Why do we love whore-couture?

‘Why are you dressed like a prostitute?’ Made In Chelsea star Lucy Watson quizzed Victoria. Clearly meant as an insult, Victoria just shrugged the question off and sauntered away.

It makes me question why a well-educated, excruciatingly rich woman, who has a fashion designer as one of her besties, wears clothes more suited to Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman?

As someone who shunned the Princess Bubblegum look at her own school prom (I opted for a red cocktail dress with clear glass heels), I honestly believe it has a whole lot less to do with sex than you might think. Flashing the flesh and working ‘whore-couture’, for me is about freedom. Freedom to wear whatever the hell I like. The anarchist in me enjoys sticking two fingers up to polite society sometimes. This style doesn’t suit everyone but for all the rule-breakers and risk-takers out there…. this edit is for you.

    I once heard that (hot) couture was a way for French women to flaunt their culture in the face of their Nazi controllers during the occupation. (Could be wrong, though.)
