Supermodel Elle MacPherson is the latest style maven to wear Alessandra Rich. She rocked a long black gown with puffed polka dot sleeves and a sexy cutout back from the Spring 2012 collection at the 2011 Harper’s Bazaar Women of the Year Awards in London.
She accessorized with a small gold minaudiere and Jimmy Choo’s Flaxman Sandals ($995). Elle definitely showed us just why she is a supermodel with this flawless look. I do wish that she would have pulled her hair into a ponytail or a chignon to show off the back of the dress, but it was still an amazing ensemble.
With the holiday season upon us, gowns are a necessity for formal occasions. Here are three amazing black gowns for under $500 that will help you to look chic at any event in the coming months.
There aren’t many things more perfect for the holidays than velvet. Aidan Mattox’s Strapless Gown ($440) combines a velvet bodice with bugle bead embroidery and an amazing tulle skirt, truly allowing its wearer to look like a princess. Sheer fabric done in a subtle way is a surefire way to be sexy without trying too hard. I have a feeling that Holy Tee’s Abbey Lee Gown ($290) was inspired by Abbey Lee Kershaw and it definitely oozes her effortless sex appeal. I can totally see her wearing it! BCBGMAXAZRIA makes some of the best dresses in the industry. The Tasha Strapless Dress ($398) is completely glamorous and will definitely start many a conversation.
