The dress of the season: the little white dress

24 May

I’ve already blogged about the gorgeous white, lacy Dolce & Gabbana dress which appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris’ April cover, but it seems that this dress is a favourite with editors as it’s scored it’s fourth cover slot! It’s worn by Constance Jablonski on the cover of this month’s Greek Vogue and it has already been seen on Spanish and German Vogue too. I can certainly see the appeal, the LWD should be a wardrobe staple for summer and this particular one is so versatile as it’s both sweet and sexy at the same. I’m not actually a fan of the cover, it’s very summery but Gisele shows the dress off much better on the Vogue Paris cover.

Surprisingly, the high street has been a little slow to pick up on this super dress, I’ve scoured tons of websites and have yet to find something which perfectly captures the essence of the gorgeous D&G version. I’ve found some pretty sweet LWDs, the Topshop Boutique version is probably the closest to the Dolce vesion as it’s sheer with embroidery over the top but my favourite is actually the Monsoon Fusion dress.

Spring/Summer 2011 campaigns part I

30 Dec

With all of the shops clearing out all of the old AW10 stock and moving in transitional pieces already, it seems like a good time to look forward to the gorgeous campaigns which will grace our magazines in the coming months. The campaigns are very different, don’t you think? Givenchy is my favourite, the image is so striking and powerful. What’s your favourite?
