Sometimes I look at my mom's old clothes and wonder why shoulder pads were reduced to under the fabric. Anne Hathaway shows us what could have been.
Other uses for this look:
If you have a boyfriend who tends to fall asleep at formal functions, you have a nice dinosauresque spike to deter him from your shoulder.
If you are a fan of Gwar, it is great to find couture that reflects your musical taste.
You're sick of people looking at your cleavage, so you put your humps elsewhere.
