Dress Diaries: Tribeca Film Festival

Dress Diaries Rent the Runway Illana Plotnik



This Dress Diary was brought to Rent the Runway by Illana P.



I’ve used RTR once before for my company holiday party and was thoroughly impressed.  That’s why when my friend from LA invited me to his movie premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, there was no question where I’d find the right look.  The bigger question though, what to wear?

I had little detail about what we’d actually be doing that night so I needed to choose something versatile that could be dressed down or red carpet worthy.  I looked through every dress on the site that was for my size, shape, and date and found the solution, the perfect LBD, Herve Leger Wild Blackberry Dress. Putting on this dress made me feel like a million bucks! I paired it with a leather jacket to feel more casual for the theater.

The adventure started on my way in the cab when my cabbie immediately insisted on taking my picture for “the most beautiful lady.”  After the screening of the movie, we decided to make a pit stop at Chipotle for a quick bite to eat before hitting the swanky after party at Studio 21.  Taxi to theater to fast food to after party, this dress earned its place in my mind as MVP, most versatile player.
