She hit her mark astonishingly well. Every individual piece of this dress has become a Grace trademark, from the lace top to the cummerbund to the bell skirt, and countless gowns have been compared to Grace’s no matter how sketchy the connection (see: our discussion on the Duchess of Cambridge’s gown). I’m terribly picky about the use of the word “iconic”, which is thrown around far too often these days, but I would indeed say this is iconic. Honestly, I'm a little surprised that it grabbed only the #2 spot on your countdown. (It was #2 on my countdown too, mostly because I like a dose of the unexpected. Perhaps you do too.)
What puts this gown in the Top 10 for you?
