the little black dress

is the fashion staple in any woman's wardrobe. infact she probably has two or three of them or possibly even more. victoria beckham aka posh spice probably wears nothing but if the running joke in Spiceworld is to believed.

an interesting experiment was done recently at Milan Fashion Week, a dress made entirely of garbage bags or as they call them in Britian 'bin liners' was worn by Vogue TV presenter Louise Roe as part of a challenge by the daily mail newspaper. she made it herself with 3 dollars for 20 extra strong garbage bags - which is far cheaper than the £40,000 dresses at Harrods.

did she pull it off ? read the entire article here

oh and the article does go onto explain precisely how to mak your own dress like the one worn in the dare.

Reminds me a lot of the Industrial Nation spread from 98 that was all that sort of clothing.

wow that was really brave of her, i would never have guessed it was a bin liner dress if it hadn't been pointed out.

and also this quote in the article 'some "icons" (particularly those with cropped peroxide hair who have just moved to LA) shouldn't be allowed to spend any money at all in designer shops.' I think there referring to our miss Victoria Beckham here ouch!
