Head to Toe Denim: Can it Be Done?

Fullscreen capture 27092009 231235

Or maybe a more apt question would be: Should it be done? Because I figure if some of the most accomplished designers of our time have attempted to put a top to bottom denim look together, such as Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana (for D&G, left) and Ralph Lauren, then that's likely as good as it's going to get. And if this is the case, would you wear it?

The D&G look is way too dirty for me but I like the idea of Ralph Lauren's depression era newsboy look. But there's no way in the world I would go out the door wearing it. For otherwise I would forever be known to everyone who saw me as 'Denim Girl'.

And as for lace and denim? It was a hideous idea in the 80s and it's downright unforgiveable now. Is this really from Dolce and Gabbana, their main line? I'd even take the men's pajama top and ball gown skirt combo over this!

I agree with you on that second look. Not good!

Sure why not? I'm all for taking fashion risks, no matter how hideous their experiments...

this is one of these things better left on the 80s...I did it back then, so I'm not really feeling keen on revisiting it :)
