We love a sheer moment on the red carpet moment but seldom does the opportunity arise for us mere mortals to don the trend IRL. Yet we were struck by Olivia Palermo’s whimsical Valentino gown at the La Traviata premiere in Rome that felt fairly-like yet oddly attainable to recreate for an elegant summer affair. Looking dreamy and effortless at once, our eternal style muse literally shined in a star-print gown, grounded by edgier accessories: lace-up heels, a studded clutch and gleaming jewels. And while Olivia’s fanciful frock is high atop our sartorial wish list, a similarly affordable style falls more within our price range, all the while embodying Oliva’s alluring look for a midsummer fête. Below, the parallel universe to Olivia’s stunning gown, plus affordable extras to team alongside.
