Get the Look: Party Dresses From All the Best Designers

Selecting the holiday party dresses here was more fun than going shopping for the real thing. The list of designers reads like a Vogue editor’s Fashion Week to-do list. There are 42 different designers represented here, each dress more fun than the next. Probably you won’t be able to actually buy many of these, thanks to the sky high prices, but still, they are divine.

If I were going to a holiday party, and I could wear any of them (and this is in dreamland, where I have the perfect body to match my bottomless wallet), I think I’d opt for the Rachel Roy or Marc Jacobs, though I do also love the drape-y metallic Vivienne Westwood and the darling Nina Ricci. I also love the idea of the Isabel Marant with black booties, topped with a leather moto jacket. I suppose it depends on the occasion. They’re all pretty fabulous. Which holiday party dress would you wear to a fancy fete?

Get the Look: 24 Floral Fashions For Summer

Did Thursday’s 26 Floral Street Style Looks inspire you to mix in a bit of floral lovin’? Even if you’re not ready for a full-on floral dress (and really, who am I to talk), you could try it out with a tank or hey, a thong. I’m thinking a floral iPhone case would work for me. I do love looking at these though, even if I’m not wearing them. So fun. If you love the floral-print shoes (I’m slightly obsessed with the Loeffler Randall pair here, and the Jimmy Choo floral-printed python platform), you can also check out my floral shoe roundup, “Petal Power” in Sunday’s Boston Globe.
