Bendels Windows Get Kara Ross Purse Dress Next Month




    Kara Ross has translated her coveted python Nox bag to a couture dress, aptly titled the Purse Dress, encrusted with crystals and hardware and setting up camp in the windows of Bendel's next month. 

    Ross' lovely trompe l'oleil rendition of the Nox, woven together with 4,500 Swarovski crystals and topped off with authentically styled bells and whistles, was modeled by the designer's equally lovely daughter, Avery, the face of the brand.  The dress will reside at Henri Bendel on Fifth from November 3-9, and more of Avery in her mom's designs can be found at the newly redesigned website
