Spring Fashion Trends 2008: Goddess Gowns


We titled this trend "goddess gowns" for the sake of alliteration when, in fact, all sorts of one-shouldered draped dresses for day and night made their mark on the SS08 runways. The masterful dressmaker Monique Lhuillier delivered a celestial evening gown fit for a fete on Mount Olympus; Yigal Azrouël brought the look back down to earth with a breezy white asymmetrical frock; and Lanvin presented a modern-day toga for today's fashionista. Whether you've got a Spring gala to attend or are looking for something a little out-of-the ordinary for your next cocktail party, consider a one-shouldered dress - and invoke your inner goddess.

Love the goddess dress! I only wish I could have Rami (Proj Runway) come make me on...lol.

I found a fabulous BCBG one in T.J. Maxx. But, the fit was not right for me. So, the search continues.

Please promise to show some budget ones if you come across any.

I love Rami, that boy can drape. His evening gowns are to die for. And I will definitely keep an eye out for chic budget versions of this trend...stay tuned. :-)
