April 11, 2012 Runway To Red Carpet

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?

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

    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?

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

  4. Shaina April 14, 2012 at 6:13 am #

    Beautiful! She looks like an elegant mermaid.

  5. Amy April 12, 2012 at 7:59 pm #

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

  6. Louise April 12, 2012 at 11:52 am #

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

  7. kat April 12, 2012 at 9:24 am #

    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.

  8. roxana April 12, 2012 at 7:24 am #

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

  9. Wyatt April 12, 2012 at 5:10 am #

    Best dressed of the year for sure.

  10. lola April 12, 2012 at 4:20 am #

    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.

  11. Prudence April 12, 2012 at 4:12 am #

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

  12. Tina April 12, 2012 at 2:51 am #

    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…

  13. Nat39 April 11, 2012 at 11:52 pm #

    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.

  14. bm April 11, 2012 at 9:06 pm #

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

  15. Aline April 11, 2012 at 7:19 pm #

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

  16. Jill April 11, 2012 at 7:02 pm #

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

  17. John April 11, 2012 at 6:42 pm #

    She looks perfect!
    Love Coco!

  18. Riley April 11, 2012 at 4:26 pm #

    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.

  19. Louisa April 11, 2012 at 3:47 pm #

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

  20. Riley April 11, 2012 at 3:22 pm #

    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 3:54 pm #

      it would have been great on Jessica too

  21. Zee April 11, 2012 at 3:03 pm #

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

  22. fromchi-town April 11, 2012 at 3:03 pm #

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

  23. Rebecca Z April 11, 2012 at 3:01 pm #

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

  24. harris April 11, 2012 at 2:50 pm #

    love love love BDOTY

  25. Carolina Roq April 11, 2012 at 2:46 pm #


  26. Christine April 11, 2012 at 2:44 pm #

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

  27. Carmen April 11, 2012 at 2:33 pm #

    She looks amazing¡¡

  28. Adralina April 11, 2012 at 2:15 pm #

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

  29. dee April 11, 2012 at 1:56 pm #

    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 3:33 pm #


    • Nat April 11, 2012 at 4:25 pm #

      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.

  30. April April 11, 2012 at 1:43 pm #

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

  31. Alina April 11, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

    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 4:24 am #

      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.

  32. Beta April 11, 2012 at 1:29 pm #

    she looks sensational!!

  33. Yeliz April 11, 2012 at 1:11 pm #

    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.

  34. Like, ROAR! April 11, 2012 at 1:09 pm #

    I simply can’t get over the shoulder details.

    • CreoleLady April 11, 2012 at 1:40 pm #

      +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 4:18 pm #

        +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 4:32 pm #

      me too. the shoulder details baffle me.

      • Tiffany Nicole April 11, 2012 at 8:51 pm #

        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.

  35. Zineb April 11, 2012 at 12:47 pm #

    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.

  36. chisyelda April 11, 2012 at 12:35 pm #

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

  37. EmmaWoodhouse April 11, 2012 at 12:31 pm #

    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 3:10 pm #

      I agree. She looks gorgeous. Definitely BDOTW!

  38. Kaz April 11, 2012 at 12:21 pm #

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

  39. Voldamawt April 11, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

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

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

  40. robbie April 11, 2012 at 12:12 pm #

    she looks amazing.
