Will it work in Washington?

For our fourth edition of our “Will it work in Washington?” take on New York Fashion week, we look to the fall 2012 collection of Prabal Gurung.

NO: Prabal Gurung’s past collections have included sharply tailored trousers that are Washington-ready and still offer punch. But you have to wonder what who he had in mind when designing this gold-embroidered gown with see-through skirt and boa-trimmed hem, accented by Amazon gold cuffs. A Saudi princess perhaps, a Vegas showgirl? Even a Potomac princess with a flawless body and high opinion of herself would balk. The Corcoran Ball? No way.

Would it work in Washington? Our bet: NO. Cast your vote in the poll below.

TIP: Forget about it; there’s no way to save this number.
