What's Up With That? Skirts As Dresses

Posted on

Sometimes a photo does inspire at least 1000 words. The blogosphere was buzzing over Keira Knightley’s recent outfit donned during a grocery- shopping excursion with perma-grunge boyfriend Rupert Friend. It’s probably not a cut up pillowcase (as mentioned on Go Fug Yourself ) or a tucked up sheet (as mentioned on PopSugar ). My guess is that it’s a skirt doing double duty as a strapless sundress, a look seen on multi-tasking NYC fashionistas. Barring sudden movements or stiff breezes, the belt-as-bra is holding up this concoction for dear life. When most starlets wear a dress once and banish it to the back of the closet forever, you have to at least admire Keira’s desire to get the max out of her wardrobe. — Melisssa Liebling-Goldberg
