Obviously, I had to go with a Marc Jacobs today, right? While it was tempting to post something from his Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 collection (which is legendary in its 50s-inspiredness), I decided to feature this more recent charmer. From Mr. Jacobs's Resort 2011 show, this scalloped organza number is a mocha and cream delicacy.
I think the real triumph here is the combination of fabrics. I hope the remnants end up in Mood someday soon. (Very wishful thinking, I know.)
Hailee Steinfeld wore this dress recently, and Red Carpet Fashion Awards (an excellent blog, by the way), noted that this version is a modified version of the original (on the left below):
While I agree that the more modest version is great for Hailee, there is something I love about the resort original. In the smaller proportions, it almost reminds me of a 50s beach playsuit. What do you think?
