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.

"And yet, at times it's as ugly as anything out of Talbots Petites"
I say hey. I say hey! I say hey! Hey now! HEY!!
Much to our own chagrin, some of us dress THAT way
'Cause our vicious employers won't 'queath us our voices
And they unduly limit sartorial choices.
So we dress plain from Talbots, 'thout bow & 'thout twist;
And if then you can't deal, then instead ... you get THIS.
