At the Brit awards Cheryl Cole arrived in a show stopping Stella McCartney sequin dress with a thigh high split. She took the unusual choice of wearing nude shoes instead of black and it really worked making her legs look super long.  

Rhianna also made a big entrance with a very colourful concoction of an evening dress in purple and turquoise teamed with her red locks that definitely got every one’s attention although it attracted very mixed opinions. The dress was by Christian Dior Couture. Avril Lavigne proved she is a real rock chick even when it comes to red carpet dresses with a full skirted little black dress and neon streaks in  her long hair. If you love the retro look, you will love Sophie Ellis Bextor’s choice of red polka dot prom dress. Lisa Snowdon opted for an eye catching pop of colour in a neon yellow asymmetrical mini dress. Jessie J also rocked the red carpet in a thigh skimming Vivienne Westwood Couture corseted dress.

If you want to get a bit of that red carpet style and wear amazing celebrity party dresses, it can sometimes be difficult to find your favourite looks without the celebrity budget. That is why we are so excited about McBerry, a great place to find celebrity party dresses at great prices.

Each of these eras has some fabulous party dress styles which will look amazing this spring.

Forties – Tea Length Dresses
