Fashion Police: Beware the black-and-white sequined corset

2014-01-26 10:00

For the past few weeks, one item has dominated our red carpets and stages.

It is a black-and-white sequined corset that has been spotted on Thembi Seete, Pearl Modiadie and Kenyan songbird Victoria Kimani. The Fashion Police have some words to share?...

Lesley: Could it be that a department store has released this top en masse? I fail to understand its appeal. It looks ill-fitting and badly put together.

The layers overlap untidily. It should be avoided at all costs.

This is a bad case of She Stole My Look, which can easily be avoided. Now, ladies, AVOID!

Sdu: I’ve never been a fan of sequins. They remind me of fish scales. However, Modiadie runs away with the prize. It’s a bit too much with the crown and it takes me back to the festive season blinging away.

As for Thembi, she stole the whole look from Ariel, the Little Mermaid. She had better watch out for sea witch Ursula.

Paledi: Thembi started all the trouble looking bejewelled at the Drum Darlings. This corset does nothing for me. It’s overdesigned, and its proportions and structure are questionable.

It’s corset chaos. What I find disturbing is the peplum part, which is too long.

It’s costumey and unflattering.
