The DVF one is OK, but I wouldn't buy these. The last one looks like a costume

So, they're inspired by a shirt, not a tuxedo. I have a tuxedo, it looks nothing like these dresses lol! :D

Stone Soup, most of the dresses have pin-tucks running down the front, just like a tuxedo shirt. I like the Philip Lim and the Trovata.

You know what? I don't see how these dresses are inspired by tuxedos. All I see are empire lines. ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.
