Stella McCartney’s Black Sheer Polka Dot Lucia Dress

Stella McCartney’s Black Sheer Polka Dot Lucia Dress

Polka dots are a favourite of mine.  I can hardly resist anything with polka dots on it.  Polka dot dresses and polka dot thingies have never gone out of fashion really.  The classic black polka dots on white have stayed trendy through all seasons.  Variations brought about in polka dots have always been a hit and the latest entrant (it’s been quite a long time that this trend has started, but its still going strong) is the black sheer polka dot Lucia dress by Stella McCartney.

Stella McCartney's Black Sheer Polka Dot Lucia Dress

What makes this “same old” bodycon black dress different is the sheer polka dot sleeve and sheer polka dotted side panel.  This body-hugging bodycon goes just below the knees and looks best with black pumps with a plain black clutch.  The most remarkable aspect about this dress is that you wouldn’t need to pair it with any other accessory or jewellery.

This polka dot dress was launched in Stella McCartney’s Fall 2011 collection and since then its popularity has grown uninhibited.

This Stella McCartney polka dot dress has caught up big time with Hollywood celebrities and the who’s who of Hollywood are seen sporting and wearing this dress to premieres, award functions, and even reality shows without labeling each other copy cats.

Everyone from Kate Winslet to Susan Sarandon and Jane Fonda are flaunting their body types in this bodycon dress.

This trend is yet to catch up in Bollywood, as I have seen none of our Bollywood divas yet with this oh-so-hot fashion trend; even Sonam Kapoor who keeps herself abreast with international fashion trends has not yet sported the famous Stella McCartney creation.

Though, I have described the dress in layman’s terms, a more appropriate description about Stella McCartney’s Black Sheer Polka Dot Lucia Dress would go like this:

Model2

Black stretch cotton blend pencil dress from Stella McCartney featuring a sheer panel down the right side, an arm with tonal applique polka dots and nude underlayer. The dress has a round neck, full-length sleeves, a split hem and a concealed zip to the back for closure. (from http://fashionfinder.asos.com).

Let’s look at the celebrities who have sported this famous creation by Stella McCartney and you decide for yourself who looks the hottest in this polka dot dress.

Kate Winslet at the Mildred Pierce premiere, she rocks this dress completely.

A 50+ Kris Jenner (mother of Kim Kardashian) wears this polka dot wonder with equal ease as Kate Winslet. Ms. Jenner seems to have worn a black something through the sheer.

Doutzen Kroes attended Missoni for Target launch collection party held on September 7 in New York City wearing the polka dot creation.  Doutzen Kroes has worn a slip underneath but that does not take away anything, looks still gorgeous!

World’s highest-paid female model Gisele Bundchen graced the cover of Vogue magazine wearing the famous Stella McCartney bodycon creation.

Jennifer Lopez wearing the Stella McCartney creation on the judging panel of American Idol. Her frame is not completely visible behind the panel, but her hair in a bun is equally attention grabbing :| :|

American Idol

Jane Fonda flaunted her perfectly toned and fit body through this sheer side paneled Stella McCartney Lucia Dress on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.

The ever-graceful and smiling Susan Sarandon made an appearance in the famous dress at the New York 2011 Somaly Mam Foundation Benefit Gala, though she almost killed the beauty of the dress with her white bra strap thingy :eeks:

Tess Daly on the sets of the famous show on BBC “Strictly Come Dancing.” Tess Daly has worn a high and tight ponytail similar to Doutzen Kroes.

TV personality Rocsi Diaz attended the Latina Magazine’s 15th anniversary celebration at Espace wearing this polka dot creation. She wore the dress with straight ironed hair and high heels.

Rosci Diaz

Now, let us look into some variations of the same dress:

Teen sensation Selena Gomez at the 6th Annual Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party. Though this is not a bodycon dress, it looks equally good and perfect for a teenager to wear.

Ah yes, you can buy similar dresses at £29.99 at Republic.co.uk and for 1299 pounds at  http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/171907, wanna try your luck??

So, who do you think looked hot in this glamorous Stella McCartney creation, my vote goes to Jane Fonda and Kate Winslet, what do you think???

I think the one worn by Selena Gomez was the only variation worth considering. :D :D
