Whatever floats your boat. I love Marc Jacobs. He's not afraid to be himself.

He wore the black lace number at a Metropolitan Museum Gala in New York and blew the garters off everyone there.

Looks like the poor guy can only afford one pair of shoes though. Would have loved to see some color on his feet with the pink number.

Yeah, I'm not liking the pilgrim shoes. They remind me of that urban legend back when I was in Jr. High: seems like every school had a teacher who had been fired for wearing mirror buckles on his shoes so he could look up girl's dresses. Yes. We all had to wear dresses back then.

Marc needs a slip under that pink number.

It's only a matter of time before guys reclaim dresses. They've worn them throughout history, and there's nothing hotter than a man in a kilt. Once they realize how comfortable skirts and dresses can be, I think we'll see a lot of guys with this look.

Actually, recently I saw photos from a party my sister went to where several of the guys were wearing skirts. Not a cross-dressing thing, but kind of a counter-culture thing.

I agree!

Marc Jacobs in the man dress - blech! Sorry I think it's ugly.

I'm not sure about the socks. Perhaps leggings? The socks remind me of the socks-with-sandals look, which I think is really daggy.

Don't Scots get really offended if you call their kilt a skirt?

I don't see men going the dress route. I get the designer thing, but I personally couldn't take a guy in a dress seriously. As my 19 year old nephew just told me after shuddering: it will be over his dead body he puts on a dress.

I like him the black dress variations, but the pink combo looks really bad. Kind of like he put on his sister's polo shirt dress. Maybe it is just too much bright contrasty color for his dark looks.

Well, these are three predictions I got wrong:

1) Nobody in their right mind will BUY BOTTLED WATER.

2) You'll NEVER get guys to use hair spray

3) I'll NEVER wear elastic-waist pants.
