V_rolf_runway_2 (Details from the Viktor & Rolf Fall 2006 Collection)

Viktor & Rolf always have a fun and interesting take on fashion, even if some seasons it's not exactly wearable: Victorian-inspired chambermaid outfits with ruffled bedding attached; half outfits with the other half attached to the bolt of fabric from whence they sprung. This fall, however, it's a fashionista's lucky season as the pair came down on the side of wearable. This black & white tuxedo look couldn't be smarter; wear as is for work, and for flamboyant nights out, simply dress up matters with flashy tights & even a dramatic veil. 

If you pick up a version with french cuffs, have fun with the cufflinks by opting for vintage or something handcrafted. (Or, if you're in the mood to rock but the dress code dictates otherwise, try a skull & crossbones pair.) Throw on the season's must-have black platform pump - et, voila!
