White Dresses Aren't Just For Brides: 25 Stars Stun In The Non-Color (PHOTOS)

Carrie Bradshaw once lamented the fact that she'd never be the woman who could wear white without spilling on it, and oh, how I can relate. Food tends to be drawn to my dress with some sort of gravitational pull. Yet, I love the look it it: Crisp and fresh, it's perfect for a brunch date with the girls. Sadly though, I'm not the brunching type. But I still bring out the summer whites, again and again.

White is perfect for the upcoming warm weather because it deflects the heat and goes from day to night so easily. I love nothing more than the thought of a little white dress for a day out and about, but how do I wear it without looking like a bride-to-be, and how do I keep it clean?

Never fear, dear readers, we are here to answer these questions. (Especially for those who know any impending graduates, who are pretty much required to go out and buy a white dress for the occasion!) Check out our tips for donning the non-color, and 25 celebrities who show us how it's done.
