Kendall Conrad in Nili Lotan

Long & Lean

In late April, I attended an evening wedding in NYC. Black tie is always a challenge, so I was interested in what the chic crowd would wear. Designer Kendall Conrad showed up in this Nili Lotan gown. Granted, at 5’10’ with a Southern California sun-kissed complexion, the ex model could wear a paper bag and still be the standout in the room. But, in this dress, Kendall was positively stunning. The floor-length sheath’s simple design is basically a blank canvas for accessories—a true forever piece.

Dress also available final sale here.

  • In the nineties, I purchased a nearly identical dress, in cashmere, by Malo, dark charcoal gray. Love the simplicity. The couple looks stunning.

  • LOVE! I love the simplicity which makes it sexy at this time. I had a dress like this in my 30’s. I still own it, but a little too “sexy” at my age. It was not an expensive dress and I have never gotten so many compliments. Thanks for the replacement.

  • In the early nineties I had something almost identical from Calvin Klein in navy. I left it in the closet in a hotel on holiday and I’ve mourned it ever since. I would love to get hold of this dress.

  • Agree with Catherine. I love Nili Lotan’s clothes and am happy to see that Barney’s has expanded what they carry of her’s.
