G-String Wedding Dress Is Anything But Virginal

67

g-string wedding dressI'm all for thinking outside of the box when it comes to a wedding dress. Sarah Jessica Parker's black wedding dress? I was all for it. Gwen Stefani's pink-tinged gown? Loved! But I think I found out today where I draw the line: With the G-string wedding dress.

Last week, in the midst of Berlin Fashion Week, uber-edgy German wedding dress-maker, Kaviar Gauche, showed just that. A wedding dress ... sans the dress. Or really any fabric at all, if you want to get all technical.

Here's a video of the dress making its skimpy way down the runway in all its glory.

Dude. Is this really necessary? I mean, seriously. Clearly, this is just edginess for the sake of being edgy. Is anyone actually going to wear this thing? And if a bride does want to get married in a swimsuit or lingerie or whatever this is supposed to be, I'm not so sure they'd go with this option. The piece of fabric connecting the top and bottom parts? The floor-length veil? It's hard for me to even wrap my head around what's going on here, but I know this isn't wedding dress-attire.

Kudos to Kaviar Gauche for coming up with something new in the tired field of bridal attire (I guess), but seriously, guys, did you honestly do this for any other reason than to garner publicity? Yeah, I didn't think so. But that's alright, 'cause -- hey, look at that! -- you're getting it.

Do you like this G-string wedding dress? Would you ever wear it?

I think this is a fabulous work of art. Not all fashion is commercial and wearable. This has a concept, and plays with irony, making it so much more interesting than a conventional gown. And honestly, how many brides are 'virginal' these days?

I love it, could NEVER wear it, but that model has a hot body that works it perfectly, lol...

Does anyone else think that this resembles the outfit of Leelu in the beginning of The Fifth Element?

Lighten up. 90% or more of the stuff you see on the runway wouldn't be worn by anyone, anywhere. I mean, hats up to there, crazy fabric choices, weird mask-like things... OK, maybe attendees at royal weddings wear them. Most of it even the over-the-top drag queens I know wouldn't wear.

HAHA @Mich! I thought the EXACT same thing! and Lord know only Mila ( a former model herself) and this model could pull it off! Cool to look at, but I am hoping no one would have the lack of class to actually wear it for a wedding. ;-)

I don't think they literally intend for someone to wear the as their wedding attire... UNDER their wedding gown though? Possibly. It actually (if it covered the butt...) is a lot like a dress I would like to wear that is 1/2 bathing suit lol. It just needs the mermaid style skirt

I've RARELY seen ANYTHING ever worn on a runway worn on a real person , it's few and far between even on rich celebs .... and a note on White= virginal ... in all honestly the "white wedding dress" = "being a innicont virganal young lady " .... the white came from it being a special day , and 100's of years ago , normal colors were some what muted , or in pastels , because they were long had trains and got dusty , dirty , and you did not do laundry weekly , A white dress would be something only worn once , For your wedding , it did have somethings to do with purity and almost meaning a Fresh start , with a pristine white dress , that you wore once and never wore again ... the White= a virgin is a newer concept .. I found this out while studding clothing design and fashion Thu out history which was a interest of mine for awhile , I had a friend who made reproduction clothing from the 1800 to 1900's .. by hand .. i just found that interesting ... and thought i'd share

That is NOT a dress....

High fashion or not, I find this totally tasteless. It cannot even be called a dress. While I realize that it is couture, these collections are worn, and this seems more apropos for a Lady Gaga concert than a wedding. Also, to Ally, you would be surprised. I am 21, as yet unmarried, still a virgin and will remain so until my wedding night. That's how I was raised.

If I were getting married.....I'd be proud of my woman wearing that gown!!!
