It is available in UK sizes 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14.

Complete the look with the AllSaints Python Serpent Court Shoes and the Marsh Leather Biker Jacket.

Forever Unique Stardust Dress in Nude

The Forever Unique Stardust Dress, as seen recently on Selena Gomez and Amelia Lily from the X Factor,  is a pretty in nude pink prom dress with a boned bodice with built in cups, which provides a sweetheart neckline. The bodice is embellished with mirror jewels and bugel beads, and it has a lace up fastening at the back. The skirt is made from layers of tulle net in nude, ivory and gold. The hemline is wired for shape, and the dress has a concealed side zip fastening – so you don’t have to keep lacing up the back.

The dress is hand embellished so each one is slightly different.

Style note: Absolutely divine and no need to wear a separate bra with this one, the Stardust will leave your head in the clouds as you dance the night away. Look for accessories in either nude pink or sparkly silver. Nude heels will make your legs look longer anyway so it’s always worth having a pair in your wardrobe. Some dangly silver earrings, perhaps set with Swarovkski crystal, would really make a great finishing touch.

All Saints Mallu Chain Dress

All Saints Mallu Chain Dress in Bitter and Black

The All Saints Mallu Chain Dress is a silk, sleeveless, above the knee strappy dress with a v neck and stunning low cut back with multi chain embellishment.

The dress is made from washed silk which has been over dyed. Further embellishment is provided by peacocks, birds and flowers created from a combination of matt and shiny beads and sequins.

Available in UK sizes 6, 8, 10, 12 and 14.

Material: 100% silk

Style note: This is an amazing dress with superb attention to detail. The most stunning detail is the back and the resplendent chain detail, but if you need to wear a bra you will have to look at some of the more innovative concealed options (I find “liftits” to be very useful in these circumstances!) This dress gives you a really sleek and sophisticated silhouette.

Complete the look with the All Saints Elsa Chain Clutch in black  – it’s such a great match it must have been designed with the Mallu in mind – and a pair of heels – the Omega in black, also by All Saints, are rather stylish.

Code: 71CS4

Style note: This is a sensational, sexy and sparkly dress. The ornate sequins and beading are fabulously created and this dress looks very different to other sequinned dresses around at the moment. This dress should be teamed with killer heels and nude tights for maximum effect, a piece of chunky silver or pewter coloured jewellery around the neck would also add to the glamorous appearance.
