Who wore the Blugirl by Blumarine Spring 2010 RTW blue leopard print strapless dress better?
This fashion face-off is between:
Fergie, who wore the dress at the presentation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup kick-off celebration concert on June 9, 2010
Katy Perry, who styled the dress with a pink Juicy Couture belt on the cover of the February 2010 issue of Glamour magazine
So which of these two singers wore the blue leopard print dress with a ruffly skirt better for you – Fergie or Katy Perry?
It might be a bit unfair to hand this win to Katy Perry because she had been styled professionally for a magazine in her picture while Fergie’s picture is just a candid shot. I think both women look lovely in their dresses actually, and I love how both made the dress their own (Fergie with her rockin’ gladiator sandals and Katy with her pink heart belt).
I searched for the exact dress online but sadly, it’s either sold out or not stocked in online boutiques. I did however manage to find a couple of dresses which, in addition to this other leopard print dress post, should provide a nice selection of blue leopard print dresses:
If you’re looking for the perfect dress to wear this summer, I suggest you get the T-Bags V-Neck Mini Dress.

Don’t you just love how bright and colorful it is? And check out the contrasting zebra patterned self-belt. Normally, combining two prints with two different color schemes can be too much but with this one, they simply complement each other.

The beauty with this dress is that despite the bright and colorful print, you can still dress it up or down to fit the place or occasion you’re going to.
Put on some flat sandals and you can use it as a day dress or a beach cover-up:
Carrie Bradshaw has a favorite dress brand. If you’ve watched SATC2 (Sex and the City 2), then I’m sure you didn’t miss these dresses:

The dresses are by Halston Heritage and you could say her thing for it is the equivalent to her thing for Jimmy Choos.
Halston Heritage Striped Lurex Pleated Cocktail Dress, US$435; Halston Heritage Iconic Pleated Long Dress, US$895
If you identify yourself with Carrie and you love her style, why not emulate it by getting the real deal instead of the usual look for less? Get these dresses from Singer22.com and litera...
As with the passing of all great artists, their creations exponentially increase in value immediately after their death and their legacy lives on for much longer after that.
It might yet still be too early to say that of the late British designer Alexander McQueen (who passed away in February of this year), but one thing’s for sure: his creative mind has sparked yet another trend this time in the form of the reptile print.
On the covers of magazines, on the backs of celebrities, on the red carpet – these are just some of the high-profile places that the reptile print has recently been spotted. I’ve also been seeing the reptile print on headbands, bags, scarves and even on athletic sneakers, and of course, if reptile print accessories are in the vicinity, reptile print dresses can’t be too far away.
So, inspired by Alexander McQueen’s $3,000 reptile print dress, here are five reptile print dresses for $300 or less. Not only are these dresses “style on a shoestring”, but these also show that you can wear reptile print no matter what the occasion:
For a date or a night out
Here’s what I’ve been noticing lately – celebrities wearing dresses that look like it’s a two-piece blouse and skirt ensemble.
This one is definitely a trend. If you don’t believe me, just take a look at these pictures I’ve gathered, all of which were taken recently:
Kristen Stewart in Dolce & Gabbana; Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli; Katherine Heigl in Oscar Dela Renta
Mariana Klaveno in an unidentified cocktail dress and Jessica Biel (again) in Oscar Dela Renta
Marissa Miller in Alice + Olivia; Brandy in an unidentified cocktail dress; Laura Bell Bundy in Sheri Bodell
Now do you believe me? Well, what do you think? Do you like the trend? Will you ride along with it like these celebs? Or do you think getting the two piece look from a dress is simply a little redundant?
Well I like it. Besides, why go through the hassle of wearing two pieces of clothing when you can slip and zip your way into just one and get the same result?
If you agree with me, then you will definitely be interested in these combo dresses from Alice + Olivia:
Military was one of the major trends forecasted for the year 2010, but it really took me a while to warm up to it. But now that I’ve accepted it (right smack dab in the middle of the year), I’m totally on the military bandwagon. Hope I’m not too late.
I especially love how the military trend looks on dresses. The mix of straight lines, neutral hues and clean tailoring with the femininity of dresses has a really strong appeal for me.
If you’re not totally sold on the military trend yet and need some visual convincing, here are 7 military inspired dresses that just might get you standing at attention:
Alice + Olivia Wrapped Goddess Dress, $264.00
Alice + Olivia Bethany Sequin Bustier Peplum Dress, $495.00
Every girl has a fall back dress, you know, the kind you simply go back to when you don’t know what to wear. Usually, it’s classic looking piece that is also versatile and comfortable.
If you don’t have one yet, or perhaps you’re current one is already too worn out, maybe we can help you find a fresh piece. Visit Zappos.com and look at the dress collection of these three (3) dress brands – Patagonia, Prana, and Lolë.
Patagonia offers the widest in terms of styles and color variety. The designs are classic, versatile, and clean; and flatter most body types too. A couple of its dresses are actually top sellers at
Look who we spotted wearing the Alice + Olivia Charlie Embellished Ombre Dress!
It’s none other than Maria Menounos (best known for her work on “Access Hollywood”) who wore the dress for the star-studded season 7 premiere of the hit HBO series “Entourage” last June 16.
We’ve already featured the Alice + Olivia dress two times before, so it’s quite a thrill to finally see it worn on the … brown carpet? Hey, it’s still a carpet and we’ll take whatever we can get.
Here are a couple of Maria Menounos’ pictures at the “Entourage” event:

This dress hangs on Maria Menounos a lot better than it does on the model. The dress really does look better on someone with a bit more meat and Maria Menounos’ curves fill out this dress very nicely. Maria finished off her look with a nude bejeweled hard clutch and sand-colored
Kim Kardashian’s obsession with one sleeve dresses last year isn’t over yet.
Before I show you the latest Kim Kardashian picture, let’s take a short trip down memory lane and count the number of times Kim K wore a one sleeve dress in 2009:
#1: At the Jill Stuart Spring 2010 fashion show at The New York Public Library on September 14, 2009
#2: At the Baby Phat fashion show at Roseland Ballroom on September 15, 2009
#3: At the 61st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards at the Nokia Theatre in LA
#4: To her appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on October 1, 2009
#5: To celebrate her 29th birthday and to attend the “Lamar Odom Launches Rich Soil At Kitson” event on October 21, 2009
I thought that was the end of it but apparently Kim Kardashian is still trying to make one sleeve dresses happen this 2010.
Here are pictures of Kim Kardashian from this year still workin’ the one sleeve dress. And this time, she’s added shoulder pads:
January 19, 2010 – Kim Kardashian at the launch of Mel B’s Sugar Factory Couture Lollipop at Guys and Dolls Lounge in LA
June 19, 2010 – Kardashian sisters Kim and Kourtney attend the seventh anniversary party for “Vegas Magazine” at the Surrender Nightclub in Las Vegas, Nevada
Do you think the one sleeve dress with shoulder pads is going to catch on (if it hasn’t already)? At least it looks like Kim’s influenced one person – her sister Kourtney.
