Aussie fashion labels are getting their praise and we’re here for it, especially with Afterpay Australian Fashion Week 2023 coming around in May. We saw a Seed dress on Camilla Morrone in the premiere of “Daisy Jones and The Six” earlier this month and recently we’ve sighted a little black Rebecca Vallance dress on a number of celebrities.
The $649 Katie Bow Mini Dress can be described as sexy-doll-chic. A seamless mix of cute and hot. The bodice includes puffed sleeves and three bows down the sternum that leave the chest tastefully exposed. And the lower half is a sleek, a-line mini skirt that ends mid-thigh.
Each celebrity spotted in the dress has brought their own unique spin to it. Paired with her high-to-sky pig tails, Meghan Trainor gave us wholesome. Sophia Bush served a presidential vibe on “The Late Late Show”. And Paris Hilton dished out a scholarly look while she donned the dress at her memoir signing.
But our favourite styling of this dress was by actress Kate Beckinsale. With a slicked-back, high ponytail and a dainty pair of dangly earrings, she looked positively radiant. The model paired the dress with a pair of latex-look platform heels.
“It is a timeless wardrobe staple that you can wear season to season, and it never dates,” explained designer Holly Vallance in an interview with news.com.au.
Wondering how to style it in colder weather? A pair of sheer leggings and heeled boots will give this number some warmth with a touch of edge.
We’ve found some other pieces that embody the same cute-but-sexy energy with a more cost-effective price tag. Read on to find out where to get these little black dress alternatives.
Frenchie Mini Dress
Delta Diamante Cut Out Mini
Forever New’s Delta Diamante Cut Out Mini ($169.99) gives you puff sleeves and a small hint of bow without the $649 price tag. The style of this piece might remind you of Blair Waldorf taking on the Upper East Side’s latest scandal (or causing it). Take this little black dress out for dinner with your Chuck Bass paired with some kitten heels and a saddle bag to complete the look.
We know summer is long gone for the year but Showpo’s Levana Dress ($79.95) screams picnic date. Tie a bow in your hair for the full babydoll effect.
