Who Wore it Better? See 13 Looks From Fashion Week and the Artworks They Uncannily Resemble
Christian Siriano Spring 2017 VS Beverly Semmes's Orange Urn (2005)

Arriving at a party to see someone else wearing an identical outfit is a glam nightmare. But arriving at a party to see your outfit match the art? That might be something to strive for. New York Fashion Week came to a close on Thursday, and we couldn't help but notice some familiar, suspiciously artful looks on the runways. Sure, some resembled traffic cones, golfers in the '80s, or Princess Sparkle from "My Little Pony" (if you don't know what we're talking about, just scroll down.) But they also looked a whole lot like some artworks we know. Here are 13 runway looks from Spring 2017, and their coordinating spirit animals artworks.
