Intergalactic or Planetary?

You remember that outrageously holographic F/W09 collection from Balmain, and how it looked on the UK’s most overrated model of all time, Kate Moss? No? Here’s a reminder:

Thanks to Deena for the heads up! I have to say, as much as I enjoyed parading round the house wearing this, I’m not sure I have the confidence to wear it out in public. I feel I would be a glutton for verbal abuse! But hey, I might throw a house party for an excuse to wear it… In the mean time, I’ll stick with these bad girls From Dorothy Perkins, which I’ve owned for a while. I will attend the structured-shouldered ball, dammit!

Meanwhile, I gotta curb this pun habit of mine.
