We thought it was weird when we first saw a sort of body contour look at the Miu Miu Fall 08 show. But when we saw it again at McQueen's Resort 09, we were kind of frightened: is this a trend we're going to have to get used to? Putting aside the question of wearability for a moment, the outfits have the potential to make you look like you instantly dropped ten pounds - Or maybe that's only the case on the models. Either way, the clothes do offer a pretty awesomely slimming optical illusion. However, as Natalie put it, we're not sure we'd want to wear something that outlines our uterus. And the contours do seem to mimic a skeleton rather than an actual body (which may indicate a whole lot about the fashion industry, but that's a whole other conversation). But sticking to the issues, could this be doable for daily life? Or even sometimes nightlife? Or is this just another catwalk craze, one that kind of looks like a cross between a cat woman and a speed skater skinsuit? -- HAYLEY PHELAN
