The Pink Dress that Gwyneth Paltrow wore to the 1999 Academy Awards was designed by Ralph Lauren to recall Grace Kelly. Featured in Hal Rubenstein’s 100 Unforgettable Dresses, it testifies to the enduring appeal of a pretty pink dress that makes the wearer look like a princess.

Dylan’s Candy Bar is a national chain of high-end designer candy emporiums conceived by Ralph Lauren’s daughter, Dylan. With maybe a dozen stores scattered between New York and Los Angeles, the brand’s flagship store on Lexington Avenue merges the worlds of art, fashion and pop culture with candy so successfully, it is like Willy Wonka exploded in your face.
A stand out feature the Lexington Avenue location is the Candy Embedded Staircase that connects the main floor with the basement level. These are the kind of details you can add to a retail space design when money is no object.
My teeth hurt just looking at these photos of Lucite stairs studded with Gummy Candy, Lollipops, Swedish Fish and Candy Corn.
