Alaia and the Celebs Who Love It
The lovely Gwyneth Paltrow recently appeared in Switzerland wearing a pink knit dress from legendary designer Azzedine Alaia. Alaia, who counts Naomi Campbell and Stephanie Seymour as muses, is one of the most coveted designer brands and carries major fashion cred. Why is Alaia so special? His body-conscious knit dresses are tailored to be ultra feminine and flattering, which is why they are in the closets of the most stylish celebs and fashion insiders. Alaia is also hard to find — the reclusive designer doesn't show during Fashion Week and doesn't have a website — and the expensive dresses are found only in high-end stores like Barneys. Still, we love the look, so here are some of the cult designer's best dresses . . . and the women who love them.
