What makes a dress go from trendy to transcendent? In 100 Unforgettable Dresses Hal Rubenstein, InStyle Magazine’s Fashion Director, traverses the runway and red carpet to find gowns that possess a certain je ne sais quoi. From Julia Roberts’ red drama in Pretty Woman to Halle Berry’s Oscar-worthy embroidered sheer illusion by Elie Saab and the frothy tulle Versace haute couture gown Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the Sex and the City series finale, 100 Unforgettable Dresses makes us dream. “No dress gets to be memorable on its own,” Rubenstein tells Saks POV. “But something magical happens when the right woman wears the right dress at the right time.”
