I'll admit -- that vintage Hermes that Angelina Jolie wore to cover up her baby bump at the SAG awards was not my favorite look for her. The ombre was pretty, but too much volume in all the wrong places (I suppose that was the point.) So it was fun to stumble across an echo of that dress in Larsen Gray's artsy column gown in bamboo and organic cotton.
I much prefer the Larsen Gray's sleek silhouette, with just a single pleat to convey the message of volume. Make sure you check out the detail shots. What looks like ombre from far off is actually a gorgeous scribble pattern that seems randomly drawn across the silk. Almost like those doodles in your page margin during a boring high school english class, only utterly prettier. If you've got somewhere to be dazzling over the holidays, I think you've found your gown.
Larsen Gray Scribble Dress $370.
GOOD B/C: Organic, Sustainable.
