Kristin Cavallari Models A Glass Bikini

It’s less than a year before Kristin Cavallari’s wedding (she’s officially set the date for July 7, 2012!), and while she’s been doing the typical bride-to-be things (like working out and tanning, obvs), she was spotted on Diesel’s runway last night wearing a bikini covered in SHARDS OF GLASS. We give the ex-Hillsie props for daring to wear such a revealing (and scary) SKYY Vodka-inspired one-shoulder suit during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim in Miami.

Plus, between registering for sausage stuffer kits and enameled crab crackers (IS THAT WHAT SHE SAID? ahahahaha, sorry) at Williams-Sonoma (cue the horrible flashbacks to Kim Kardashian’s wedding registry) and designing shoes, you’d think KCav would be grabbing some R&R, but NOPE! She’s showin’ off that hot bod and WORKING. Kristen’s husband-to-be Jay Cutler is a lucky guy. But have you guys noticed something about this suit? One shoulder…colored pieces of glass dangling from flexible fabric…it all seems a little familiar….

OK, we’re not crazy. We’re not comparing a bikini to a dazzling and painstakingly constructed, unimpeachably brilliant Alexander McQueen Spring /Summer 2001 glass “medical slides” dress. Well, not entirely anyway. It is just that we are reminded, is all. The dangling glass pieces are more jagged on Kristin’s suit, but it’s notable how both McQueen AND Diesel opted for an asymmetrical shoulder for the silhouette. Now if KCav deigned to wear McQueen down the aisle, THEN we want points for having whispered that premonition into the universe. POINTS.
