Best Dresses of 2010, Friends Edition

After months of anticipation (ha!), I’m excited to present the Best Dresses of 2010, Friends Edition!

Back in July, I asked friends and friends of friends to send in photos of their favorite dresses. I also did some trolling on Facebook and found some gorgeous frocks as well. After sifting through all the submissions, I’ve narrowed down the list to these 11. They are in no particular order… but they are all fabulous!

Thank you to everyone who submitted and for all of you who allowed me to use your photos and dresses.

The print of this dress is so wild and fun–and Kelly pulls it off wonderfully. You need a little sass in your style to wear this dress and Kelly does this effortlessly. Love the length and fit too.

I love how timeless this dress is–the cut, the sleeves, the pencil skirt. And Gillian wears it supremely — you can feel (and see!) the fun she’s having while wearing it. Love the splash of red too.

I love Meredith’s unique sense of style: what she does with clothes always amazes and impresses me. And this dress is no exception. I love the color, the crystal detail, and the one-shoulder top. Super fun shoes too!

The material, the fit and the colors of this dress create a look that screams effortless chic. And that’s just how I see Megan. She’s a mother of four that always looks put together in a classy and fun way. Love this!

I’m a total sucker for two-tone dresses and this one is fabulous. I love the strapless top, the length, the belt and the way it fits Holly superbly! You just can’t go wrong with Alice + Olivia dresses–they are always so fun!

Few people can pull off a dress this sassy and form-fitting, but Jen nails it. I’ve been loving Nicole Miller’s funky fabrics the past few seasons and Jen shows how to really rock it. I also love the collar of this dress: classy and feminine with a touch of flirt.

I was looking for the perfect little black dress to feature–and this was the hands-down winner. Aside from being a fun party dress, it really highlights Meredith’s showstopper legs. Not to mention those Pour Le Victoire heels. Hot, hot, hot!

Celebrity Check Plus: Jennifer Lopez at Apollo Awards in NYC

Last night Jennifer Lopez and husband Marc Antony received the Ruby Dee & Ossie Davis Arts and Humanitarian Award at the Apollo Theater Spring Benefit Concert & Awards in New York. And blah blah blah… what mattered was her dress! It was hot!

The gold, sequined number with a plunging neckline and curve-hugging fit was absolutely stunning. Her hair and accessories were perfect too. Loved the shoes and bag. (Update: Thanks to Libbey’s sleuthing, I can report the designer is Gianfranco Ferre.)

Check plus, Jennifer, check plus. (I actually really like her.)

Alert! Super Cute Dresses Ahead

I love dresses. I love short dresses, strapless dresses, solid dresses, print dresses, dresses with sequins, halter dresses…. well, you get the point.

Earlier today, I was browsing one of my favorite online shopping sites, Cusp (it’s the Neiman Marcus boutique) and came across several fabulous dresses. Here are some of my favorites:

Tibi Strapless Silk Dress

Um, how friggin cute is this? Yes, it’s basic Tracey-style with the strapless top and short length, but I lovelovelove this yellow color. I also think this has the right amount of flowy-ness: enough to hide a bit of bloating but not enough to look like a colored garbage bag. (Tibi, $345)

Alice + Olivia Bethany Peplum Dress

I love the colors of this dress. But living in Hawaii, I don’t really have anywhere to wear a dress like this. Too bad,

because the sequined bodice is just so pretty and eye-catching. And I love the Mad Men-inspired ruffle around the waist. Hot! (Alice + Oliva, $495)

Robert Rodriguez One-Shoulder Applique Dress

This dress is stunning–with the right figure, someone could really rock it. The asymmetrical waist and black lines, it’s just such an interesting print! If my hips were smaller, I’d definitely buy this little number. (Robert Rodriguez, $418)

Trina Turk Floral Kiki Dress

While I normally don’t LOVE large prints, this one works for me. I like the navy with the quick splashes of green. It’s interesting and classic while still being unique. And how cute are the little cap sleeves? (Trina Turk, $348)
