Dream A Little Dream Of...


It is what every fashionista's dreams are made of: borrowing some of the world's most expensive frocks, getting professionally dolled up, and posing up a storm to the flashes of the paparazzi's cameras. Yet the harsh reality remains that most of us will not get the opportunity to parade luxurious designer gowns down a red carpet.

So while I am curled up on the couch in my tracksuit with a pot of tea, these delightful frocks are the perfect reminder that this reality is what fashion is all about: imagination and lust. If we could all have the red-carpet experience, who and what would we look to for inspiration?

For me, this Versace collection is the essence of red carpet romanticism and glamour. Feminine, figure-hugging gowns made with extravagant fabrics and intricate details. Simply divine. And exactly what this fashionista's dreams are made of...

{lace and silk delicately entwined}

 {love how the deep purple frames the face and fades to a luscious, fairy-floss pink}

 {a more edgy bodice and skirt paired with sheer detail on the sleeves}

{spied Jessica Biel wearing this frock to the Golden Globes after party}

{Grecian goddess meets Hollywood glamour}

{love how the feminine layers cascading down the gown are contrasted with a more edgy colour palette}

{rich red wine with a hint of sparkle}
