The Best and Worst Evening Gowns of 2012


It must be nice to live an evening-gown life. Especially if you were uber-uber-rich, and could spend half the year flying from one fashion centre to another, whiling away the days in couture shops. Or, if you were a good enough customer, they’d bring the very latest photos and sketches, even actual dresses, to wherever you were.

“Karl! Dahling! I need something FABULOUS for the Versailles party! … Yes, the one this weekend! …  First fitting day after tomorrow? Oh, I knew you wouldn’t let me down!”

The last (only) time I had evening dresses was university, for the formals. Big white skirt with a little chocolate-brown cashmere halter sweater. Black velvet with a V-neck and a cape on the shoulders. Pink-y grey velvet with long tight sleeves.

The closest a lot of us get to evening gowns is poring over what the Gwyneths and Beyonces and Giselles of the world wear on runways and red carpets.
