Claire Pettibone's collection oozes femininity with graceful fabrics and delicate details. It comes as no surprise that the inspiration behind the designers 2011 collection was English roses and tea-for-two images that instantly invoke romantic, classic style.
The entire collection is made up of soft-flowing gowns with delicate details, designed with cotton, tulle, and silk, with accents of English lace and flowers.
The gown above has mastered the perfect balance between alluringly sexy and ladylike glamour, with tasteful lingerie detailing. The deep-V neckline is kept in check by the demure lace bodice and hemline, and the whimsical silk ribbon ties on either side of the empire waistline keep a classic silhouette unexpected and fresh.
