Karlie Kloss's dress is nice, although it appears to be in danger of slipping right off. Model Maryna Linchuk has a lot more support in a bustier and pencil skirt.

I know nothing about Neon Jungle so I watched their video for the song "Trouble" and they have a lot of fun, a lot of hair and a lot of energy. Go, Neon Jungle. Don't understand what the fuck you are wearing but in this song you all sing "I'm a Gemini" and so am I.

Model Hilary Rhoda in sheer belted floral with chain that reminds me of someone who would rather black the boots of success than enquire whose soul dangles from his watch-chain which would be embarrassing for both parties. Model Sigrid Agren in drapes.
