Ready To Wear: Is it wise to dress merely with flattery in mind?

In the most elevated fashion circles it is not always deemed strictly stylish to wear a dress that is simply flattering. Witness the rise of Lady Gaga as a fashion plate par
excellence. Here is a woman who famously thinks nothing of wearing a strapless dress crafted out of raw meat or, more recently, carrying a life-size headless twin on her slender shoulders thus giving the Hunchback of Notre Dame a run for his money. Then there's the Rihanna school of fashion where the body is so sensational that, really, wearing anything at all seems nothing short of churlish.
Back on planet earth and we mere mortals might be forgiven for requiring a helping hand where a grand entrance is concerned. Kate Winslet, below, certainly feels that way. At the Paris premiere of Carnage she wore a Stella McCartney dress that rendered her already impressive curves on a par with those of Jessica Rabbit. It's a simple but highly effective formula. The front of the dress is red  prom dress and the back is black. Stand against a dark background, then, and the hourglass body of a 1950s fashion illustration is achieved.

The dress no doubt weighs in at a price but there are more than a few women out there who would argue it was worth it. Not since Roland Mouret's Galaxy, with its hi-tech underpinnings, and as worn by everyone from Victoria Beckham to Demi Moore, has a garment worked such magic on the female form. Anyone who loves fashion knows only too well that stepping out in head-to-toe Comme des Garcons will earn considerable brownie points with members of an impressively initiated tribe. They also understand, however, that if dressing to flaunt one's own considerable assets, a little black Azzedine Alaïa knit is likely to trump that. And aren't we lucky to have the choice. Unsurprisingly, on the red carpet, the latter motivation tends to dominate and the likes of Mouret, McCartney and, the aforementioned King of Cling himself, Alaïa, will be only too happy to oblige.

Dresses problems and reducing

Furman argues the case for remedial change well in his Brookings papers. A July 2007 paper he co-wrote with Rubin makes a powerful economic case for universal health care. The current system, he argued, is putting a strain on businesses, wages and jobs; it is adding to America’s Short Prom Dresses problems and reducing its competitiveness in global markets. An October 2007 online piece argued for cutting corporate tax rates while at the same time repealing the Alternative Minimum Tax to help middle-class taxpayers. An April 2008 column in Slate offered a sensible road map for fixing what Furman calculated was the $4 trillion impact of Bush’s tax and spending policies. He stressed honest budgeting, bipartisan efforts to cut the deficit and a presidential willingness to veto budget-busting proposals. Sensible stuff, but not exciting.
To make the repair job sound visionary, Obama is enlisting Rep. Rahm Emanuel, the best idea-packager the Democrats have. As a former adviser to President Clinton, Emanuel has been walking a tightrope for months, trying to keep faith with Hillary even as he recognized that Obama was a once-in-a-generation leader. Now he’s all Obama, all the time. Emanuel has argued that the Democrats need “A New Deal for the New Economy,” as he titled a March op-ed piece.
Emanuel takes the basic agenda – health care, Black Prom Dresses policy and tax reform – and dresses it up into a new social contract for the age of globalization. That’s the Democrats’ challenge now. They have the candidate, but do they have the ideas?
Japanese casual wear maker Uniqlo claims its shopping bags are made of polyethylene which can cut carbon dioxide emissions by 60 percent, compared to bags used in the past.
The new shopping bag doesn’t look different, but is Cheap Long Prom Dresses percent thinner than a regular bag and costs a little more. By June, 750 Uniqlo shops nationwide will use the greener bags. They will also be rolled out to most of their outlets overseas.
More fashion houses are increasingly producing clothes and bags made from eco-friendly materials. Ecomaco, launched in 2003, is one of them. The brand has been gaining a lot of media attention lately, for making its dresses and some of its bags from corn, bamboo, and leaves.
Ecomaco’s designer, Masako Oka, uses leftovers from kimonos and the hems of jeans in her creative designs. Some of her clothes are dyed using extracts from fruits, including grapes.
Based in Nagano, Ecomaco has set up shop  the prestigious Mitsukoshi department store in Nihonbashi and in a few other huge retailers.
Oka said she became eco-conscious back in 1994.
