In Our Galaxy

There was a time when Roland Mouret dresses were only worn by the rich and famous. But thank God for the concept called masstige! Mere earthlings such as us now have the chance to be dressed by Roland Mouret. Here's the report from style.com:

"You remember the dress: It turned waifs like Sienna Miller into vamps, and vamps like Scarlett Johansson into goddesses—no wonder designer Roland Mouret dubbed it the Galaxy. Well, now you don't have to be an A-lister to be transformed by his creations. The London-based French frock maker, whose new label is called 19RM, has designed a five-dress line for Gap that hits the chain's U.S. stores later this month. The little black shifts, belted tunics, and red shirtdresses (the latter benefit Gap's RED initiative) may not have the dramatic corseting and cantilevering that the Galaxy did, but that just means they're a lot easier to slip into. The $108 top price tag helps, too."

Roland Mouret for Gap long-sleeve V-neck ruffle dress, $108, available December 1 at select NYC Gap stores: 1 Astor Pl., (212) 253-0145; 657 Third Ave. at 42nd St., (212) 697-3590; 734 Lexington Ave. at 59th St., (212) 751-1543; 60 W. 34th St. at Broadway, (212) 760-1268; 680 Fifth Ave. at 54th St., (212) 977-7023; 1466 Broadway at 42nd St., (212) 382-4500; 122 Fifth Ave. at 18th St., (917) 408-5580.
