Usually, the extreme high-fashion looks sent down the runway are just for dramatic effect and a more wearable version is what actually hits the stores.
But last night, the Balmain dress Sienna Miller wore in NYC for the after-party for the Broadway opening of her play “After Miss Julie” was shortened to a dangerously unwearable length compared to the original dress Carmen Kass modeled
at Balmain Spring 2010 show in Paris.
Most of Balmain designer Christophe Decarnin’s rock-and-roll-luxe creations are way too wild (and outrageously expensive) to wear anywhere except the red carpet, but Kass’ dress looked downright demure compared to the altered version Miller wore out last night.
Since a simple sequin LBD from Balmain is currently selling for $13,000 on NetaPorter.com, will Sienna be requesting a discount on her shortened style?
