Here’s how Erdem described the dress on their website (page no longer live) –

Transitioning as effortlessly between seasons as it does from day to evening, the Evita Dress possesses an innate elegance. Vibrant lilies in yellow, green and blue boldly punctuate a light weight, textured black matelassé background; intensely gathered around the waist, neckline and down the sleeves, delicate sprigs fall freely on the skirt, adding free spirited appeal to the formality of the demure silhouette.

Here’s a closer look at the textured fabric and the lily print:

  2. I pretty much love everything about this visit.
    + The three of them together is a total powerhouse
    + The dress and accessories look great together. I almost love every time she wears E.
    + The cause, amazing.
    + Her part… a little further down… Looks good on her. I’ve been wishing she would do a true side part for a while (albeit a little preppy).
