Modern tailoring met the seventies in Alberta Ferretti's new Resort collection, where a tie-dyed safari-inspired shirtdress, a violet topcoat embellished with Venetian Murrine glass stones, and a kaleidoscope-print silk maxi dress with a neon crocheted bodice were the key looks. During last month's Cannes Film Festival, Ferretti outfitted a slew of starlets, including Lana Del Rey, Eva Longoria, and Jada Pinkett Smith, and there were more red-carpet-ready numbers here, a delicate tri-toned lace gown in particular. The Italian designer adheres to a tried-and-true formula with her romantic clothes, which can sometimes seem repetitive from one season to the next. But then again, who can argue with the straightforward appeal of a billowing silk goddess dress like the one modeled by Vlada Roslyakova?
