Bella Heathcote made a return to the red carpet for the Cartier Precious Garage Party on Friday (November 29) in Sydney, Australia.
If you’re anything like me, this ruffled and pleated dress would’ve had you reminiscing about two distinct collections: Alber Elbaz’s Lanvin Spring 2008 collection and Stella McCartney’s Spring 2010 collection.
However, this look hails from the Spring 2019 collection of Romance Was Born.
I love the dress, but I feel like a Chloe Sevigny or Lupita Nyong’o would’ve sold this look to me with a bit more gusto. I can just picture Lupita making those ruffles sing on the red carpet, and the colour would look glorious on her.
I wanted to love the shoes also, but the style is not working with dress.
Nice ideas, but this isn’t bringing me as much joy as I would expected it to.
