Stunning - Emma Watson (photo PA)
Wow! hasn’t Emma Watson blossomed into a fine young lady? here she is wearing a beautiful Draped Velvet one shoulder cocktail dress by revived French Label Vionnet. She’s also sporting her new look which we think is sensational, and with the luxurious Velvet fabric making a lavish comeback she is Uber trendy too.
To me and most likely the rest of us, it doesn’t seem such a long time ago that Emma appeared in the very first Harry Potter film as Hermione Granger at the tender age of nine. But with several blockbusters behind her that any actor would be proud of, she has the world at her feet at the tender age of only 20.
However with Emma’s notoriety, she has lately become the target of not only the paperazzi but of the fashion press too, and is regarded as somewhat of a fashionista with her celebrity endorsement of the ethical fashion brand People Tree. Regularly papped at various Red Carpet events around the globe, her fans and the fans of fashion alike are eager to discover what creations she will be wearing.
By the evidence of the image above no the wonder she so popular as she looks just sensational as she’s seen here premièring her new look at the swanky Claridge’s hotel, an event to celebrate Warner Brothers acquisition of Leavesden Studios who make the Harry Potter film franchise. Her pixie style hair which we thinks suits her so well, and her fair skin contrasting with Deep red lipstick, she looks all women and not the kid we’ve become accustomed to seeing in the movies.
The dress itself is a stunning velvet and satin one shoulder cocktail dress by Vionnet the French haute-couture brand. Originally Established by Madeleine Vionnet in Paris back in 1912, The brand which had recently lost its way, has been giving a whole new impetus with its acquisition In 2008 by Italian entrepreneurs Matteo Marzotto and Gianni Castiglioni. They have vowed to re-create the Vionnet heritage brand whilst building a modern fashion house with the elegance and sophistication of the original Vionnet brand at its heart. Other than Emma Watson, the brand has some very famous celebrity clients such as Cameron Diaz, Carey Mulligan and Catherine Zeta-Jones to name a few.
The cocktail dress that Emma is wearing of course is so hot, it combines a number of trends which are so of the moment such as Velvet, Draping and of course the ever popular one shoulder dress style. There’s no better way to get inspiration for your party Dress than to look at what celebrity dresses are out there and Emmas Asymmetrical cocktail Dress is a prime example.
Now we may not have Emma’s budget to indulge in our fashion fantasies, but as always with Party Dresses we try to draw inspiration from haute couture brands and the catwalk to give you more affordable alternatives.
This One Shoulder Velvet Dress by Oasis for example is 3 dresses in one almost as it not only a classic LBD but with a bodycon shape as well as a Asymmetrical cocktail dress. Made from a sumptuous velvet which is soft to the touch this an ideal one shoulder cocktail dress for a more formal occasion and adds a twist to the LBD. Plus if you’re quick you can get an additional 20% off the price by using the voucher code STYLECODE20.
This Love Label One Shoulder Velvet Dress is so on trend this season, the plush fabric and the daring bodycon design makes this dress an head turning evening dress. The clever design of this dress with its bandage style velvet ribbons and one shoulder twist emphasises your curves while the sheer fabric pulls the look together. The dress has gentle ruche detail for added texture. For a rock chic look, pair with statement cut-out heels and sheer tights with and a matching clutch for a classy evening combo.
Another classic look is the One Shoulder Velvet Tuck Sleeve Dress, a Stunning one shoulder velvet dress with gathered detail on the sleeve. It’s perfect party dress when worn with sky high heels and a sequinned clutch, the perfect body con cocktail dress with a twist.
Finally we come to the Draped beaded dress By Karen Millen, this One shoulder draped jersey dress has contrast silk panels and hand embellished fringe detail to shoulder with an asymmetric hem. Despite not being Velvet it instead offers the draping whichis very popular trend at the moment and featured on Emma’s dress to such great effect.

Miss Selfridge have now launched their second Gossip Girl collection which features some very desirable party dresses. Gossip Girl is just one of a number of TV programs lately that are incredibly watch-able not just for their story lines but also for their style too. The programme which started back in 2007 is about a group of college kids gone wild and using its hall ways as a runway as seen through the eyes of a blogger The “Gossip Girl”. The great thing about the Gossip Girl style is that it each series marks an evolution in the style of the characters from the plaid uniform, that was so popular Anna Sui based the whole of her Target collection on it to the more sophisticated college styles.
Like all great TV programmes that have made a name for themselves for their style, Gossip Girl has its own stylist responsible for carefully crafting and developing the individual style of each of its characters. Costume stylist for Gossip Girl, Eric Daman assisted on Sex and the City before moving on to his current role.
The main character of the show Blair Waldorf is played by Leighton Meister. She is a lover of polished looks and expensive clothes. Blair gives a nod to Hollywood glamour but still keeps the look contemporary. Serena has a much more relaxed boho or hippy style. Eric Daman has a mantra when it comes to style which “to admire, attire — and be inspired”. He advises that ladies can develop their own style by looking for inspiration in what they admire. With so many girls admiring the Gossip Girl Style, it is likely that many will be using it as inspiration for their own personal style.
The < a href="http://tidd.ly/92eb9c8b" rel="nofollow" title="gossip girl party dresses by miss selfridge">Miss Selfridge Gossip Girl collection is small but perfectly formed and contains four very desirable party dresses or party outfits. Each dress has its own unique style like the characters in the programme with long party dresses, shorter styles and a jumpsuit., All of which would be perfect to wear to a Christmas party when teamed with a great pair of heels or glamorous ankle boots. In black and a sophisticated animal print all of the dresses are perfect for the evening with interesting details like open backs, ruffles and embellishment making them really unique and eye catching.
This short Gossip Girl Embellished Dress a great alternative to the LBD or little black dress. The chiffon sleeves are really elegant and make it great for the autumn and winter and the jewel embellishment draws attention to the shoulders. It has a vintage style to it and a beautiful scoop back and tie neck.
This Gossip Girl black cape maxi dress is simple but incredibly sexy with a scoop cut out back and high slit at the front. It is definitely a dress that will turn heads and would look great with one amazing statement accessory.
This Gossip Girl Beaded Jumpsuit combines a sophisticated style of jumpsuit with gold beading for a party outfit that is perfect for dancing the night away. A pair of metallic heels or clutch would work particularly well with this look.

Christmas party dresses are all about glamour, sparkle and style statements to get you noticed. Christmas is not a time for subtle looks that fade into the background. This Christmas the key trends in party dresses are eye-catching and bold. Here are the top 5 trends in party dresses .
The Sequin Dress
Everyone loves sparkle and if you don’t get the opportunity to wear it for the rest of the year Christmas is the one time that you can. All over sequins are hot news this year with gold and black also both being a really on trend colours when it comes to sequins. The sparkle of a sequin dress is balanced by the relative simple style which could include a t shirt style, vest style or even glamorous maxi dress style. One of the key influences on this trend is the amazing sequin creations by designer Ashish. We love this Toya sequin shift dress at Boohoo.
The Lace Dress
If you are looking for a party dress that is sexy in a very subtle way, then the lace dress is for you. Lace dresses are so huge this winter that there is most definitely a style to suit everyone from feminine fifties style dresses to more directional body con dresses. We love this lace tiered dress by Oasis which is the ultimate in luxury.
The Draped Dress
The draped dress is a trend that has been going strong for quite a few seasons now. This winter there are more draped party dress styles around than ever before with the one shouldered shape been amongst the most popular. The draped dress is probably one of the most flattering styles of party dress around this winter with its loosely fitting drapes concealing lumps and bumps and elongating the body. Lipsy have a great range of draped dresses that are perfect for partying in this Christmas. We love this one shouldered draped dress by Lipsy which definitely has a look for Greek Goddesss about it.
The Red Dress
Forget the Little black dress, this Christmas it is all about the little red dress. Red is such a great colour for Christmas and if you worry about whether red suits you,the red dress is available in a variety of shades to suit most skin tones. A bright red dress already makes a big style statement so one of the best ways to wear this trend is by keeping it simple. We love this Assymetric jersey drape dress by Lipsy.
The Leopard Print Dress
Leopard print is definitely seeing a revival this year and the winter sees it being featured on everything from accessories to coats. A Christmas party is a great time to wear leopard print as it is glamorous, bold and flattering. The leopard dress is such an eyecatching look that you will be sure to get noticed. we love this Janine cage back dress by Motel which combines a leopard ptint top with a slimming black skirt, perfect for dancing the night away.
