A Ball Gown Girl or a Cocktail Dress Girl?

I instgrammed this photo of a colored lace ball gown by Valentino a few hours ago, and one follower raised an interesting point, she was like "It's gorgeous but not anyone can pull it off." There's a lot of truth in her statement. Do I love ball gowns? hmm.. it depends on the design. Would I wear one? Well, highly unlikely, maybe if I was  bride or sister of the bride? A tall one too. The one featured here by Valentino is pretty, but I wouldn't be able to pull it off, unless I wear a pair of super platform heels with it, and that would never happen.

What about you? Which shape would you go for if you ever get invited to a wedding?
