The dress is Elie Saab, for those of you keeping track, and this is pretty darn cute, right? I kind of wish it were a vee-neck, and didn’t have that fishnet-like overlay at the top, but without that detail, this also might have been too sundress-y and bare for the event. But the color is great on her and, honestly, those are nits I’m picking. This is charming.

And I’m REALLY into those shoes (they’re Giuseppe Zanotti):

I don’t know how long I could stand in them — you can see that the heels are SUPER TALL in this product shot — but that’s the beauty of wearing them to a business obligation where you get to sit down the whole time!
