If she doesn't scare you, no evil thing will.

Is it just us or has Alexander Mqueen been watching 101 Dalmations? His display of elegant pencil skirts, eccentric tailoring and his 101 variations on dogstooth would definateley not look out of place in the wardrobe of deliciuosly evil villain Cruella De Vil.

This is not a bad thing at all, in fact we have come to the conclusion that Cruella is probably the best dressed Disney villian, if not character, of all time. What do you think? Having said that I wouldn't mind owning Cinderella's ball gown and Princess Jasmines crop top is very this season!

But in terms of what I would most want to wear down the street I'm going to have to go with Cruella, besides, fur looks set to be big next season and she's got a lot of it! But despite our admiration of her wardrobe though, what we're hoping is not so big next season is Dogstooth and while it's unlikeley, Mqueen wasn't the only show to display it. Here it is at Preen and Moschino:

We love it in combination with Mqueens exciting structural tailoring but would honestly rather walk down the street with an umbrella on our heads (see below) than a Dogtooth coat on - in real life it ends up looking uninteresting. But who knows? By November we could be head to toe in the stuff!

P.s. 3 more exams and we're officially all yours. Betwixtandbetweenxxx


  1. haha, princess jasmine's crop top - definitely. and i surely dreamed of cinderella's gown when i was young (and sleeping beauty's... etc)

    but yes, in hindsight, cruella is the best... seriously amazing furs, haha. but oh so un-pc! but i don't reckon cruella or mcqueen is very bothered :P

    thanks for your comment! haha I too was going to cut one of my tops but didn't have the guts! haha.

    good luck!

  3. Cruella De Vil chic?! Awesome. :)
    I hope he doesn't use real dalmations though! Lol.
    My best friend and I started a new fashion blog. I hope you check us out.

  4. very cruella. this remind me of the excessive usage of Monroe's image in D&G collection in 2009 fall.
