There ok but i would not seek this sleeve out if it came with something i liked maybe.

EChizzle on

Yes. Very feminine and pretty. I especially like JLopez’s dress. Love the yellow. Yellow is an excellent color for women of color.

the only look i don’t like is carmen’s. she normally does the sexkitten look, but there’s something about the material of this dress and the space in the middle of the belt that doesn’t look good to me. also her hair looks flat, and the middle part is so homely looking on her. she has looked much better! the rest of the ladies look very comfortable and stylish.

Linda on

It is very cute, yes I would wear it.

Mirjam on

Definitely – very feminine!

Maryse on

Absolutely, I would definitely wear these dresses…all except Carmen’s. I LOVE Jennifer Lopez’s yellow dress. Yellow is definitely a nice color for the Summer, very fresh looking. I like Kelly’s dress, the color is pretty, and it looks nice paired with tights. Carmen’s dress would look better without that belt, but I do like the color.

I would definitely wear this trend.

Diva on

It depends what they look like there’s all different syles! It dosen’t look so flattering on Carmen! But on J-LO and Kelly it does. 2/3, so probably, most of the time, yes.

I just saw J-Lo’s dress on eluxury.com. Only in navy though….

Kat on

I bought the dress in navy – awesome. Yellow is not my color and I thought navy was more versatile. Shopbop.com has it in white and black

I bought the Juicy dress at a Juicy store; I had to purchase the white one. They told me that they only made 50 of the yellow dress and Barney’s has it. I’m sure that dress has been sold out though.
