The sparkly gold Balmain dress Anja Rubik wore in look 22 of the label’s fall show has appeared on six major fall covers. Claudia Schiffer wore it on one of her 40 Zeit magazine covers for the 40th anniversary October issue, Anna Dello Russo wears it on the new fall issue of 10, and Natalia Vodianova wears it on the December issue of British Harper’s Bazaar.
Cindy Crawford wears it on the cover of the October issue of Indian Vogue, Abbey Lee works it on the cover of German Vogue’s August issue, and Toni Garrn models it on the cover of Spanish Vogue’s November issue. Interestingly it hasn’t had a strong showing on celebrities yet, though according to a rumor going around on the Fashion Spot, Anne Hathaway will wear “sparkly Balmain” on the cover of British Elle’s December issue, so this dress has another chance at cover fame, though lots of Balmain stuff is sparkly so who knows? But the fact that the dress has appeared on so many covers on models (save Dello Russo, but she has a model’s figure) perhaps says something about the brand, which is, let’s be honest, ideal for hot, skinny, tall people who have lots of fabulous parties to go to and be sparkly at.
