Camille wears Philosophy long-sleeved gown / Nikita wears Temperley London sequined gown
Dressed to thrill
For an exquisite dress for that fancy bash or black-tie winter wedding, you’re spoilt for choice this season by Philosophy, Alexander McQueen and Merchant Archive, to name but a few. Temperley London has created this shimmering gown exclusively for Selfridges this season – and let’s face it, if you can’t wear head-to-toe sequins at Christmas, when can you?
Gucci - giant pussy-bow blouse
The run-up to Christmas can be a feat of endurance for your liver and your wardrobe. With December's inevitable impromptu post-work drinks and team dinners, a top that says ‘I'm ready to party, but only when it’s deemed appropriate’ is key. Enter this Studio 54-esque Gucci number. With its puff sleeves, giant pussy bow and trippy zig-zag print, it has good times written all over it while also being a guaranteed conversation-starter in the boardroom (in the best possible way). Win-win!
