Proof That the Perfect Party Dress Does Exists

The perfect party dress means different things to different people, but generally speaking, it should serve one key function: making the wearer feel like a million bucks. To us, that's usually achieved with a piece chock-full of unique details, a dazzling silhouette, and a color palette that's far from boring. It appears our prayers have been answered: Jourdan Dunn recently stepped out in a Peter Pilotto frock that checked all the necessary boxes.

Featuring eye-catching embellishment, rich jewel-tone hues, and artful fringe detailing, the dress from the designer's F/W 18 collection was made for the spotlight. Overwhelming accessories needn't interfere here—a pair of simple strappy heels (as seen here on the model) is really all you need for such a statement piece. While the dress is not yet available, we're sure it'll cost a pretty penny once it hits stores—shop a similar, more budget-friendly style below.
