Honestly, I had no clue who Doona Bae was until someone pointed her out to me. She’s a big-time actress in Korea.

But here’s the thing: what drew me to the Asian beauty was the sheer lace dress she wore to the European premiere of her movie, ‘Cloud Atlas’ (her first foray into English films).

Simply put, Doona looked stunning in the black high-neck, long-sleeved dress, and it was interesting how she made something sensually sexy seem so conservative…and proper.

How do you like her look? I find it quite intriguing. I love the mix she put together – from the hair to her creamy skin and red lips to that see-through yet prim evening gown.

Her sharp features and razor-cut bangs created such a gorgeous contrast to the romantic dress that you can’t help but stare. This brings us to the question: how would you wear her dress if you had it?

I have no details on Doona’s black lace gown yet, but if you love lace and want something sheer, you can try splurging on these dresses.
