    J lo is no where near in the league of Audry Hepburn or Jackie O. She is very ‘hit and miss’.

    Personally I feel that this dress has none of the taste or elegance of the former dresses. If I was to go for something in this line, I would have chosen Liz Hurley’s Safety Pin dress, when she first hit the red carpet with Hugh Grant

    Krissy, you are absolutely right. What a class act Audrey was! And Jackie is one of a kind.

    Didnt Diane Von Furstenberg invent the wrap dress? xx

    Vanessa,
    Diane Von Furstenberg didn’t actually invent it, but she made it very popular. The popularity of her dresses was due to their modest prices and endless varieties of colors and patterns. They could also be dressed up or down with accessories.

    Sandy,

    Wrap dresses are universally flattering. Whether a size 2 or a size 22 a wrap dress is flattering. They create a vertical line making the wearer look taller and thinner, the wrap accentuates the waist, the A-line flows beautifully and hides a multitude of sins.

    Jill,
    Maybe I’m the only one who doesn’t look good in a wrap dress. They make my stomach look as if it is protruding, and they accentuate my slight sway back.
