The musical and lyrical genius Florence Welch is generally renowned for her dramatic and grand stage attire. So when the singer tore up the stage in an uncharacteristic velvet LBD for her performance at the VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul show, Team LBD were definitely very intrigued. The low-key midi velvet dress was hailed from Emilio Pucci’s Fall 2011 collection, but don’t get us wrong, the dress still had some of Florence’s usual sparkle in the ornate embellished flowers and patterns. We especially love the thick velvet hem and the subtly puffed long sleeves which gives the dress an overall dreamy 1930’s vibe. The singer finished off the outfit quite rightfully with more velvet; plum pumps with thin ankle strap detail. Take a leaf out of Florence’s sartorial book and opt for velvet this party season.
