Jessica wore this gorgeous Fall/Winter 2011 couture gown to the Fashion Group International’s 28th annual Night of Stars gala held at Cipriani Wall Street last night in New York City. She was on hand at the fête to present a Fashion Group International award to Mr. Valli.
I had been waiting for this gown to be worn on the red carpet; it was one of the dresses that captured my eye when it made its way down the catwalk this past July in Paris. What I was mostly mesmerized by was the molten gold cluster belt that was wrapped around the waist.
Jessica wore my gown and didn’t wear the belt. Strike one.
I know she couldn’t have worn her hair down because it would have covered those tiered sleeves, but there had to have been another way than leaving that distracting center part. Strike two.
She may not have worn my favorite, but she did wear a leaf belt from the collection.
Her Fred Leighton jewelry – absolutely stunning – but they didn’t look right with the dress. Strike three.
I’m done now.
