New dress similar to Suki Waterhouse now available!

Suki Waterhouse wore a soft blue, vintage inspired, aquamarine, lace gown by Burberry to the London Palladium recently.  It is so lovely and refreshing to see a young girl looking sexy yet covered up in a long dress!

A new, full length, chiffon gown has arrived into Belle Dress Hire which I think is very similar to this Burberry style but certainly doesn’t come with the designer price tag and is available for hire in a size 6/8 in a pinky lilac shade!  Check it out …..


You can really rock Suki’s style by hiring this dress from Belle and “roughing it up” slightly by simulating the Bridget Bardot eyeliner and loose tousled “out of bed” hair which Suki does so well.  This combination gives a funkier edge and takes some of the “etherealness” out of the look.


Or you can mimic Ruth, seen here at an Awards ceremony in Dublin wearing one of Belle’s “Kate Middleton” style dresses in a gorgeous, rich burgundy wine colour.  The mesh sleeves keep the tops of arms covered and shimmer with delicate beading whilst the waist is highlighted at its best with a belt of beadwork.  Ruth has kept the look young and fresh with her choice of hair style and expertly applied make up plus she hasn’t overdone the spray tan!  So important ladies to NOT go over the top with tan, honestly it looks ridiculous especially at this time of year.  Think more Suki than Snooki!!!!!!

It’s official, Kate goes into labour!!!

As of 6am this morning, the Palace released a statement that Kate Middleton had indeed gone into early labour at St Mary’s Hospital.  The royal baby is on its way!!

The eyes of the world have been on Kate during her 9 month pregnancy journey and particular attention has been paid to her fashion choices.  She has been dressing immaculately throughout her pregnancy and for a woman who is photographed on a daily basis, it’s been no mean feat!

It’s not like Kate has been able to dress down in track bottoms, a baggy t-shirt and flip flops, unfortunately her role has involved attendance at black tie functions and celebrations, all of which required formal attire.

I have had a number of women come to Belle Dress Hire in the early stages of pregnancy who have found it extremely difficult to find an evening dress which fits well, doesn’t mimic a sack and is comfortable.  I have found these ladies some beautiful dresses which have fitted the bill 100%.  It’s important to look for styles which don’t have a lot of boning in them as this can restrict movement and can become uncomfortable if worn for a number of hours.  Block colours rather than a busy pattern also work best on expectant mothers as it elongates the shape and minimises the size of the bump.  Check out these very flattering “maternity-friendly” styles available for hire at Belle ….
