It isn’t often that assistant fashion editor Erica Milano and I team up with fashion advice, but neither of us could resist commenting on the outfit worn by singer Nicki Minaj at the Carolina Herrara show last month during Fashion Week in New York. We both agree that Nicki’s shirt can be summed up in four words: WHAT WAS SHE THINKING?

Hey, I’m all in favor of DIY. As the crafts editor of a woman’s magazine, my living depends on people wanting to make things for themselves, their family and friends, and their homes. However, even I wouldn’t suggest that any of our readers try this at home. And Erica suggests, should you be crazy enough to do so, only wear it out of the house on Halloween. (Hence, the reason we’ve waited until October to comment on this fashion faux pas.)

So readers, what do you think? We’re dying to hear your comments. Let us hear from you, and you're entered into the drawing for a book from Friday's guest author. -- Anastasia and Erica

Another stunning attire:


Thanks, Liz. Lady Gaga does tend to leave me speechless!

She actually looks like Barbie Doll--all plastic except the top.
