Trendspotting: Ultra-Ladylike Party Frocks

While a mini hemline or a curve-conscious silhouette has some serious sex appeal, there's something equally eye-catching (and sweeter) about a ladylike look. Perfect for party season, full-skirted frocks with cinched waists feel ultra-feminine and flatter just about everyone. Take a cue from this gorgeous celebrity lineup: Jessica Alba proves even metallics look amazingly ladylike in Thakoon, while Taylor Swift gives us all-out retro glamour in a scarlet-red Oscar de la Renta. Meanwhile, Miranda Kerr channels a little vintage romance in a floral-printed Louis Vuitton. These aren't your Stepford dresses, each take maintains that same lovely shape with special details via pretty patterns and a hint of glitz — ideal for the party season. Just shop our editors' picks below to channel the trend with your own perfectly ladylike dress.
