While Barbiecore was taking over the internet, a more low-key trend had been bubbling and quietly making its way to the wardrobes of celebrities. Combining the best of bridal style with summer fashion, the white dress has quickly emerged as a go-to for breezy yet polished looks this season.
Just last week, Tunisian actor Dorra Zarrouk walked the red carpet at an awards ceremony in Italy wearing a white mini dress. Designed by Lebanese brand Laith Maalouf, which is known for its dreamy wedding gowns, the short number came with a strapless neckline, a double-breasted bodice, and an oversized bow on the side. The star completed the look with a pair of matching Valentino Rockstud stilettos and handbag, and statement black sunglasses.
If that wasn’t enough inspiration, two more renowned names embraced the fail-safe trend within a week, and made a strong case for the slip dress at the same time. Hailey Bieber was spotted heading out for dinner in LA wearing an ivory slip dress that featured a delicate lace bodice with a strapless neckline, and had been sourced from Villa Amour Vintage. For accessories, the model opted for strappy heels by Femme, a nude Saint Laurent Le 5 à 7 bag, and gold earrings.
This outfit follows another white pick by Bieber last week, which had been an archival John Galliano cut-out minidress. The 26-year-old had chosen the look for a date night with husband Justin Bieber, much like Amal Clooney, who wore a white floor-length dress for a romantic evening with George Clooney, and Jennifer Lopez, who celebrated her first anniversary with Ben Affleck in an ivory mini this month. However, a date is not the prerequisite for wearing a white dress, as Dua Lipa proved by showing off her take on the look while on vacation in Milan. In a series of photos shared with her 88 million Instagram followers, the singer was seen posing in a backless, halter-neck white slip dress.
For those looking for an effortless way to elevate their summer style, trust the celebrity-approved white dress to do just that.
