British pop star FKA Twigs wore a dress which featured a tiny cartoon penis to the Met Gala, that has unsurprisingly got everyone talking.
The colourful dress was part of British designer Christopher Kane’s autumn/winter 2015 collection presented on the catwalk during London Fashion Week back on February.
Made from his “lovers lace”, the dress is the result of one of the sketches that Kane and his team drew. But rather than a one off, this was one of a number of pieces depicting a tangle of the human anatomy. He closed the show with a collection of similar dresses made of the same bold lace, named “electric orgasm”.
The 32-year-old designer is known for his bold sexy designs, and on occasion has brought a sexual undercurrent to his work. This dress is just one example of this.
However, the cartoon penis dress seems to join a current trend in the fashion world, with Tom Ford’s 18k carat gold penis necklace and Rick Owens’ autumn/winter 2015 show, which bared the male models’ private parts on the catwalk during Paris Fashion Week with clothing featuring strategically placed peepholes.
FKA Twigs has us talking, but her outfit joined a rather lengthy list of bizarre attire at the star-studded annual event, including the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker’s flames hat, Rihanna’s “omelette” gown and Solange’s “Fifty Pence” dress.
