Coco Rocha In Zac Posen – 9th Annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete

It’s usually hard to pick one favourite dress from a season, but the Zac Posen Spring 2012 tulle edelweiss embroidered gown was my favourite by a very long mile.

I had hoped to see the gown on the red carpet during awards season, so when time passed by my next hope was to see it at the Met Gala next month.

My heart did skip a beat when I saw the gorgeous Coco Rocha wearing my favourite gown to the 9th annual Spring Dinner Dance New Year’s In April: A Fool’s Fete at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York City last night.

I couldn’t think of a more worthy candidate to wear this gown (excluding Iman of course).

The supermodel grabs the first BDOTW nomination looking sensational in the breath-taking gown.

I love how graceful and elegant she looks and that she opted to wear her hair up to show off those butterfly wings.

Do you love this as much as I do?

    she looks amazing.

  2. Voldamawt April 11, 2012 at 12:12 #

    She looks A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! So statuesque!

    One of my personal favourites too, and agree a very worthy candidate <3

  3. Kaz April 11, 2012 at 12:21 #

    Heaven. She looks perfect. Call off the search – we found another BDOTY nom!

  4. EmmaWoodhouse April 11, 2012 at 12:31 #

    BDOTW!!!!! Without a doubt. She looks so amazing here in this fabulous dress that it’s almost ridiculous! I LOVE it! Serious candidate for BDOTY!

    • Francy April 11, 2012 at 15:10 #

      I agree. She looks gorgeous. Definitely BDOTW!

  5. chisyelda April 11, 2012 at 12:35 #

    i doubt anything is going to top this off for me this week.

  6. Zineb April 11, 2012 at 12:47 #

    Loooove it !! I aslo longed to see this spectatcular gown in the red carpet. I was hoping for a Hollywood diva to wear it, but Coco does it justice too.

  7. Like, ROAR! April 11, 2012 at 13:09 #

    I simply can’t get over the shoulder details.

    • CreoleLady April 11, 2012 at 13:40 #

      +1. Also prefer the polished marcel waves on the runway over Coco’s shaggy ‘do. However, the beautiful embroidered overlay pooling at her feet is really spectacular.

      • DivaDebbi (Beauty and Fashion Blog) April 11, 2012 at 16:18 #

        +1. It is a spectacular dress, no question, but I prefer everything about it on the runway. The shoulder detail on Coco looks like fairy wings. I also think her hairstyle is WAY too casual for a dress of this importance.

    • bee7 April 11, 2012 at 16:32 #

      me too. the shoulder details baffle me.

      • Tiffany Nicole April 11, 2012 at 20:51 #

        all that sheer paneling above the bust is a fail. If she were going to a Little Mermaid premiere I might be able to handle this.

  8. Yeliz April 11, 2012 at 13:11 #

    This gown was one of my favorites too and finally we got to see it on the red carpet. Coco looks enchanting. BDOTW worthy for sure.

  9. Beta April 11, 2012 at 13:29 #

    she looks sensational!!

  10. Alina April 11, 2012 at 13:40 #

    She looks beautiful, but I can’t help feeling a little disappointed – I wished someone like Kate Winslet had worn this dress at a bigger event.

    • Kennedy April 12, 2012 at 04:24 #

      I do wish someone with more curves had worn this dress but I think Kate would have drowned in it. It needs height and Katie, while beautiful and a real woman, is not very tall. Coca works it but I think the runway model OWNS it.

  11. April April 11, 2012 at 13:43 #

    Perfection from the neck down. The messy hair and makeup are the only thing keeping this from earning a 10 for me.

  12. dee April 11, 2012 at 13:56 #

    I am not loving this as much as everyone else. I think her hair could have looked more polished. I also think someone with more curves would have looked better in this dress as well.

    • manja April 11, 2012 at 15:33 #

      +1

    • Nat April 11, 2012 at 16:25 #

      +2.
      I mean, the dress is INCREDIBLE, but I prefer it on the runway rather than on her.
      I agree that it would look better on someone less skinny.

      This is definitely worth a BDOTW nomination, but mostly because of the dress itself.

  13. Adralina April 11, 2012 at 14:15 #

    I’ve been dying to see this dress on the redcarpet and god bless coco, she definitely did this dress justice!!

  14. Carmen April 11, 2012 at 14:33 #

    She looks amazing¡¡

  15. Christine April 11, 2012 at 14:44 #

    Tall glass of water! Rocha is full of the drama and I know people think she OTT but I love that about her LOL.

  16. Carolina Roq April 11, 2012 at 14:46 #

    wonderful…

  17. harris April 11, 2012 at 14:50 #

    love love love BDOTY

  18. Rebecca Z April 11, 2012 at 15:01 #

    I love the dress and she certainly has the body for it. Not so excited about her hair….

  19. fromchi-town April 11, 2012 at 15:03 #

    She looks phenomenal. She totally does justice to the beautiful gown. Definite BDOTW worthy.

  20. Zee April 11, 2012 at 15:03 #

    OMG! What a beautiful dress, and she looks perfect in it! BDOTY candidate for me too.

  21. Riley April 11, 2012 at 15:22 #

    I was hoping Jessica Chastain would wear this. Coco looks amazing, but I would like to see it on someone who isn’t a size 0.

    • Fashion Critic April 11, 2012 at 15:54 #

      it would have been great on Jessica too

  22. Louisa April 11, 2012 at 15:47 #

    I think she looks great!!!!!! but… now that you say Iman, I think it would look better on her!
    But Coco does look AMAZING!!!

  23. Riley April 11, 2012 at 16:26 #

    I love the dress but as a model you’d think she’d wear it better. I don’t know why but the runway model looks so much better in it.

  24. John April 11, 2012 at 18:42 #

    She looks perfect!
    Love Coco!

  25. Jill April 11, 2012 at 19:02 #

    oh. my. God. I am not even sure I’ve ever seen any dress more ebautiful than this one. ever.

  26. Aline April 11, 2012 at 19:19 #

    OH MY GOD! Be right back, picking my jaw from the floor.

  27. bm April 11, 2012 at 21:06 #

    She looks gorgeous as always. Yes, BDOTW for sure.

  28. Nat39 April 11, 2012 at 23:52 #

    The hair is certainly a bit of let down, but the beautiful gown looks fantastic on her, don’t feel the need to wish someone curvier would’ve worn it. BDOTW worthy no doubt.

  29. Tina April 12, 2012 at 02:51 #

    She looks great and the dress is phenomenal, but I keep getting the feeling that something is missing from making this truly spectacular. Perhaps it is lackluster hairstyle…

  30. Prudence April 12, 2012 at 04:12 #

    beautyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy the only person that could rock this dress is iman correct on that! future wedding dress?? yesss

  31. lola April 12, 2012 at 04:20 #

    i just dont like this. The color washes her out. I am not sure if its the lighting but her hair appears a bit dusty.

  32. Wyatt April 12, 2012 at 05:10 #

    Best dressed of the year for sure.

  33. roxana April 12, 2012 at 07:24 #

    the dress is beautiful, but the hair is not perfect.

  34. kat April 12, 2012 at 09:24 #

    The dress is perfect, no doubt, and she surely can pull them off, but I just canť get over Coco’s messy hair and the fact that the colour completely washes her out. For me, it’s thumbs down.

    Too bad that Iman didn’t wear this dress instead.

  35. Louise April 12, 2012 at 11:52 #

    What a dress. I vote BDOTW worthy, for sure.

  36. Amy April 12, 2012 at 19:59 #

    apart from the hair everything looks amazing!! well played Coco

  37. Shaina April 14, 2012 at 06:13 #

    Beautiful! She looks like an elegant mermaid.

  38. hally April 14, 2012 at 08:02 #

    love this! Nicole Kidman would also look amazing in this gown, she hasn’t worn anything as nice as this in awhile.

  39. Niki April 14, 2012 at 13:11 #

    Oh, I think I just fell in love! The colour! The train! The little butterfly sleeve thingies! The embroidery! The train!!!! Just one question: Is it wrong to want to marry a dress?

  40. taksi April 15, 2012 at 05:38 #

    The dress is a bit much for me, seems too Disny princessy.
