A La La Land Dress

I went to see La La Land yesterday and enjoyed it very much indeed 😊.  It is a wonderfully happy making film (although beware, the ending is a little bittersweet) and is the perfect mash of a modern day love story with a golden era Hollywood musical.  I have a lot of love for Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as the leads (Ryan Gosling can currently do no wrong, see The Nice Guys and Drive).  They sing catchy tunes, they dance, they frolic in LA, they fall in love, and they even dance in a starry night time sky.  And the film is just so colourful, it’s bright and cheery in primary colours, and Emma Stone has a truly excellent wardrobe.

I am now currently on the hunt for the perfect La La Land dress, and I thought I would share some of my findings πŸ˜πŸ‘—πŸ‘ .

The Yellow Dress

I love yellow very very much, and I am hoping that this summer will be awash with La La Land style dresses.  For now, Young British Designer Georgia Hardinge has made a lovely dress in a nice bright warm yellow.  If you want something with a little more every day, try this dress from Anthropologie.

The Blue Dress

LA LA LAND (2016) Emma Stone as Mia

The little blue dress.  This Miss Selfridge dress is so Emma Stone in La La Land, an ideal day to night, in cobalt blue. If you are after a more party party dress, this flicky number from Karen Millen will do the trick.

I like this little black dress by Maje a lot, a really great take on the LBD.  For simpler options try these dresses at & Other Stories and Ted Baker.

Karen Millen have an amazing range of dresses at the moment.  I like the orange mini below, but if you’re after a more La La Land copycat outfit, try their Pleated Trench Dress in orange, or for a really sumptuous dress, their Taffeta Ballgown, which comes in three colours.

The Green Dress

Emerald green is such a great colour and this beautiful dress from P.A.R.O.S.H. is ideal πŸ’š.  If you want something a little less fitted, this olive green satin dress from Cos is also great.

The White Dress

White is so hard to get right, you don’t want to look too bridal or too tacky.  I think Somerset by Alice Temperley have nailed it with this flared lace dress (and if white just isn’t your thing they have it in blue too πŸ’™).  For a simpler option also try this dress by Marysia.
