When I saw this dress in the lookbook for Christian Dior‘s pre-fall collection, Kate Mara was the last person I thought I would see wearing it. Am I sorry she was? No way! I imagine the drop waist and loose fit would’ve been too frumpy on a very curvy figure and too overwhelming on a boyish frame. Kate has the perfect shape to take the dress from catwalk to the red carpet.
Kate attended the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of “The Ides of March” wearing the knee length delicate dress featuring a nude slip and an all-over paillete embroidered black overlay. I love the elements she added to it – with the exception of the clutch. Although I would have selected a black clutch, the nude “Very Prive” Christian Louboutin pumps brought out the shade of her dress underlay, and I loved the effortless twisted low side ponytail.
