Weather the feather
Ruffles saw multiple appearances at the Cannes. Know if they work for you.Updated: May 26, 2010 01:41 IST
The strapless L'Wren Scott gown worn by Naomi Campbell is decorated with silver embroidery and is an explosion of feathers that are upside down and fall beautifully. But one has to have the figure to carry off the fitted dress. To add delicacy to the gown, feathers can be used as embellishments (instead of lace or embroidery) and not heavily all over as layers.
Wearing a blush pink ruffled Roberto Cavalli gown in silk organza with slight silver detailing on the ruffles, Jennifer Lopez teams it up with a Judith Leiber clutch and Chopard jewels. Ruffles on the bottom can be carried off by anyone as they give you elegance, feminity, grace and height.
The neckline of Mischa Barton’s white chiffone white gown by Marchesa was decorated with a circle of white feathers, while the waist was accentuated with a black ribbon belt. She carried with it a diamond crystal Marchesa clutch. Ruffles on the upper part are used to highlight the cleavage and features such as jawline, shoulders and neckbone. Stick to the bottom feathers if you are well-endowed on the upper half.
