stitches

    If she was wearing hot pink velcro vans, I’d have high fived her. As is, she’s just scoring a 5 out of 10, and that’s on the generous scale where you never really give anyone anything below a four just to be nice…

  • @Biting Panda

    DIY dress.

  • BayTampaBay

    That is one FUGLY dress.

    • demidaemon

      YES. Inspired by antacids and requiring them at the same time!

  • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

    @gaby said “Are these awkwardly waisted little-girl cupcake dresses a trend right now?” on the Sally Hawkins post. And I think the answer is yes. Sadly. Yes.

    • alyce1213

      Infantilizing grown women, ugh.

      • http://foodycat.blogspot.co.uk/ Alicia

        She looks like she knows the waist is too high and pulled it down as far as she could without nipple exposure.

        • demidaemon

          And are they flattering on any woman? Please inform me if they are, so we can send them all over to her and away from everyone else.

    • marlie

      They have been for a while, and I have yet to see one that doesn’t look like the wearer has on a dress that they borrowed from a child.

  • MilaXX

    Don’t like the bodice and the skirt looks too short and choppy on the model, short,choppy & wrinkled on Felicity.

  • alyce1213

    Isn’t chest binding passé? I jest, it’s just wrong.
    I was handed that same horrid pink fabric several years ago and asked to make costumes for two little girls in my son’s class, for the big show. I did what I could, but it’s nothing I’m proud of. And now it’s on a designer dress. I think I did better.

  • mmebam

    ???

  • DaringMiss

    Smokey eye misfire!

    • alyce1213

      That too.

  • Blair Sylvester

    I’m starting to wonder if Stella pays Christopher Kane to make the worst clothes he can dream up so that she is no longer the worst British designer

  • msdamselfly

    This is so gorgeous!

  • Malibufire

    My breasts are crying in sympathy.

  • teensmom99

    I wore this outfit one year around 20+ years ago . . . to a costume party where I dressed up as a beauty pageant contestant.

    • Kent Roby

      Didn’t we all?

      • teensmom99

        Of course.

  • Alyssa

    She has beautiful eyes. There, I said something nice. :)

  • Ashleigh

    I thought boobs were one of the perks of being a woman…

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    Budget Barbie. That cheap kind your mom gets you at the dollar store when you’re not getting a real Barbie.

    And in other fabulous news – My TLo book just arrived from Amazon!! I have something awesome to read on my ride home tonight!

  • Anna

    This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this woman in something with a weird bodice. I’m beginning to think the more awkwardly-strapped it is, the more she’s into it.

  • sienna elm

    More squished up boobs. First society wants them to be enormous then they squish them flat.

  • Lori

    So, in addition to be Coat Porn day it’s boob torture day? That is not a fun day. We should not be having that day.

    • Alyssa

      We should name it Boob Bondage day, to have a theme!

  • formerlyAnon

    Ugly bodice.

  • quiltrx

    Looks like the prom, and looks like she can’t breathe.
    And “dirty eye” and “smoky eye” are NOT the same thing.

  • Kent Roby

    I hope the poor dear was at least singing something from “Yentyl” while her boobs were being flattened.

  • lamamu

    Breasts. Women have them.

  • crash1212

    Wonder what her boobs ever did to Christopher Kane.

  • Joanna

    Her poor boobs – it’s tragic.

  • luludexter

    Dress is horrible. But Katy Perry could take pointers on bangs from this look…

  • bertkeeter

    It just does not cut it without the the “mens pull on boots”…. just kidding! It is tad frumpy like a lot of LONDON’s looks this LFWK…

  • Nancer

    I didn’t know there was a Bondage Prom!

  • EveEve

    No! to the visible hem job. Pet peeve. Especially on a heavy satin skirt. And even more expecially with it’s a six inch hem.

  • Gatto Nero

    Looks like one those choking Elizabethan bodices that squash the girls. Not really digging the snake print with the satin, either.

  • boweryboy

    Satin. Shiny, ugly satin. I hate it.

  • desertsweetpea

    The top reminds me of a Trapper Keeper.

  • http://www.ellenciompi.com/ NurseEllen

    Barbie…..that is all.

  • Myra Amler

    Ouch. That looks painful.

  • neeBarbero

    Trapper Keeper top?

  • nannypoo

    This bodice is all tight and flat and corsety just like the dresses she always wears in those period dramas, so maybe she’s used to it, but my boobs are weeping in sympathy.

  • kimmeister

    The torso of the dress, both on her and the model, is shaped like a perfect cylinder. Torsos on humans are not cylindrical.

  • ovarB

    No. Just no.

    And for a second, I thought this was Miley Cyrus pre-twerk freak out.

  • DominoEstella

    snakeskin vet wrap. Lovely.

  • Susannah

    Oh, THAT’S what happened with my dad’s old back brace!

    • demidaemon

      Was his neon pink too?

      • Susannah

        Certainly should have been.

  • demidaemon

    Ugly, twee, and tacky. What an awesome trifecta!

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    I had a white brace like that when I had a tummy tuck. Not good memories. The whole thing is just odd. Like ‘one of these things is not like the other…’

  • BrianaJC

    top reminds me of slap bracelets, the whole things looks like Barbie’s Fashion Avenue ensembles. so, basically this makes me nostalgic.

  • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

    This looks like something I would have cobbled together for one of my Barbies using Band-Aids, fishing line, and my mother’s sewing scraps.

    • poggi

      It probably would have looked better. Barbie’s plastic breasts would have been able to resist the mashing a bit better.

  • Qitkat

    Well that is certainly one way to rethink the bandage dress. Only for the most slender of ladies. The top element is intriguing though, in a Japanese feudal kind of way. And the colors are sumptuous.

  • AC Simons

    Twee as fuck and Pepto. No.

  • MoHub

    Those poor, poor boobs! Mine are aching empathetically.

  • Julaine Haraden Morley

    Band-aid bodice works for no one.

  • kcnitch

    Is she allergic to jewelry?

  • Clash D

    I thought the whole point of being a fashion designer was to dress women well and make them look their best.

    What is this.

  • Joanie

    Why oh why is she wearing what amounts to a back brace?
