Normally, I prefer to start off with the best of the best, but this awards season, perhaps reversing course with a bit of irony would be better. The famed designer Miuccia Prada has said: “I once tried to make lace — which has been a great obsession of women — unsexy. And I achieved it.” She certainly did with this rather strange number, worn by Lena Dunham. A very ordinary lace and pale powder-blue lining truly don’t hit any fashion marks here.
I am hesitant to criticize Prada, but it would be dishonest to assign a compliment. Sex appeal was completely absent, as was any jewelry, which, although it may not have helped this look, may have at least shown some real effort. A statement dress for sure, but it’s saying something horribly wrong . . .
