Rad or Bad: Mean Girls, Gone Wild! Are Over-the-Shirt Pasties Over the Top?

From the sparkles and bandeaus at Ungaro this season to the Playboy-esque bunny ears in fall '09's Louis Vuitton collection, the Mean Girls references keep popping up, and we can't help but feel like there's some designer movie-club that we don't know about. Our favorite of the chick-flick inspired looks has to be the strategically cut-out tops and over-the-shirt pasties that we saw at House of Holland. We're sure Janis and Damien would have been horrified to see the reach of Regina George's sartorial influence, but we're getting a good chuckle out of the titillating trend. So, are the cut-outs fabulous, or are they just evil?
