    she appears like a goddess to be worshipped.
    my heart stopped (usually only men have this affect on me!)
    earth shattering look.

    Very striking… but the fit is too strange for my tastes. Looks like a green sack with balloons attached to the shoulders. Pretty girl, though.

    Looked at this for a while. It’s nice but takes a while to appreciate. The dress also means that you have to very particular with your purse selection (and, therefore, what you’ll be able to carry).

    Impractical fashion? How…unusual.

    This is a strange fitting garment… Not one of my favorites… at all. But yay for her wearing it out, I wouldn’t be able to.

    beautiful. the shape of the bag is really nice in the way that it mirrors the shape of the sleeves, and the color of the dress itself is fantastic. nothing but net here.

    I LOVE THIS DRESS. Anyone know who it’s by?

    I have a question for the fashion sages here: What is the scoop on wearing several delicate necklaces like the woman in this picture? To me, this particular dress would look better without necklaces (or a single, bolder one) but I would guess she always wears one, some, or all of these trinkets.

    I’ve always forgone every-day jewelry (even a wedding ring!) because I am particular about accessorizing “just right.” So I’m curious: Have I been fretting over nothing? Or, can one – say, gold-cross-on-a-chain, really ruin the styling of an outfit that doesn’t necessarily call for such an accessory?


    P.S. I love the dress. The color looks great with her tan! Love the shoes too!

    i believe the dress is by stella mccartney…i love the color but i think it takes a very strong person to pull off that sort of sleeve. she does it well!

    Ah! The Mushroom dress. Not many can pull off this look, as witnessed here…

    Anybody please correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe this is a Stella McCartney

    the dress is cute too–love the edge the shoe gives to it.

    Lilith or Jennifer – re: your comment on accessories – this look harkens towards ladies tennis – they put so much effort towards a “new” look for every big slam tournament – only to seemingly junk it up w/ tic tac jewelry or outrageous other junk/accessories. Sharapova always has a cross chain and long gold earrings – and the William sisters – don’t get me started.
    For every day – I watch it – but I don’t edit my wedding ring as it is plain enough (but I have considered it)….

    What I really love about this look is that she’s got casual hair, little make-up and bare legs (which happen to be gorgeous). It really balances the dress which would too frou-frou with if she was too polished.

    Oh, and about the layered delicate necklaces- I think that’s what makes this outfit look unique to this individual and envokes her personal style instead of “what is prescribed or considered right”

    Gorgeous colour and great choice of shoes.

    Your photos always make me smile. :-)

    i love everything about it, but you have to admit it does look like she strapped a head of lettuce to each shoulder!!! i would, however, recommend this dress in a different color

    Usually I really like the stuff you post but this is not working for me. The huge puffy sleeves seem to overpower the super short sheath of the rest of the dress giving it a really top-heavy look. Love the colour though.

    the dress is a little weird…but it’s growing on me. i think the whole look would be better if she got rid of the jewelry and chose to forgo carrying a bag altogether…although i realize this is not a practical solution…i guess what i’m saying is- the sleeves are two accessories which can’t tolerate competition.

    The color of this dress…perfect this season

    perfection. the necklaces add a youthful, casual touch. absolutely beautiful. i disagree with a previous commenter; this dress can be worn with a variety of bag styles..

    anyway, this is one of the best looks i’ve seen for women so far (on this blog).

    it doesn’t mean that i would wear this. some readers are so self-obsessed! it isn’t always about us..

    forget that we might not be able to rock it. it’s still a beautiful, tight yet playful ensemble.

    Now that´s what I call a bon bon !

    I specially like the way her hair colour and eyes combine with the dress.

    I love the form of the dress, it is very light in a way, she looks likefrom a fairy tale.

    Love everything about that outfit, except the sleeves.

    The colour is exquisite against her olive skin and her legs are amazing.

    Oh, and those shoes – OMG – stunning!

    Maybe I have just morphed into a cranky old lady but that dress looks like the top half of a bad ’80′s bride’s maid dress. All it is missing is the huge butt-bow.

    I love layered gold necklaces – they add individuality to an outfit and its a fun way to twist wearing some really classic pieces. I love to layer anything with my grandmother gold wedding ring on a chain…

    Lilith-jennifer, I agree: these necklaces are impossible!!!

  41. Iheartfashion

    That’s l’uomo Vogue’s Anna Dello Russo.
    And for those who commented that they liked the dress, but not the sleeves: that dress IS the sleeves! The sleeves are what make it so amazing and fashion-forward in terms of proportion. Without the oversized sleeves, it’s just a basic sheath. It’s not a look for everyone, but like the Prada satin ultra-mini she was pictured in here before, Anna wears it well!

    Anna has the best legs and she knows how to work them!

    I LOVE this picture sart it is stunning!! The Alaia shoes in that tan shade compliments her Stella McCartney dress and Bottega bag.. (noticed that I mentioned all the brands) I wonder what her everyday style is like. :D

    Her legs are to die for!

    oh the great necklace debate…I feel like some women can pull off wearing the same necklace(s) everyday and it can look “put together” with any outfit. I am not one of those women. Wish I was although I just can’t seem to be satisfied unless I am wearing what accessorizes best with what I am wearing that particular day…whether it’s one bold necklace, 3 delicate chains, or nothing at all.

    I like this dress a lot – but in any other more drab color I don’t think it would work. It almost looks like something one could sew up themselves – simple – yet probably quite complex. I am going to check the Stella collection right now…

    Beautiful. The sleeves are amazing and so is the color of the dress.
    She’s got the legs to wear something so short.

    simply smashing !

    the color is divine.
    the simplicity of the shift with the extravagant sleeves makes for a perfect balance.

    I think she looks great, I love the color, and the dress is gorgeous; maybe is uncommon, but in my opinion, that’s part of the loveliness of the dress.

    she has a beautiful smile,
    it´s amazing that she doesnt show it more often
    she seems to be younger that way
