Two weeks to go until the much-awaited for Phllippine Tatler Ball! Ladies, you should be well on your way to getting your gown choices whittled down and finalised. But if you are in need of a little extra help, take a look at what we think are the best on trend, and spot-on looks!
From something classic, timeless, bold, muted, strapless or conservative—here's a selection of designer creations that are sure to inspire you:
This ornate Marchesa silk-satin gown in an understated teal colour makes for a grand entrance. The luxe silk fabric is intricately embellished with crystals and beads. Wear your hair in a low bun or loose curls and go for that ethereal vibe.
A showstopping red is fitting for a Giambattista Valli gown. This whisper-weight silk-chiffon gown is a practical choice for a night of dancing and sashaying down the red carpet. A pair of sky high strappy stilettos is the best accessory for this look.
You can never go wrong with an elegant black dress. Giorgio Armani's version of this timeless style is keeping with the trend in an off-the-shoulder neckline accented with Japanese landscape print. Choose an evening bag with an oriental theme to match.
Feel every bit like a princess in Marchesa Notte's pink tulle gown with lace details. Add feminine touches in your accessories and wear your hair up to show off every detail of this dress from front to back.
Roland Mouret's contemporary wool-crepe gown is a top pick for the chic minimalists. With its clean lines and sexy cutouts, this look demands attention. Go sleek and edgy by choosing accessories in metallic hues, or do a monochromatic look and phase out in all white.
Here's a refreshingly youthful version of a glam evening look. Keeping with the clean lines and contemporary style, this dusty-blue Jenny Packham dress with intricate beadwork is sculpted to show off a svelte figure. Pair this dress with an elegant updo.
If you're the kind of gal who's not afraid to take fashion risks, then this number is for you. Monse's relaxed draping in bold colours of blush and papaya satin is not for the fainthearted. Turn this look into a sartorial success with the right attitude and the right accessories.
FUN AND FLIRTY
This Solace London's saffron crepe de chine 'Serafine' gown is sure to make you stand out from the crowd. The dramatic layers of pleated chiffon is contrasted by a structured bodice and high neckline, making this dress both playful and elegant. This solid colour makes for a perfect canvas to play with bright and trendy accessories.
