I was hoping style.com's slideshow on Klimt would change my mind about the artist, but it actually just made me think that he really should not be taken as a fashion inspiration.

Adele Bloch-Bauer I (1907)

Christian Dior Haute Couture, Spring 2008

Yes, yes, I know it's haute couture... but the ready-to-wear clothing inspired by Klimt isn't much nicer.

Anna Sui

I will say, however, that this clutch is quite nice. Stunning, even.

Christian Lacroix

Obviously, someone likes this stuff, but it's just NOT my bag -- pun unintended.

All photos from style.com, of course.
