Unforgettable in Every Way.

In every way, 
And forever more 
That's how you'll stay."  
- "Unforgettable," Nat King Cole.  

Evening dresses are so memorable, because the dresses have such class. Now, my memory is good, but remembering who wore what to the Oscars is not something I can exactly remember for the rest of my life. However, there have been dresses that I have remembered and loved for a long time, and I am sure I will probably never forget. I thought that I would share with you dresses that have been memorable in my own opinion. If you have a most memorable dress moment, share a picture of the dress in the comment box – even if it is yourself at Prom or someone on the red carpet! We look forward to reading your post!  - J

Well, Audrey Hepburn in herself is so memorable, but Hubert de Givenchy + Audrey Hepburn is unforgettable forever. Hubert de Givenchy designed this dress for Hepburn for Sabrina in 1954. I love the whole shape of the dress! The dress is so beautiful, and she is so beautiful. 

Well, most of you have probably never seen Hello, Dolly in 1969 with Barbra Streisand and Walter Matthau. Honestly, I am most likely featuring this dress, because Hello, Dolly is one of my favorite films. I love this glamorous dress for its intricate beading and the glitz. Little joke here (although partially serious!): I told my mom that if I could ever get my hands on this dress, I’d wear it to my wedding, and I’d incorporate songs from the film into the wedding, “Hello, Dolly” would be walking down the aisle, “It Only Takes a Moment” would be our first dance, and I’m sure I could fit all the other songs into appropriate times. It would be cheesy and hilarious, but I know I could do it classy and unforgettable – just like this dress. 

There are more beautiful evening dresses on the red carpet than there are fashion regrets on the red carpet, meaning that I pretty much love all evening dresses. However, when I first saw this dress on Anne Hathaway, I instantly loved it. She was so classy with her red lips and this slick white dress with its many sequins. She’s worn many gorgeous dresses, but this is definitely one of my favorites. 

Now, like I said, this article is about the most unforgettable dresses that I have seen, and this Escada dress is somewhat hard to explain why it is on my list for the most unforgettable dresses. I am going to guestimate that I was 10 years old when I started purchasing fashion magazines and in one of my first fashion magazines (guessing it was either InStyle or Vogue), I saw this Escada advertisement, and I will be honest, the advertisement isn’t a good representation of the dress. The top half is simple, but I’m not even sure all the ruffles are part of the dress – maybe she is just lying on the pink ruffled silk? Still, I have always remembered this dress, and I still love the color and the beauty of it.
