Stella McCartney wowed in this black chiffon dress from her own label at the New York City Ballet gala last week, where she received a standing ovation for her costume designs featured in dad Sir Paul McCartney's first ballet Ocean Kingdom. Stella's swing shaped dress has a beautiful lace layer cascading from a thick halter-neck over a simple black fabric. This style is huge right now with designers like Valentino andD&G going crazy for lace and retro styles. But its real stand-out feature is the flurry of appliqué bows- a big trend for Winter 2011- dotted over the lace overlay.
