I saw the movie The Romantics last weekend, and while the movie was okay, the dress Anna Paquin wears to the Rehearsal dinner is gorgeous! You can find one image with a piece of the dress here, but at least it has the description under "The Blushing Bride" caption that tells you where the dress is from and who designed it! Well I still couldn't find an image of the original dress for you, but I am pretty sure I couldn't afford a Jasmine Di Milo dress anyways. Other details are I usually wear a size 8-10 in a dress and am 5'10" so it can't be too short. Please help me find a decent knock-off for $200 or less?! If you are having just to much fun on the goose chase I'm sending you on and you don't want it to end, shoes (I wear a size 8) and other accessories to match are also always appreciated. Much thanks! Anna"
