The RVN 'It' Dress

One of this season's most popular dress comes in a fitted mini silhouette, with a trendy jacquard geo-textured print from New York based brand RVN. The optical illusion dress has been seen on over 15 different starlets (and counting), in a range of duo-tone shades.

Besides just celebrities, this prismatic print dress has been a massive hit with the average girl as well, being sold out on several websites and also a favored choice at Rent The Runway. Click on the links to see how stylish everyday fashionista's wore their RVN 'It' dress. For $75, you too can rent a part of this geometric fashion frenzy.

RVN's Geo Signature bodycon dress retails for $395,
It is sold in four sizes and three colour combinations.
It comes in both a round high-neckline with cap sleeves and with a strappy crew neck.

Who Wore RVN Better?

The Black & White Edition

The black & white version of the RVN geometric print jacquard dress has been the most popular with celebrities. Each of them selected to style their mini with slight variation. Cher Lloyd went for a Christian Louboutin Mary-Jane flower pump and pop of red with an Onch poison apple necklace. Both Kristin Chenoweth and Tiffani Thiessen opted for open-toe booties, while Smash star Megan Hilty wore peep toe sandals. Rumer Willis picked a pair of cap-toed flats to wear with her RVN dress and Jamie Chung wore pointy-toe pumps.

This geo-patterned dress has also been popular on Celebrity's Instagram accounts. 
Disney's Zendaya Coleman and Kylie Jenner wore the black and white edition of the fitted mini dress with simple styling, while singer/actress Tamar Braxton paired her scoop-neck, inverted colour version of the dress with a slick black blazer. 

The Verdict: I prefer the dress styled by Cher Lloyd, I liked her choice of flower-trimmed shoes and the pop of red with the cute bitten apple necklace.

The Blue & White Edition
Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh teamed her RVN blue & white dress with white sandals. 
Jessica Szhor showed off her toned figure in the Aztec inspired look, with black sandals.
Heather Graham took to the streets of Brazil in her RVN mini with bright blue strappy heels.

The Verdict: With a choice of white, black and blue heels, I liked Kimberley's white pair but I prefer the fit of the dress on Jessica. Could they swop shoes perhaps?

The Orange & Black Edition
Songstress Amy Heidemann wears the orange and black version of the geo-print dress with whimsical feather trimmed heels by Jimmy Choo, black bangles and a clutch bag.
Ashley Tisdale styled the famous RVN frock with black peep-toe sandals & a Prada clutch.
Reality personality Angela Simmons wears the scoop-neck version of this RVN dress with caged Manolo Blahnik sandals.

The Verdict: I like the chic styling of Ashley Tisdale's outfit.

Do you think that this geometric 'It' dress is worth all the hype?
Which colour version and styling do you prefer?

Very nice dress! Not for everybody though, but they look nice on thin girls.

Megan said...

I'm not sure about this dress Sam, it kind of hurts my eyes.

Admirably Pretty said...

The blue and white one is the best! Such a pretty dress, but such a pity it can't be put into a picture really well because of the moiré effect!

Stella said...

Hi Sam! What an interesting choice today, I honestly am not a big fan of the dress cause I think is pretty hard to wear and does not suits everyone for the geometrical print, so in my opinion it isnt worth all the hypes is got! You could find many ladies wearing it, is interesting to confront them: the black and white edition is my fav version though, Jamie Chung is who wore it better, but have to agree with you, among all Ashley Tisdayl rocks it!:) Kisses dear, hope your day is going fine! xo

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

What fun designs and i'm with you - Ashley looks fab! Minimal accessories and light shoes (in design, not color
)are key!

Sorry to hear it Sam, brrr I can get you, still remember the cold winter we had this year! In this part of the world finally the summer kicked off so today is pretty hot! Send you a bit of sunshine!:) Kisses!! xo

Denise said...

I liked the style of Cher Lloyd, but honestly, such a beautiful dress - and I wish I could wear it - was better worn by the models :)

Kim Alston said...

I like the look on Tisdale and Chung.

Style-Delights said...

Thanks for your kind words on my last post!
This dress seems to be truly popular and I like the blue and white version best!

Have a great day,

It is a nice dress, but I would never wear it, if such a huge pile of ladies are wearing it... Fashion is all about making a statement, sending a message with what you wear, and I cannot see any interesting message in a copy-paste stlye dress... And cannot understand that all of these women, who have a lot of money, choose the same dress...dear Lord... Ilina

It's Hope, LHOPE. ^-~ said...

I love the orange/black one on Amy. :}

Elly @ Caribbean Living said...

Oooh I love this game Sam - ok my votes go to...Jamie (less interesting I guess, but I love the understated heels), Heather (awesome shoes, love!) and Ashley (heels/clutch combo, love). It's a seriously divine dress, it's not often that I fall for every colourway but this one's got me for sure!

Hey Sam! Hope all is well in the Durbs! I'd love to give this style a go the one that little Jenner is wearing.

Paola Lauretano said...

I love the orang & black version Sam! This dress is amazing, with an original
print, but i think it isen't easy to wear...
Have a fab day doll!!!

Rahul Bhatia said...

Very colorful and soothing designs:)

Nina said...

Is it worth the hype? I didn't think so at first but then I saw all these different girls with different body types rocking the dress and I actually get it now. All of them look good in that very same dress :)



ooo thats such a cool dress! too expensive for my liking though hahaha ;)

Wow, this dress is really hot and I think I like the black and orange version best but they are all very chic and look good on so many different body types.


Dascha Boonstra said...

So amazing!


Peet said...

Ha, everybody really wore this dress!!:) I love this dress, the print is gorgeous, and I like all of the outfits too, except for Cher Lloyd's. Those Louboutins really threw me off - why would you wear something with a flower with this print?!

Nee said...

oh wow seems like everybody's wearing it hihi. i never noticed this dress before but i really like the black & white version. i think jamie chung wore it best with those pointy black heels:)

thanks for always stopping by:)
lots of love xx

Katie Frank said...

This dress is fab :O

The Style Maze said...

This dress is so amazing! I love how Cheryl Lloyd styled it ;) I have to look for a similar one for myself, too! I hope I will find it ;)


Natalia A said...

To be honest, I can't understand the hype around this one and also why all the girls above want to wear it so badly - I'd want to shot myself if I saw just one woman wearing the same dress and here there are clearly crowds of them. :)

S said...

I'm still uncertain about that dress, I can't understand if I like it or not!^^
Anyway I prefer it in blue & white version, even if jamie Chung's style is my fav!

ELISA said...

I love it...but too many of it around!

Cher Lloyd is my favourite! Her shoes are perfect and go with it so well. The dress suits her figure too.

Carmen said...

I really like the dress in white and blue but I think that all in all Jamie Chung, Heather Graham and Ashley Tisdale styled their dresses best, keeping it elegant and simple :)

They look all great, but Heather Graham wins the price for me :) I always enjoy these posts SO MUCH (as your 'outfits of the week' ones) so thanks so much for always making them :) And I was just wondering, how do you always find pictures of celebrities wearing the same clothes? I'm curious!! Keep up the good blogging because I LOVE YOUR BLOG!!! :p

Oh wow! So cute, i love it in blue!

Hi!!!! To tell the truth dress is absolutley difficult I love it only on first set, left model, in blue colour
thanks for comments, dear!

Francesca. said...

I keep seeing this dress pop up everywhere, it's such a great piece for S/S - I just wish I had the nearly $400 to snap one up! Kimberly Walsh is definitely my favourite in the dress, it looks great on a curvy figure (maybe I'm just biased because I have a very similar body shape to her...ha!) xx

Aleksandra said...

Beautiful dresses !
Love it in Orange & black :)

Wil Harris said...

Absolutely love this dress! It's so stylish, trendy, and sexy. Love how Jamie Chung wore it. She kept it really simple with black pumps.

I love the red version on Angela Simmons and the white and blue on Kimbery Walsh is stunning and fresh for summer!

I will check out how much these dresses costs,but for some reasons I suspect they are quite pricey lol!
