Beauty Test Drive: The Perfect Polish From Jason Wu

Do Not Want: Blood-Stained Sweater

I'm all for eye-catching design, but I'd prefer that my clothing choices didn't lead to 911 calls from concerned passersby, like this Jason Wu sweater might: "Ummm, yeah, there's a woman in front of me in line at Starbucks, and she's obviously bleeding out, but she doesn't seem to notice ... yeah ... that's right…
