Birds of a Feather: Clemence Poesy, Diane Kruger, and More Love Feathered Dresses

There’s a trend taking wing among celebrities like Clemence Poesy, Diane Kruger, Caroline Sieber, and more—dresses and skirts embellished with feathers. Far from the tacky feathers we’re used to seeing on boas, celebs are donning gorgeous designer gowns covered in feathers.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, Caroline Sieber wore a downy feathered Chanel dress in snowy white at the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition in London. Chanel is loving feathers this season and at the same event English model Laura Bailey wore another feathered dress by the designer from their 2011 RTW collection, in robin’s egg blue. (Birds of a feather flock together, Emma Roberts wore the same frock earlier this year.) Clemence Poesy wore yet another Chanel feathered dress at the designer’s Collection Croisiere show. Her mustard yellow tweed-and-feathers shift was an unlikely but chic blend of haute couture and Big Bird.
