“The Look for Less”/ “Fashion Déjà Vu”: Lil’ Kim & Carmen Electra in the “Herve Leger Bandage Dress”


I know, I know, before I even get started you’re probably saying, “Why is Bella blogging on this overated dress?”. Yes, this dress was worn by every celeb, some numerous times, all of last year but a newer version has been released. Lil’ Kim, Stephanie Pratt and Carmen Electra were all seen wearing this dress just last week to Hollywood events. I personally thought this dress would have been out of style by now too but for some reason it just keeps popping up. Herve Leger has changed the style of it a little and it’s still selling off of the shelves at a price of $1,590 at stores like Bloomingdale’s and Intermix.. Mainly I think because it accents all of a womans curves in just the right places. This dress can be worn by both straight-size and plus-size women.  (Per my post on yesterday, no matter what size you are, be sure to wear the right foundation/girdle underneath).  Women like Kim Kardashian and Lil’ Kim do this dress justice.
