Last week we lost another fashion legend when Hervé Leroux, the designer who launched Herve Leger, passed away at the age of 60. Herve Leger was launched in 1985 and reached peak popularity during the early ’90s following Leroux’s creation of the bandage dress. The bandage dress joins the little black dress (lbd) and the wrap dress in the hall of fame of dresses. Although Leroux hasn’t been involved in the Herve Leger brand for the last 17 years (he sold it brand to BCBG Max Azria Group in 1998) it’s fair to say that Herve Leger would not have reached the iconic status it has without the bandage dress which spurned the body con trend.
Herve Leroux on the red carpet
Sofia Vergara wore this gorgeous green maxi dress to the CFDA event back in 2013. Leroux has a knack for creating dresses that show off the female form in all it’s glory without being tacky.
Actress Heather Graham wore this teal maxi gown to the premiere of The Hangover III. The bias cut dress is flattering in the right places and hands down this is one of Heather’s best red carpet looks.
Red head Amy Adams looked stunning at the 2011 Sag Awards in this white Herve Leroux dress. The intricate panelling turns an otherwise bog-standard white gown into something special!
Viola Davis regularly wore Herve L. Leroux pieces. The How to Get Away With Murder star was attending the Producers Guild Awards. How good does she look in dark green? And, again we see Leroux’s handiwork with regards to the asymmetrical draping and and panelling at the bust.
This is perhaps one of our favourite looks from former Scream Queens star Lea Michele. The actress wore this nude fitted gown to the DGS Awards back in 2010. The red lips and Lea’s dark hair add just enough contrast to the dress and her skin tone for her to pull it off…
