I think I have an obsession with the name Alexander. Why, you ask? Because two of my absolute favorite designers are named like that. Of couse, we’re talking about Alexander McQueen and Alexander Wang.
Today, it’s all about Wang and his perfect creation of an LWD (=Little White Dress). He’s the best when it comes to mixing sexy with edgy chic. Wang’s color palette is mostly confined to black and white (and everything in between), but he really owns these colors, so I don’t mind.
This draped silk jersey dress from Wang’s Spring 2009 collection made me instantly swoon. Isn’t it the prettiest little thing of fabric you’ve ever seen? Me loves it.
The dress is currently up for pre-oder at Saks and I’m sure it will go like hot cakes. If you have 600 bucks to spare and there’s still room for a perfect LWD in your closet, grab your chance to infinite glee and buy it!

I would style it like Saks who copied the look from Wang’s runway presentation of the dress. Black chunky heels or a pair of gladiators would be a perfect fit. Finish it off with a black cropped blazer (sleeves rolled up) and you’re set.
I haven’t posted any “Dresses of the Day” for a while so it was way about time going back to featuring beautiful and outstanding dresses on a daily basis ~ just like this floor-length turquoise ruffle silk dress from Temperley London’s Fall 2008 collection.
The collection consisted of many beautifully made pieces a lot of which instantly wowed me at first sight, this “Long Dragon Dress, Pandora Belt” as it is officially named on Temperley London‘s website in particular. And I’m loving EVERYTHING about the dress – from the vivid turquoise color and the contrasting wide belt to the cascading ruffles on the skirt and the sweetheart neckline, the dress is simply STUNNING. Being currently on the top of my wishlist I hope to see one of the classier celebs rocking it on a red carpet real soon.
Temperley London – Fall 2008 Ready-to-Wear Collection
Long Dragon Dress, Pandora Belt
Kinda had a crush on this dress today. It certainly screams summer perfection, doesn’t it? Wear this floaty chiffon dress with a big chunky leather belt and your best pair of stilettos to give it a sexy twist or mix it with flats and a comfy cashmere cardigan if you tend to satisfy the romantic fashionista in you.
Another day, another Dress of the Day. Today’s DotD is a super sweet and lovely purple ruffle neck dress from MINT by Jodi Arnold. That girl really knows how to design cute and fun dresses with a sexy twist.
This gorgeous silk ruffle neck dress is currently on sale for $375. Go grab it while it’s still available.
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 Marchesa from the Resort 2008 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.
