This Dress Has Outrageously Good Reviews and Happens to Look Triple the Price

In case you haven't noticed, secrecy isn't our strong suit. When something is so good it's firing up the group chat, such as Rihanna's pregnancy announcement, you know we'll be the first people to tell you about it. The next thing that's been making the rounds in all of our Slack messages? This beautiful number aptly called the Venus dress.

Just like Sandro Botticelli's famous painting, it's a garment that has a way of instantly making you feel like an ethereal goddess. Made out of a no-wrinkle crêpe fabric, it's absurdly low-maintenance for just how transformative it is (believe us—we've seen it in person), and the word stunning really is an understatement.

Since we're perpetually on the hunt for easy statement pieces, this dress ranks high on most of our wish lists at Who What Wear. We could go on and on about the pros of this tiered beauty, but we're visual creatures. Below, see how the fashion set and editors are styling the best seller, and keep scrolling to read their complete takes on the piece.

"The moment I saw this dress, I just knew it would be a best seller. I felt glamorous as soon as I slipped it on. The fabric has just the right amount of stretch to it, forming to every curve of my body perfectly. Adding a belt that actually is the handle from my Gucci bag made my OOTN feel very me." — Sierra Mayhew, associate fashion editor

"First of all, I love a fancy dress that's also comfortable and machine washable. Aside from that, I think this would make for a really cool spring wedding or garden-party dress when everyone else is wearing black and metallics." — Allyson Payer, senior editor

"This dress makes me feel like I should be hosting a chic dinner party. The ruffles add just the right amount of dressiness but don't make it feel too over-the-top. Bonus: If you're a bride-to-be like myself, it's the perfect piece to wear for any spring wedding-related event. Just saying." — Anneliese Dominguez, fashion editor, branded content

There, she worked on a multitude of projects, including styling inbook feature stories for New York magazine's print issue, writing and pitching market stories for The Cut, and serving as fashion lead for The Cut's branded content.
