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

Kate is so pretty, and she has some cool clothes, and i actually really like this one! she has a really goos sense of fashion.

This dress looks like a cinched black garbage bag. I agree that all this loose flowing clothing is very unflattering. as a matter of fact- it’s all I wore during my pregnancy and didn’t have to spend more on maternity clothes! I live in Tokyo and this style has been popular for the last year or so. It’s time for it to go.

I love Lanvin and they make some amazing clothes. The thing about fashion is that a lot of outfits that look great on models will not look good on regular people, so this new trend is not for everyone. You need to be tall and skinny to wear it without looking ridiculous…

tess on

She probably wore this because she was tired off all the criticism about her weight. So, she maybe thought that wearing an over-sized and unfitting dress would put the anorexia rumors to rest.

Only if I was pregnent. If your going too look pregnent, then you better be pregnent. Bad choice Kate! your so much cuter then that dress.

Melissa on

Yes,If I was Pregnant! It’s different, but I kinda like it.

Ellie on

i love this dress! fashion is all about being unique, and this definately is! i think her body looks great as well; i don’t think she is too thin

Jen on

I would definetly not wear this dress. I think for me, it just hangs too wide.

“Well it look’s like she just put a sheet on her, it dosent look to Fashie.”
