Good job, guys! Number one is the lie. This dress, which went up for sale on Net-A-Porter earlier today, is a magnificent piece from the Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 collection, the first that Sarah Burton designed for the house. The pagan-inspired dress is breathtaking, and so is the price$15,995. The site didn’t order a full run of sizesand we’re guessing that it bought only one or two in eachbut the fact that this silk-organza gown sold out so quickly is confounding.

Yes, it’s a work of art, but it’s not like you can hang it in your home on display. I don’t doubt that the couture-like craftsmanship of this dress warrants a pricetag akin to that of a small car, but where, pray tell, would you actually wear this?
