Dita von Teese's Sheer Dress: Oui ou Non?

I came across this photo of her vintageness, Dita von Teese today, wearing a sheer black Jean Paul Gautier... thing. I've extolled her virtues before, in a piece on burlesque-esque style, but what do you think of this?

While my fashion sense tends to be a bit conservative (by which I mean I like my knickers covered up, thanks), I actually kind of find myself liking this a lot. Not that I think I'll be stepping out in it anytime soon - I'll be sticking to dresses that give the illusion of being sheer instead. But it's different, it's weird, it errs on the side of fetishwear, yet somehow manages to look bizarrely classy at the same time. Thumbs up, Mr. Gaultier.
