Peggy Hartanto’s Little White Dress stormed across the runway and jumped on my must-have list. Why? First off, it has a peplum.
It also has see-through panels suspending a banded hem and gracefully curving to show a tasteful stretch of thigh.. so tasteful, in fact that it can do triple duty on the promo tour for your new thing (movie/ book/ band/ artshow/ celeb-fest/ whatever), meeting the parents of your significant other, and still make a splash at a work do. Especially if work is at the law firm of Suits, where women are not allowed in the building in an outfit costing less than $2000.
There’s also the shoulders.. Oh those cutaway shoulders! The shoulders are such a thing of beauty, and if you don’t have to cover them (work, culture, etc.) hold them proud and stand up straight. (Even in the photographer’s mosh pit at BIFW, I finally stopped slouching when I saw this apparition.)
Besides all those commendables, it has that Audrey Hepburn gamine quality, and needs no jewellery, so you can leave a little on the credit card to pay your airfare to Cannes. Or wherever. If you aren’t being taken on a private jet, that is. And you should, hummingbird, you should.
Just a thought.
Make them roll out the red carpet.
You should, hummingbird, you should.
