Turkish Evening Wear

Generally speaking, I love Turkish fashion, I really do. But sometimes, things go a bit too far. I like most of the dresses here, but no. 2 and 3 are just disasters. The colours used in the second dress are very unflattering, and don't work well for an evening gown. I don't think I need to say much about dress 3 - except that it looks a mess the way the 3 colours are combined, and the excessively cake-like skirt. I do love the purples and reds in the other dresses though:

They are way over the top, this is why I don't even try to do the gown look.

I'm Turkish myself but I'm not very into these dresses. I think 'meringue'-like skirts are only for the bride on her wedding day. In other colours than white (or ivory), they just look too costumey indeed. I do like the purple dress (no5), it has a very Ottoman feel to it.

I think four has a gorgeous color, and five would make a nice wedding outfit, actually, it's really elegant--but I agree with you on 2 and 3.

The red dress reminds me of 18 and 19th century styles in Europe and Russia (especially the head thing)
