Metallic is everywhere this SS'13 season! Metallic fabrics by nature look incredibly luxurious which is why they appear in so many designer collections. For spring, choose colourful metallics in peach, brown, blue and grey from designers such as Stella McCartney, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Balenciaga. Metallic fabrics will also beautifully highlight a tan as Blake Lively demonstrates below. A lighter metallic like Blake's sensational silver Chanel evening gown also makes a great choice for a wedding if you're a guest or the bride! Shop a design close to Blake's by Rachel Comey (£549.77) and browse our favourite metallic evening dresses from Farfetch below.
Fashion week is already coming to a close and we have to say one of the stand out shows to us was Sass & Bide, which was set in a beautiful gothic church not far from the Houses of Parliament in London. On arrival, we mingled with the most friendly crowd, which included Pixie Lott who joined a front row of stars including Made in Chelsea's Millie Mackintosh and Olivia Palermo. We were also excited to hear that the amazing Charlotte Tilbury was head of make-up and the clean, fresh and pretty look worn with a ballerina bun was the perfect choice for the glamorous designs. We loved the beautiful mix of long and floaty white sheer fabrics, long dresses with thigh high splits, juxtaposed with more futuristic and structured fabrics. Check out the full Sass & Bide AW'13 show by designers Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton below!
At the pre-Wimbledon party in London last night you could almost mistaken tennis player Maria Sharapova for a supermodel! She looked as good as any actress on a red carpet wearing a beautiful sparkly silver dress, glamorous make-up and hair. Okay you can tell we were impressed! But such a silver dress we think is the perfect choice for when you want to dazzle at a summer party. Shop her winning look below.
