Celebrity Watch: How the A-list are Tackling the Ruffle Trend
Struggle to take a group selfie without it coming out in one big fat blurry mess? Whether that’s got anything to do with the seven tequilas previously downed… or not (liar!), next time spare a thought for the poor ol’ photographers who were tasked with the SS17 catwalks last season. With more frills, ruffles and bows than a flamenco float at Mardi Gras, we’re talking shutter speeds faster than Usain Bolt… or Virgin Media.
And now they’ve got to do it all over again, as celebrities, socialites and digital influencers alike take to the trend like a feathery duck to water. From tiered skirts to ruffle shirts, we pick the A-listers on their A-game (been saving that one for a while).
Gigi Hadid – White Ruffle Dress
Supermodel, Gigi Hadid, ticks so many boxes here it’s not worth counting; from the bardot neckline, to the Victoriana lace, to the frill detailing (ok, three, but still), she looks like a 21st century bride of Dracula in this off-the-shoulder ruffle dress. Either that, or a doily. Jury’s out.
Emily Ratajkowski – Blue Ruffle Crop Top
In a bubblegum-blue, Emily Ratajkowski’s ruffle crop top literally pops out of this picture with its exaggerated frill overlay. High rise and off-the-shoulder, it’s the perfect style to show off her sunkissed skin. *sigh*
Karlie Kloss – White Ruffle Shirt
As if her frilly shirt wasn’t already enough, Karlie Kloss adds to the ruffles with a silk bow round her neck at PFW last year, and you know what… it totally works. The spray-on leather trousers (ruffle-free, we’re pleased to add) help balance out the shape and stop things looking too Queen Elizabeth the first-ey.
Ciara – Navy Tiered Ruffle Skirt
More of an evening-appropes take on the trend, Ciara cuts a sleek silhouette in this top and ruffle skirt co-ord combo. The high-waisted design adds height to the shape, and prevents any risk of frump, while that super-cute cuboid-clutch cuts straight through the flounce.
Lily-Rose Depp – Ruffle Mini Dress
When it comes to frilly numbers, there’s a fine cami-strap-width line between fashion-forward and six-year-old birthday party. And Lily-Rose Depp clearly knows it… By throwing a satin bomber jacket over-shoulder, she adds just the right amount of edge to this ruffle mini dress. Take note.
