Although evening gowns don’t quite figure into a zeitgeist dominated by streetwear, these garments and the women who wear them have their place. Vogue, that bulwark against the slurry of sloppiness this side of Bethlehem, knows as much and duly devotes its moment of the month in the December 2016 issue to the evening dress. Just in time for the festive season, Grace Elizabeth (pictured) wears an Erdem dress with earrings by Gucci. Nothing slouchy about it or for that matter Grace, who has been training nonstop en route to her debut at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris next month. Doubtless there will be plenty of occasions then for Grace to dress to impress as she so clearly does this month in Vogue.
