Last night I FINALLY had high speed internet + a few solid hours to sort through your Oscar-worthy dress submissions.
I very quickly developed a pretty strict set of rules:
2. NO CHEAP SPARKLES
3. NO CHEAP ANYTHING
As Fine Persecution pointed out, our girl is a journalist, not a celebrity. She needs to look fabulous without looking like she's trying to compete.
My three faves were... The Aidan Mattox Belted Linear Dress ($395, pictured above).
Long Side-Slit Dress (Originally $690, Now $241)
