It’s no secret that Gen-Zers are obsessed with the stars.
“What’s your zodiac sign?” has become one of the most popular introductory questions that they ask each other, usually followed closely by “Which Harry Potter house do you belong to?”
So it’s no surprise that many of them are looking for prom dresses that reflect this fascination with the stars and heavenly bodies, really. The constellation dress from Andrea & Leo–known formally under its full name, the Constellation Selene Tulle Ball Gown–is one of the most celestial pieces in the Los Angeles-based brand’s collection. Let’s delve deeper:
What is a constellation dress?
A constellation is defined as a group of stars that appears to form a pattern or shape in the night sky. People have been observing and naming constellations for thousands of years, and different cultures have their own interpretations of the patterns they see in the stars.
There are 88 officially recognized constellations that cover the entire sky. These constellations are used by astronomers as a way to locate and identify different stars and other celestial objects. Each constellation has a unique name and a designated area of the sky, and many of them have interesting myths and stories associated with them.
Some of the most famous constellations include Orion, the Big Dipper (also known as the Plough or the Great Bear), Cassiopeia, and the Southern Cross. These constellations are easily recognizable to many people and are often used as navigation aids for both astronomers and people traveling by land or sea.
Constellations are beautiful and fascinating to observe, and they provide a sense of wonder and awe at the vastness of the universe.
A constellation dress, as interpreted by Andrea & Leo, is an ethereal confection of a garment. The Constellation Selene Tulle Ball Gown features an embedded constellation print that adorns the strapless bodice and the top half of the full skirt. It cinches beautifully around the waist before flaring into gossamer layers of tulle to create an undeniably graceful silhouette that’s just this side of literally heavenly. It’s available in ice blue, a darker true blue, and silver. Of them, the constellation appliques are most visible in the true blue version.

The constellation dress from Andrea & Leo is guaranteed to be a best-seller, and for good reason. The fact that it’s a unique garment will surely draw customers to it; the constellations arranged in an artful manner is a step above the traditional sequins and beads that usually adorn prom dresses.
