I have never, nor do I purport now, to have any knowledge of women`s clothing.
Growing up in Kenucky, I thought that women got all their clothing at Montgomery Wards.
Which brings me to my questions. For the KisPerettes:
1.How does the woman in the blue gown (…w an 18 inch waist and a fucking 8 foot diameter bottom of her gown): Go potty? Get in/out of a car? Walk through a normal-sized door? Sit in a chair to dine? Go up/down stairs? Know where are feet are stepping? Dance? Get through a crowded room? Hang the dress in a closet?
For Red State girls: Milk a cow? Keep mud offa the gown bottom? Shoot from a prone position? Eat a barbecued baby beef rib?
I swan, I don`t know the answers, but ain`t too proud to ask…..

If you believe the western romance novels and western movies being a lady -ahem-you’d wonder the same thing– ‘specially the potty/personal thing. How’d day do dat??? peeeuuu!!
COL Jerry: “1.How does the woman in the blue gown …: Go potty? Get in/out of a car?
Same way they did back in the 1800s. (Except for the car thing. It was wagons then.) Ever see “Gone With the Wind”?
I’ve always suspected that women’s clothing designers are misogynists. Especially the guys (and it is guys, right?) who come up with 18″ platform shoes. (Putting 200 ft-lbs of torque on your ankles is really not a good thing.)
The two photos (and the clothes are always called “creations”, not “dresses”) show outfits that the average working woman might wear to the office. Or to the opera. Or on a dinner date.
“… light projected onto the dress.”
No creativity. No thinking outside the box. Dummies: put the lights inside. Got plenty of room.
That whole second dress could be made of fabric incorporating LCDs or OLEDs
The patterns could change like that canopy in Vegas. The images could move– a squadron of F-22 Raptors traveling from the viewers bottom left to the top right, for example.
Tank tops and shorts are the rule.

Is that last one, the flat chested blond, a he or she? Who knows in their world. – Paul
Who knows? Hell, in their world, it’s “who cares? – they’re interchangeable.”
(Now I’m the one feeling icky ….)

Back in the late 1980′s, I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Gaultier at a reception for the company I worked for. He seemed to be very intelligent, and very well spoken. But, at the same time came off as bat shit crazy! One of the ladies who worked in the French office said he was ALWAYS hanging around with some whacko idea. And that he is gay as a carnival!
