Printed textiles, fiercely feminine patterns, and theatrical colors are what Zandra Rhodes' followers seek and undeniably find in every piece from this British designer. Rhodes, who helped give London its spot on the international fashion scene in the 1970s, has clothed a bevy of beauties ranging from Nicole Richie (pictured above) to the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Our very own Cameron Silver refers to Rhodes as "a print designer with the mastery of a tailor" whose style is "immediately identifiable."

This chiffon mini is the perfect go-to for that date with Mr. Right Now. Imagine you've landed in the Mediterranean needing an evening look that says "I'm loads of fun, but I'm also a lady" (think advice from's Derek Blasberg in his book "Classy"). The tulle sewn underneath the top layer of chiffon adds volume and additional movement that's perfect for a late night stroll on the beach. Hand printed with gold, silver, and hints of emerald green, Rhodes created a dress that easily reads modern, nostalgic, but more importantly, ready for a bangi'n good time!
