lovely dress and the clutch in that vibrant orange colour gives the outfit a cool twist and it's an interesting colour combination.

Great dress, great look. Also, that's Tom Browne in the background! Jorge from WPB

That dress is nothing short of beautiful. I mean look at that cinched waist!! In the great words of Rachael Zoe, "I die"……
July 29, 2009 at 9:52 am
Wow, what an amazing colour.
I'm a mean street kid.
July 29, 2009 at 9:55 am
oh wow that is so beautiful
July 29, 2009 at 9:58 am
What a lovely dress! It's such a gorgeous color!

I hate to be negative but I don't like this! The cut is unflattering IMHO – too much gathering and too much fabric from the waist down and the ruffles up top combined with the tight waist cinching make the bust appear to hang low. Looks a bit like a Victorian nightgown in a stretch knit. Also the colour is a bit harsh on her. Sorry!

is that Elsa Zylberstein? beautiful.

Beautiful color on her. And this is a perfect example of how understated sexy is far more interesting than overt sexy. Love it.
July 29, 2009 at 10:19 am
love the color!
July 29, 2009 at 10:23 am
this is gorgeous. the style, the length, the COLOR! just amazing.
July 29, 2009 at 10:24 am
Dear heavens, that waist line is killer!
July 29, 2009 at 10:33 am
very cute colours
July 29, 2009 at 10:34 am
Beautiful dress! Love the color!
July 29, 2009 at 10:35 am
I love the dress, and the background is just perfect!Beautiful colour and design but the girl is just too skinny!

What an amazing dress! The color is simply beyond beautiful and a little splash of ornage color brings it out even more ( I assume it is an orange clutch bag in her hands?). Beautiful picture!
July 29, 2009 at 10:43 am
This SCREAMS "fabulous"
July 29, 2009 at 10:50 am
Incredible! The color is amazing on her, and her accessories are perfect.

Sorry, but it looks rather bridesmaid-y to me.
she looks stunning! i love the top of the dress as well!

Ugh. Iwish I could swipe those bangs out of her beautiful eyes….
melts into air
July 29, 2009 at 11:30 am
I love that she is wearing such a beautiful dress with that watch!
July 29, 2009 at 11:31 am
Beautiful dress! Lovely color
July 29, 2009 at 11:34 am
The colour is spectacular & the fall of the fabric is flawless! Just stunning!

I spotted Anna Dello Russo wearing a long silk green dress at an aperitivo in Milan…a trend is born!
July 29, 2009 at 11:47 am
That is a very beautiful dress, love the waistline and the color.
July 29, 2009 at 12:00 pm
the dress is to die for. the way it falls off her hips just after the cinching of the waist, the wonderful collar, and the length are all done with great taste. the colour of the clutch is superb, and her watch is very classy. the greatest thing about this outfit is how effortless it looks. she isn't distracted by her clothes – she is celebrating them by living them without having to think about them. she lets them speak for themselves.
don't know if that makes sense, but great outfit, nonetheless.

Turquoise and Red, Never thought of that. Looks awesome!
July 29, 2009 at 12:07 pm
I wish I were taller so I could get away with wearing a dress with this length! She looks amazing, and her simple hair works so well with the ruffling. xxx

Protected from the coarse ways of the world in in her own softly draped world of teal green.
July 29, 2009 at 12:11 pm
In this particular case it looks as if the dress is wearing her. Although, it might just be her posture.
July 29, 2009 at 12:16 pm
wow, amazing dress, beautiful colour!
July 29, 2009 at 12:18 pm
Wow. Everything about this is just gorgeous.
July 29, 2009 at 12:34 pm
Gorgeous and obviously vintage by the shirred neck ruffle, silhouette, color and the uneven hem (it's all sooo 1970's). Can't get this one off the rack!
July 29, 2009 at 12:52 pm
Gorgeous dress and great colour. The clutch is a great addition and the watch is nicely understated… wonder what she's wearing on her feet?
This is fabulous~!And could I see Michelle Obamais this one, big time~!Wow~!
July 29, 2009 at 12:53 pm
Simply exquisite. I nevah get tired of that particular shade of teal.
July 29, 2009 at 12:58 pm
Stunin!I looove the color
July 29, 2009 at 1:02 pm
There was an H&M dress JUST like this one at the beginning of the season… Also, Did you get any pics of Tom Browne?
July 29, 2009 at 1:03 pm
I love love love the dress its one of my favorite all time colorsand the touch of orange… unassuming watch and hair…this girl knows
July 29, 2009 at 1:06 pm
This dress is stunning.
July 29, 2009 at 1:09 pm
Wow! That is a truly stunning dress. I love the way it hangs- looks like its been cut on the bias? The colour is gorgeous and the ruffles just make it all the more charming. I also like the orange clutch as it adds contrasting (well, clashing!) colour. Nice waatch.Definitely one of my favourite looks so far!
July 29, 2009 at 1:11 pm
That dress is really beautiful and contrast well with her skin tone and hair!
July 29, 2009 at 1:20 pm
she looks out of place and your picture and her facial expression capture that. her outfit provokes no desire to be her at that place at that time. the color, the cut, the material seems to be off somehow. but great picture, because i can see and feel all of what i said through viewing it.
July 29, 2009 at 1:44 pm
amazing and beautiful
July 29, 2009 at 2:14 pm
stunning dress, stunning colour. I'm so into maxi dresses right now, and this is perfection.

i love the idea of a silky long maxi dress in the summer – just not in NYC, where the idea of trudging up and down subway station steps in a floor-grazing frock makes me shudder :P. that color is positively beautiful with her skin tone and hair color though!
July 29, 2009 at 2:39 pm
Beautiful, this outfit is absolutely stunning, as is the girl.
July 29, 2009 at 2:48 pm
She looks amazing. Something about her makes the look look so fresh.
July 29, 2009 at 2:56 pm
love the colours – the dress, the clutch, the gold watch, her platinum hair… WOW :)
July 29, 2009 at 3:18 pm
vintage (or vintage-inspired) done perfectly.
July 29, 2009 at 3:27 pm
A must have!! and that fabulous color.
I pre-ordered your book!! so excited to make it a part of my home :)

Gok used that dress in his program. It's actually H&M:)
July 29, 2009 at 5:11 pm
haha, tom brown in the backround, all like "do you want to take my picture?"
July 29, 2009 at 5:49 pm
Fab retro look! But really, what was Thom Browne wearing? –curious.
July 29, 2009 at 6:01 pm
dress looks amazing. it's h&m, believe it or not.
July 29, 2009 at 6:05 pm
great but it remains me one of the dress wchich was in the gok's fashion fix program
actually it looks the same…but that was from h&m…i am confused :Dbut the main thing is that she looks stunning!
July 29, 2009 at 6:48 pm
She is so beautiful! Love the coulours of the dress, her purse and her hair – that's a good match.
July 29, 2009 at 7:05 pm
that is a great color on her. gorgeous
July 29, 2009 at 7:14 pm
That is absolutely stunning!!!
July 29, 2009 at 7:17 pm
Fantastic dress. Love that color! I love rich jewel tones, they're so flattering and warming on any skin tone.

Oooh! That color is wonderful.
July 29, 2009 at 8:55 pm
why do we not see more women wearing dresses like this? so beautiful Hx
July 29, 2009 at 8:56 pm
does anyone have any idea who makes those, or very similar, black ankle strap wedges the other woman is wearing? thank you!
July 29, 2009 at 9:20 pm
an example where something on paper makes absolutely no sense, yet surprises you upon execution
it's in the draping and fabric where ease and allowance are exuded, despite the ruffles and length. the bike helps too.
July 29, 2009 at 10:15 pm
beautiful! i admire someone who choose to be elegant during the day. hmm…i think i see thom browne in the background too…??
July 29, 2009 at 10:31 pm
It's hard to pull of a look like this and not look like you're wearing curtains, but she does it. The lightweight fabric certainly helps, but as others have said she wears it very well.
My only disappointment is that I can't see her shoes. I'll have to imagine those!
July 30, 2009 at 12:40 am
Oh wow, now that's a dress. A beautiful, beautiful, beautiful dress. The color, the ruffles, the orange clutch she's grasping in her hands. I love it all!
July 30, 2009 at 12:51 am
The hue of the gown is beautiful. It's so summery yet elegant.
July 30, 2009 at 1:38 am
I <3 , reminds me of beautifulllll days.. Childhood.

Oh my, that color is to die for! Positively miraculous.

July 30, 2009 at 3:04 am
Love this on her! Could never pull it off though.
July 30, 2009 at 3:51 am
only i can say: wow!
July 30, 2009 at 6:23 am
What I wonder is how this works in the city? Does the dress get ruined by her stepping on it?
The colour really suit her.
July 30, 2009 at 7:56 am
I love this at first glance, but when I look further I can see that she feels uncomfortable – she feels out of place, somewhat. I love the colour and the style, especially the waist and the ruffled neckline, but have problems with the uneven hem (looks like the seamstress had a care factor of zero) and the fact that it does make her bust look a little saggy … But overall I do love it – throw in some bust support, an even hem and a confident pose and it would be a winner!!
July 30, 2009 at 8:37 am
i like how all the girls are commenting in such a girly fashion…but seriously "to die for"
July 30, 2009 at 8:59 am
this IS the dress that was on gok's fashion fix? h&m, i'm pretty sure, yes. she belted it like he did, and the ruffles are totally the same…and the colour. hmm a well worn h&m
July 30, 2009 at 9:24 am
What an dreadful dress, the colour is quite disturbing and the overall design is frumpy and fussy – sorry I know I am in a minority of one, but I really don't think it does this woman (or anyone else) any favours at all – the type of thing some of my parents' more pretentious friends wore in the eighties…oh fashion…
July 30, 2009 at 9:43 am
She looks like Kim Gordon from Sonic Youth.
July 30, 2009 at 10:19 am
beautiful!the colours are just amazing with the orange wallet/handbag, and the bracelet/wristwatch! beautiful girl as well.
July 30, 2009 at 1:05 pm
Does anyone know where one could find this dress or one like it????????????????????
July 30, 2009 at 2:21 pm
so beautiful. love the color.
July 30, 2009 at 2:43 pm
J'adore! The color and collar detail are to die for.
July 30, 2009 at 2:48 pm
gorgious!smart, elegant and cool. the perfect look for summertime
July 30, 2009 at 6:20 pm
She looks absolutely jaw-dropping in the dress.
July 30, 2009 at 7:18 pm
would this be called a "maxi" ?
July 30, 2009 at 9:07 pm
I can't decide if it's her tiny waist or the dress that makes the silhouette amazing
July 30, 2009 at 11:25 pm
She looks so cool! Love the long dress.

ohhh i love that dress!!!
August 1, 2009 at 2:59 pm
great look! i know where she got the dress, and its somewhere u would never expect!! very affordable but looks priceless on her!! i know cause i wanted to get the same dress too!!
August 1, 2009 at 5:29 pm
This is incredible. Ah, look at that waist…the shape…the color.
August 1, 2009 at 11:45 pm
I love the high waist and the length of the dress, but I'm not thrilled about the ruffles on the neck and chest. It's a lovely color though. Is that Erin Fetherston in the photo?
August 2, 2009 at 1:14 am
i love this silhouette! and the neckline is so pretty!
August 2, 2009 at 6:48 am
August 2, 2009 at 7:01 pm

August 3, 2009 at 2:24 pm
This dress is from H&M last year. She did an amazing job on making it look $1000 more then it really is!!
August 3, 2009 at 4:20 pm
OMGoodness, everyone is totally missing! Along with this gorgeous and statuesque woman and Thom Browne in the background is . . . Tim Blanks!!! The peppered hair, the white pants, the untucked short-sleeve shirt that says I'm-on-permanent-vacation are iconic! YAY!
August 3, 2009 at 7:07 pm
if any one is looking for a similar dress i found one on this website http://www.meghanfabulous.com/store/pid-360-Meghan_Fabulous_Christie_Dress.html this is a dress that looks the closets to this one but they do have other dresses that look semi-similar to this.
August 4, 2009 at 3:28 pm
that dress was on gok fashion fix. ;)
August 4, 2009 at 11:31 pm
LOVE LOVE LOVE!! BE MINE!
August 5, 2009 at 3:29 am
what a great colour on her skin tone. the gathering of all that fabric also accentuates her tiny waist. such a versatile, seasonless dress. very chic.

The dress is H&M from about two years ago. It looks like a designer gown, but I know for certain it's H&M.
August 8, 2009 at 4:29 am
i wonder if this dress would still look so amazing without her tiny tiny waist?
August 9, 2009 at 8:01 am
August 9, 2009 at 1:26 pm
I love Thom Browne just chillin in the backround!
August 10, 2009 at 11:18 pm
Stunning, an unexpected look for summer. I love how casual she makes it.
August 12, 2009 at 11:26 am
I would kill for that dress!

This is very beautiful on her.

The dress is from H&M. Just goes to show you don't need to spend a lot.
