One Brilliant Balmain Gold Dress & 6 Magazine Covers…
it is today’s Espresso Shot of News…
Just a few months ago, Miu Miu’s signature Fall dress with floral detailing, landed 3 Magazine covers. It created quite a stir, even being featured on both Elle UK and Vogue UK in the same month. Well it has happened again! This spectacular gold Balmain dress, from the Autumn / Winter 2010 collection, has made 6 magazine covers! No mean feat!
Worn down the runway by the gorgeous Anja Rubik, this Balmain dress is valued at £21,000. It has been worn by:
1 >> Natalia Vodianova for Harper’s Bazaar UK, Dec 10 issue
2 >> Abbey Lee Kershaw for Vogue Germany, Aug 10 issue
3 >> Anna Dello Russo for 10 Winter 2011
4 >> Cindy Crawford for Vogue India, Oct 10 issue
5 >> Claudia Schiffer for Zeit Magazine, the 40th Anniversary Issue
6 >> Toni Garrn for Vogue Spain, November 10 issue
Natalia Vodianova also chose to wear the full length version to the Woman of the Year awards hosted by Harper’s Bazaar UK.
Rumour also has it…
Anne Hathaway will wear this same dress for her cover of Elle UK’s December issue! Watch this space…
Balmain = Love!
It’s sparkly, metallic and has a deep plunging neckline – could there be a more perfect party frock for the coming Christmas season? Love it! xx
