Displaying Amsale's affinity for chic, timeless designs, this exceptional strapless taffeta ball gowns features a shirred bodice and high-low bubble skirt. An antique crystal broach accents the waistline. "My approach for the Fall 2009 Amsale collection was to combine structure with softness, taking inspiration from architectural details to create the perfect relationship between hard and soft," says designer Amsale Aberra.
Amsale certainly knows a thing or two about understated elegance—Halle Berry and Katherine Heigl have worn her designs, and her gowns have been featured on Grey's Anatomy and 27 Dresses. —Kathryn Papanek
