Things that Manolo the Manolo Laugh: Bright Nude Illusion Gown from Paula Raia

Paula Raia Bright Nude Illusion Gown

Nutley High School, Class of 2012: Voted Most Likely to Be Mob Goomah

Manolo says, to be more specific, the $5,000, orange-colored, hoochie-mama prom dress of your nightmares. Presumably, the “illusion” in the name of the dress is the reference to the belief on the part of the wearer that she is the person of stylishness.

    For the cost of this thing, I would expect that the panel would actually be floating due to magic rather than sheer nylon.

    …and not apparently a survivor of the latest famine. Poor girl, she needs a sandwich in addition to a prettier dress.

    Do know what is tragic …

    It could have been a beautiful dress. When you look at in detail the fabric and sewing are flawless on the “skirt” section of the dress. Once again a designer over designing and trying to hard.

    The crystal white pant suit looks something designed for Mrs Gumby to wear on the red carpet at the cartoon awards.
