    The top is very very good.. The second and third ones are awful especially the bottom one... I hate this heroin chic anorexic look..

    All of us? Well isn't that a unique generalization. Clothes highlight a woman. Certain clothes won't work well on certain women. Also in that regard certain women don't highlight the high fashion of certain clothes. I think some of the clothes that are being posted could have great potential, but the mannequin that they are on is so blah that I just don't feel the clothes speaking to me as I'd like for them to do when on a woman.

    I like these two shawls. For like outside art shows during the brisk fall months this look is hot with the leggings. I think this could also be appropriate for a semi-casual theater event. The other styles didn't really speak to me and I'd hope my lady wouldn't choose them.

    Not really with you on this one. It sounds like fashion for you is about how a person can be made most attractive, which is doubly problematic because A. It makes fashion about the male gaze, and B. it trivializes fashion as a whole. Other than the Ackermann above I've tried to post things that aren't deliberately sexualized, because honestly, we can do better than that.

    A female suit, a beret, a slouchy hat? Those are deliberately sexualized?

    I wasn't looking for you to agree with me, but women of different heights can wear different things well, women of different shapes can wear different things well, women of different races can wear things well. If we're not looking for things worn well then why is the thread entitled "how would you like a girl to dress?" Do we want our women to wear unflattering things that they don't wear well?

    I think the thread name is shitty, yeah. Sufu's "Superfashionistas", for example, is better. And there's a big difference between unflattering and not being worn well. I love CdG, which is far from flattering in most cases. It''s still beautiful.

    Really liking the leg opening of the pants in the Uma Wang collection. They remind me of a friend who used to cut the inseam a couple of inches in his skinny jeans back in high school. They would just swallow up his shoes.

    This is also one of my favorite parts about the collection, the hems/shoes are nuts. Not something I noticed right away, too. You can see it better in the 3/4 view pics.
