Black is officially Back!

Currently the 76th Venice International Film Festival is taking place in Venice Lido, Italy.  The opening of the event yesterday on the 28th August saw some amazing gowns walk the red carpet. One thing struck me as I looked through the celebrity photos …. there were a lot of ladies wearing black!

Sometimes, black can be quite aging, therefore, it was fascinating to see young starlets and models such as Elsa Hosk, Sofia Ritchie, Martha Hunt and Barbara Palvin…….. all aged between 20-31 donning ebony coloured dresses.  The reason they all looked so fabulous is the fact that they kept their hairstyle and makeup relatively fresh and unfussy. There were no bold eyeshadows or lip colours paired with the gowns, the make up was mostly a nude palette and they all worked extremely well.

At Belle Dress Hire, I have some truly beautiful black dresses which would look fabulous with a slicked back bun or high ponytail and minimal make up.  All you need is a black bag and heels and you’re good to go!  If you’d like to make an appointment please visit
