WOW, new style crush …

I have never heard of Nicola Peltz and I don’t believe many other people have either as up until the latest Transformers: Age of Distinction New York film, she was the 19 year old daughter of a billionaire with little to no acting experience.

But I have just seen the premiere photos from around the world of this young lady and I am hooked, no obsessed with her look!!!

Not only do I LOVE the choice of dresses but her hair and make up are sublime!  This girl knows how to look young in high fashion evening gowns unlike many of her peers *cough* Kylie and Kendall Jenner!!

Her make up hasn’t been applied with a trowel and I love the fact that she keeps her hair down so it looks soft and flowy.  The simple trick of moving her hairline makes it seem like she has used lots of different styles when she hasn’t.  I will continue to watch this lady VERY closely.  Just insanely beautiful.  Less is more ladies!!!


Wedding Belles ….

Are you attending a wedding this Summer?  Then listen up!  Everyone knows being a wedding guest days costs a small fortune.  There’s the hen party in Marbs, the overnight accommodation in the wedding hotel, money for drinks throughout the day, the “cash donation” seeing as nobody seems to want actual presents anymore …. The list is endless and pricey!

Last thing you want to have to do is splash out on a glitzy outfit which you’ll probably never wear again as the wedding pics will be all over social media! Let Belle Dress Hire take all the stress away from your shoulders.

I have some beautiful full length dresses that would be stunning to wear as a wedding guest.  Although my styles are predominantly formal/evening gowns many are of a floatier fabric with beaded detail rather then sequin/diamante making them perfect choices for a special occasion such as a wedding.  Most dresses also come with a matching wrap which keeps you modest for the ceremony and also more importantly saves a few pennies on having to buy a jacket or shrug.

Dresses start from just £50 to hire with a small selection of shorter length styles right through to full length, elaborate gowns.  Be sure to visit the website to make an appointment.

Dress like the Queen of Topshop …

Chloe Green attended the annual Cash & Rocket gala dinner in London at the weekend in a white and silver beaded dress.

I have to say, she does look really pretty in the photos but the dress doesn’t fit very well at all.  It also was badly wrinkled in some of the press photos I saw.  I hate the added bangles on each arm which I think cheapens this whole look.

Belle Dress Hire has an extremely similar dress in stock to Chloe’s but in an orange jersey with gold beading which actually looks much richer and is a fantastic colour combo for the Summer ….


Unlike Chloe’s dress, this style is a heavy jersey fabric and fully lined so it won’t wrinkle.  The colour is bang on trend and also suits blondes, red heads and brunettes!  For just £70 hire fee you could wear this stunning gown at your next event.

Annual Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards ..

Rather than focus this blog on the Fashion Icon Award winner on the night, Rihanna, I thought for once I would give Heidi Klum some brownie points!

Normally, I tend to pan her looks as either cheap looking, age inappropriate or just not fashionable but I have to say I LOVED the beautiful, peach coloured Donna Karan dress on her!

Ok, it’s not the fashion statement of the year BUT any of you heading off on a Summer holiday …. this would be a perfect look for an evening out for dinner and a few drinks.  It looks effortlessly chic, extremely comfortable and if you are bloated/swollen from the heat you don’t need to worry as this style hides it all!  A similar dress can be easily purchased on the High Street in fact I picked one up myself a week ago in House of Fraser in Belfast for about £80.

Like Heidi, keep your accessories to a minimum and hair loose.  Let the floating fabric and colour do all the talking!

I am so copying this look for my week’s holiday in Ibiza this Summer.
