The colour is deeper than the pic shown, on the pic it looks a happy bright which it isnt in real life, the colors are muted. Still a beautiful dress. Compared to the original Rhode Ella dress it is definitely shorter and for some reason the back is shorter still, the black star is not on the left shoulder so sadly it is very obvious its not an original. And the neck is a little tight. There's definitely a pattern fault. The sleeves are wonderful however, puffy and looks very cool. I dont like the fabric, feels slightly rough on the skin, definitely a polyester and overclocking on the belt is somewhat visible but otherwise sewn well. I bought 4 of these as an experiment, the white/yellow marigold one is my favorite. This one is second. The pink and yellow are third and a little see through. This dress isnt perfect, but I still think it's cute and will wear it happily and if you love the Ella dress from Rhode but don't have $400 to buy it this is a pretty good second option. Fast ship.
