How To Get That Look: “Amber Riley’s Sequins Dress in Essence Magazine”


Was I the only one drooling over “Glee” star Amber Riley’s sequins dress in the Essence Mag? For weeks I’ve been wondering where could I find a similar dress in plus-size without breaking the bank. Amber is wearing a $525 dress by designer LaQuan Smith. But leave it up to my fashion icon, Kim Kardashian, to get the look for us curvy girls. The Kardashian clan has a line out with QVC called K-Dash and I just discovered a similar dress in the Kardashian collection to the one that Amber wore in the magazine. Now although Amber’s dress appears to be silver sequins, the one from K-Dash is black but could pass. It hits mid-thigh just like Amber’s and has the same sexy look to it. (Mind you the mannequin wearing the K-Dash dress has no curves or shape so use your imagination here). Best thing it goes from size 0-22.
