Oscars weekend is upon us, and it would be great to be in L.A. attending a glamorous after-party, but the reality is I’ll be taking care of my 4-month-old baby. But a girl can dream, can’t she? And if what they say is true, if you get the dress, the occasion will come. I’ve already picked out the dress—or, to be exact, the jumpsuit—for my imaginary after-party: Roksanda Ilincic’s electric orange and black jumpsuit. It feels so fresh and different from any cocktail dress I’ve ever owned. And while I might be in my pj’s this Sunday night, I’m sure I won’t run out of occasions to wear my midriff-baring but demure Roksanda number.

Michael Cera’s new romantic comedy, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, had its European premiere in London last night, and though most of the film’s leading ladies (from Anna Kendrick to newcomers Ellen Wong and Mary Elizabeth Winstead) made an appearance, all eyes were on Florence Welch, the fiery front woman of the rising pop act Florence and the Machine. Welch has a solid history of supporting independent designers (she often wears Hannah Marshall, and has done turns in Roksanda Illincic, too), and for the occasion she picked a Fall ’10 tattoo dress by the Australian label Willow, paired with chunky wedge booties. The combination—a bold, printed mini paired with ankle boots—is one we’ve been seeing more and more of lately, and Welch is the perfect example of why: She looks red-carpet ready but not fussy or prissy. What do you think of the look—is this one that should be turning Scott Pilgrim’s head?
