I LOVE the look but I really do think you gotta be one of those ladies who can pull it off!!

I <3 the Christian Siriano gown!! It would probably make my hips look huge but its beautiful. The Monique Lhuillier one too is gorgeous. I'd wear that to an event if I was famous!!

I love one shoulder dresses... why is it that I don't have any? I have to put it on my wish list! have a nice day CC! xo

Cheri said...

One shoulder dresses are sooo gorgeus and glamourous. Yet, I don't own a piece. :( But tell me, is it only me who find one shoulder TOPS not as glamourous?

So many pretty dresses! Ellie Saab... lovely as always.

Susanna-Cole said...

I have a love/hate relationship with asymmetry, in some ways I love it for daring to be a voice of unbalance, and in other ways it drives me a bit nuts not to have things even...either way, these are some lovely gowns you've collected up and posted! ♥

xoxo,
S-C

Pau said...

Love Alberta Ferretti dress ;)

anna lisa said...

the jonathan sauders is my vote...do we get to vote? ♥

Fifi Flowers said...

One shoulder always reminds moi of togas... BUT these are trés elegante!!! I might go to a toga party if I could wear one of these... I'd be soooooo colour compared to all the white linens, non?

TERI REES WANG said...

I have a weeding to attend out in the desert this weekend, and still I have nothing picked out to wear. So, there you have given me some new aesthetic inspiration to side step the sand dunes.

Diana Mieczan said...
