The week in dresses

By Carla Challis

The shade: Electric Blue
When the Duchess of Cambridge and Blake Lively are both spotted wearing the same shade of blue, you know it’s a colour you’ve got to get on board with. Flattering to every skin tone under the sun, it’s an edgier alternative to tangerine or neon pink and much more wearable – heck, you can even break the cardinal sin of no black and blue with this nifty shade. For a real moment, team with complimentary dove grey or sherbet peach.

The shape: Two for one
It’s not quite your regular BOGOF deal you’ll find in your local supermarket, but it’s close. The smartest girls are using their sartorial style to get two for the price of one with a skirt and top combi. If, like Marion Cottilard you like the look of a pencil skirt and top, this is a much easier way to achieve it as you benefit from the clean lines a dress provides whilst creating the illusion of separate pieces. Or make like Fan Bing Bing and choose an overlay dress for a cool, matching look.

The show: Anne Hathaway
This girl doesn’t let a little thing like a necessary pixie crop (which she apparently cried over when being cut) stop her from giving good dress. On the promo trail for her new movie The Dark Knight, Anne Hathaway has chosen a mix of girly yet contemporary gowns, from the Grecian inspired plunging Prabal Gurung to the stunning sixties shimmer Gucci. Our favourite though, by far, is the cute and cool gingham Stella McCartney cut-out – it complements her crop to the bone.

: On Show
The details: Mid-driff flashing made a comeback last year with crop tops aplenty, but it’s been taken up a level to red carpet status with cut-out dresses, lace peep holes and subtle slashes at the waist. Perhaps the most dramatic was Sarah Jessica Parker’s 2005 Louis Vuitton lace peplum at Paris Fashion Week, a Carrie-esque dress if ever we saw one; over at the Fun and Fearless Cosmopolitan party, Dakota Fanning rocked her icy silver Miu Miu, showing just a slice of mid-driff; and Stacey Kiebler has it, so she flaunted it in a deep teal dress.

The trend: LBD
The details: Karlie Kloss, Poppy Delevigne and Cameron Diaz all took to their trusty LBD’s this week, with Karlie’s cut-out and Poppy’s thigh-slit maxi making their mark at the Marc Jacobs Exhibition in Paris and Cameron Diaz played it safe with figure hugging Fendi at a Tag Hueur Promotion Event.

The trend: Polished prom
The details: Fun, flirty and carefree, we can’t seem to shake our love affair with full skirts – perhaps its an ode to our childhood or that the shape is universally flattering? Both Mena Suvari‘s Alice + Olivia and Emily Blunt‘s Naeem Khan monochrome dresses had a touch of the traditional about it but it’s Fan Bing Bing‘s intricately worked Louis Vuitton – complete with matching head scarf – that would win her the Prom Queen tiara.
