Yea, Nay, Or Eh? Lopez’s Lanvin Sparkler

-------

What’s not to like about the parade of drapey frocks Alber Elbaz sent down his Spring ’10 runway? Hardly anything, judging by the lengthy list of starlets who have turned up in Lanvin designs recently. While the more ruffle-heavy numbers threatened to overwhelm some size-zero frames, we think Jennifer Lopez really shines (literally) in this sleek, asymmetrical dress. The nude underlay looks lovely with her complexion, and the allover sequin design is nothing this one-time Jenny-from-the-block can’t handle. What do you think? Does J. Lo work this look, or is the pattern out-blinging her eight-carat engagement ring?

    this dress is absolutely gorgeous, like nearly everything mr alber elbaz (and design colleagues) do – please don’t put the designer name in the headline, so we can gaze in mystery for a while ! i think it looks splendid and perfect on the great ms. jlo – i don’t know her music, but i think she is charming, and, after all, if she has performed for the queen, why shouldn’t she look like the crown jewels – i don’t see this dress in the recent collections (nor the previous lanvin offering in this column) – the characteristic, complex and deconstructed cut faintly resembles this lovely diaphanous outfit presented by siri tollerod (all of these examples are more http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/F2010RTW-LANVIN?event=show2062&designer=design_house54&trend=&iphoto=36, this complex one by magdalena fracowiak, http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2010RTW-LANVIN?event=show1982&designer=design_house54&trend=&iphoto=39, vlada (consummate lanvin model, like kim noorda, elsa sylvan and others …) ….. http://www.style.com/fashionshows/complete/slideshow/S2010RTW-LANVIN?event=show1982&designer=design_house54&trend=&iphoto=12 ……. and two gorgeous green ones, by ethereal south russian fawn diana farkhulina

    oops – i meant to say that the examples are more deconstructed or asymmetric around the waist, rather than the shoulders as in the JLo dress
