Blake Lively covers Elle China in the Gucci dress editors can’t seem to get enough of

We’re not quite sure how you would describe this Gucci feathered dress that seems to have editors the world over absolutely smitten. So far we’ve seen it featured on both Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Upton, and that’s just in the September issues. Now we have Blake Lively starring back at us from the cover of Elle China wearing the same exact frock. 

So why this love affair with a Gucci dress? Well, this dress has the magic star factor. It has netting in all the right places that flatter women universally. It also has a unique way of spreading the embellishment as to draw the eye here, there, and mainly away from, shall we say, problem areas. 

Now if only there were a way that such a garment could become a part of our daily lives. Anyone else picturing this ensemble as perfect attire for a Hunger Games feature? “Hello, paging Katniss’s styist”

Sadly, such a major fashion statement isn’t the sort of thing you’d wear out to grab a Starbucks. And so it shall stay in the magical world of fashion editorials and perhaps with a few choice appearances on red carpets. Keep an eye out. This isn’t the last you’ll see of this crazy creation.
