We may have seen this frock before (yes, Elle Fanning we're talking about you), but Olivia Palermo managed to make it her own at the Couple of the Year Awards in Hamburg, Germany. The white frock from the Spring '11 collection was given a grown up redux. See how Olivia did it:
- The So-Special Neckline: Marchesa is known for fabulously feminine detailing, and the embellished sheer neckline adds grown-up glamour to this short and frilly frock. Without it the dress would look too young and casual for a red carpet event.
- The Standout Shoes: The old neutral dress + bright shoes trick hasn't lost its appeal, as Olivia well knows. Her red and black satin pumps sex up this innocent LWD.
- Keeping It In Proportion: A voluminous frock like this one can swamp your figure, especially in an A line shape that does nothing to define the waist. However, the mini length compensates perfectly by putting Olivia's fab pins on show. Flaunting one body part at a time is good rule of thumb for any ensemble.
- The Low Key Accessories: Simple pearl studs are all Liv needs, and coordinates instead of competes with her dress' stunning embellishment. A sequinned clutch by Club Monaco adds shine, without taking over.
