There's been a bit of debate in the past about whether or not fashion is considered art. But, instead of making a case for one or the other, we'll offer another suggestion: Start treating your fashion like an art gallery.
We're coining this look, as seen on actress Elena Lyadova at Cannes this past week, the gallery-wall outfit. While bold or graphic designs have always been a welcome part of our wardrobes, this more-literal approach to artwork lets a print — in this case, a scene that brings to mind Dalí's deserts — hang from your person as if on display at the MoMA. And, the Russian actress only makes a stronger case for this art-as-clothing trend with her spaghetti-thin straps that suggest they're holding up the frame (which is actually a Dior pre-fall '14 dress).
Lyadova and her portable painting are in good company. The gallery-wall outfit was also seen on Jennifer Lawrence earlier this week as well as on Kim Kardashian, although in a smaller scale. Unfortunately, this trend does not quite settle the score for whether or not clothing itself belongs on display in a museum. But, should you want to carry around a mini-exhibit with you at all times, perhaps this is the place to start.
