The Best-Kept Secret Only the Most Stylish Celebs Know

If you happened to see our coverage of Victoria’s Secret model Ana Beatriz Barros’s wedding, then you may have already found yourself crushing over Alessandra Ambrosio’s ultra-flattering illusion-inset dress by Maria Lucia Hohan. If not, take a moment to let the jaw-dropping look sink in while we further familiarize you with the under-the-radar designer who’s about to blow up.

Over the past year or so, as Hohan’s line has become more and more known, it seems like every celebrity has taken a turn wearing one of her feminine pieces (and that includes Gigi Hadid, Zendaya, and Beyoncé), culminating most recently in Ambrosio’s stamp of approval not once, but twice as she wore Hohan’s gowns for two separate occasions within the same month. Couple this with the sheer perfection of the pieces themselves and the fact that fashion-forward retailers like Bergdorf Goodman and Fivestory in New York have picked up the line, and you have a recipe for major success in not only the celebrity sphere but also the fashion world as a whole.
