Definitely – very feminine!

Absolutely, I would definitely wear these dresses…all except Carmen’s. I LOVE Jennifer Lopez’s yellow dress. Yellow is definitely a nice color for the Summer, very fresh looking. I like Kelly’s dress, the color is pretty, and it looks nice paired with tights. Carmen’s dress would look better without that belt, but I do like the color.

I would definitely wear this trend.

It depends what they look like there’s all different syles! It dosen’t look so flattering on Carmen! But on J-LO and Kelly it does. 2/3, so probably, most of the time, yes.

I just saw J-Lo’s dress on eluxury.com. Only in navy though….

I bought the dress in navy – awesome. Yellow is not my color and I thought navy was more versatile. Shopbop.com has it in white and black

I bought the Juicy dress at a Juicy store; I had to purchase the white one. They told me that they only made 50 of the yellow dress and Barney’s has it. I’m sure that dress has been sold out though.
