The most enchanting dress to wear to your winter fêtes and feasts.
Most go to the Berkshires for a little downtime, but not Kim Taylor. Living year-round in this pastoral paradise with her crooner husband, James Taylor, and their 10-year-old twin boys, Henry and Rufus, her schedule is chock-full of social outings and activities. “I’ve worn Sara Campbell designs to events surrounding the Academy Awards, the Grammys, birthday parties (including Sting’s and Paul Simon’s 70th), Tanglewood galas, and BSO events for years,” she says. “I love her Magic Dress—I own in it in green, hot pink, chocolate, black, and blue-and-white striped.” Taylor hopes to spread the magic around this holiday: “I’d like to give this dress to Kelly Preston Travolta. We always exchange Christmas gifts, and she will love it.” Campbell credits Dolce & Gabbana, Nicole Miller, and tummy-tucking Spanx for the inspiration behind this creation, touted to hug the body in all the right places while hiding imperfections. “Stretch fabrics and crinkly textures allow for a high level of disguise, yet also offer a sophisticated look,” says Campbell. This silhouette in crinkled taffeta, released just for the holidays, is available in emerald, purple, and black for sizes 0 to 14 and can be found online and in-store at Sara Campbell (locations in Beacon Hill, Concord, Nantucket, Newport, South End, and Wellesley).
