The Magda Berliner dress at left seems to take its cue from YSL's 1970 design currently on display in Montreal (below). I'm not sure if I prefer the look of ribs or hipbones exposed through windows of black lace, but the latter makes me curious about what sort of undergarments would be possible. The ensemble at right I very much wanted to wear to Batman: The Dark Knight last Friday.
Update: The YSL dress above in a photograph by Jeanloup Sieff.

haha...good point about the undergarments. i don't think these dresses were created with them in mind!

loving the one of the left. the one on the right, i like the top half. not too crazy about the poufy skirt though. think i would have prefered it streamlined and fitted?

anyway...those books behind the model reminds me of the piles of magazines in my room! what to do adeleine? how do you organize your mags? :T

that would be perfect for batman... which i'm dying to see. hopefully they play it in the english speaking cinema.

besides i don't think batman requires undergarments... eh, wink wink

Quite right. I'm more of a streamlined than poufy beast myself.

Mags... it's taken me a while to sort that out, but I usually cut out the pages I want and file them (or post on my mood board). Issues I'm not willing to rip up are lined up on a bookshelf.

I like it when all my belongings (magazines included) can fit in a car trunk though, so I don't hold on to so many these days :)

That last dress is STUNNING! o.O

the above dresses are very chic too. The dress to the right definitely has a 'bat look' so would be great for Batman!

i love those 1st 2 dresses. actually the hip exposing version the most. and in love with all things paneled with or using lace inserts. it's inevitable. it's too lovely.

Love it or hate it, you certainly can't accuse this dress of being drab or uninteresting.
