The most popular dress for 2010 was definately the Miu Miu applique. Just look at all the covers it landed. I can understand why, its so intricate and feminine and the detailing is exquisite.
Lilac is generally a difficult colour to wear well and not really all that seasonal- this is why I like the purple version of the dress so much, because it blows my aesthetic prejudices out of the water.
The Eva Mendes W cover rocks by the way.
