Ruffles are back as one of this season's biggest trends. As seen on Hollywood’s leading style icons, the pretty detail boasts a level of sophistication that stops it from crossing into too-twee or too-girly territory. Compiled from InStyle here’s how Emma Watson, Selena Gomez and Cate Blanchett bring the Victorian feel back in ruffled dresses.
Trend spotting: cut-outs are back in vogue!
1. Selena Gomez
The Same Old Love hit maker gave ruffles a sexy spin with this plunging hot orange Giambattista Valli number with the teeniest flourish for a subtle hint at a softer side. The starlet tied her hair in a neat bun, keeping the focus on her gown. Smokey eyes and a light pink pout added to the finishing touches.
2. Cate Blanchett
The Carol actor worked it in a sexy corset-inspired Louis Vuitton knit number that not only clung to her curves, but outlined them, all of which was nicely balanced out with a sweet flouncy hem. We like how the dress featured a pop of yellow against a monochrome colour palette. Blanchett let her hair loose and accessorised her look with a pair of dangling earrings and grey strappy heels.
Michelle Dockery, Yara Shahidi step out in stylish stripes
3. Emma Watson
Watson expertly united romance with menswear when she wore a pretty floral-embroidered ruffled dress that opened to reveal a pair of tailored pants underneath. The white ensemble featured crimson flowers that made her look every bit a princess. She matched her trousers with pointed Louboutin heels, making her look picture perfect.
