Yellow Dresses Andie Anderson Would *Totally* Be Caught Dead In

Holly Golightly’s iconic black gown, Cher Horowitz in her most capable plaid suit, or Andy Sachs wearing *the* Chanel boots. There are few moments in pop culture that make you want to literally run to the nearest mall shopping app and spend money, but when it happens, be prepared for that ensemble to haunt your dreams for the next 20 years. For me, the moment coincided with a pretty heinous rendition of You’re So Vain by Carly Simon.

No, I’m not talking about Tuesday karaoke with my coworkers, I’m talking about the iconic yellow dress from How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days. Granted, I may have been 10 years old when I saw the dress for the first time (praying you don’t do the math) but from that moment on, I knew I’d own it some day. Well, maybe not it but something similar.

I’m not going to lie, the memory of this dress spent 20 years living in my brain (rent free) but that’s all it was… A memory. At least until last weekend… I was stalking scrolling IG and saw my colleague, Nicole Pellegrino, attend a wedding in the dress. It all came flooding back to me in a moment and suddenly, I knew that at the next wedding I attend I’d also be belting out You’re So Vain living my best Andie Anderson life—*Isadora diamond necklace not included*. Nicole was kind enough to not gatekeep (tbh, I probably would have) and spilled all the details on her iconic dress.

“I got it from Lulu’s! It’s double-lined and really good quality for the price. It’s a bit long though, so you might want to hem it or just be ratchet like me and use a hair tie to tie it up while you’re on the dance floor. It definitely gives people something to talk about — be prepared for others to ask you ‘is that the dress from How to Lose a Guy In 10 days’ all night. But, I love attention so it’s fine.”—Nicole Pellegrino, Director of TikTok Content & Strategy
