It's a spine. In a dress.
I repeat: a spine IN a dress.
I don't know who is responsible for this magnificence. I wanna say McQueen because it's a very McQueen aesthetic but I couldn't find it in any of his collections that showcased skeletons. I did, however, find a snazzy, jazzy number by Schiaparelli on my travels.
The ribs on the back kind of look like giant fingers holding the torso (no? just me?) but I love the way they arc up under the breasts at the front.
I imagine it would need an emaciated Victorian harridan to really do it justice. Or...
Someone like Helena Bonham Carter. O, she'd be fantastic in this Schiaparelli.
Hang on... did I just invent the fashion equivalent of Fantasy League Football?
Fantasy Fashion Styling? All right!
