Balmain Resort 2014 Collection

A lot of fashion bloggers poke fun at the concept of "resort wear." What is resort wear?

According to Wikipedia, "Resort wear is a specialized clothing style, as well as a year-round fashion "season". Sometimes known as "cruise wear", it was originally marketed by "upscale" stores and collections only to very affluent customers who were expected to spend the post-Christmas/New Year's weeks in warm-weather climates."

I love me some Balmain, but I don't know what kind of resort or warm-wear climate this is designed for:

In reality, resort wear means "outfits celebrities wear."  

Kate Hudson isn't the first person I think of when I think of Balmain (more like Gwen Stefani) but this is a great step out of her comfort zone.

This light blue dress is easily my favorite out of the entire Balmain Resort 2014 collection.
