Nordstrom ad for $740 gown mocked as 'murder dress' by fashion critics

Murder, she wore.

Fashionistas are mocking a dress being offered at Nordstrom, likening its color to that of a medical gown and noting that its attached red leather gloves look more suited for surgery. Because of this, some critics have even dubbed it the “murder dress.”

The “Gloved Double Satin Bolero,” made by designer Meryll Rogge, features an A-line baby blue satin gown with oversized puff sleeves, punctuated with a bright red cape that’s fitted with lambskin leather gloves. And if the getup doesn’t exactly scream criminal, the $740 price tag just might, at least according to some shoppers.

Nordstrom’s website describes the look as evoking “the golden era of Hollywood,” but some fashion critics are saying it’s pure horror.

“What’s with the $740 murder dress @Nordstrom? Odd ad targeting,” one user tweeted. 

Others noted the "killer style" resembled an actual serial killer.

"Today Nordstrom recommended this. For $740 I can look like ... Dexter? In a fancy gown?" 

Another critic referenced “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” upon seeing an ad for the dress.

“Is it just me or does the model in this Nordstrom ad look a little like she’s just made a man in seven days and she’s ready to show him off to the Transylvanian convention[?]” the user quipped.
