Evening Gown Envy!

Every now and again I get seriously green eyed when I see red carpet dresses that I think are amazing!

Unfortunately, without a mega budget, these styles will only be seen in my dreams, but hey I still love to imagine what I would look like wearing them!  After seeing this year’s Met Ball photos, I fell hard for some of the looks and I mean HARD!

…. Emma Stone and Blake Lively pulled out all the stops to impress hostess Vogue Editor, Anna Wintour, in gowns by Thakoon and Gucci Premi

And you have to admire the simply stunningly bold Oscar De La Renta dress worn by SJP.  Love or hate it you have to admit it makes a statement and gloriously celebrates fashion which is what the Met Ball is all about!

BIG time, serious dress envy when I saw Rosie Huntington Whiteley wear a jaw droppingly daring Balmain sort dress!  I WANT it

Aaahhhhh, I would die happy if I had Victoria Beckham’s dress hanging in my wardrobe.  You NEVER disappoint VB and I love the fact this is from her own collection with trademark full zip running the length of the dress at the back ..

And I have to admit I actually really like Chrissy Teigen’s dress by Ralph Lauren as well.  It wasn’t my absolute favourite of the night BUT I loved the collar detail.  I thought it was stunningly elegant and the silver grey colour did stand out from the crowd too

Back to daydreaming about these gorgeous gowns and the gorgeous women who wore them. Bloody lucky ducks!!!

 

Glee-orious Dress!!

 

Fancy looking like Lea Michele in her stunning Oscar De La Renta Gown at your next big event?  Well, unfortunately this designer dress will probably set you back a few thousand pounds which is a deposit on a car!!  So use your head and contact Belle Dress Hire for an appointment to try on this fabulous dress which comes from Paris.  For just £70 hire fee you can echo Lea’s designer style ….

My fabulous customer, Lisa Coulter chose this dress to wear for the Evening Wear round of the 2013 Face of Northern Ireland competition, which was recently held in the Canal Court Hotel, Newry.  The shape and silhouette of this dress is exactly the same as Lea Michele’s designer frock right down to the layered skirt.  Granted the colour is not a definite match as the Belle Dress Hire gown is more of a green with navy blue tones than a solid navy block colour but we’re talking a price difference of thousands here ladies!!!  Lisa has teamed the dress with a beautiful beaded necklace but you could also wear very long, heavy ear rings instead of a necklace.

This dress at Belle Dress Hire is a personal favourite of mine.  It is so well shaped and looks chic, elegant and what I love most is the fact that it’s different to the more typical slinky evening gowns that the majority of ladies wear.  This dress is available to hire in a size 6/8.

Many thanks again to Lisa for choosing Belle Dress Hire and also to Image 31 Photography.
