The victor was overwhelming: The mint-green Mischka Bagley Aqua Wonder dress. “Let this shimmery drape dress by Badgley Mischka float you away on a whimsical evening of fun,” advises the write-up on renttherunway.com.
That doesn’t mean there weren’t naysayers. Some of you felt strongly she should wear #1, the one-shoulder royal blue number and others felt one of the black strapless dresses was the way to go.
*I rarely do this and I’m sorry to be wielding my power in such a benevolent manner but I feel as if I have no choice. According to my gay card, the winner by a hot, steamy mile is number two – 2. Aqua Wonder Dress by Mischka Badgley which is actually Badgley Mischka. — FBDC’s Matt Dornic
*Hands down the Aqua Wonder dress because a) the mix of greens and blues is beautiful and b) it’s spectacularly named the “Aqua Wonder” dress. I loved the royal blue, but wearing a dress that falls at the top of your thigh would be uncomfortable around bosses. — BR
*#4 Strapless black. I like that the color is more conservative. And there’s something about a dress with like material only on one shoulder (I have no idea if I’m describing this right) that’s weird to me. The feathers were my second choice. I guess because I’m stuck on this black dress thing. — Alec Jacobs, FBDC intern
*Totally #1 – navy is so in this spring, a la Kate Middleton’s engagement announcement dress. Pls see if you can also outfit Ms. Schwab with the Lady Di engagement ring replica.
*I vote @NikkiSchwab dons #2- it would be stunning w her hair & eye color, & dif in a sea of black.
*ooo! [referring to the Aqua Wonder dress]
*I vote for 1., because no. 2 looks like she’s being given away as a child bride in Game of Thrones and nos. 3 and 4 look like she just discovered Hot Topic
*I vote number 2 unless number 1 becomes available again. I am one of her best friends from high school and I know that she would likely pick the style of number 2. I think the color of number one is best for her, but number 2 will be quit elegant and appropriate for this event!
*Which dress should Nikki wear to the WHCD? That’s easy: the cheapest one (times are hard). And hopefully the cheapest one isn’t the Aqua Wonder dress because I don’t like the color.
*Tell Nikki to wear #1. It will emphasize her most.
*I vote for #3 – Nikki would look best in BLUE! (Dear reader: #3 was the black feathers.)
