Real vs. Steal – Stella McCartney Saskia Belted Colorblock Gown

Stella McCartney has a way of making a simple black dress as eye-catching as any other dress in the room. And this dress is no exception. It’s a classic silhouette, but the way it’s cut in at the sides and belted is very modern and unexpected. Brooklyn and Gwyneth both wear this dress spectacularly, but as a brunette, I’d wear it with a sleek ponytail, smokey eyes, nude lips, and very little jewelry. You only need a beautiful cuff or cocktail ring and perhaps some sleek drop earrings. If you can’t afford this designer gown, but really love the style, consider the pieces we’ve put together below to create a similar look.

McBerry Optical Illusion Gown & Mettle “The Bold & The Beautiful” Belt

Up close, the look may seem different; but when you wear it in a darkened room, the optical illusion is just fantastic. This dress by McBerry does work better on fairer skin, but it’s just an idea of how you can create the same strong shape with a design that covers more skin (makes you look super toned) and pay a lot less. You can wear it as is, or add this gold belt by Mettle to kick up the glam factor. The belt is also a versatile accessory you can wear with a solid-colored cocktail dress and instantly make it look both luxurious and unique.

    this Dress is BEAUTIFULL!!!!!!! I Love it

  • Joanna

    I honestly prefer the McBerry Optical Illusion Gown…

  • I love the original but would love it more if the belt was detachable and metal like the one in the “steal” section.
