Would You Wear This Dress?

08/03/2006 at 12:21 PM ET

The fashion world is a buzz about a new look for fall. It’s all about The New Volume(!), or what non-industry folk like to refer to as oversized clothing. Kate Bosworth, who is generally stylish and always beautiful, is one of the first stars to embrace the trend, recently wearing a Lanvin dress that has been ooh-ed and ahh-ed over in many a fashion magazine. I just can’t help but think that it looks like she’s dressed in a hot air balloon instead of clothing. It’s too much fabric for one little body, but on the other hand, could anyone larger than Kate possibly wear it without looking like they are in their final trimester? This is one trend i’ll be sitting out, as comfortable as it does look. Something tells me that this is just the beginning; we’ll be seeing many other trend-setting starlets test out this trend this fall and winter. What do you think? Would you wear this look? — Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

If Kate threw on a belt, it wouldn’t look as bad as it does. I care about trends too, but you got to know when one looks bad on you! Trust your instincts Kate.

I think the style is okay, but that dress is awful! I don’t really understand the silver-sheer top… and that girl needs to eat… why is young Hollywood shrinking right before our eyes?!?

I would if I was pregnant.

Hope she didn’t ask, “Does this make me look fat?”

She looks pretty but the dress is horrible.

I would not wear this dress, it is very unflattering. It would look at least 95% better if it had a black belt around the waist or a wide ribbon even. Just something that would help show off her figure.

I don’t understand the sheer top. The dress starts out looking like it will be very clingy and flowy and then POW, she looks like she’s carrying twins! I truly hope that this fashion stops with that dress, or at the least drops down to skirt level.

OF COURSE IT CHIC AND SUPER GORGEOUS! its the perfect dress for HER!

Andrea on

I only like it cause it hides her rail thin body!! But I really think it’s meant to be worn as a skirt.
