Unforgettable dresses

For Christmas, my little brother gave me a beautiful book called 100 Unforgettable Dresses by Hal Rubenstein . Over the last couple of days I have finally had an opportunity to sit down and read it. I am not a girly girl by any stretch of the imagination, but I do appreciate beautiful dresses and often find myself admiring them on celebrities. So, for this post I have put together 4 photos of what I consider 'unforgettable dresses'. This is in recent times, lets say the last decade.
Dress number 1: This was the vintage Christian Dior dress that Reese Witherspoon wore to the 2006 Oscars. I have always loved it because well, it sparkles. Beautiful and understated and yet it definitely says, look at me!

Dress number 2 & 3: I have always loved Michelle Williams sense of style. This was the Givenchy Haute Couture gown that she wore for the Golden Globe Awards in 2006. You will also remember the gorgeous yellow Vera Wang gown that she wore to the Academy Awards that same year. As much as I love yellow, this beautiful plum/purple gown is an absolute show stopper. For me, I just love the layers of tulle and its sense of fun. Of course I had to feature the yellow gown too. The red lipstick and gorgeous jewellery, need I say anymore?

Dress number 4: But this dress will forever be my absolute favourite. SJP wore so many great clothes in SATC, but for me this takes the cake - Versace Couture. Love it. It sparkles, I love the intracy of the bodice and little sleeves and adore her hair in that low bun. I have read that this dress was worth $80,000.

What would be on your list of 'unforgettable dresses'?
