My date with the Rockefeller Center Xmas Tree
It is dramatic, I’ll give it that. Models in Tokyo today showed off dresses equipped with light-emitting diodes, for women who enjoy that chic lightning bug look. These will be available commercially in the fall, but… Here is what we’ve already reported about electrified fashions, and here are some additional risks:
- Notice the electrical cord. Do you want to spend your evenings six feet from a wall plug? And is there a cigarette lighter adapter for when you’re driving to the party?
- Speaking of that cord, dancing in this dress gives a whole new meaning to “tripping the light fantastic.”
- Not recommended for chicks with a stalker, who can now keep track of them from space.
