My favorite part of this dress is the color -- it is so chic, so sophisticated and so clean -- I love it. This design is obviously on the other side of the spectrum of Victorya's, but she completed the traditional look very well: it was sexy where V's was flirty; it was classic while V's was modern,;shiny vs. matte; long vs. short, etc, etc, etc .... It really came down to appropriateness. Great job, though, and congrats to finally making it to the top tier. Keep it up!
