Celebrities Love…Michael Costello’s Farah Dress (Get The Look For A Lot Less!)

michael costello farah dress for less

Can you spot which of the dresses above is NOT a Michael Costello creation?

Maybe it’s its beautifully eye-catching oxblood/ burgundy hue which really is perfect for any season. Maybe it’s how skin tight the dress fits.  Maybe it’s because Kim Kardashian has one…whatever the case everyone’s going bonkers for Michael Costello’s £950 Farah dress. The dress is made out of lycra jersey and features a keyhole cutout at the front and an open back. The dress comes in both maxi and midi versions and is custom made when ordered.

Rocsi Diaz looked radiant in a white version at the Dubai International Film Festival on Wednesday 10 December 2014.


Kim Kardashian let her curves do the talking in the £790 custom Kim length Farah dress on a night out.

Garcelle Beauvais rocked a green version to the Golden Globe Awards party by InStyle. She added metallic pumps for extra edge.

Ashanti loves her some body hugging pieces so she couldn’t miss the chance to rock this dress.

Delta Goodrem looked absolutely stunning in a fishtail reiteration at the AACTA Awards.

Of course once there’s  a trend high street retailers waste no time recreating. The masses must be catered to!

English tv personality, Lauren Goodger was spotted in £37 Kimmy Dress by House of Catherine which is an exact replica. They stock the Kimmy Dress in blue and oxblood. The quality looks quite good for a copy to be fair. I expected worse. Especially because lycra fabric can go from wow to worst really fast.

Lasula also retails the Oxblood Second Skin Dress at £16. It’s an exact copy as well.

Do you love this dress? What’s the verdict? Is it worth the hype?

Also what colour do you prefer and who wears it best?

I love the white on Rocsi and the oxblood versions.

    The dress looks good on some and not so good on others. Lauren looks horrible in that dress. Doesn’t suit her body shape at all.

    I love love love this dress! Very chic and so stylish. I love Michael from his Project Runway days and he is just FABULOUS. I love the Oxblood version best and right below the knees. Rosci and Kim wore it best – tho I’m leaning more towards Rosci. Lauren’s version is unflattering I think because all her boobs are peeking out, which I’m not sure is what M. Costello had in mind. Great post. I must come by more often 🙂

    • Love your hair @ Black Zulu. Have you got a blog love?

      • Aww thanks for coming back to me. Will stop by. I am Mojisola by the way.

  • I actually love the white version of it. Looks classy with the nude heels. The long version is nice and I would wear it. Rocsi Diaz and Garcelle Beauvais are my fav.
    Cheers, Mojisola
