FOUND: Hayden Panettiere's Beaded Little Black Dress

Thursday, September 20, 2007 • Permalink • 

Did you catch a glimpse of Hayden Panettiere's Emmy Awards dress? The fun and frothy Marc Bouwer creation was pink and princess-y with an empire waist that vibed positively regal. I'll admit, I'm pretty much the only person who actually liked it. So be it. I think she looked adorable. So very "Princess and the Pea"-- which happens to be one of my favorite fairy tales. Not a fan of the Hayden-as-princess look? Ok, I'll give in. A couple weeks before the Emmy awards Hayden was snapped wearing a much less controversial fashion choice: a trendy black beaded minidress.

Want to steal Hayden Panettiere's beaded little black dress style? She's wearing Alice + Olivia's Sequin Dress (right). Not only is this dress right in line with fall's sequined minidress trend, which I wrote about earlier in the week in the context of a hot white dress spotted on Michelle Trachtenberg, it is also a timeless little black dress with a twist. Can you ask for anything more from a party dress?

What's the twist you ask? Well, it's kind of hard to see in these pictures, but the bottom of the dress is cut in a bubble shape and the beading actually flows away from the dress from the waist down. The beading isn't attached to the fabric of the dress on the lower half, which provides a sense of movement and lightness that you don't usually see on a fully beaded dress. Very unique. This new take on the LBD would make a great go-to dress for the holiday party season.
