Your Best Dress...



I'm not really a dress person. I wear jeans and shirts and tops and occasionally skirts, but hardly ever dresses. However, there are some dresses that are just too beautiful to resist gawking at. And below I've chosen some of the most beautiful book cover dresses I've ever seen.
Beautiful covers are a huge selling point when it comes to picking up a book, and I'm a sucker for gorgeous dresses on the cover.  It just makes me want to dive into the story and wear that particular gown!
What do you think of them? 


Dresses #1: 




Dresses #2: 





Dresses #3: 



Which dresses are your favourite?


Personally, I love the A Race To Splendor soft yellow gown, The Selection cold, turquoise, ruffled dress, and the layered, silvery gown of The Heir.

  1. I remember buying and reading the LUXE series just for the dresses alone. The selection came in at a close second but now I really want to read A race to splendour - that dress is just gorgeous!

  2. I love the second one -- it's very elegant and beautiful! The dresses in the Luxe series are exquisite that it makes me want to have one immediately haha. I'm not typically a dress person as well, mostly because when I wear a dress, it's only for fancy occasions or dinner parties and such. Anyway, this is a great post! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. I never entirely understood the "girl in a dress" book cover theme for most books. Half the time the girl in the story never even wears a dress (The Selection Series not included, I haven't read the others you listed). But, the covers really do catch my eye! I love the cover of The Selection. I also really like the Sweet Evil covers. You should check those out.

  5. This is such a fun post! <3 We love the dress on The One the most. When we read the Luxe, we literally only picked it up because the dress looked so pretty. Rumors' dress looks gorgeous as well!

  6. The dress of the Luxe was actually what drew me in. I love the color of the dress of the Luxe, but the poofs kind of throw me off. My favorite has to be the dress in A Race to Splendor. I really love the dress of The Heir as well. This post just makes me want to look up prospects for my prom dress this year! :D

    1. Yeah, I'm not a big fan of the poofs either, but at first glance they're beautiful.
      Oh yes that soft yellow gown is gorgeous!! I love The Heir dress as well.
      Oooh yes what a great idea!! Have fun!!

  7. What a TERRIFIC idea for a book cover post, Amy!!

    In "real life", I'm not really a dress person myself, either. Aaaah....but it's SO nice to fantasize about wearing a GORGEOUS gown at some splendid ball, just like Cinderella! Lol. For such an occasion, I'd be THRILLED to wear any of the FAB creations on the "Luxe" covers!! Yes, that's my FAVORITE group! And BTW, I DO need to read these books. Gotta get to them sometime, perhaps before the end of this year.

    Thanks for sharing these ENCHANTING book covers!! Hope you're have a WONDERFUL Sunday!! <3 <3 :) :)

    1. Thank you Maria! Glad you like it!

      Lol, you're so right! I guess I wear dresses more "in my mind" than in real life, haha!
      Ooh yes the Luxe gowns are gorgeous!! So glad you like those, they are beautiful!
      They are so good, I hope you get to them soon :)

      Sure :) Thank you, I hope you had a WONDERFUL day too! <3

  8. I'm also a jeans and t-shirts or shorts and tank tops kinda person, but dresses are so pretty to look at! I've always loved the dresses on the Selection covers. I've always wanted to wear a big, puffy dress lol like the ones on The Selection and The One, but I have no idea where I'd actually wear something like that. And I like the dress on Fallen too, that's probably the one I'd be most likely to actually wear. Though I'm loving the red and white of the dress on Envy. I'd wear that to my wedding lol.

    1. They definitely are, lol!
      Oh yes me too :) Yeah, the Fallen one is definitely the most practical.
      I love the Envy one too, it's unusual. Haha that's a great idea! I think it would make a lovely wedding gown :)
      Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts!

  9. The dresses on the Luxe covers are so stunning. I've always loved those. The dresses on the original cover for the Winner's Curse series are also fabulous (sadly, the update covers are horrible).

  10. I love to play dress up. Personally, formal wear is my favourite wear. I have to say though, the dresses I like most are the ones on The Winner's Curse trilogy. Especially the first one!
