Even before she was added to the gorgeous cast of Gossip Girl, child actress Michelle Trachtenberg has always looked like a little budding socialite in her fantastic frocks.

Beaded necklines are as practical as they are trendy; the "built-in necklace" takes the guesswork out of jewelry.

Though this dress is rather skimpy on the top and on the bottom, it works because of the voluminous abbreviated ballgown skirt and impeccable fit.

Floral looks anything but frilly in sophisticated dark shades -- and there is nothing "babydoll" about an the embellished sash empire waist.

Nix the dress and combine two femme separates - wearing the skirt just below the bust creates a nouveau-empire waist frock.
