Animal Attraction - Bet Lynch

This autumn’s hottest colours are grey, camel and brown tones, wearing them as block colours is all very well, but our advice is to break up with well chosen pieces that help the whole look become spectacular, especially if you’re looking for Party Dresses with a little WOW! factor for the festive season.

One way to be bang on trend but use the key colours of the season are through the use of animal prints, this look is just so HOT at the moment and will be very popular in the run up to Christmas for sure.

The Grammy’s were a truly glittering affair with the biggest stars of the music industry walking the walk in their red carpet dresses. From Lady Gaga arriving in an egg to Emma Watson in  her neutral coloured asymmetrical dress, there was something for everyone from the bizarre to the very beautiful. With both Natalie Portman and Jessica Alba both expecting babies, they also proved that it is entirely possible to look amazing in a red carpet party dresses with a baby bump. Jessica Alba looked stunning in electric blue.

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.

Top 10 Lipsy Party Dresses

Lipsy are without doubt best known for their fabulous party dresses, and with Christmas almost here (EEKS!) you may be interested in knowing what their top 10 party dresses are.

The top ten lipsy women’s party frocks are very democratic and as a result a great barometer of what style girls are buying around the UK at the moment, and as you would expect the clamour for Glamour in the run up to Christmas is prominent, there are lots of embellishments and glitz, but as you would expect from one of the best known party dress names, a variety of styles which are very hot and on-trend for the moment such as Maxi dresses, one shoulder dresses, body con dresses and bandeau dresses.

One should consider that this top 10 is for the style of dress and not necessarily the colour, so don’t be afraid to buy one just because they are popular, whilst there is always a risk that you may end up at a party with someone wearing the same dress as you, Lipsy’s dresses are available in different colours, so you shouldn’t worry too much about that happening. We always advise that you should always choose a colour which complements your skin tone, and emphasise your personal brand/look with appropriate accessories and make-up, that’s the thing that will give your look the lift necessary to stand out from anyone else.
