Christopher Kane Scalloped Silk Dress, $5,165 (sold out on Net-a-porter)
Be still my beating heart. When I initially saw this stunner on the runway, I swore that it would be mine; then I saw the astronomical price on Net-a-porter and I swore. (Apparently, though, this is not a recession for everybody. I'm so jealous.) Kane's collection explored the prehistoric (yes, as in dinosaurs) through scalloped shapes, three-dimensional silhouettes, and Bam-Bam-styled animal prints in his avant garde show. The soft, muted peachy pink and cream tones turn fierce in this complex shape, and it's something I'd want to wear day and night--it's that fabulous. It's just tragic that I have to choose dinner over dinosaurs.
