Lara Bingle In Louis Vuitton Fall 2011: Love It Or Leave It? (PHOTOS, POLL)

Brave is the woman who attempts runway looks in the real world. While we can't say we wear too much couture, we imagine it must be intimidating to put on the sleek, shiny outfits worn by toweringly tall, size 2 models.

But Lara Bingle, an Australian model and competitor on "Dancing With The Stars: Australia," got dressed up for last night's Louis Vuitton celebration in straight-off-the-runway Louis Vuitton from the Fall 2011 show (remember, the one with the cigarette-puffing Kate Moss?).

Attending the brand's store opening in Sydney with stylish Aussies like Miranda Kerr, Bingle wore a rather demure black short-sleeve sweater with a shiny red skirt to the knees.

While she, like the runway model, wore her hair tightly pulled back, the outfit looked a world's away from the original version. Does Lara's take on Louis Vuitton work -- or is this one ensemble that doesn't translate from runway to real life?

Quick Poll

Does this runway outfit translate to the real world?

SURE. She looks totally lovely.

NO WAY. If not worn by a beanpole model, the outfit just looks frumpy.
