Trend spotting: Rocking the ruffles

Who looked better?

Entertainment Desk February 09, 2017


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.

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.
