Alice + Olivia designer Stacey Bendet is taking her first (very sparkly) steps into the world of evening wear! The designer is known for her party looks, favorites of celebrities like Katy Perry and Selena Gomez, and now she’s amping it up for more black-tie options. “The whole concept was to bring our party dresses into the gown world,” Bendet told InStyle.com. “They are the perfect party gowns!” The 20-piece collection includes details like leather bodices, open backs, and tiered lace skirts, and is also sprinkled with the elements that made her line so popular, like touches of glitter and plenty of sequins, which are sure to pop in a sea of LBDs. Click through the gallery below to see our favorite pieces from the line, and shop them in stores and aliceandolivia.com.
