Scarlett's Pretty Party Frock

Scarlett's Pretty Party Frock

Ever since I saw Scarlett Johansson wearing this adorable party dress at the New York premiere of Scoop, I've been determined to track down the designer. Turns out, the surprisingly affordable frock is the Suzy Dance Silk Dress by Peter Som, available here for $1,530. I absolutely love the way it combines a girly 1960s silhouette with sophisticated accents, like the gray-velvet hem and black-lace detail.

Scarlett inspired me to check out the rest of Som's Fall/Winter 2006 Collection, which is a parade of great party dresses in black, white, and gray tones.


To view my other favorites from the line,

Though most of these dresses aren't available online yet, you can find Som's label at select Bloomingdale's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, and other stores.

KWM, I wasn't trying to give FAB a hard time. I like looking at pretty dresses as much as the next girl, and I think Scarlett's dress is adorable. But, $1500 is a lot of money. I guess I'm just jealous that someone considers that affordable when that would pay my rent for two months! It's kind of like when my friend, who is a size 4, continuously complains to me (a size 10) that SHE is fat. It really puts things into perspective. Oh, well. It's still a really cute dress!

What are fabfinds? I'm a student on a budget so it makes no sense to pay that for one single dress.

Fashion is not affordable ull have to create ur own cheap fabfinds. Im sure u know how to do that. Or ull figure it out.

Luna13 I must agree with you. That could pay half of my tuition for a semester. Where are the affordable things on this site?

Scarlette's is the only pretty one, but I agree $1500 for a dress is not affordable to most popples

I think FAB just meant that it's surprisingly affordable in that it's not some $10,000 unattainable, one of a kind designer original. Jeez give her a break, isn't it just fun to look at the pretty stuff she puts up? Its not like we are all going to run out and buy everything she posts.

I luv it! its such a classic piece that could even make the biggest tom-boy feel girly *wink*

Yeah, I wish. Surprisingly affordable for me is about $50 or less. For a dress like that, maybe $100!

And FYI: Not much Sugarpopl advertises is AFFORDABLE to the middle class household- she must think we're all Rockefeller, or maybe she just is.

Scarlett has "Cankles" ... LOL ... She is beautiful, but growing ugly ... Five more years she'll look like a wrinkled old hag with boobs down to her bellybutton and rolls on the belly like a walrus.

I'm sorry... did Fab say "surprisingly affordable" about a dress that costs $1,530?

Nope. Not feeling any of it except for the one Scarlett is wearing. WTF is up with those hideous balloon skirt/long dress things on his site?
