If anyone knows dresses, it's Jill Stuart. And she comes by her fashion chops quite honestly: her parents ran the iconic '60s label Mister Pants, which dressed leading ladies of the day like Lucille Ball and Natalie Wood. As a result, Stuart was raised in the world of fashion and, at only fifteen, sold her first collection to Bloomingdale's. Needless to say, there was nowhere to go but up from there, and that she has—especially in the arena of dresses. With their sheer silks and rebellious hemlines, Stuart's girly designs border on daring, but always remain proper. We love the understatedly sexy allure of this strapless lemon yellow silk gown from her JILL Jill Stuart line for that very reason. Statement-making without being forward, its sweetheart neckline, draped folds, and stunning color are one way to stop all conversation in a room (in a great way). Its classic silhouette will also make it relevant season-after-season without ever seeming dated. Get it here!
