Dress of the Year
The Fashion Museum in Bath has announced its Dress of the Year - Antonio Berardi's black and white trompe l’oeil corset dress worn by Gwyneth Paltrow to the premiere of her film Two Lovers in Paris.
Gwyneth said the following about the dress: ‘When I tried this dress on, I was amazed by the construction and the uniqueness of it. It was at once elegant and sexy and very very much its own dress. It is one of the absolute favourite dresses I have worn and I feel so lucky that we had that evening together in Paris’.
Each year since 1963, a fashion expert has selected a dress or outfit for the museum’s collection to represent the most important new ideas in contemporary fashion. Take a look at the Dress of the Year choices from 1963 to 2009 here.
