We can appreciate the sculptured form of this Toni Maticevksi dress, but please not let lilac be next season's hottest colour.

    send them all to the rice paddies to get fit and strong .... then their legs will be shapely without ridiculous high heels

    How can anything be a "fail" in such a jumbled orgy of shallow self-expression?

    this looks like blue to me, not lilac. and what's with these so called 'journalist's snarky attitudes like their tastes reflect those of everyone else?

    'Please not let' this be the grammar 'journalists' use.

    I don't mind the dress as much as I mind the ridiculous head gear. Quite a few types like this were doing the rounds yesterday. Strange for Jen to get it wrong.
