Those tend to be some of the photos that stick with me most. I find myself wanting to go back and look at them time and time again. Usually I'll end up asking a friend, "Did you see that dress Gwenyth wore last night??" I guess the gowns just have more impact than, let's say...pants.
But I digress. Here are just a few of the gowns that have wowed me in recent memory.
|Jason Wu Spring 2013 RTW|
This is not a dress. This IS the starry night sky.
|Blake Lively in Zuhair Murad|
This happened over the summer. I might have been speechless. There is nothing about this that isn't perfect.
|Allison Williams in Naheem Khan Spring 2013|
The proof is in the puddin', people. You can indeed cover up 85-90% of your body and still look sexy as hell. And did you know that Allison here is the daughter of news anchor and personality, Brian Williams? I learned this today.
|Jamie Beck in Rae Francis / Kelly Framel in White + Warren|
There are technically two dresses here. But they are a package deal, in my humble opinion. Jamie and Kelly (two of my most favorite bloggers that just happen to be best friends) are here shown gallivanting around Paris in the rain looking just fabulous. These girls are about the only two who could pull off coordinating or matching outfits. And they do it well too.

I know this isn't really a dress, but a shirt-skirt combo. I had to include it anyway because 1) It's the same concept and 2) I had a similar reaction the first time I saw this photo as I did the previous four photos. The woman in this photo is the epitome of comfort AND chic. ALL AT ONCE. From the ballet flats to the stretch of the skirt to the cut of her tank top, this is a woman who knows how to dress with practicality and style.
I believe the reason I am so enamored with this photo is that this is what I aim for my personal style to be. Because I know me. I know that I will complain if I am uncomfortable or cold. I will wish I put flats in my bag every time. So I love to witness someone perfect the art of balancing comfort and style.
I want to know about your favorite dress moments. Tell me in the comments!
