I like the "Animal" dress -- hilarious. But I'll probably just stick to my vintage Moschino jacket with the lapel ladies.

This has to be one of my favorite trends. I am obsessed with the Warhol-like interpretation of portraits on clothing. Jean-Charles de Castelbajac is like the new master to me. The Michael Jackson look is incredible. I like the DSquared2 look and Dolce & Gabbana took it to another level. Chanel Iman looks so adorable as well. I've designed some James Dean and Audrey hepburn stuff that is so cool and i print them locally at an Atlanta design studio...I like one of a kinds lol

I loved that Marilyn dress, but this is my first time seeing the Michael Jackson dress. That is Michael Jackson right? Or at least that's how I remember him. :)

D&G and Dolce & Gabbana took about face seriously! I think that's the most exposure Marilyn's ever gotten!
