Psssssssst! Your dress is on upside down!

June 25, 2007

Imagine if you will, turning this dress 180 degrees. You’ll have to imagine it, because our model seems to have donned this strapless white evening gown the wrong way.

Maybe she should have noticed it was upside-down when she needed to find some way to lay her hair down on what she thought were the garment’s “shoulders.” Another clue might have been the misshapen hideousness of the thing once she zipped it up – or down, as the case may be.

Then again, if you check closely, she seems to have been pretty busy putting red lipstick around her eyes, so maybe she couldn’t be bothered to read the instructions that came with the dress.

This years’ shoulder pads sure have a femininefying effect on a quarterback. You may not believe it but this is Staubach!

Better tell Jefferson de Assis at the bottom end of the torso.

Reversable jacket – Good
Flippable dress – Bad

Or good.

I used to do this to my sister’s barbies just to get her goad. Looks like it works just as well with models.

I can’t even imagine how she managed to walk the entire runway wearing the matching high-heel gloves.

Dear Mr. de Assis,
I will give you whatever you want within my power, even myself as your slave until death if you will simply introduce me to the vision of beauty and grace shown here on this page.

Most Sincerely,
The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Does your woman have too much self-confidence? Do you want to make sure she never feels secure about her appearance again? Then just get her the dress that will never allow her to live it down: the Fattonizer! Makes even a size zero model appear obese! Messes up the hair so that NO man will ever compliment her! Gives the legs of even the tallest, lithest models that stumpy, lumpy look!

But wait, there’s more! As an added bonus, we’ll throw in at no extra charge, unflattering makeup! That’s right: if your woman is pale, we’ll throw in dark red eyeliner, blusher, and lipstick that makes her face look spotty and pallid. If she’s got more colour, just let us know and we’ll replace that dark red with peach!

The Fattonizer – for men who are too insecure to tolerate a woman who feels good about herself. Operators are standing by! Call now!

I’ve heard women sometimes have a “bad hair day”, but I’ve never heard of a bad dress day.

There is nothing that models dont use if they get paid for it.
