The other day, we spotted YND regular Alessandra Ambrosio at the premiere of Disney Pixar’s Monsters University held at El Capitan Theatre in L.A. The supermodel graced the event’s blue carpet in a long white gown showcasing a sexy cross-back detail. This gown is an easy-breezy piece that is flowy and immaculate.

How do you like Alessandra’s long white dress?
It’s very minimal and understated but also very beautiful. The sexy back is gorgeous, but we also love the subtle details like the soft lines created by the pleating of the skirt and the faintly contoured bodice. It’s basically the long white dress to have.
If you agree, you can actually grab one for yourself. It’s a Robert Rodriguez creation called the Techno Crepe Pleated Gown, and it’s currently on sale at Neiman Marcus.

Now, just in case you don’t find it in your size, we’ve put together 5 long white alternatives for you to pick from. These are just as sublime and just as timeless:
1. ONE by Contrarian Babs Bibb Dress, $425
There’s a reason why the Babs Bibb dress is a top seller at Shopbop, and looking at it will tell you why. It’s made of silk charmeuse, so it’s dressy enough to wear to formal occasions — even to your own wedding! And the bare-back detail is simply jaw-dropping. Wouldn’t you agree?
2. Rachel Pally Anya Maxi Dress, $255
If you want something different, one that will highlight your shoulders and hide the tummy bulges, then the Anya from Rachel Pally is the perfect long white dress for you. It’s simple yet seductive, thanks to the racerback detail. And you can dress it up or down to suit the occasion!
3. Rachel Pally Long Cutout Dress, $238
Another stunning choice if you love sexy back details would be this cutout dress from Rachel Pally. This beauty doesn’t come in pure white, but it’s sexy, it’s flattering, and it stretches (so you don’t have to skip your meal at the party). What more can you ask for?
4. Parker Bayou Maxi Dress, $286
For ladies who find sweetheart and strapless necklines to be the most flattering to wear, this option from Parker is a must-grab. It features a quilted bodice and fine ruching at the waist. In our books, that sounds pretty perfect.
5. Nightcap Clothing Apron Beach Maxi, $216
For the free-spirited boheme, the perfect long white dress to grab would be the Apron Beach Maxi from Nightcap Clothing. This one comes with a cutout back and a delicately crocheted bodice that is simply exquisite. The frock may not be great for black-tie occasions, but you can easily work it as a day dress, as a cover-up, or even as a beach wedding dress if you like!
