    Growing up with a film buff for a dad meant that, while other kids my age were watching movies about the nerdy girl at school getting a makeover and being named prom queen, I was watching the classics from the 40s. I loved many of these movies, not for their timeless love stories, but for their heroines. Even in moments of crisis, these women always appeared strong, beautiful, and collected. With its swooping draped panels that cross at the bust, coyly ruched sleeves, and midnight-colored velour rose with beaded leaves, this stunning red dress by Stop Staring! brings to mind the elegance and poise of these classic characters. This is a piece worthy of a woman who never compromises - not when it comes to her convictions nor her impeccable wardrobe. Upon slipping into this fair frock, I imagine that you take on that dignity and self-assurance of these iconic ladies, as well as their legendary loveliness, and bring it with you everywhere you go. No matter what perilous situation you might find yourself in, you remain calm knowing that you have your grace, strength of character, and this fabulous dress on your side. -Molly, Fashion Writer
