As the old truism goes, there are women who dress for women (Katherine), and there are women who dress for men (Hillary). While most fashion-forward females fall into the former category, we at WhoWhatWear thought it would be interesting to periodically ask an average Joe (or in this case, Todd, 38, self-proclaimed grease monkey read: purveyor of cars) to comment on various runway looks. The only information we gave today¬'s test subject was not to judge the model¬--neither face nor figure¬--only the clothes. The result? A brutal guide to what men really think about your carefully cultivated outfits. The responses are sometimes spot-on, sometimes scary, and always amusing.
Look 1. BCBG Fall 2006
¬"A winner. Slutty, yet subtle. Has the appearance of low maintenance. Won't tear if you rip it off.¬"
Look 2. Chloe Fall 2006
¬"The bride of the Michelin Man. The potential to be hiding extra lbs. is high. Not so good.¬"
Look 3. Dries Van Noten Fall 2006
¬"Definitely a sleeper. First glance is ¬"not so much,¬" but the second glance is a resounding, ¬"I want to do you in the library stacks.¬"
Look 4. Celine Fall 2006.
¬"This is the high-maintenance, more expensive older sister of Look 1. She is wearing this because it is considered fashionable, not because she wants to throw down.¬"
