The Season’s Most Exciting Ballgowns
Shining sequins, fragile feathers and a touch of tulle – and a lot of men in black. The motto on the big catwalks of Bottega Veneta, Emporio Armani and co. was: more is more. A preview of the ball season.
“Go for gold” is the approach at Bottega Veneta. In this long golden ballgown, you’re guaranteed to win first prize in the unofficial best-dressed competition. For those who like things a bit more classic, shimmering black will also make a good impression, especially when combined with a cape complete with accented shoulders.
Every ball features dancing, and this pink fringed dress by Emporio Armani is perfect for that – after all, it jigs along with every step. The delicate fringes on the dress by Alexander McQueen also have a life of their own.
In the boudoir look there’s the pale pink dress by Miu Miu. Make a fashion statement by combining it with (fake) fur stilettos. If you like your ballgowns rather more refined, then go to Valentino for lots of lace and tulle. Or opt for sexy with Saint Laurent.
This year’s menswear designs are as classic as ever. At Bottega Veneta that means a golden waistcoat and a velvet bow tie, while Saint Laurent has gone for sparkling lapels. In contrast, Emporio Armani has combined a structured suit jacket with wide-legged trousers.
