Style Notes

This mini dress by Self Portrait features beautiful placement lace all over with a Victorian-inspired neckline. It is partially lined to allow the lace to contrast strikingly against the skin and the body con silhouette is offset by a tiered skirt. Alluring and modern, this is not your typical little black dress. As seen on Jennifer Lopez, Lucy Liu and Jourdan Dunn. Rent this for your next cocktail or evening event and you’ll be sure to turn heads!

  • Placement lace all over
  • Victorian-inspired neckline and tiered skirt
  • Partially lined

This body con style looks great on straight body shapes and the tiered skirt adds flare. Complete this look with flats for a more relaxed event or dress it up with a pair of black heels. Hire an elegant little clutch to hold your beauty essentials and pair with simple jewellery to let the statement lace shine. Read our date night style guide for more outfit inspiration.

Tiered Guipure Lace Mini Dress - Black is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun dress for my 30th birthday I rented this dress for my 30th birthday party (first hire) and it was amazing! After reading the previous reviews I went up a size which fit me perfectly - I usually wear an 8 however ordered 10 in this dress. The quality of the dress was amazing and service was incredible including packaging and return information. Will definitely be hiring again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Too short Loved this dress but it is extremely, extremely short. The lace overlay is long enough but the black slip underneath only JUST covered my butt (I'm 169cm). If I leaned even slightly forward you'd see everything. So I didn't wear it and wore my backup dress instead which was just divine anyway. The sizes run small so although normally an 8, I got the 10 which fit well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome dress Rented this dress for my husband's 40th birthday. After reading other reviews I ordered the next size up & it fit perfectly. I'm 5'9 so it was a little on the short side but wearing bike pants helped to not flash anyone. I was sad to send it back :( Maybe an option to buy could be offered?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elegant Mother's Day Lunch Dress I chose this dress last minute for a Mother's Day lunch event at a beautiful winery and I am so glad I did. I was greeted by the host with Instantly a wonderful compliment. Afterwards we had some professional family photo's taken. I was in love with this dress! Once again Glam Corner and their impeccable service did it again! Note: Generally I am a size 8 but this is a small fit so I suggest you go up a size. This is a size 10 and fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for a Wedding! I rented this the other weekend and absolutely loved it and I got so many compliments. I'm usually a 6 but wore the 8 and it fit really well. Any tighter and it would have been a bit uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for a wedding guest I rented this the other weekend for a wedding! I was a little worried at first when I tried it on as it felt quite short but no one noticed. The dress is stunning and so flattering. I went a size larger than normal and it fit perfect

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress for my best friends 21st birthday! I rented this dress last minute and it came the very next day! You cannot fault the service and the dress came in perfect condition. Due to the dress being so expensive to buy outright it was ideal that I was able to hire it and did not have to spend a fortune. I highly recommend this service for those wanting to wear a statement piece once and once only. Thanks Glam Corner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Wedding guest dress... This dress is perfect for Wedding guest stunning! It is short but because of the extra lace it seems to give it that extra length and elegance. Came beautifuly packaged with tags looked brand new....very impressed with fast postage! This is my first rental as friends have recommended me...perfect as how often do we buy a dress like this and wear it once or twice? Great concern was the quality as i have been told there are some poorer quality hire places out there so be careful. Im usually a 10 to 12 opted for larger size as recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress for hitting the town I rented this dress as a back up however wore it out to dinner and club. Trendy dress that is extremely comfortable. I have hired the crimson red dress for my 18th also. Great fit and looks great on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing dress I hired this dress for a wedding last month & received so many compliments! It's a small make so I wore a size 10 when I'm usually a size 8. Only advice I'd give is to take your measurements & compare!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely loved this dress! I rented this dress last weekend for a wedding. Absolutely LOVED it! It is exactly as pictured and all the other reviews are spot on. Size wise - I think the smallest part of the dress is the waist. I usually struggle to find dresses that fit as i am so petite. I opted for the size 8, based on other reviews and was happy with the size 8. I probably would have fitted in the size 6, but it would have been on the tight side on the waist. You will feel fantastic wearing this dress - it is stunning!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun (winter) cocktail party dress! I hired this dress for a cocktail party with my partners colleagues. It was a cold night so the lace sleeves were absolutely appreciated! The dress is beautiful and in great fits slightly smaller than usual so if you are between sizes order the larger size to be sure... I was pleased I did! I should also mention the dress is pretty short - I'm not super tall (166cm) and I was standing all night so no problem for me! All in all I loved this dress and would definitely wear again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Birthday Dress! I rented this dress for my birthday and it was absolutely gorgeous. The dress arrived early and the process was so easy! I'm usually a size 8 but after reading other reviews decided to order the 10 as a back up size and luckily I did because the 8 was way too small for me. I'm about 5"10 and the dress was very short but I put some black mini exercise shorts underneath so I didn't have to worry about flashing anyone! The dress looked amazing and I got compliments the whole night!!! Would 100% recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sexy and flirty I wore this dress to my cousins wedding and everyone loved it. It has a cute vibe with some sex appeal, the detailing is absolutely stunning. Im between a size 10 and an 8, I got both with the $30 back up dress option, luckily I did because it's a small fit, and the size 10 was great. It's abit short, so if you're not until a whole lot of leg then this isn't the dress for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Birthday drinks/dinner dress First time user of Glam Corner and it was great! So glad I got this dress as I got lots of comments about how great it looked. Was a perfect fit according to measurements. I border on a size 10-12 and glad I got a 12. The dress is short, I am 157cms and it was quite short on me so word of caution there if you are tall! Definitely will use GlamCorner again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Black themed engagement party I could not recommend these guys enough. The dress arrived earlier than expected for starters....lucky because I needed a bigger size and the ladies at glam corner were amazing and sent out another dress straight away! thank you x

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect birthday dress! Hired this dress for my nineteen birthday and it was absolutely perfect! I needed a dress that would be suitable for dinner and going out with friends after and this dress was just that. It was both fun and classy would definitely hire again but would go down a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great dress Hi I hired this dress for a black tie event a few weeks ago. I didn't want to wear a gown, and this dress was sufficiently dressy enough for the event. I was a bit nervous as I had never hired before (and was concerned the dress may look "worn" as it was lace), but I was pleasantly surprised. The dress was in perfect condition - it looked brand new. I am strictly a size 6-8 but ordered both sizes 8 and 10 (the "backup dress option") on Glam Corner's recommendation, and was glad that I did. I ended up wearing the size 10 - the size 8 was very small around the bust and back (and I am quite tiny). I also ordered the black over sized Olga Berg pod clutch - it went perfectly with the dress. I received lots of compliments and the dress was extremely comfortable to wear! It's fully lined and can be worn with a strapless bra, so no need to fuss over fancy undergarments. Will definitely be ordering again! Service was fantastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect cocktail Great dress, the lace is high quality and in perfect condition!! If you are in-between sizes i would recommend going up a size because it is quite small and short but such a great dress.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dress for wedding celebration I hired this dress two weeks ago and could not be happier! From the initial conversations with the Glamcorner staff to receiving the dress and finally wearing it, the experience was second to none! On the night I had so many compliments and can't wait to hire my next dress! Would certainly recommend this to anyone wanting to look and feel a million bucks for the small hiring price I paid. Thank you GC team for a wonderful service and providing beautiful affordable dresses for every woman to wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Wedding guest dress! I can not explain enough how happy I am with this dress. This was a back up dress for a wedding as I unfortunately had a problem with the first dress I had ordered. But the ladies at glam corner bent over backwards for me to get a different dress delivered to me the next day so I was able to still attend the wedding in a beautiful outfit. I can not express enough how happy I am with the service and just the care that they took to find me a new dress at such short notice. The material was amazing and the quality was incredible, it came with tags attached and wrapped in tissue paper so it felt like I had actually purchased the dress and not hired it. I would recommend going up in size.I’m usually 8-10 and I got a 12. The only downside is that the dress is very, very short. I am 163cm and the black slip sat justtt under my bum so just be cautious if you are taller then that. Very happy and I will be a returning customer!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun but also exquisite dress This dress is a mixed between cute and flirty, makes it ultra-feminine. Unfortunately I didn't wear it to the event because the size I ordered was too big for me. Unlike most reviews and GC advice, I found that this dress is actually true to size, so sizing up wasn't a wise decision for me. Nonetheless, highly recommend this dress!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun dress for a night out with the girls I rented this a week ago and absolutely fell in love with the dress. I'd suggest to go up a size if you have curves because it doesn't stretch at all and perhaps not suited to those with long legs who are quite tall because the dress is quite short. I wish it was a tad longer because it's the most beautiful dress and is so lovely to wear but overall great service and fantastic quality

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dress for a day at the races This was my first time renting through Glam Corner and loved the experience. I love this dress and while it was a little bit shorter than I expected I loved the way it looked on. The size guide is correct in that it is a smaller make and so I would def. recommend going up a size if you are in between sizes. I would hire this dress again.
