See the Most Popular Patriotic Dress in Hollywood (Hint: It's Been Worn by Meryl Streep and Wendy Williams)

Jul/04/2014 at 12:00 PM ET

Catherine Malandrino’s American flag shirtdress is almost as much of a classic as Old Glory itself. Every year a new star steps out in the design, putting her own twist on the red-white-and-blue number. The frock seems to appeal to all age demographics, can be worn belted and is an easy way to show your patriotic side this Fourth of July. Unfortunately, it’s sold out pretty much everywhere. Since we can’t nab our own, let’s look back at the celebs who have the iconic frock hanging in their closets instead.

Halle Berry was the first to wear the design, choosing a sleeveless version for her Swordfish promo tour in 2001. Meryl Streep hit the carpet for Doubt in 2009 in her stars and stripes, and in 2012, Tatyana Ali wore it to the BET Upfronts.

More recently, Katy Perry and John Mayer coordinated their patriotic looks last Fourth of July (see photo below). And this year, two stars stepped out in the dress: Wendy Williams wore it to film an episode in May, while Miss USA fittingly displayed her patriotic pride while touring her crown back in June.

Dying to rock the look? You could try this American flag tank dress, or an oversize tee from ASOS. If you want to show a little more skin, check out this crop top and swimsuit, both available at Urban Outfitters. And of course, American Apparel has an extensive red, white and blue collection.

Are you loving the dress? What do you plan to wear this weekend? Will you be donning stars and stripes? Share your thoughts below.

The Ballet Flat Celebs Love -- in New Colors and With a Discount!

Jun/30/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

If you’re going to buy ballet flats, make sure you get these Yosi Samra ballet flats (after all, celebs love them, they’re one of the few brands that actually offer support and are comfy after a long day of walking, the price is great and they look way more expensive than they are). And if you’re going to buy Yosi Samra ballet flats, make sure you get them here since we’re hooking you up with an exclusive discount — and we’ve got the newest color ways.

We’ve been fans of Yosi Samra flats for a while now and the black patent cap-toe that just came out is one of our all-time favorites. We immediately added that one to our closets, and now we’re trying to decide between the rose gold and the crackled bronze.

You can nab an extra 15% off the price tag by entering STYLE15 at checkout (for first-time Joyus shoppers only). And before you hit “complete” on your order, be sure to check our more stuff we love here.
