The runway version of this Roksanda dress came with a cape, which ballooned out behind the model in a way that gave it all an appealing shape. It’s more sophisticated to me than this adaptation, with the puffy sleeves and the black ties. Without the cape, the purple also looks more like a paint spill than a nifty feature. I know it SOUNDS like I have landed fully in the “fug” column here, but I don’t know if this really qualifies as expressly terrible for me, so much as… not as good as I wanted it to be, and something I like even less the more I compare it to the original vision. Kind of like that Twin Peaks reboot. The original DNA couldn’t be topped.

Your turn!
