Bag Lady

img_9429as.jpgSometimes I think I’m pretty creative…and then I see Natalie Portman’s stunt double wearing a sleeveless, V-neck, cropped, side-tie top that she improvised on the spot from a freakin’ trash bag…and I realize that I actually have quite a ways to go. I mean look at the fit and the shoulders on this – the shoulders are perfect. Didn’t Gareth Pugh show something very similar to this on the runway for spring/summer ’08?! I’ve heard my British friends describe someone attractive and say, “Oh, she’d look great even if she were wearing a bin liner.” Until now I always thought that was just a figure of speech.
