I was discussing inappropriate gymwear with friends this week, and one mentioned spotting a girl working the cross trainer in a matching flannel tracksuit à la Juicy Couture.
Heave! Besides the obvious, velour tracksuits are hideous because the material has the same affect on me as cotton wool or nails across slate.
So what does Erin Fetherston turn up wearing to the Met Gala?

Aha. Look closely and it is Juicy’s hi shine velour. The gown is a sneak preview of what to expect from the new Erin-Juicy collaboration. I don’t quite know what to make of it on the red carpet. It’s a bit like when the ketchup on your fry-up runs into your baked beans. Not. quite. right.
But the Costume Institute Gala is all about the extravagance and being a little wacky and I give that accolade to M.I.A who wore a specially commissioned Alexander Wang for Gap piece. Unusual as it is, this sheer gold spiderweb of a frock is still toned down compared to her usual style. She’s one of the few who can pull it off and looks effing great in it.
