The other night Emmy Rossum attended the Santa Monica Museum of Art’s annual Precognito Gala in this dress by Tory Burch. I was struck by both the sweet simplicity and hints of glamour this mod inspired piece radiated. A lot of Peter Pan collars have been seen on celebrities as of late, sparking what I see as a new trend. That collar detail is what gives this piece it’s mod appeal, but this silk dress with a corsage print has so much more to offer.
The grey sheen of the silk lends to a sort of metallic look, which is further brought to attention thanks to the simple contrast offered by the white collar. Little spots of color reflect within the pattern of the dress which adds more visual interest. The slight flair at the hem gives Emmy a breezy, summery look while still maintaining refinement. Her grey heels, and flawless hair and makeup round out this beautiful look. Her small black clutch allows for more contrast, but I believe I would have rather seen her carrying something in a light powdery blue to bring out the hints of color in the dress, or in a gray similar to the color of her heels.
I love this look on her, perhaps because not a lot of people can pull it off. But as for Peter Pan collars, how are you guys feeling about them?? Is it a trend you would wear or would love to see more of on the red carpet??
