Be our guest, Jeremy Scott

I've always thought Jeremy Scott's collections were ridiculous tacky, and this time my opinion still hasn't changed. Still, I love Jeremy Scott for the way he creates amusing travesties out of fashion, from waifish models in ice cream sundae suits to greasy grime smeared against glistening skin.

For Fall 2008, he seems to be channeling Beauty and the Beast -- no, not Belle's gorgeous marigold ball gown, but rather the exceedingly charming ensemble of household items: Cogsworth, Lumiere, Babette, and Belle's Wardrobe. I grew up watching Disney movies (rainy days were reserved for Snow White), so I'm very pleased with the ludicrous though somewhat sexualized designs. Exaggeration and gaudiness is blatant as usual, but I actually think it's adorable that he chose to base his designs off of household items, especially in regards one of the best Disney movies of all time.

Jeremy Scott proves that inspiration can be literal, and sometimes a little childish.
