I’m a sucker for white dresses. They are just perfect for summer and you’ll get an instant mood lift just from looking at them. When I first discovered this Marc by Marc Jacobs tiered halterneck dress I was madly in love.

Celebrities Love Marc by Marc Jacobs

We all first saw this dress on Blair Waldorf (played by Leighton Meester) in an episode of Gossip Girl called “Summer Kind Of Wonderful“. Leighton looked absolutely amazing and until today this look belongs in my top 3 of all her Gossip Girl outfits. Paris Hilton came second and British soap star Emma Rigby has worn this beautiful dress as well.

BB Dakota “The Sassy” Dress

I’v been looking for ages to find a look-a-like dress of the Joelle frock and finally found it in the form of this BB Dakota dress. But at the time I tried to place my order, it was already sold out. Boohoo! However, weeks later I now found the same dress elsewhere for $75. The BB Dakota dress might be missing the cute front-bow, but otherwise both dresses are practically identical.

I know I’d have the hardest time walking in those sky-high stiletto platforms by Charlotte Olympia, but everything in me screams WANT! WANT! WANT! The mega platform pumps with the sculptured gold stiletto are some serious killer statement heels! So gorgeous, I can’t bring myself to stop staring. Sigh!

Emma Watson Loves Charlotte Olympia

The lovely Emma Watson looked absolutely stunning in a sheer organza dress by Christopher Kane when she visited the Late Show with David Letterman last month. Emma paired her dress with a pair of to-die-for Charlotte Olympia “Cindy Masako” platform heels which are very similar to the pumps shown above. Absolute perfection!

bebe “Veronica” Platform Pumps

bebe was obviously inspired by Charlotte Olympia’s stunning statement heels as they’ve come up with their own version called “Veronica”. bebe’s inspired heels aren’t satin but leather instead and the heel is also silver instead of gold, but the shape and the overall look scream Charlotte Olympia! These retail for $149 and also come in black suede with a leopard print platform. If you want an other color than black, bebe has the same platforms in pewter as well.

Leighton Meester was photographed yesterday on the Gossip Girl set looking absolutely adorable in a floral Alice + Olivia halter dress which was quintessentially Blair Waldorf’s style. What a beautiful dress for a hot summer day!
