Isabel Lucas Attempts Christian Dior Runway Look In Real Life (PHOTOS)

Sometimes an item of clothing translates beautifully from the runway to real life. (See: Jennifer Lawrence in that gorgeous Dior.)

Other times, something is lost in translation. (See: this.) Isabel Lucas, an Australian actress who often pops up at fashion events, decided to be daring at the opening of Christian Dior's new Sydney store on Wednesday, wearing a Christian Dior dress right off the Spring 2013 runway.

When it walked down Raf Simons' catwalk in September, the shimmery striped dress seemed airy and refreshingly avant garde. But put the layered creation in front of a few paparazzi flashbulbs and it was a whole other story. Something about the dress on Lucas, with her long hair and tan Aussie skin, just didn't feel right... literally. That material seems so itchy, right?

The dress could also use a good steam, but that's neither here nor there.

Check out the Dior look below. Does this dress work off the runway?
