Now THIS is a fun dress. Olivia Palermo wore this long-and-short polka-dotted Bensoni dress to the 2nd Annual amfAR Inspiration Gala held at New York’s Museum of Modern Art last Tuesday. Check her out:

The dress is not only “mulleted” (the state of having a mullet), but it’s also bubble-skirted, HUGE polka-dotted, and side boob flash prone. In short, it’s a difficult dress to pull off, but you must agree when I say that Olivia Palermo is pulling. it. off.

Now, as hard as it is to get away with a dress like this, similar styles are also as hard to find. So, instead of looking for look-alikes, we sought dresses with the same fun, playful, and lighthearted spirit as Olivia Palermo’s.
Our only requirement is that the dress be polka-dotted — big, oversized, exaggerated circles preferred.
