Sometimes when one looks at couture, there are moments when one thinks "Am I crazy, or is this really, really hideous?" Yes, everyone involved may have a highly-sophisticated fashion sensibility. Sure, people will pay thousands of dollars for these creations. And yet, at times it's as ugly as anything out of Talbots Petites. I had such a moment when looking at the images from Riccardo Tisci's couture collection for Givenchy, which I found so patently absurd that there was nothing for it but to voice my bafflement in the immortal words of Theodore Geisel.
