The spectacular sexiness of Hervé, in a classier. more unique cut than others in this price range.
I always love Hervé's thick material. As a very skinny girl, I appreciate that it keeps my hipbones from protruding too much, which can easily cheapen a bodycon look. For any body type, the material allows you (encourages you, really!) to go braless, which I'm a huge fan of doing. This particular dress uses shades of a gorgeous, glowing grapefruit color, which photograph beautifully and flatter any skin tone. I suggest matching your lip color as closely as possible with the deepest shade. I happened to have a patterned shoe that worked well with the dress, but a solid shoe in a neutral color (nude, cream, black if you have dark hair) is usually going to be your best bet for completing the look.
One con: There was only one imperfection with the fit on me. You can see in the picture that there is a wrinkle, indicating looseness, around my bust and under my arm. The XS that I wore might simply have been worn by someone with a larger bust than me. Be aware of this if you are small chested.
