The now-infamous striped dress from Prada’s lauded Spring 2011 collection
Last year the darling of glossy magazine covers was the earthy Miu Miu applique dress, but this year bright, bold frocks from Prada’s Spring 2011 collection reign supreme, landing a whopping 48 covers according to Fashionista.com. Our favorite of all the Prada cover looks is without a doubt the bold, colorblock striped dress (pictured above). This dress has graced no less than 8 fashion magazine covers, was worn in a floor-length version by Hailee Steinfeld at this year’s SAG Awards, and it puts to rest the myth that horizontal stripes are unflattering.
In short, we lust for this dress. Unfortunately the exact frock is no longer available (blame all those magazine photo shoots!), but there is good news: we’ve scoured the ‘net for the best bold, striped dresses à la Prada Spring 2011 and put together a slideshow of our amazing finds (including the Oasis Stripe Frills Dress from ASOS, which is a dead ringer for the Prada original) – see them all after the jump.
