You may be wondering why, but this Kimberly Ovitz Jacob long sleeve dress was one of the most worn dresses on the red carpet in 2009.

This crew-neck dress features pintucks throughout and an exposed back zip, but on the red carpet it seems quite plain and simple.

Judging from these ladies simplicity is what they were going for, as many didn’t over accessorize the look.

Usual candidates for this award go to Black Halo or Alice + Olivia, but celebs seemed to want to seek out newer designers this year.

Kimberly Ovitz was one of the many new designers we discovered this year, but the Martin jersey dress as worn by Anna Lynne McCord and Olivia Wilde was my favourite from the Fall 2009 collection.

This dress is still available to purchase from
