We're loving Vera's quirky interpretation of the mid-length dress that she wore for the New York premiere of Higher Ground, which she will be both directing and starring in, as well as her on-trend ombre hair! The typical, contemporary midi dress has a sharp, pencil skirt finish but Vera's fishtail design makes her LBD unique ensuring she stands out from the midi-clad crowd, oozing style and sophistication from every thread. Making like fellow screen stars, Elisha Cuthbert and Diana Agron, Ms. Farmiga succumbed to the lure of luxurious velvet and flaunted the hot topic textile in figure sculpting, accent panels. It's a great pity Ms. Farmiga didn't duplicate the same demure approach to exposure when it came to shoe selection. Although we love the adorable ribbon detailing on these strappy sandals Vera's classy outfit would have faired much better with a pair of sleek stiletto pumps. To rock the midi-length LBD, skyscraping shoes are vital in giving you those extra inches that are devoured by the sinking hemline and to shape those lower legs. Before you go running to your nearest Christian Louboutin stockists to get your sticky mits on those patent leathers, you need to first pick that perfect, mid-length figure-hugger. Have a peep at these glamorous designs, which merely scratch the surface on the underlying world of the midi-LBD.
