Trendspotting: Long-Sleeved Minis With Gathered Waists

Quite possibly one of my favorite looks right now is a draped long-sleeved dress with a gathered waist, as seen on these gorgeous ladies:
From left: Emmy Rossum in a bold orange draped J. Mendel design and dangling diamond Coomi earrings; Kirsten Dunst in a ladylike violet shift, pointy-toe black heels and a crystal barrette.
From left: Olivia Wilde in a Michael Kors draped jersey dress, nude Brian Atwood suede heels and a Jimmy Choo clutch; Lauren Conrad in a draped white Quail minidress with Jimmy Choo gladiators and a stack of diamond bracelets from Dana Rebecca Design
I'm obsessed.  I love the the high neck - somehow the less skin that shows, the sexier it looks.  However, the long sleeves and general covered-up style still give it the appearance of professionalism.  The gathered or bow-tied waist makes it super flattering for nearly every kind of body, and the solid color, whether bright, neutral or dark, ensures that anyone can wear this look.  As always, though, be mindful of your hems! (Emmy and Lauren's veer on the side of too short).  Regardless, I will definitely be on the lookout for this!  Loves.
