Moschino McDonalds Dress
As much as it pains me to post on something this kitsch, curiosity got the better of me and I had to find out what you thought of Moschino's fast food fashion. Not even 24 hours after Jeremy Scott debuted his commercially flashy Moschino Fall/Winter 2014 collection, celebrities has snapped up this lurid ketchup red and mustard yellow sweater dress that bears an uncanny resemblance to that all famous fast food chain we find on every other city block. I never thought I'd see the day McDonalds became a high-ticket item on the fashion week menu.
1. Trend-loving Anna Dello Russo spared no time in nabbing the infamous Moschino McDonalds sweater dress, giving it sporty styling with lace-up Adidas heels, a striped knitted scarf and a $1265 quilted M insignia bag. My eyes will never forgive me for this.
2. British model Jourdan Dunn stepped out in the same Moschino FW14 sweater, toning it down with an oversized black furry coat, leather mini skirt, tote bag and buckled Oxfords.
3. South Korean model Soo Joo caught the attention of PFW paparazzi in the conspicuous wool-blend sweater dress, wearing hers with black tights, a backpack, sneakers and a pink beanie.
4. Katy Perry is no stranger to all things tongue-in-cheek, and she flavoured her recent trip to Japan with the popular McDonalds maiden look, pairing it with the Moschino golden arch logo bag, sheer black tights, red ankle-strap shoes and if that wasn't enough, she also added a hair bow. I'll have fries with my order Katy...thank you very much.
Polish model Natalia Siodmiak swaggered down the Moschino FW14 runway in this McDonalds monogrammed sweater and skirt, and just for the that max brash appeal, they even added matching shoes and giant yellow bauble earrings. I have no doubt that this sweater will follow in the footsteps of the Givenchy Bambi and Kenzo Tiger street style trends.
In case you have fallen into the trend trap, you can purchase this sweater dress for £492 or $935 from the Capsule Collection on Moschino.com, and to my surprise, it is selling out like Happy Meals. Why anyone would want to pay that much to look like a McDonalds employee is beyond me. In fact, even McDonalds staff have called the collection "inappropriate".
If I were forced to chose 'Who Wore It Better?', I would go with Jourdan Dunn, because at least she added some class to this Pop-trash-tic sweater dress. I would love to hear your thoughts on this Moschino McDonalds fad...Are You Lovin' It?
