NYFW Redux: Skinny Minis

Minidresses are here to stay. And will continue to make me wish that I had legs like a chihuahua, the kind that are PERFECT for wearing these thigh-grazing fashions. Straight men should really be loving these right about now too. Thankfully, we've moved on from the extreme body-consciousness that we were seeing in past seasons, in a movement led by the likes of Herve Leger and Balmain. And they're not all bandage-y or sequined up the wazoo. Although Max Azria might be taking his Herve Leger duties too seriously, his line for BCBG (pictured above) looked eerily similar to early Leger.

There is a way you can retain a modicum of propriety should you need to venture out into the real world -- for example, in slinky draped jersey by Wayne, or the structured and folded Jeremy Laing. For those of you who do have the body to do it, though, Carlos Miele has some great and not-boring sassy little numbers. Continuing down below: Cushnie et Ochs' orange sherbet dress uses clever draping to hide figure flaws; but the white leaves nothing to hide; and Doo.Ri's cobalt confection works thanks to a voluminous silhouette that will set off mile-long legs.
