Would You Make a Vagina The Star of Your Wedding Day?

The following dress was made by Hazel Moore as part of her degree show for the Glasgow School of Art. I have to admit that when I saw the dress, I had no idea what to think.  When something makes me say huh, that is usually a clue that it might produce some interesting conversation.  So on that note, what statement do you think the dress makes?  Do you believe that the dress is feminist/womanist in its design?  Is it something you would consider wearing on your big day? And finally, we know that phallus images are ubiquitous and is that why when images of a vagina are shown they are understood to be shocking?
