Whoever first said ‘Less is more’ clearly hadn’t seen Viktor & Rolf’s Internet-breaking couture collection. Chock full of pastel-toned tulle gowns that make Rihanna’s infamous pink Grammys dress look low-key, the meme-worthy dresses marked a shift in tone for 2019’s take on fashion. Namely, a more lighthearted one.
Viktor & Rolf’s ‘Less Is More’ Tulle Confection
Celeb we want to see working it: We’re pretty sure the only person that could pull off (or move in) a dress this big is the queen of multiple seat-occupying gowns, Rihanna. Frankly, this ginormous Viktor & Rolf confection makes her Grammys dress look miniature
Celia Kritharioti’s Anti-Gravity Balloon Veil
Celeb we want to see working it:Sweeping pastel pink swathes of fabric? Check. An anti-gravity floating veil held up by balloons? Check. The most Lady Gaga-appropriate ensemble ever? Triple check.
Givenchy’s Shredded Rainbow
Celeb we want to see working it:Rainbow and tassels and collars oh my! Givenchy’s car-wash-but-make-it-fashun look goes to the one and only Solange.
Alexandre Vauthier’s Flouncy Tux
Celeb we want to see working it: Star of Eighth Grade and actress Elsie Fisher, who’s swiftly becoming our red carpet inspo for super cool suits. She might be small but we can see this larger than life androgynous take on the classic le smoking all over Elsie.
Armani Privé’s Tasselled Clown
Celeb we want to see working it:Serving up retro clown realness, we can see Diane Kruger rocking that hat, ruff and tasselled over-the-elbow gloves without batting an eyelid.
Schiaparelli’s Feathered Orb
Celeb we want to see working it:Never one to falter in the face of a Met Gala theme (her Joan Of Arc-inspired look from last year was epic), Zendayais the only woman we can think of to work this armless feather orb. Let’s just hope she’s not bothered about taking selfies…
Schiaparelli’s Star-Print Gown
Celeb we want to see working it: With her recent return to all things pastel, pretty and pop-tastic, we’re pegging Taylor Swift as the wearer of this delightfully child-like star-print gown. Ideal accessories would be pastel pink hair and a live kitten.
