Hot or Not: The Bib Dress

Jemima Kirke at 2014 Tribeca Film Festival

The “bib dress” takes the elements of a dress and the elements of a bib — and then combines these two items into one frock. Girls actress Jemima Kirke (above) rocked a casual bib dress at the Tribeca Film Festival last week. Regardless of its toddler-sounding name, the bib dress is getting popular among Hollywood stars.

Blake Lively (above, left) wore an interesting version of the bib dress at a movie premiere. Her navy blue cotton dress was contrasted by what looks like a plasticy or faux leather bib. It’s definitely a different look, but Blake looked adorable as always. Olivia Munn (above, middle) looked great in her elegant bib dress. Olivia’s look is different than Blake’s – her bib part of the dress looked like a necklace.
