Okay, so I'm not quite finished gushing over Stella McCartney's S/S 09 collection so you'll just have to go through another post about her and her designs. More specifically one certain design. I am talking about "the naked dress" worn by model Lara Stone on the catwalk. The nude colour of the dress creates a skin-on-skin effect, that (when done right) is nearly too hot to handle. And Stella McCartney definitely gets 10 out of 10 points for this dress! I love the combination of the off-the-shoulders, slouchy top half, to the short, but still not too short, body-gripping bottom half. It's also nice the way Lara Stone has her hair pulled back tightly, that her make-up is clean and fresh, and that the accessories and shoes are kept simple. This defintely screams sex on legs!
When it comes to this dress, my thoughts instantly flew to Carrie's famous naked dress that she wore on her first date with Mr. Big in season 1. And we all know what Carrie and Big ended up doing that evening. It might be easy for some to compare the naked dress to a slutty dress, but I am not one of them. I actually think that in addition to the LBD every woman should have hanging in her wardrobe, every woman should also have a naked dress. Knowing your body, and knowing the fine line between sexy and slutty will get you a long way when it comes to having the confidence to wear and pull off this type of dress. So take some tips from Stella and Carrie, and don't be afraid to show what you've got!
Who do think has the best "naked dress", Stella or Carrie? And do have the fashion courage to wear a dress like this?
