Eva Mendes, Lady Gaga, and Blake Lively are just a few of the many A-list ladies who love Black Halo and its modern-day interpretations of Jackie O’s timeless style. Founding designer Laurel Berman creates meticulously tailored mini-dresses, pencil skirts, and other to-die-for creations whose unique silhouettes and expert draping make looking flawless seem simple. Cleverly placed zippers and cutouts add just the right amount of sex appeal — think provocative, not over-the-top. From the iconic Jackie O dress (a curve-hugging sheath in black or blue gabardine) to slinky slit-leg gowns and separates, Black Halo epitomizes classic glamour.
Zac Posen’s contemporary Z Spoke line is as much a celebration of retro-charged femininity and razor-sharp tailoring as his high-end collection — with a young, coquettish elegance. Look for precision details (origami-like cuffs, tiered ruffle panels, classic box pleats) and vintage-inspired flourishes (sweetheart necklines, exaggerated flared hems, silk tie sashes) on A-line party dresses, kicky skirts, fluid silk gowns, and chic collarless jackets.
From party-ready frocks to winter-ready jackets, these must-have picks are sure to go fast.
Get inspired by the glamour of Hollywood (and A-list stunners like Jennifer Lawrence and Kerry Washington) with this array of show-stopping designer gowns — from best-dressed list favorites like Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier, and Giorgio Armani — and standout accents, from jewel-covered box clutches to strappy stiletto heels.
Ready your wardrobe for the warmer season with these flattering, feminine pieces.
