The Age of Superheroes (Dress Code)

I've always thought I was the only mortal in the world who had wishes to be a superhero. I believe I've explained you why here, right? Anyway, my obsession with superheroes are partly because of the (super stylish) clothes - including the flying capes. And that's exactly what I need to share with you today... I've been noticing a current choice of the celebrities (and their stylists) on the red carpet: a gown that comes with a cape. The first time I remember spotting the fashion trend was on princess Kate Middleton, she was wearing a Jenny Packham stunning sample at the premiere of the latest James Bond film 'No Time to Die' in London September' last year.

Since that, the cape dress/ gown has been a constant on the red carpets and catwalks too. Come take a look and tell me your thoughts about it. Would you wear it? Will it give you super powers or make you feel invincible? It's a double YES for me :)  

Léa Seydoux also at the 'No Time to Die' World Premiere wore a custom Louis Vuitton gown with a keyhole neckline and sparkling cape.

Jennifer Lawrence attended the world premiere for the Netflix movie 'Don't Look Up' at New York City's Lincoln Center on Dec. 5, in light-gold Dior gown that featured a embroidered silk with pleated cape sleeves and was selected from the brand's spring/summer 2022 collection.
