That Gucci Dress

Gucci Feathered Dress
Fall/Winter 2013

Every season there comes a dress that is photographed more than others, and this Fall it seems that the honour goes to Gucci (for now). The Italian label have launched a fashion frenzy with their line of feathered dresses from the Fall/Winter 2013 collection, which has been popping up in editorials everywhere. The dress in question is Look 47 off the runway, an elaborate sequined and feathered mesh dress in a spectrum of green, gold and blue hues.

On the Gucci F/W 2013 runway, Polish model Kasia Struss showed off the feather decked Heaven's Bird embroidered dress. It was styled with fish-net stockings, that is congruous with the netted effect of the sleeves.


Chloe Moretz mades a striking appearance in the pages of InStyle USA's August 2013 edition. The 16-year-old starlet looked stunning in this beautifully embellished Gucci dress that parades 5 types of feathers in peacock colours. Owing to her age, Chloe interestingly wears a sequined long-sleeved top under the see-through dress for a more modest look.


Our favourite ex-human/doppelganger-turned-vampire Nina Dobrev stunned in the feathery over-the-knee dress for a photo spread in Cosmopolitan US this September. Nina wore a brassiere underneath the sheer mesh bodice and had her hair coifed in a braided upstyle.


 Indian actress Lakhsmi Menon brings edgy styling and gold ear cuffs to the feathered Gucci frock for the September 2013 cover of Elle India.


Jennifer Lopez takes a seat on the cover of W Magazine's August 2013 issue wearing the blue and green mesh-sleeved dress. Her hair is styled in retro 40's inspired waves. She also wears emerald jewellery that adds to the ostentation.


 Dutch model Marloes Horst does the Gucci feathered dress grand justice, gracing the cover of L'Officiel Netherlands September 2013. Leather gloves and a halo braid style her look. I love the Technicolor effect of the dress in this photograph. The colours magically stand out.


This exquisitely detailed 'Heaven's Bird' dress is fabricated from black netted tulle, with a velvet waistband. It is ornamented by an array of green, turquoise and gold feathers as well as 850 grams of glittering sequins. This extravagant dress will set you back just about $16 000, which here in SAfrica will buy you a small car. A very small car, but nonetheless.

This is certainly not the last we have seen of this highly sought-after Gucci dress. I am interested to see if and which star will wear it on the red carpet. Any guesses?

The editorials that made the biggest impression on me was Chloe Moretz and Marloes Horst. 
I liked the metallic mermaid effect on Chloe's dress and the vibrancy of Marloes. 
Who do you think looks best in that Gucci dress?

Krysten @ Why Girls Are Weird said...

I like feathers in very small moderation....

Sadie said...

I'm not surprised it's being used in editorials everywhere, it's a very eye-catching dress. I think it looks great on Chloe Moretz, I love how it's been styled with the sequinned top underneath :) xx

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

This is one stunner of a dress! Talk about a statement piece! I agree with you that the mermaid effect of it on Chloe is very striking!

RYC: I've never tried to make tahini before but I would think you could make it yourself since it just consists of sesame seeds and oil.

It is undoubtedly a work of art. The detail is incredible and I dare say this is the glamorous dress I've ever seen haha! It looks lovely in the editorials but I don't think I'd personally wear it :)

My Urban Market said...

I think Marloe is the best.

I agree Chloe Moretz looks so flawless! It's definitely a great dress for editorials but I'm not sure how else it could be pulled off!

Lilli said...

Hello Sam!:) Let me say that is is really a hard dress to wear, for the line, the feathers and the pattern. Thats why I really like best how it goes on the models Kasia and Marloes, in my opinion it suits well just on a skinny and tight body! I'm wondering, in fact, how it goes on Jennifer Lopez (who at the first neither recognize her!), maybe the choice to take a pic of her seat isnt a coincidence. Great feature, is really original cause now you make me think which celebrities will wear it on red carpet! Thanks a bunch for your words, I really appreciate them since I am always make my best to improve and be clear with English!:) Have a nice evening and a great Thurs tmw! Kisses! xo

That is a WOW dress. I actually have never seen this Bird dress from Gucci until now. I can't believe it is all over the magazines. It's a well made dress. I will not wear it though. It remains to be seen who will wear it. Maybe Rihanna. :)

Pip said...

Sam, I so love this dress and it is so outrageous, but I seem to love it on the 4th woman (the Indian model) as it looks so nice on a darker complexion! I hope you have a good day dear and stop by soon! xx Pip

I can't believe that Chloe Moretz looks better than the runway model! And why the hell would Nina Dobrev wear a bra underneath?! It really is a cool dress, I'd like to see it on Rihanna though, that would be the perfect combo.:)

Daniella said...

This dress is pretty AMAZING! Love the colours and the use of textures the dress has. All these ladies look beautiful wearing this very eye catching dress and Indeed Chloe Moretz looks super stunning! :)

Take care,
Daniella xox

Alexandra Zakharova said...

To my mind Jenifer Lopez looks better than anyone in this dress) Though, to tell the truth, I don't like this gown at all, it looks so weird and crudely constructed.
Thank You for sharing such a nice post anyway, good job, Sam!
Wish you a blessed day ahead!
