Note to designers: When your bag-of-bones models look like two-ton-tillies marching down the runway, something's wrong. If the dress doesn't flatter the world's most gorgeous girls, there's no hope for the female population at large and someone should have edited it out of the collection. Here's a sampling of cringe-worthy wares that should have been left backstage (like Alexandre Herchcovitch's frilly frock pictured above).

Costello Tagliapietra get my award for most awkward show. Black leather and picnic prints? Fuchsia and mauve with suspenders? It was a parade of misfits from the misfits. But, as the consolation prize, I offer them the award for cutest design couple. I hope that makes them feel better.
