Party dresses that will make you ‘Almost Famous’

Models Direct: Party dresses from Almost Famous
Models Direct loves fashion label 'Almost Famous'

Upcoming London label Almost Famous is increasingly becoming the go-to source for unique party frocks.

The retro-inspired dresses are popping up everywhere the moment – on Mischa Barton, Dannii Minogue and Geri Halliwell at Elton John’s White Tie and Tiara Ball recently, as well as in Vogue, Cosmopolitan, Grazia and most of the gossip mags.

Juliana Oei, the line’s designer, says her influences include Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O and Coco Chanel – and it shows. These items are beautiful, sophisticated and just plain fun!

With prices starting at just £50, it’s nice to know when my payday comes this month, I’ll actually be able to afford one of these gorgeous dresses. It’s not every day you get to shop in the same place as Mischa Barton, and say your outfit is inspired by Audrey Hepburn!

Just one question…which one should I buy?! Have a look at the fashionably scrumptious range here. I really need help deciding!!!

Harry Potter: Style Icon?

Most people will have been aware of the release of the latest addition to the Harry Potter film series, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and I’m sure plenty of you have been to see it.

It seems Harry Potter has become a bit of a style icon, with lots of people rushing to buy similar circle shaped glasses frames. Glasses Direct have noticed the sale of the John Lennon frames (£69, code: JL260F) increase dramatically as people try to achieve the wizard’s look.

The founder of Glasses Direct said “The Harry Potter-style glasses have been getting more and more popular recently and we’re seeing them flying off the shelves, on broomsticks! What we’re surprised by is that the popularity of these glasses seems to span all ages.”

And at least if this look doesn’t catch on, you’ve got an accessory for the next fancy dress party you attend, and two options of who you could go as!

So, the fashion has recently gone from square, Buddy Holly style glasses to thin, metallic circular frames, what shape frames will it be next?
