Dolce & Gabbana

I’ve been looking at this picture of model Nika Lauraitis posing in front of the Barbadian sun for the last few days and I must say I’m slightly obsessed. The editorial called Sweet Reverie (shot by Max Abadian) has been printed in Flare’s May issue and it is outstandingly beautiful, relaxed, dreamy. Definitely one of my favorite editorials of 2010. I’ve been especially smitten with Nika’s delicate white lace dress (hers is by Dolce & Gabbana S/S 2010) which she wears over a black corset here. White lace is undoubtedly tricky to pull off for grown women, but I think I found a couple of great and budget-friendly options which could look – if accessorized right – almost quite as eye-catching as D&G’s lacy number.

Wow… what’s there to say about Penélope Cruz in this incredible nude sheath by Dolce & Gabbana except caliente? She looks phenomenal. The dress is exquisite, as are the to-die-for nude Christian Louboutin peep-toes. She gets two thumbs up, an A++, and first place.

Penélope Cruz’ Look 4 Less

Love Pen in that frock, and I’m sure you do too. So here’s the real-world, real-girl version, for less than $243. And a customer testimonial for you…I have those nude Whitsey pumps, and they are astoundingly fabulous! They are my new favorite pumps, and mind you, I’m not a big fan of peep-toes. But this is a very special shoe. Truuuuuust me. Happy spring and happy shopping!

Back in June Heather Graham walked the red carpet of the Los Angeles premiere for “The Hangover” in a ravishing red satin dress by Dolce & Gabbana. The blonde actress was a total knockout in her corseted, body-con dress which she finished off with her favorite Jimmy Choo sandals and perfectly coiffed hair. Love it! This is one of my favorite red carpet looks this year.
