Woman’s dress of blue/green bamboo-print silk chiffon with jewelled clasp. Worn with jewelled, high-heeled mules. By Donatella Versace for Versace.
The dress was originally modeled on the catwalk by Amber Valetta and then became one of the most photographed dresses that year. Jennifer Lopez and Geri Halliwell both wore the dress.
Chosen by Lisa Armstrong, The Times
Oriental look evening dress that consists of a halter neck top of Bordeaux dragon print satin with a mandarin collar, a matching bustier and fishtails skirt. By Tom Ford for Yves Saint Laurant Rive Gauche.
It was worn by Nicole Kidman to the Tony Awards in June 2004 in New York.
Chosen by Sarajane Hoare, Vanity Fair magazine.
Kingfisher blue silk faille balloon dress. By Alber Elbaz for Lanvin from the Spring/Summer 05 collection.
The Fashion Museum has several pieces in the collection by Lanvin, a long-established French couture house. One particular treasure is a green shot silk dress from 1919 with the characteristic drop waist of the late teens/early 1920s. There is no doubt that the Dress of the Year 2005 - also a green silk dress with a drop waist - has a kinship with the earlier piece from the same house.
Chosen by Charlie Porter, Associate Editor of GQ and fashion columnist to The Guardian newspaper.
