When we think gingham dress, red lips, and red shoes, a glorious retro montage comes to mind evoking old Hollywood glamour and golden pinup girls.  While our photo shoot may hint at vintage with all those elements and a quaint FDNY fire call box, this gorgeous Dolce and Gabbana number is anything but old-fashioned!  Let’s call this black and white gingham dress RED HOT MODERN!

The gingham dress in Vichy, a luxurious black and white silk check Dolce and Gabbana used repeatedly in their S/S 2015 Collection fits like a dream thanks to the carefully constructed ruching through the waistline. The drape detailing at the shoulders allows for adjustable coverage of the upper arms. In the back this draping forms a beautiful V above the zippered closure.

And speaking of old Hollywood glamour, the fabulous clutch Francesca is carrying is from Hayward.  We adore this emerging luxury line created by Marin Hopper, daughter of  Hollywood legend Dennis Hopper and actress/author Brooke Hayward and granddaughter of the late Hollywood producer Leland Hayward.  “Born in Hollywood and made in New York”, Hopper’s vision for Hayward was to build the first American luxury brand to draw on generations of Hollywood history and glamour.  This particular bag, the chic Double Dowel Clutch is shown in exotic Smoke Python and incorporates an interior pocket and front slit pocket in the foldover design.  We complete this smoking hot ensemble with red patent Christian Louboutin peep toe platforms!
