So here is Lauren Bassett’s pick of the looks that will guarantee you are a style queen for your evening celebrations…
BACK IN STYLE
Backless has become the new cleavage if the red carpets are anything to go by, and with good reason. It’s a relatively easy look to pull off regardless of your shape, & you can go as daring as you wish. Just make sure you go for a long hem length, & the all-important spray tan is streak-free! Team with statement earrings for a timeless look.

LACE IS ACE
One of the A-List’s favourite new designers, Self-Portrait has helped to revive lace dresses over the last few seasons. With heavier lace used instead of lighter versions, it’s perfect for a black-tie event and many retailers now offer much cheaper versions of his signature style. Wear your hair up to fully show off such a gorgeous dress!

Many girls shy away from black for occasions like this, but they’re a great option – always flattering, dramatic, timeless, and you can mix it up with any colour of accessories. Choose simple styles with unusual necklines or shoulder detail for a bold look to ensure you stand out.
