    Named in Vanity Fair’s Hollywood Next Wave, Bella Thorne is moving beyond the Disney Channel programs and on to a career in movies and music. Seen on the red carpet and popular television shows, Bella’s sweet and spunky personality looks great in sleek evening gowns and short floral dresses.

    French Connection floral pattern knit dress

    When I think of floral dresses, a neutral palette isn’t my first thought. But this French Connection floral dress uses natural colors for a sophisticated twist on the floral dress. The print trails down the sides of this knit dress, highlighting curves and lengthening your torso. I think Bella would look fabulous in the Brule/Black color way of this floral dress.

    Mixing floral with metallics creates a glamourous statement, as this strapless dress by La Femme shows. Gold floral motifs are accented with beaded pearls all down the sides of this ruched dress. There’s definitely posh spunk in this semi formal dress.

    Don’t you think Bella would look great in all of these floral dresses? Keep your eyes out, as she’s photographed at the next gala or on the cover of a magazine. Or better yet, get your sweet spunk rolling when you wear one yourself. Which would you choose?
