One Dress Three Ways

Here it is finally, the Project Runway dress from Sarah Jessica Parker's line Bitten. I definitely like this dress, but it has some flaws. First, I think there is just way too much fabric. If I ever get pregnant I can wear this dress and no one will ever know. Second, the inner garment tag is sown directly onto the dress, so you can tell where the tag is attached if you're standing behind me. Third, on PR the dress looked like it was steal grey, but when I went to Barry and Steve's to pick it up, I realized that this grey was just black, bummer. Don't get me wrong, I love a little black dress, but it's important for me that my black dress make me feel sexy . . . this dress not so sexy. But I think this last flaw worked in my favor because I really like this maroon color. Another thing I love about this dress is it's versatility. I like how easy I can change the shape of the silhouette and make the dress look completely different. I'll definitely need to play with it some more to think of other wearable possibilities. And of course, I LOVE the pockets. Which style do you think looks best? (click to enlarge)

I like the first one! I think this would be great with a really awesome belt!

Absolutely like the first pic the best. The dress is just too overwhelming for you w/o having it cinched with a belt.

Simply dreadful on all three. Sorry guys its a thumbs down from me. There is NOTHING flattering about this garment. At what point does this enhance a womans figure? Have I missed something here?
