When 'Ready To Wear' Isn't

Anna Sui is obviously a talented and innovative designer, but we have to wonder whether (and why) anyone would spend $200 for the privilege of wearing a tent dress with boobie eyes. It's a clever runway look–and we certainly wish that our ovaries and lower intestine looked that pretty (though who's to say they don't....)–but having to explain that the rather prominent black dots on your nipples are part of a savvy statement issued by a top designer is akin to having to explain a failed joke (i.e., deeply unsatisfying and frequently embarrassing). Of course, if that's your bag, you might want to consider completing the look with a whimsical brain hat like the one pictured above. Your kookily-outlined bust will suddenly seem like the least strange thing about you.
