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

Ewe!!! Kate is Gorgeous, but the dress? Hideous! It looks like it’ll slide right down to her feet! And personally, I don’t even think it would do justice to a pregnant woman!

I don’t think this dress is really Kate’s pesonality; we have not seen her in anything quite like this so the real question… is Kate still trying to define her personal style? She doesn’t like the spot light and wants to remain low key yet she appears on the carpet in this dress.
Although the shoes are great, the dress is a bit much yet it hold your attention. Is low key Kate in need of some attention?

I think it’s great that she’s wearing a dress that doesn’t look like everyone else’s, and that she has the guts to break the mold and be an individual.

gorgeous. absolutly gorgeous. the slim fitting dresses of last season are definitly soon to be replaced with some volumizing shape defying new looks, and i think this dress is a wonderful example!

nope, i would not wear it…it me of the trash bags we used to don as kids to go play out in the rain…kate, please eat, you were so stellar when you were a normal weight, why starve yourself to within a cm of death???

Uh…no. That’s not a dress. That’s not even a muumuu or a tent. That is nothing more than a skirt that she’s hiked up over her chest. Apparently she got a little shy about that sheer top at the last minute, and pulled her skirt up for the sake of decency…..

Wow….I would never be able to wear this dress especially since I’m petite, this would look awful on me.
