Style Notes

Black is always a safe and classic bet for a black tie event, and with Alex Perry’s exquisite tailoring you really can’t go wrong. A strapless sweetheart neckline and expertly constructed bodice works on all figures and will keep you feeling supported and fabulous into the night. Hire this dress for a timeless and classy look that will blow your red carpet competition away. 

We love to style this gorgeous gown with a stunning silver necklace and a deep red lip for a classic, glamorous look. Alternatively, pair with a simple belt to cinch the waist and accentuate your figure. For more elegant evening gowns, try our collection of floor-length gowns

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning dress!!!! I hired this dress for a work function and got so many compliments on the night. Its the perfect simple gown that you can accessorise to suit your purposes. I am a size 14, and it was mostly flatering to my figure. Fit like a glove, just wore some shape-wear underneath. The top does stick out a bit, even on a busty girl, but i definitely don't regret hiring this dress.
