  • omd

  • omd

    @Alia san: how ironic that the people on fashion police are not respected in fashion and will never be.

  • Lilla

    I love her but I’m fairly certain that I will have nightmares about this ‘dress’.

    She almost looks like her character from The Hunger Games. Bizarre!

    Did she fall into the trunk with all the left over Christmas wrapping paper?

    I love it! It’s like she’s channelling Effie Trinket! <33333

    Katrantzou is quickly becoming one of the biggest fashion stars of the future but sadly this doesn’t work.
