For better or worse, not every style-minded individual is able to pull off Dolce & Gabbana's distinctively regal aesthetic. In seasons past, the Italian design duo has sent everything from bejeweled crowns to chainmail headpieces down its runways, each fit for an Arthurian legend. It's this opulence and costume-minded quality that can make various Dolce & Gabbana pieces more difficult to wear than others. When Katy Perry donned a medieval frock from the fashion house's fall 2013 collection for the 2013 Met Gala, critics hardly bat an eye at its splendor — but then again, not every celebrity has Perry's enthusiasm (or prowess) for thematic dressing.
Alas, we at Fashionista are easily excited when we see a model, actress or general "influencer" sporting one of D&G's more festive looks with aplomb. At the New York premiere of "Paper Towns" on Tuesday night, Poppy Delevingne did just that, hitting the red carpet in support of her sister, the film's star. For the occasion, Delevingne proved her fashion expertise and wore an instantly recognizable mini dress by the label with, yes, a diadem-like headband, made by Jennifer Behr.
But it was the frock's pockets — pockets! — that may have been the look's very best part. While the pouches in question were likely too small to actually keep anything in them, they certainly added a bit of excitement to a standard silhouette. This isn't the first time we've seen pockets on the red carpet — and if this get-up is any notification, we suspect it won't be the last.
