Making Dallas Even Better

The Parada Edit No. 3: The Summer Slip Dress

The slip dress, and all things sheer in general, are having a serious moment right now. While the staple will really never go out of fashion, cue the Kate Moss reference pin at the 1993 Elite Agency party in London, the slip dress is an ever-evolving classic. So, of course, we asked celebrity stylist Carlos Alonso-Parada to chime in on how he would pair it for a modern twist. We’re in love with the elegantly edgy take Carlos had on the model favorite.

The Scene: Stella McCartney’s Texas-Style Carnival in Highland Park Village

Designer Stella McCartney made an appearance at Highland Park Village on April 12 to celebrate her new colorful collection, inspired by the energy of summer. “It’s a very bold collection,” McCartney said.

Though the weather was less than sunny, the carnival-themed event gave off the laid-back feel of summer fun. The designer made the rounds and took photos with her followers, many of whom were donning McCartney’s platform sneakers and other designs. Models wearing McCartney’s summer designs manned carnival games, as children and fashion elite alike lined up to take a turn.

Of course, no carnival is complete without an array of classic treats. Elevated festival fare such as Italian cream cake popcorn and vanilla bean cotton candy (sprinkled with edible glitter, of course) were passed out throughout the evening, while vegan corn dogs and sliders were offered as a nod to McCartney’s advocacy for animals.
