Nearly every list you’ll ever find regarding fashion “essentials” will likely include some kind of black dress. While we agree that an LBD is a great addition to any closet, the one Emma Roberts wore yesterday is by far the coolest we’ve seen in a long time.
From a distance, her midi-length, long-sleeved number looks almost polka-dotted, but it’s little celestial graphics—Saturn and crescent moons, specifically—that are scattered about the design by Markarian. Not familiar? We weren’t either. Markarian is the just-launched NYC label by Alexandra O’Neill, and it’s named after the scientist who discovered the Markarian Galaxies. All her pieces are cosmos-themed, and they are all incredibly elegant without being too pristine.
Roberts is one of the very first celebs to debut this new line, but we have a feeling we’ll be seeing more and more of it. Scroll down for a closer look, and commit the name Markarian—the brand, and yes, the scientist—to memory.
