No, That's Not a Floating Floral Dress: Joey King's Outfit Creates a Cool Optical Illusion

The latest thing in fashion? Full-length bodysuits under party dresses. Joey King tried out the juxtapositional trend at the annual Elle Women in Hollywood event on Monday in Los Angeles, where she wore a black velvet bodysuit and impressionist floral-print dress from Richard Quinn's Fall 2019 collection. The actress completed the outfit with pointed-toe Christian Louboutin pumps and emerald and diamond earrings by Brumani.

Complete with gloves, the bodysuit creates a sort of optical illusion as it makes the dress look like it's practically floating. If it seems familiar, that's because Kendall Jenner wore a very memorable outfit by the same designer to the 2019 Emmy Awards, except her bodysuit was latex and the floral dress was floor-length. Meanwhile, Cardi B made headlines when she wore a head-to-toe Richard Quinn bodysuit to Paris Fashion Week. (And by "head-to-toe," we really mean it: even her face was swathed in floral fabric.)

Also in attendance at the Elle event were Euphoria's Hunter Schafer and Zendaya. As one of the magazine's many impressive November 2019 cover stars, Zendaya wore a Peter Do pantsuit with a pleated midi skirt layered over it, while Hunter wore a backless fringe Loewe top with pinstripe trousers. So, the evening certainly wasn't lacking in daring looks. Get a closer look at Joey's outfit ahead.
