Now a full lifestyle collection, the brand has become a Hollywood favorite with fans including Gwyneth Paltrow, Fergie, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lopez, Blake Lively, and Taylor Swift.
The fabric and fit are beautiful on this dress. It will work for both straight and curvy girls. I just wore this to a wedding and got many compliments but... Yes there is a big but.. The dress twists and rides up.. It is truly horrible. I basically had to pull the dress down continually. Not to mention making sure the seams on the side of my des were in the right place. I am considering sowing my spanx into the dress so I won't have this issue again. If it will stay put it is a stunning dress. So beware!
