No matter how pretty a dress might be, what's the point if it's only good for standing around awkwardly because it's just too fragile to do anything else with it? Busting a seam, crushing a flounce, or exposing just a little more of yourself than you meant to are all casualties of Way Too Expensive Dress problem. But fret not, says Lanvin! With Alber Elbaz's frocks for spring, you can do like Jamie Bochert in these Meisel-shot ads do, and rock them like a hurricane. Bochert got the gig by proving to Elbaz that she has moves; Recently, she ran 12 blocks to chase down a purse snatcher...and succeeded! While in shoot, "She moved so fast, even the chandelier was moving with her," said Elbaz. "That's the kind of girl I like." And frankly? Us, too. Bust a move, lady!
