Fall Must Haves: 10 Printed Long-Sleeve Dresses

Just because it’s cooling down, doesn’t mean you need to stop wearing pretty prints. We’ve found a great assortment of gorgeous, colorful prints with long sleeves, that you can pair with tights for a sumptuous, bright and cozy fall look.

 

I Hope You Don’t Like This Dress Too Much, Because It’ll Cost You $5.7 Million

Just in case Kelly Osbourne‘s $250,000 manicure wasn’t vulgar ridiculous pointless fancy enough for you, try this on for size (or don’t, we’re thinking it’s probably more of a museum piece): “young, famous” British designer Debbie Wingham (yeah, we’ve never heard of her either) is now presenting this $5.7 million dress, which she calls “an anthem for a beautiful woman who loves life” and capitalism. As it so happens, the peplum dress, like Kelly’s manicure, was crafted with black diamonds — 50 of them, to be exact.

Our friends over at The Gloss raise a fantastic point: these black diamonds are sooooooo rare and expensive, you can line a dress in them, then crush ‘em up and funnel them into a bottle of black nail polish. No word yet on whether the manicure is World’s Most Expensive (is there even a category for that?), but the World Record Academy has confirmed that Wingham’s dress has set the official world record for Most Expensive Dress. So, um … congrats? [The Gloss]

You know, body-con dresses don’t usually do it for me. I would take a flowy Greek goddess gown over an Hervé Léger any day of the week. The squeeze-every-curve style is sexy, of course, but something about it is just so … obvious, even a little cheap (okay, a lot cheap). It also doesn’t help that women wearing them generally look like they just. Can’t. Breathe. But if anyone is going to take a fitted dress known for its slightly risqué nature and wear it to elegant perfection, it’s going to be Penélope Cruz, right? This is a look — tight fit, floral print, hot pink clutch — that I would generally hate on anyone else, but Penélope makes it look, well, classy. Do I sense some black magic at work?

Style Stealer: Salma Hayek’s European Glamour

Salma Hayek is successful, beautiful, and currently lives in Paris with her uber rich husband and adorable daughter–things could be worse, right? I love this outfit she wore to the Venice Film Festival–the flared dress and cardigan is a classic combo that would look amazing on many different body types.

Style 911: What Should The Daughter Of The Bride Wear?

My mom’s getting married next month, and I don’t even know where to start when it comes to finding a “daughter of the bride” dress. Mom is pretty laid back and hasn’t given me much guidance, fashion-wise, because she’s been so busy with wedding planning. Any tips would be much appreciated! –Proud DOB

Congrats to your mom! So, this is a really interesting question, because while there are plenty of resources out there for mother of the bride outfits (all of which seem to involve beaded boleros), “daughter of the bride” is still mostly uncharted fashion territory. Obviously you’re not alone in your quest: so many women decide to remarry later in life that “daughter of the bride” is now a very common role.

It really depends on the formality of your mom’s wedding and if she wants you to wear the same style as her bridesmaids or coordinate with the wedding colors, but in any case, here are a few general guidelines to keep in mind when choosing a DOB dress… Keep reading »
