    That's true. Unfortunately, however, most designers interpret 'beauty' as pink chiffon with butterflies and flowers floating about. There are beautiful elements in this Prada show. But a lot of it really challenges notions of pretty and ugly, fashionable and unfashionable. At least that's how I see it. Right now, I'm just grateful for anyone that's not doing boring ladylike blahness. Maybe my standards are too low? :unsure:

    I don't think so. And I truly wish you'd post in "What you are wearing today" thread :flower: .

    blah blah blah...i'm sure that going to the show with the huge video screens was very moving...which contributes to the positive reviews...but i have never seen such beautiful women look so incredibly bad...so how do you think 'real' women are gonna look in this stuff...

    and sure...it's a simple suede blazer to throw over jeans...well...excuse me...but why wouldn't i buy that same blazer at H&M or ann taylor for a FRACTION of the price???...it's just nonsense...

    and of course she had to make an about face...so that all the stuff everyone has been spending fortune on will look completely dated and they will have to run out to buy new stuff... so rude...really...

    well...not me...i'm not a victim...and i'm not jumping on the prada train...i've got my own direction i'm moving in ...thank you...and i'm heading towards limi fieu...

    lalallalalalalllalalalalala.....*happily skips away...*

    but isn't this always the case with prada basics? and we all know that prada subsists on girls who prefer the $400 camisole to the $30 one and the $600 pump to the $150. it is a brand for the conspicuous consumer; i think she's re-establishing that. so unique that it's immediately recognizable as a prada piece, but still functional.

    I like the 'about-face' that she did. That red dress w/ plunging neckline on Carmen Kass with those clunky yellow sandals seems almost charming in a way; it's put together but not so perfect. These are girls who grab your attention for a different reason, maybe not all the right reasons but sometimes those people can be more interesting. Prada is just massaging a different part of the psyche, the intellect maybe? It's being provocative in a sense by asking what's left if women eliminate what society finds attractive, visually pleasing...how should people respond to the clunkiness, pale skin, almost lifeless hair, all those things that are big no-no's, anti Paris Hilton...

    But then at the end of the day, it's just styling, it looks like it can be taken apart to one's taste.

    Wow, saw the whole collection. It was kind of Woodstock '69 meets early 90's grunge......not a good thing. What the hell was with the rediculous hats????

    i so agree, this is a fresh collection just becuase she's not been confronting even her own standards. Of course the hats are daed silly and the swan dress is a deja vu.. at least she's not falling in Milano's current pastel satin sugar bowl, she goes her own way, she's daring and conceptual and this i much respect.

    ps* i'd much prefer to adopt her summer menswear than her womenswear (if i had the money to burn-which i dont)
