Leave it to a successful supermodel to turn pop culture’s most iconic red carpet moments into a lineup of evening wear. Elsa Hosk has designed seven exclusive gowns that nod to the ’90s and early 2000s for her newly launched collection, Helsa Atelier. Sharing her sketches to Instagram earlier this week and teasing samples of the Elsa Hosk dresses at the Cannes Film Festival back in May, Hosk has been building buzz around these frocks for some time — and rightfully so. Each one is a breathtaking compilation of lovely fabrics and romantic silhouettes that are hand-sewn, hand-beaded and made to order. The collection can be shopped through Revolve and Fwrd.
