Click “Like” if You Like this Facebook Dress

Facebook has taken over a lot of lives, and I mean that literally, in the past few years since it’s quick rise to fame. It’s not uncommon to find people feverishly posting photos via mobile and updating their status every other minute based on every single whim and thought that enters their head.
So what do you get when you cross up-and-coming designer Lana Bălana (link slightly NSFW) and Facebook? The Facebook dress, obviously. The detail or fit isn’t something to be impressed with, but it’s the whole idea that gets to me. We’ve all heard about girls who wear their hearts on their sleeve, so now it’s time for you to meet the girl with her Facebook profile on her, well, body.
This isn’t available for sale, as it was one of the pieces in Lana’s graduation collection. She relates the dress to the evolution of women, “from the initial stage of nudity up to her upgraded virtual level of being.”
Looks to me like women’s evolution has now come to the point of dresses made from cut-up tarpaulin sewn together with some plastic material to put it all together. But hey, that’s just me.
