Jessica Stam In Valentino – 2012 American Ballet Theatre Spring Gala

My first reaction to seeing Jessica Stam at the American Ballet Theatre’s 2012 Gala was ‘What is Jessie J doing in New York?’.

I don’t think I will ever get used to seeing Jessica with dark raven locks.

The model looked sensational attending this glamorous event wearing a Valentino gown.

This striking signature lace gown with a lace draping and cascading ruffles was beautifully styled with a matching Valentino mini ‘VaVaVoom’ leather shoulder bag (worn as a clutch) and bedazzling peep-toes.

She gave us more bedazzlement with silver cuffs and stunning statement earrings.

You can buy Jessica’s Valentino bag from Net-A-Porter.com.

        Dear Fashion Deities,

        Please, oh please, let this flawless look end up on the BDOTW list. I’ve not smiled and swooned so much all day!

    Gorgeous. Love how she found the balance between looking super-glam and overdone. Just the right amount of jewelry and the matchy-matchy feel of her red lips and clutch actually works.

    She looks gorgeous. BDOTW worthy in my opinion.

    Totally stunning and a worthy BDOTW contender!!

  11. Alina May 15, 2012 at 13:37 #

    Outstanding! BDOTW worthy for me.

    Beautiful, neck to toe. The hair looks too dark and jarring to my eye. Otherwise, perfection.

    • Nat39 May 15, 2012 at 19:29 #

      The hair is too jarring to my eye as well, way too dark.
      Also can’t help but think of gold jewellery with this look instead of silver.

  13. dee May 15, 2012 at 13:47 #

    She looks lovely. I like the dark hair as I think it makes her features stand out.

  14. noo May 15, 2012 at 13:53 #

    i loooooooove this!!! brunette jessica is sort of getting on my nerves but nothing is distracting from her lovely dress and how she accessorized! bdotw worthy.

  15. rebecca o May 15, 2012 at 14:17 #

    Love it.

    • Emi May 15, 2012 at 17:00 #

      Me, too.

  16. fromchi-town May 15, 2012 at 14:20 #

    Woooow!!!!! She totally shut it down!! Its perfection – she looks beautiful.

  17. effieee May 15, 2012 at 15:48 #

    Now that you mention it, I see the resemblance to Jessie J as well. If only Jessie J was this chic.

  18. Riley May 15, 2012 at 16:05 #

    The bag has me salivating.

    She doesn’t pull of the dark hair. This is a very Valentino look.

    I like how Jess captures the spirit of the designer in each look- remember when she wore Gareth Pugh and went all edgy? Here is went all glamorous.

  19. lu May 15, 2012 at 18:08 #

    Now, that’s how you do stunning!

  20. EmmaWoodhouse May 15, 2012 at 19:57 #

    Perfection, head to toe. Glamorous yet effortless–I’m loving the raven hair contrasted with the red. She is my BDOTW until further notice! LOVE!

  21. Tahj May 15, 2012 at 20:38 #

    Whoa, I didn’t know she went brunette. Atleast those stunning cat eyes of hers stands out more now. She should wear blue.

  22. Christine May 15, 2012 at 21:16 #

    BDOTW! Hot damn :D She looks drop dead gorgeous. I love her new dark locks especially with that vibrant red.

  23. Nat May 15, 2012 at 23:32 #

    BDOTW, for sure!
    Maybe I’m biased, because basically I never met a red Valentino I didn’t like, but I think she looks stunning!
    By the way, which collection is this gown from? Or is it custom-made? I’m just curious, because this truly looks like that “classic” Valentino which I always loved.
