White, feather-embellished dresses have been hot on the red carpet this season, with stars like Anna Kendrick, Marion Cotillard, and Camilla Belle wearing the look. It’s a fairly unusual look, but it works for a couple of reasons. For one thing, it’s hard for even those with perfect figures to wear white because it has a way of magnifying flaws. And it’s also hard to wear white formally because it risks looking “bridey.” Feathers help do away with both these problems. A light layer of white feathers looks floaty and sweet and detracts from figure flaws. And unless feathered bridal gowns become popular, the feathers keep celebs on the red carpet from looking like a wedding cake topper.
Here are two versions of the white feather frock, one short, and one long.
First, the Xeniya Feather-Hem Beaded Silk Dress is a short, strappy, fitted dress that has beading on the bodice and skirt and white feathers at the hem. It has a square neckline and a zipper in back. The short skirt falls about 18.5 inches from the waist. The luxury begins with the fabric, which is silk. This is a gorgeous look that works great with strappy, high heeled sandals in white or silver.
If you need a formal floor-length dress, this long white feather dress from Sue Wong is perfect. It features wide tank straps, a deep v-neckline and empire waist. The skirt is tiered with white feathers for a softly elegant look. Rhinestone jewelry and simple white pumps or flats would work with this unforgettable dress.
