Sometimes keeping things simple really is best …

I think Anna Kendrick looked really beautiful  whilst attending the 2014 Unicef Ball in Beverly Hills.  The Pitch Perfect and Twilight star is only 28 years old and so her dress is totally age appropriate.

There’s always a temptation for young starlets to wear, headline worthy evening gowns which are just far too mature for them.  It’s a very fine line between young and mature, sexy and tacky and the problem is, it’s SO easy to cross.  Anna gets this just right.  The colour is a gorgeous rich raspberry, it fits her bust and waist to perfection and flares out to the floor, keeping the overall look unfussy and floaty.  Plus she doesn’t have to hold her stomach in all night!!!  With the fuller skirt at least she can breathe out!

A brand, new raspberry coloured dress has just arrived at Belle Dress Hire in a size 8 ….

Girls if you have a school formal coming up sometimes it’s more about getting the fit of the dress absolutely perfect and not necessarily worrying about all the bells and whistles.  Take a leaf out of Anna’s book and just keep things simple.

Ashley Greene dons midnight blue…. get this amazing colour at belle dress hire!


When you simply want something different and are tired of black but still want a slimming colour of dress …. Choose midnight blue or navy like Ashley Greene did recently at the Twilight Screening in New York.

A midnight blue/navy dress I always think is a little less harsh than black.  It suits all hair colouring and skin tones.  It’s such a rich and elegant colour I don’t know why we don’t all have more of this hue in our wardrobes!

belle dress hire has some beautiful navy dresses available for hire at the moment so you can emulate a similiar look to Ashley Greene and other celebrities.

Check out this fully boned, strapless dress with a small hint of diamante detail at the hip now available in navy blue.  This is one of belle’s most popular styles as it gives the wearer such a fantastic shape! With this dress, you can show off a nipped in waist whilst hiding a curvy hip.  Also available to hire in midnight blue is this wonderful backless, heavily embellished collar dress. No jewellry required with this one!  The dress speaks for itself! So glamorous and absolutely fabulous!
