Belle is the new Leger.....

Ever since Victoria Beckham was shown wearing this Herve Leger dress in 2007, it (being the dress) became renowned throughout the World. All of a sudden, every female celebrity loved putting on these dresses to show off their curves. And yes, whilst they are very figure hugging and sexy, after three years of constantly seeing them on the red carpet, I am fairly sick of the sight of them. And last night at various events was no exception. I spotted at least three celebrities wearing the dress, AnnaLynne McCord being one.



I am just tired of seeing how they are styled by celebrities or excuse me, by their stylists. Variety is the spice of life and so on, so I really wish they would change it up a bit.

What are your thoughts on the Herve Leger dress and how celebrities wear it?

I saw Camilla Belle looking beautiful and sexy in a demure way in her floaty, not too tight, but just right dress at the premiere of 'The Dry Land' last night and I rejoiced (well, rejoiced is a bit over the top) that she wasn't wearing 'that' dress. The detailing on this dress is exquisite, I love it!



Does Camilla Belle ever get it wrong?

Charly said...

Urgh totally agree on the Herve, they had their time and once every high street shop possible did a version I think its high time for celebs to stop wearing them! Camille looks stunning I am in lovee with that dress,

I love Camilla Belle's style, she's always so fresh and original! No more bandage dresses!!!

Marie Z. said...

No, Camilla Belle NEVER gets it wrong ; ) She always looks stunning! I love both dresses.

Christie said...

Love her! I totally agree with you about the dresses - they shouldn't be wearing them anymore unless they can come up with a new style or way of wearing it. Even a blazer over top would be better!

Camille looks gorgeous!

Pop Champagne said...

ohh so that's where that dress came from! That's cool, I see imitations of that dress everywhere :D and yeah Victoria Beckham is soo pretty

Brianna said...

I agree about those dresses. I think they are awesome but overworn for sure.

nookie said...

I'm sick of it too, it's everywhere...

Adorngirl said...

If you have the body for the bodycon, power to you, but the style is getting a little old, I liked Christopher Kanes earliest take, it was fun, and completely ridiculous, and genius

dotie said...

I get that the dress shows your curves but its just ridiculous how over exposed it is..
do they not like have any other dress :)

I looove Camilla

Winnie said...

Well not many people can get away with the Leger dresses so in some ways, good on them! Though yes, it's definitely not the most exciting of dresses anymore.

StylishSinead said...

I have4 to agree the herve is more than a little overdone looking for something new.

meraldia said...

We are indeed overdosed with these dresses but I still like them because they are very feminine and sexy!

Sara Lynn said...

Victoria does look fab and I bet the other girls look great too, it is annoying to see the same stupid thing over and over though. Camille's dress is perfect :)

à la Modest said...

Yeah I agree. Those two gals are obviously really sexy, but Camille's dress looks like she could actually breath in it. Victoria B (although I adored her since I was a little girl) and the other girls who wear this dress look like they are ready to go swimming because that dress has got to be water-tight!

Mimi said...

Finally someone else who agrees!!!

Herve Leger is fabulous, but I am sick of these 'fashionistas' wearing them. I feel like it's been done.
Another person who should retire them are the Kardashian girls.

Camilla looks fantastic, as always!

P. S. Love the new header!

Every Little Counts said...

totally agree. and i love camilla's look- so pretty and romantic, but sexy too- much better than being squeezed into a tight little bandage dress!

VersaStyle said...

this dress has become too classic so yes I agree... not as interesting. I've tried one on once and couldn't breath.. don't know how Victoria does it.. but kudos to her

Couture Carrie said...

So gorgeous!

Fashion Cappuccino said...

I always love bodycon dresses and I think they look sexy on everyone!! I adore Camilla's dress! Very pretty and unique! xoxoxoxoo

Tali. said...

oh the second photo is just beautiful... great blog, how long have you been blogging for? xxx

Aattlee said...

I do love that (first dress). It's exquisitely made and makes such a hug impact...at least, it did the first. maybe even second or third time. After that, I agree it gets rather tiresome. Camilla definitely has it right, as they say, it's what you DON'T show that makes an outfit sexy. :)

Nemerae said...

I love both of them, the Hervé Leger ones and also floating and pastel ones.. Camilla Belle looks amazing and so sweet!!

Ashley said...

I don't pay attention to celeb fashion all that much, so I hadn't noticed it...but it looks like Victoria could go up a size. Even body con gets boring after a while. I have a little crush on Camilla Belle, love her outfit because it barely looks like she's trying.

Micaela said...

I love Camila Belle's dress. It's so nice

I still think that the leger is a beautiful dress but I am completely sick of looking at it as well. I feel like every celebrity has worn it at least once. It is nice to see something different like Camilla's dress

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

I love Camilla's look- the shoes are so cute!!

sally said...

thanks always for your absolutely lovely comments <333

ari said...

a agree, I somewhat got sick of those dresses! uggh! and majority of the times those dresses were not styled right on the celebs, and to be quite honest they ended up looking very tacky! :(

love camilla, she is very beautiful, and that dress on her is just divine.

Lisa Griffin said...

i totally agree!!! i love the dress, but that, long hair, and pumps is sooooo overdone!

i am si ck of the bandage dress too

Nubiasnonsense said...

Camilla Belle is gorgeous! i dont think she does ever get it wrong lol

Adrianna Traxler said...

That dress just makes everyone look good. It's a very flattering material that I would love to own one. But it does for sure get a little old when you see tons of celebrities wear them. Camilla for sure has chic style

Eloo C. said...

I really like how Victoria is wearing that drees, the dress is chic by itself but if you want to give it an other look you can always add accesories ;)

Ahahaa personally I don't like Victoria Beckham. But the dress is very nice.

However Camilla Belle looks amazing. The colour and the material of the dress is just...so sweet and feminine looking.

I love, love VB!!! =) But yes, seeing some variety is nice and welcomed.

Lee Oliveira said...

I try to like VB but I just can't. I find her look always so harsh. If she just smiled for once I'm sure she would look fantastic. And for those dresses. They are a bit "yesterday" aren't they.
As for Camilla Belle. She looks stunning as always.
