The Jewelled Dress Hybrid

Did anybody tune into the BAFTA’s last night?

Although I didnt make a point of it, like sparkles to a magpie, my eye was caught by the stunning dress of Kara Tointon as I flicked through the channels to catch her stepping up to present whatever award it was that she presented last night.

Dazzling in a blush pink silk number by Temperly London, the dress is encrusted with silver, crystal and gold embellishment creating a hybrid look that melds the concept of statement jewels with the ethereal red carpet ball dress. Although in my opinion, this kind of embelishment can really tread a fine line between high class couture and common high street trash, Kara carries this look off beautifully with her hair and accessories styled to perfection.. very vintage hollywood glamour! oui oui

Maybe one of these days you’ll see me venture further into this hybrid land to compliment the lace and chain collar line with statement jewellery garments such as this (vintage of course).. keep your eyes on this space people!
