Fabulous Spring 2015 Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane Red Dot Silk Mini Dress

This is one of my favorite pieces from the Spring 2015 Saint Laurent runway. At this point Hedi Slimane was the creative director since joining in 2012. He would depart in 2016 but at this point his future still seemed firm. The collection was short and sexy. Vogue's review of the show ended by saying "this collection straddled Slimane's worlds: L.A. groupies in Paris couture. You know he gets off on that idea. He's not the only one. The energy was contagious tonight. "I was having an orgasm," we overheard a model-slash-writer pronounce on her way out the door." The runway version was deeper cut at the front but that did not stop this version being seen everywhere after. We found multiple photos of being worn by the 'It' girls of the time and it still feels as fresh and sexy now as it did then. I love it.

This dress is so easy to wear and so flattering. It just slips on, zips at the back and drapes and falls into place. The front falls into a fairly deep V and then the fabric is gathered in towards the center at the base of that V. This gives you shape without being tight and fitted. Just Kim over you in the most flattering of ways and you can see by all of the added reference photos how gorgeous it is once on. From the waist that flares out into the swingy sexy flirty little skirt. The skirt is cut to be short and the fabric is so light that it feels a little scandalous when it's on the body but it does cover you. The sleeves have that classic slight balloon feel to them and pouf out of above their buttoned cuffs. The red is the perfect red that will flatter most skin tones and those white dots that cover the silk just make the dress feel joyful. It's that perfect mix between girl next door innocence and sexiness. It's one of my favourite dresses from the time that Hedi was the Creative Director. It looks to have been worn very little if at all. Excellent condition
