The AP Wire, that is. There was that ran last week. I'm linking to the version from the Winston-Salem Journal as a shout-out to my hometown …
"We're seeing a fitted bodice, fuller skirt – often knee-length to midcalf – with a raised or natural waist, a very defined waist."
But with all the choices available, Andrews suggests trying something other than the round-neck, sleeveless black sheath that's become the standard "little black dress."
His fall-holiday Lagerfeld Gallery collection features … a brown sleeveless dress with a pleated hemline, beaded waistband and white high-neck collar.
I believe this is the dress in black:
Look how cunningly the armscye is cut into a point, making it impossible to wear an ordinary brassiere under the dress! Look how high the collar is, so that it will make a red mark on the underside of the chin, and create a double chin where none exists! Look how the pleats are placed to highlight the widest part of the thigh! The Lagerfeld! He MUST BE STOPPED.
