I am very "pro" bringing back getups like Lauren Velez' as loungewear - hostess pajamas, even. And I am quite pro discouraging them as red carpet wear. In a purely rhetorical sense, of course - obviously anyone should have the freedom to wear what she will, a reason I've always shied away from the construction "fashion crime" in any variation.

What say you: is Monique Coleman sporting separates - or a dress? And how does this effect your opinion? (I'm channeling those "discussion questions" at the back of a worthy paperback.)

Hmm. Monique Coleman... Separates, and I disapprove, for some reason I can't put my finger upon. Also, it looks like a spaghetti strap tank, but the straps kept falling because they were too long... so she chopped them off.

Also also... With the exception of Karimah Westbrook (belt and all - I love it)... "meh." Even over the top princess-swan = meh. And Nautica De La Cruz = "Mom made me pick this prom dress, she said 'No daughter of mine is going to look like a tramp in a dress I'M paying for, in pictures I'M paying for!'; I hate her."
