While we were busy being obsessed with gingham (Gingham pants! Gingham clutches! Gingham slides!), a handful of celebs were dipping their toes into another pattern pool. From Kate Middleton to Laura Dern, here are four celebs who have been giving polka dots life. (Ready the credit card.)

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge’s love for polka dots is well documented, but when she attended Wimbledon with Meghan Markle wearing a polka-dot Jenny Packham dress, we immediately craved an equally sophisticated way to add the classic print to our wardrobe.

And who could forget when Markle’s gal pal and former Suits co-star Abigail Spencer arrived at the royal wedding wearing this Alessandra Rich polka-dot crepe de chine number? This dress has everything—a statement collar, a figure-flattering waist and a Queen Elizabethapproved hemline. Yes, please.

Laura Dern

When it came time for the Tale premiere, Laura Dern looked no further than this gauzy Rodarte dress. With its billowy sleeves and sheer bodice, this frock is equal parts 9-to-5 and date night.

Keri Russell channeled the dancing girl emoji in this flirty Johanna Ortiz gown, subsequently making us reconsider our stance on mixing ruffles and power prints.
