Taylor Swift knocked it out of the park in an ultra sleek yet girly Monique Lhuillier color-blocked design at last night's *The Giver *premiere. This asymmetrical fit-and-flare gown works two-fold: For the bride who wants to add a pop of color (it is, after all, one of the biggest wedding trends) she should look for a color-blocked dress with a punchy hue on the bodice and a more traditional bridal shade on the bottom. On the other hand, a look like this is ideal for a rehearsal dinner — just special and fashionable enough to start your wedding weekend off with a bang.
Love Swift's Monique Lhuillier design as much as we do? Here's how to get it for yourself.

Kate Spade: It's not colorblocked, but this cream Kate Spade confection speaks to Swift's design in a few ways. It's fashioned from a similarly heavy, and shiny, silk fabric. The skirt offers major volume — a strict contract to the dress's fit bodice — and also boasts a subtle high-low hem and pleating along the waist.

J.Crew: While the V-neck is very different from Swift's high neckline, this bridal gown offers a sleek yet feminine fit-and-flare design.

Lela Rose: Perfect for your rehearsal dinner, this punchy plum not only offers a similar silhouette, the neckline is as severely high and straight-cut as Swift's sleeveless gown.

Alfred Sung: We envision this shiny, blush-toned look-a-like as the perfect rehearsal dinner or after party dress. The high-low hem is on point, the fabric catches the light just like Swift's, and the color is very bridal.
