Sometimes we wish Net-a-Porter would just put the darn frocks on a real person. This Miu Miu Double Zip Dress just doesn't look as nice on that mannequin as it did on the runway. Now, we know that this could be the result of some post-fashion week fabrication adjustments. We also know that it might be more to do with Net-a-Porter's sample size, but, regardless, the charm is lost. On the runway this dress is a body skimming jewel-toned piece of perfection.
It makes the model look curvaceous and blends that old world silhouette with modern details a la the frock's hardware. What does it look like on e-commerce? It looks like a shift dress with neon sleeves. The product description reads, "exquisitely tailored" but, by the looks of it, it's a sack dress. To be honest we can't tell just where the problem lies. It's either the lack of, er, human being, holding the garment up or it's that the sample size is larger than the mannequins frame. Either way, we hope that the fashionistas buying this Miu Miu frock for $1,640 will know to check the proper runway exit. We're pretty sure in twenty years we will look back on these discrepancies and roll over onto our sides in a fit of laughter.
