We first spotted feathered dresses back in February, and we’ve noticed the aviary influence popping up on accessories like headbands and bags. . .but we still can’t help staring at Sarah Michelle Gellar’s dress! At a party celebrating her SELF magazine cover, the Suburban Girl star wore an Alberta Ferretti dress with a totally feathered skirt that begs the question — can she sit in that?! Maybe it’s just us, but we can’t imagine wearing a feathered dress. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear Sarah Michelle’s feathered dress? Is this a trend you would try?

I would not wear it myself but she looks really cute in it!

This particular one doesn’t look very good. The top of the skirt looks like it’s not done. Normally I think they can be very daring and elegant. This one falls flat.

i’m sorry Sarah but the dress has got to go!

Ah, no! I think not. I believe this dress is a “flight risk” — the trend in on the endangered species list so not much fashion mileage to be had. It’s also overdone. Celebs, however, are out and about so much they’re always looking for something a little different, fun, and fanciful. She looks cute, as per usual.

This look may only look good for people in the entertainment world, not in real life.

I think Sarah looks gorgeous and classy. She pulls the dress off. I myself would never wear it, but in my small Southern town I wouldn’t have anywhere to wear it anyway.

Nope. She’s a pretty girl but her fashion sense is a little out there, lately I’ve seen her really pushing trends that aren’t flattering. I know people find kooky fashions fun but at the end of the day I’d rather wear a dress that shows of my figure in a color that really brings out my colorings and just leave all the wild trends for the runway.

It’s funny to see fashionista’s so proud that they are wearing the latest trends be totally outdone by someone like Catherine Zeta Jones who knows how to dress with class and style.

Fashion has it’s place and it really is wearable art. But when it becomes this ridiculous pretecious bull which was well depicted in the Devil Wears Prada (with the meanies) it’s just kind of sad because it’s like ‘ya you may be wearing the latest most expensive trend but you look like a bird and miss classy and elegant just wiped the floor with your following feathered rear’.

Most guys do not like the crazy fashions. They’ll always appreciate a sexy dress or gorgeous gown but the bubble dreses and weird fashion really don’t impress anyone except possibly other fashion slaves.

P.S. This is the woman who said
she is usually “practically living on soup and vitamins.” and

“How can women be as thin as we[celebrities] are? We have personal trainers to work us out. We have specially prepared meals.”

Funny my friends and family memnbers are just as slim (BMI wise)but we prepare our own meals and work out at home on our own no help required. We eat out vitamins but we eat a lot more than soup.

I’d wear it! I think it’s classy and has old hollywood glam.

Sonya on
