Leighton Meester, who recently married husband Adam Brody, turned more than a few heads on the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of The Judge earlier this week. The former Gossip Girl star slipped on a black-and-white dress from Balmain's Resort 2015 collection. The look was the perfect mix of sultry and elegant — it flaunted her figure and toned legs without overdoing it.
Whether you're looking for the perfect frock for your bachelorette party or want to go bold for your rehearsal dinner, this is a dress that will make a lasting impression. The long sleeves, two-tone palette, mini length, and spliced skirt are totally sublime. Her metallic clutch from Salvatore Ferragamo and Jimmy Choo pumps only took the entire look to the next level.

Two-tone dresses are always classic, thus this long-sleeve number in the same timeless color palette is equally as amazing as Meester's Balmain piece. A bonus? It can be given even more flair with fun hair, makeup, and accessories and is pared-down enough to be worn for years to come.

Valentino uplifted the figure-skimming mini dress with a contrast collar and sleeve cuffs, as well as feminine ruffle detailing: beautiful accents that further enhanced the dress's charm.

A woman can never go wrong with an Emilio Pucci dress. The iconic Italian fashion house is known the world over for its designs that both accentuate and elevate the female form. This black and white piece has a longer hemline than Meester's Balmain frock, but its sexy V-neckline still has enough va-va-voom to make an impact.
