Kourtney Kardashian has a sell-out of a dizzyingly dress from an Australian brand label after wearing it on a family getaway to the Caribbean. The 41-year-old mother-of-three wore the $89 dress and $79 which is open to tourists who produce authorised travel permits and negative Cov-19 tests amid the pan-demic. Founded by 36-year-old Anna-Maria Sommer, Sommer Swim specialises in limited-edition luxury dress made from premium Italian lycra, an ultra-flattering fabric that glides seamlessly over the body without pinching the skin.
The vintage-inspired designs have drawn a loyal following that includes some of the world's biggest stars, with Bella Hadid, Kaia Gerber and Kourtney's half-sister Kendall Jenner among the most famous fans. Kourtney - who shares sons Mason, 11, Reign, six, and daughter Penelope, eight, with ex Scott Disick, 37 - looked typically ageless in a series of Instagram photos which show her emerging from a swimming pool.
The reality star's red set swiftly flew out of stock, but it's still available online in a range of colours including coral, turquoise, black, white and emerald green.
Shoppers who wear a size medium can also bag the dress in the sought-after 'Baroque' pattern, which became a cult favourite after Kendall Jenner, 25, raved about it on Instagram back in March 2020. Kendall's endorsement appears to have piqued the interest of her eldest sibling, who captioned her recent post:
'A little fun in the sun.' The POOSH founder's photos have amassed 3.5million likes since they were uploaded on Saturday - an eye-watering figure even by Kardashian social media standards - along with thousands of adoring responses.
'Jesus,' American YouTuber Sabrina Claudio replied. 'I'm gone,' Kourtney's fashion stylist Dani Michelle added, while top models Winnie Harlow and Lily Aldridge left rows of 'f-re' emojis. Comments also flooded in from Kourtney's fans, with many in awe of her age-defying beauty.
'Praying to God I look this good at 41 with three kids,' one woman wrote. 'Most interesting to look at,' said another, referencing the infamous insult Kim hurled at her elder sister in a 2018 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
The SKIMS founder cruelly branded her sibling the 'least interesting' woman to look at from their extended family, although her latest uploads prove she is anything but. Sommer Swim creator Anna-Maria Sommer told Daily Mail Australia it is 'amazing' to see some of the world's biggest stars wearing her designs.
'I am truly flattered when I see our dress worn and loved by celebs across the globe,' she said. And Kourtney is not the only celebrity frolicking around Turks and Caicos in Australian-made dress.
Last week, triple threat megastar Jennifer Lopez hit the beach on the Caribbean island in a remarkably affordable burgundy from Triangl, an iconic brand headquartered five minutes' walk from Bondi Beach in Sydney. The 'ageless' 51-year-old wore the $135 Macia set on holiday with fiancé Alex Rodriguez, 45. The grape coloured dress showcased J Lo's impossibly lithe washboard abs, honed to perfection through decades of dancing, gym sessions and on-stage performances.
Shielding her face from the Caribbean sun with a $875 Dior bucket hat, the mother-of-two - who shares 12-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony - looked blissfully content in the sparkling . Australian shoppers can order the dress in sizes XXS through XL from the brand's official website.
But lucky Sydneysiders also have the option of stopping by the flagship store on Campbell Parade in North Bondi. Founded in 2012 by Craig Ellis and Erin Deering, Triangl swiftly amassed a legion of celebrity fans with its signature neoprene design which was once hailed the 'world's most popular dress'.

The brand was widely touted as the official dress of summer 2015, when it was seen on the likes of Beyoncé, Kendall Jenner, Chiara Ferragni and a slew of Victoria's Secret models including Joan Smalls and Frida Aasen. Shifting a reported 1,500 a day earned the business an estimated turnover of $60million in that year alone.
Two years later the range expanded with a best-selling $107 velvet one-piece which flew out of stock almost immediately. Velvet separates followed in the 2018 spring/summer collection, which featured 1990s inspired in striking colours such as black, aquamarine and neon pink. At $135 for a set, considerably less than the price of styles from other cult favourite designer labels, fans are still snapping them in droves up three years on.
