Under the Radar Trend: Stars

Six months ago, during Milan Fashion Week, Italian fashion duo, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana sent 64 'rockabilly'-style models down the runway, in 'teddy boy' suits accessorized with piano key ties, and star-printed dresses in a 50s-style collection. Fast forward half a year, A/W is (in fashion terms) upon us and a Dolce-style trend is finding it's way into our hearts and wardrobes.

No, it's not the piano key tie, but star-printed everything you can get your hands on. As per usual, it's celebrities and fashionistas leading the way with the cute and quirky, but still sexy, Dolce & Gabbana dresses which have been cropping everywhere.

Smiling out of September's Marie Claire, actress Anne Hathaway is wearing hers, while Kim Kardashian has been spotted out in two different styles. British actress Hayley Atwell has taken the starry trend on the premiere trail for her current release Captain America: The First Avenger, and both mothers-to-be Lily Allen and Jessica Alba, have turned to the trend to deck their bumps.

The thing with a trend that is under the radar is that--you have to catch them quick, because if you wait around they'll have flown off the shelves.
