More white lace. I profiled Beyoncé, Sarah Jessica Parker and Natalia Vodianova taking on white lace and feather dresses in my trend alert post. There’s a new celebrity who tried it out at the Raisa Gorbachev Foundation Party in London, right alongside Natalia: Rosario Dawson.
Rosario looked gorgeous wearing a Lace and Pleated Jersey Twill Gown from Alessandra Rich’s Fall 2011 collection. She accessorized with red Suede Daffodil Pumps ($995) from Christian Louboutin and a fiery red lip. I love seeing her on the red carpet and quite frankly, it doesn’t happen for me enough. I would love to see her in more looks like this. Rosario is also working in another huge trend for the season with a thigh-high slit, showing off her toned legs.
I am a huge fan of Alessandra Rich’s designs and I am so thrilled that her brand continues to be a favorite for the fashionable set. It is a clear example of the fact that a woman can be covered and can still be sexy. Alessandra’s inspiration for the Fall 2011 “catéchiste” collection was to channel ultimate beauty and femininity in timeless and simple silhouettes. Her use of lace is kind of a tease and it only shows a hint of skin: totally seductive. Rosario wore the dress much like Alessandra styled it for the runway, with a cherry red lip.
Alessandra Rich’s Lace and Pleated Jersey Twill Gown retails for $2885 . Visit www.net-a-porter.com to purchase and see the dress on the runway below.
