Forget moment of silence, I’m going to need you to hold your breathe in honour of this leather dress Rosario Dawson is wearing. This photo was taken a very, very long time ago at the Met Gala back in May of this year. However, I do BASS approved posts whenever I see something that makes me smile.
The Story: I was on Pinterest, you know just pinnin’ n shyt, when this dress appeared on my dashboard and a literally shrieked (If my reaction isn’t audible, I don’t post the outfit.) This leather trend that’s been going on for sometime now is really doing if for me because I think leather is classy, and timeless. No? *Karl Lagerfield voice*
Her dress is by Calvin Klein, and I just love the way it has a defined waistline, created by the band (and the fact that Rosario’s body is bangin’). Also, the tailoring is perfect and even though the dress is pretty simple, I think the seams add a little touch of character to it. The flare at the bottom is what gives this dress its “elegance factor” that it would not have without it. The collar of the dress also draws attention to her face, which is very natural looking.
Her hair and accessories are minimal, and I like this because leather can be a overpowering and if classy is the look you’re going for, then simple, chic buns never fail. The only pop of colour we get is the gorgeous blue earrings she’s wearing by Fred Leighton.
I love this look! Do you?
