the little black leather dress: Carla Dawn Behrle‘s Lily Poison dress, featured in Men in Black III, transforms Nicole Scherzinger into a screen siren. The New York designer, who specializes in handcrafted leathers, adapted her original knee-length LILY dress for the shorter, Poison Lily version in MIB 3. Whether designing for the big-screen or red carpet regulars like Madonna, Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Angelina Jolie, or Julia Roberts, Behrles leather creations have no bounds.
Despite the huge explosions and fast action-scenes, the little leather dress becomes the focal point in MIB III with its clean lines and strong silhouette. By pleating ‘Poisons’ back, Behrle added tucked interest without needing additional embellishment. Demonstrating her proficiency for tailoring in leather, Carla Dawn Behrle, at 17, was the youngest to join the Scenic Artists Union. Drawing international attention including Patricia Fields, Carla incorporates leather into each collection. From cute cap-sleeved tops to lace-like skirts to this HOT little number Nicole wears on the screen, she fearlessly leaves us with a [durable] impression.
