Glamorous Gowns

First things first, darlings! The three winners of CC’s Ocean Home Magazine Subscription Giveaway are Chessa, Mimi, and Alex Keller ~ congrats!
For Spring 2010, gowns are glam! CC has rounded up some solid work (pun intended) from the runway shows, and the message is clear: color is key! Think delicate swaths of silk-chiffon in candy-colored hues.

speaking of Viktor and Rolf...love geometrical influence they bring in the gown which is indeed glamorous and would say the color to be is possibly cantaloupe melon?

Great round up of gowns. You definitely put work behind this post. The Isaac Mizrahi gown is stunning, but the prize for originality must go to Victor & Rolf. OMG! What an insane dress!

S.Elisabeth said...

Love these gowns. I can't wait for prom this year so I can try to find the perfect dress =)

Jessica said...

I am IN LOVE with this teal Rachel Gilbert dress, but I've never heard of her. I will need to do research!

Style Redux 2 said...

Love the Azzaro especially.

The pale purple Halston is just breathtaking. I would give anything to find that frock hanging in my closet!

Congratulations to the winners!! :)

That Chelsea Girl™ said...

All of these dresses are magnificent. They look so soft, I just want to rub my cheek against them. Thanks for wishing me luck on my new blog endeavor.
Decided to move it to Tumblr, but I hope on top of my style blog and school and work that I can keep up with it.
Have a great weekend, doll!

Cammila said...

Honestly, I want to own that Viktor & Rolf one and just, like, wear it to work. Just around the office, to the coffee machine, at my desk. That would be enough for me.

Oh, and I'd keep something in that hole. An umbrella or something.

Grace said...

So pretty!!! I love over the top tulle gowns like that Marchesa and the Haute Hippie one.

Ms Smart said...

The peach number with the holes in it, is a hoot.

Joanne Faith said...

Gorgeousss. I must spend a night in a designer gown. Nothing else to make you feel like a princess!

Christen said...

I really wish I had the opportunity to wear even just one of these... so beautiful!

Kristin said...

Bring on the Golden Globes...I'm ready to see some serious red carpet gown moments!

tris1978ton said...

That body-hugging orange gown is gorgeous! It's on the right body of course :O) These sure beat the Miss America gowns.

CC said...

I have always loved gowns, ever since I like three years old.
The Vicktor & Rolf is fabulous. The rest are gorgeous too, but I particularly like the blue-green, aqua one.

beckyxoxo said...

La sonrisa de Hiperión said...

Otro día me tienes por aquí, que pedazos de vestidos de noche. Geniales...

Saludos y un abrazo enorme.

HiFashion said...

These are sooo gorgeous. I would love to go somewhere where I could wear a pretty gown. I love the Carlos Miele and Jenny Packham ones. But my ultimate favourite has to be the Tommy Hilfiger one. I love the Ancient Greek look to it.

COCAMIA said...

I absolutely adore gowns that hit the floor! Happy Weekend...xo
