Racecar-Inspired Jumpsuit On the Runway

Let's get one thing straight: everyone looked beautiful, glamourous, and sexy at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show–almost beyond the human capacity for such. Considering the fact that this fantastical runway strut isn't really about presenting practical looks a girl can wear on the street while dashing out to the deli to buy seltzer, it seems a tad odd to put even the most out-there runway outfits under scrutiny. But that's our job, and this black-and-white checkered jumpsuit (equal parts Wonder Woman (that's a plus), Barbarella–note: we love Barbarella– racecar driver, and '70s glam) demanded a second look.

Worn with enviable finesse by the stunning Barbara Fialho, it's sexy, stylized, and creates a fantasy narrative with just one glance. But costume appeal aside, does it belong in a fashion show?
