This item is a TOP PICK of Emily Jackson, the July Users' Choice Winner of the Vanity Fair International Best-Dressed Challenge. "I love the feminine silhouette of this dress, and the metal studs give it a bit of an edge."
Look 46 from the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2013 Runway: a gleaming metal-on-white dress. Christopher Bailey drew inspiration for the "Trench Kisses" Fall Collection from Christine Keeler, an English showgirl who gained notoriety canoodling with politicians in the early 1960s. The scandalous idea is evident in the body hugging fit and shiny hardware, drawing a fun juxtaposition to this clean and classic Burberry silhouette.
