5 most notable dresses of 2010
In the spirit of honouring the departure of 2010, which has been a glorious one (save for McQueen’s suicide and Roitfeld’s alleged termination from French Vogue) for the fashion industry, we’ve planned a series of features celebrating the best of the best in fashion that were released during the last 365 and a quarter days.
First up are the most notable dresses of 2010, because a dress is the first thing a woman with any smidgen of sartorial inclination must own.
That gold dress by Balmain
Starring in a total of seven major magazine covers, including four international editions of Vogue, this gold number Balmain became a global hit in the fashion community the minute it went down the runway on Anja Rubik in the house’s Fall 2010 show in Paris.
It’s been seen being worked by major celebrities, from Cameron Diaz to Vogue Nippon’s Anna dello Russo, and questionable personalities such as Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s rumoured mistress. Want one? It’s hanging on one of the racks at Harvey Nichols at Mall of the Emirates and bearing a hefty price tag of about AED 127,000.
Gold dress becomes goldmine for Balmain.
