I have nothing against the whole celebrity designer circuit. Victoria Beckham’s collections get better every season. The Olsen’s Elizabeth and James label is a real breath of fresh air. Even Kate Moss’s collection for Topshop was groundbreaking in its own right. So when a new celeb designer comes along we should surely give them the benefit of the doubt and view their work with an open mind.
Step forward Dannii Minogue’s Project D collection. On the whole, her designs with business partner Tabitha Somerset Webb are quite good, apart from this V-neck tulle dress.
Dannii, I can forgive the dodgy early singing career, I can forgive the stint on Home and Away, but I cannot forgive this dress. I would feel like a tulle nightmare walking around in this – the metallic gold flowers, shiny cord and black beads just make it too fussy for my liking.
In general, I am pro-bows but this one is just too prissy and the high-collar reminds me of Princess Anne on a royal visit.
Sorry Dannii, love you on X Factor and you rock those M&S ads, but you would never get me in this dress.
