Clad in a floor-length butterfly-print gown, it was almost as though Stacey Bendet deserved a spot on a pedestal alongside her models at the Fall 2014 Alice + Olivia presentation. In reality, she was among the guests giving us a taste of what it means to be an Alice + Olivia girl—complete with a butterfly in her hair.
Never one to shy away from over-the-top glitz and glamour, Bendet’s inspired clothing is for the girl who’s not afraid to show just how girly she is. And, on par with our deepest Glam Girl beliefs, the designer creates her clothes (and dresses herself!) with only three rules in mind—yes, that means that rules about mixing prints and wearing black with navy get chucked out the window. She confides,
1. “You can never sparkle too much.”
2. “Your heels can never be too high.”
3. “Party dresses are not just for parties.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
