    excerpt from VOGUE

    In October Vogue I found the sentence which I don't understand. Could you help me to grasp the meaning?
    "But what better way to describe the vigor, audacity, and well ferocity of savage fur - in colour! - that, when tossed over a cocktail dress, takes a pretty miss to a wild thing"

    "takes a pretty miss" >> takes a pretty but not exciting girl

    "to a wild thing" >> and turns her into someone with attitude
