It’s a battle of the brunettes in this who wore it better between singer Jordin Sparks and reality show Kim Kardashian in a beyond gorgeous Alexander McQueen sheath dress. The newlywed, Kim Kardashian, paired her version with super pumped up nude heels – perhaps she’s trying to be closer to husband Kris Humphrie’s height? Kim also adorned her ensemble with a set of classy bangles. The youngest American Idol winner, Jordin Sparks, paired her Alexander McQueen with peep-toe nude heels and a single bangle bracelet. We love that both women chose to compliment their Alexander McQueen stunner with simple accessories to let the dress steal the show.
A classic white sheath dress can easily go unnoticed, but this Alexander McQueen design is definitely an eye-catcher. With intricate texture detailing, this dress brings elegance and sophistication to the monotone design. Seemingly inspired by blackwork embroidery, commonly known at Spanish work, this embroidered pattern includes geometrics and floral patterns connected by curvilinear stems. Blackwork embroidery often imitates etchings.
This arabesque-inspired trend is also present in designer swimwear, in styles like the Pearl Casablanca Monokini by Sabz Swimwear. This Spanish flavored monokini features soft built-in cups and a halter style at the top. Beautiful detailing in shades of blue and yellow feature embroidery and beading and give that extra something to this white swimsuit . A keyhole cut-out at the center of the bodice includes a lace-up feature and tie bow. The sleek curvature of this suit’s center keyhole and side cut-outs helps elongate your torso.
