One of the biggest trends on the fall runways was a strong silhouette: It was goodbye to loosey goosey free flowing forms,and hello to a sense of superstructure that would make Richard Meier beam with pride.But I've seen a few celebs in the look lately and I don't know that it's working...and if Jessica (body-of-a-goddess) Alba can't pull it off,what hope is there for the rest of us?

Jessica Alba was the latest celeb to try out the trend--all I can say is,this looks like a whole lot of dress.I love the festive red and the fabulous accessories but something about this makes me think she's about to take off into space...

Diane Kruger also tried the trend out last week at the premiere of the film "Pour Elle." I'll say one thing for this dress--it certainly defines her waist!It has a late 50s/early 60s vibe to it (thinkMad Menor evenI Love Lucy) but I think it just may be a tad too severe.

Finally,we have Estelle at last month's MTV Europe Awards.Last time we discussed this dress,36% of you thought it was the evening's wackiest,and I pretty much have to agree.This gives new meaning to the word "hippy."

I loved superstructure when Nicolas Ghesquiere did it for Fall 2008 at Balenciaga,and I had a true appreciation for YSL and Jil Sander's abilities to recalibrate our eyes to a whole new silhouette,but maybe something is lost from the runway to the red carpet.What do you guys think about these super structured silhouettes?A Do or a Don't?
