Tango Dress, or Attacked by a Wild Animal?

Welcome to another edition of "Tango Dress, or Attacked by a Wild Animal?". I'm your host, La Planchadora, and here with us today is this unfortunate contestant:

Is she the victim of a terrible knitting accident, or has the camera caught her in a vulnerable moment as she reaches, still disbelieving, for the puma that has clawed her dress to ribbons?

You make the call.

Genuine tango lovers wouldn't be caught dead in that dress - it seems designed for those who are more into performance showy stuff than the real thing. Reminds me of when we used to live in the countryside, we used to make fun of the city folks showing up at the ski hills in their designer snowsuits but couldn't ski worth a damn. Same thing can be applied here.

Oh...believe me, you will have loads of things to say about the outfits when you get down here. I wish I had the balls to take some photos for you. Not only can you say it is tourists dress badly, but the locals as well.
I do covet a dress with fringe, but it is the one Nini high kicking legs wears in the ´Roxanne´ tango dancing scene in Moulin Rouge. I want that dress!
