Imagine for a second that you’re in a rose garden, one that’s blossoming in the countryside of France. The air is warm, but not too warm, and the sun smiles coyly at you. The wind stirs gently, lifting the hem of your dress playfully, revealing your crimson satin sandals as you step over thorns, deeper into the tangle of wild roses that surround you. In this environment, you blend in, your tea-length floral dress winking to the blooms swaying with the breeze.This is what we imagine it feels like to don the botanical-inspired Dolce & Gabbana dress that Emily Blunt wore to the D23 Expo.
In case you were convinced that florals were *only* for spring, then think again. Florals have no season. Instead, they remind us of the natural world’s beauty, and can do so whenever and wherever you need.
We also have to admire the way that Emily styled this dress.
By pairing the piece with a shockingly bright lip and matching satin single-strap Gianvito Rossi heels, she elevates the pattern to look red carpet-ready.
We can imagine pairing this look with a choker and lace-up boots for some gothic vixen vibes. Although it may not be groundbreaking, the look still feels fresh to us, especially considering that’s it’s no longer spring.
Whether you’re wearing this look with a bold lip à la Emily Blunt, or a nude lip for a more subdued look, there’s no way you can go unnoticed in this striking pattern. We have a feeling you wouldn’t want to anyway.
