Rihanna - Hervé Léger Bandage Dresses

If you couldn’t tell by now, Rihanna is what you call a dedicated Hervé Léger fan addict.

December 04, 2006 – 2006 Billboard LG After Party

Her love for the curve hugging bandage-type dresses began when she stunned everyone in a strapless metallic grey micro mini at the 2006 Billboard LG After Party back in December 2006. Ever since Rihanna decided to regularly come back to wearing the ultra sexy dresses on the red carpet.

February 10, 2007 – Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Party

Two months later, Rihanna found it was time again for a new Hervé Léger getup and went with a cleavage heavy pale pink mini dress to hit the red carpet of Clive Davis’ Pre-Grammy Party in February 2007.

June 08, 2007 – Venus Breeze “Celebrity Legs of a Goddess” Presentation

Rihanna revived her love for body con dresses when she was chosen to have “celebrity legs of a goddess” in June 2007. The electric blue body-hugging skirt Rihanna wore at the event perfectly complimented her feminine silhouette.

Rating: ★★★½☆

June 27, 2007 – BET Awards 2007

The 2007 BET Awards came and so did Rihanna Рdressed up in a white vintage Herv̩ L̩ger frock which is my personal favorite yet. She was a pleasure to look at and totally rocked the red carpet being clearly the best dressed at the show.

Rating: ★★★★½

June 27, 2007 – Jermaine Dupri’s BET Awards After Party

Rihanna was still in HL mood when she later changed into a black halter dress for Jermaine Dupri’s BET Awards After Party. To make her outfit edgier, Rihanna paired her black ensemble with a pair of neon yellow pointy pumps.

When I was browsing MINT by Jodi Arnold’s website, I discovered an asymmetrical turquoise Grecian dress which instantly reminded me of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s lemon Grecian style dress made famous by Paris Hilton who wore the amazing dress to a taping of Letterman in January 2008.

Are the similarities between these two dresses too many to call it coincidence? The 3.1 Phillip Lim Silk pleated Grecian dress costs $795 and can be bought at NET-A-PORTER in yellow and black.

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any details about the turquoise MINT by Jodi Arnold Summer 2008 dress or retailers who sell it, but from what I know the prices for MINT dresses are about $300-$500.

UPDATE: The turquoise asymmetric silk jersey dress by Jodi Arnold is now also available at NET-A-PORTER. Price: $365.

I know it’s been really quiet here lately. We’ve been doing a lot of offline stuff, but we never forgot about our fashion blog baby, so this post will be the birth of a new category here on Profashionelle: the Red Carpet Gold Star. An award given to those who managed to stand out on the red carpet, making us remember their dresses & appearances even after years.

Such is what British actress Keira Knightley managed to do when she stunned everyone in a beautiful white sleek column Valentino dress and a pair of amazing vintage Cartier earrings to the 63rd Golden Globe Awards in 2006. And frankly, isn’t this dress one of the most beautiful dresses you’ve ever seen? I happen to think so and love everything about it (shape, color and the gorgeous flower-shaped belt, of course).

This dress is one of my favourite red carpet pieces of all time. But it’s not just the dress that’s close to heavenly perfection – it’s Keira wearing it with such grace and elegance. She just oozes glamour. Dress, hair, make up, accessoires – she’s a perfect ten here. Oh my God, I could be staring at these pictures for hours.

Rating: ★★★★★

P.S.: If you’re looking for a look-for-less alternative to Keira’s Valentino dress, there’s an affordable copycat version availabe over at FAVIANA. Nowhere near the original, but a good choice for fashionistas on a budget.

Dress of the Day: Marchesa Silk Chiffon Gown

Dress of the Day - Marchesa Coral Silk Chiffon Gown

Marchesa Coral Silk Chiffon Gown

Time to kick off a new category here on this blog – it’s called “Dress of the Day“. From now on you’ll find your daily dose of dress perfection covered here on Profashionelle. And we start off with this beautiful silk chiffon gown by from the collection.

If I was ever to walk a red carpet, Marchesa would definitely be among my TOP 5 of considered designers (Christian Dior, Valentino, Elie Saab and Versace would be the others). And this beautiful Grecian-inspired floor-length evening gown is one of the reasons why. Love the empire waist, the gold embroidered bodice, the crossover straps, everything. I prefer the white version, but the coral one is edgier. Which color do you like best?

Definitely a red carpet worthy piece of fabric. Cash out $4.785 and call it yours. Pocket change.
