Dust off your fanciful frocks and espadrille wedges – you don’t want to miss this garden party! Stylish stars like Rihanna, Kate Beckinsale and Lizzy Caplan donned a bouquet of flirty, floral summer dresses that were all about the details – think large blooming prints and 3D sequin-petal embellishments. From sunflower embroidery to lacy floral, there was nothing earthy about these prim but not-so-proper looks. Consider this trend Jane-Austen-meets-Hollywood on the red carpet.
TV star Lizzy took summertime chic to the streets of New York, stepping out in a canary-yellow Roksanda Ilincic Spring 2016 dress and chunky gold platform Kurt Geiger London sandals. The eye-popping hue was also a perfect fit for Rihanna's season-savvy day look – she paired a lemony Dior clutch with her white Adam Selman sundress, which bloomed with a Crayola-bright floral print.
Meanwhile at the Dior Resort 2017 show, A-list attendee Kate channeled Old Hollywood glamour in a black cutout Dior gown stamped with a white floral print and anchored by pointy black Louboutin heels. Kate Mara brought her ladylike elegance to the event in a floral white lace mini, while Elizabeth Olsen (in a sculpted couture confection adorned with rainbow-sequined cap sleeves) rounded out their A-list front-row squad!
