..to the more voluptuous Jill Scott...
Hot!

1. Silence & Noise Printed Maxi Dress, $68; 2. Arden B Peacock Print Maxi Dress, $128; 3. Lily Strapless Maxi Dress, $98; 4. T-Bags Printed Maxi Dress, $132; 5. Curvy Jersey Maxi Dress, $95.
Splurge with these beauts:
1. Patrizia Pepe Tie Dye Bandeau Dress, $408; 2. Tibi Riviera Paisley Maxi Dress, $300. 3. Marciano Genova Maxi Dress, $198.

I'm loving the maxi-dress look. I'm 5'9". Do you think they look hot on tall women also?

On Tall women (or petite) I could see a bit of tailoring helping...maybe tall girls should just try to find the longest dress possible?
