D and G Goddess Gown Look for 2011

D&G Goddess Gown and Look for Summer 2011

Here is another of our occasional features where we put together a “look” for the new season, using some of the best designs around.

The centre piece of this look is the fabulously floral peony printed D&G Goddess Gown made from pure silk. This is an awesome gown, which features a cross over bust with ruching, a deep v back and a gorgeous silk self tie sash around the waist, which hangs down the back. The delicate peony flowers against a dusky nude pink background are the very essence of summer itself and breathe life into any occasion.

I decided to team the dress with the wonderful Pour La Victoire Jessie Wedges in pale camel. The D&G Goddess Gown is long, so unless you are particularly tall, it’s a good idea to have a bit of leg lengthening going on underneath it :-). Not only do these wedges add inches (or centimetres if you’re a metric girl) to your legs, they do so in the most comfortable way imagineable. The wide platform sole mitigates the height of the heel, and wedge heels provide a much broader base of support for the foot than a stiletto.

For accessories, I’ve decided to echo the dusky pink undertones of the dress and have chosen a series of items in rose gold to compliment the ensemble – the Michael Kors large rose gold chronograph watch, the  Dannijo Rose Gold Ring and the gorgeous Halston Heritage Rose Gold Sequinned Jenny Clutch to add a dash of glamour. Of course, if you prefer you could go for yellow gold accessories as these too would look good. Personally speaking, I would be less enthusiastic about teaming the dress with silver accessories, as this dress has an aura of warmth which is best complimented with other warm metals.
