I saw this picture at the end of the runway Valentino slide show. I was completely amazed I guess these people don't actually sew or this pic did not go with the slide show. I hate what I have on today but it is 10 times better than the fit on this lady

Although it appears to be a bit see-thru, I don't actually see a fit problem.

Oh my! A good bra and an FBA would do a lot to make that top look better. Also, she seems to be high waisted(that's where her pants are), a jacket would have been a nice touch to make all that "blend".

This was the last slide to a really awesome fashion show is what got me. She would have known about things like that. But as they explained to us in Project Runway last year fashion work does not automatically equal seamstress work. However, if you deal in fashion I would expect one to kind of know what they look good in. And how to get clothing that fits.

Oops! I think that blouse went in the donation pile when she got home.

Goes to show, even fashion designers have issues.

The only thing wrong with the woman's blouse is that she doesn't have a button placed at the level of her bustpoint so it's gaping.
The man's jacket is too small and too big at the same time with his sleeves being too long and too tight.

My first thought was, I'm not a style guru, is this bust gaposis a design feature? Poor girl, when she sees this photo she will die a thousand deaths.
