I’ve never been a lace girl, but after trying on (and wearing) a purple, strapless Dolce & Gabbana dress, clad in lace, to my interview for Miss California USA 2013, I recently fell in love! And good thing, because spring 2013 runways were flooded with pretty lace dresses, lace overlay, lace-applique, and lace embellishments. From Burberry Prorsum, Ellie Saab, Oscar de la Renta, and Stella McCartney to Vera Wang, Erdem, Emilio Pucci and many more favorites, spring 2013 is all about the re-emergence of this feminine detail, especially in the form of a dress. There’s more to lace than just the lace dress, however! This spring, try incorporating a lace top into your wardrobe or pair a lace tee underneath a leather jacket for a mix of feminine and masculine.
Below, we’ve spotted 10 instances where celebrity ladies are wearing fabulous lace dresses from spring 2013 “it” designer runway collections. We’ve also shopped contemporary and designer dresses clad in lace for you to choose from for the upcoming spring 2013 season.
