Temperley London Bijoux Jeweled Gown: All Swept Up

Temperley London Bijoux Jeweled Gown

Last year brought us the mullet dress, but 2013 is offering up something slightly more refined. A play on designer Alice’s popular Scarlett dress, this Temperley London gown has been draped and swathed to perfection, then pinned ever so boldly with a crystal brooch. The vintage touch sparkles like a royal jewel and brings extra attention to the oyster-colored draping. This is transitional dressing at its best, showing off some leg (which means incredible, statement-making shoes are required) while also providing a little protection from the elements. But let’s be honest – we don’t love this dress for its function. We love it for the drama! Heading to the opera anytime soon? There’s no better way to upstage the production than in a silky, bejeweled gown like this. And as gorgeous as the front of the dress is, the back is even more elegant with black silk-satin falling uninterrupted from shoulder to shoe. Available on NET-A-PORTER for $1,820.
