If there’s one dress that every A-lister has in her closet, it’s Roland Mouret’s iconic Galaxy. A curve-hugging LBD that’s as chic as it is polished, this sexy little number has been spotted on everyone from Halle Berry and Naomi Watts to Beyonce and Victoria Beckham. The undisputed master of the feminine silhouette, Mouret is now bringing his flair for figure-flattering frocks to Banana Republic, for a capsule collection—including more than few Galaxy-worthy LBDs—launching in stores and online August 7. In advance of the collection, we sat down with the charming French designer as he bravely tackled our FLARE Questionnaire. Read on for FLARE’s favourite looks from the 25-piece collection, plus Mouret’s thoughts on everything from French films to bling-bling.
