I’d heard of being an ambassador for a newspaper before, and promoting club nights in the city but when I found the opportunity to do this for designer dresses, I couldn’t resist…seriously, what girl would?! Joining the GMD team as an ambassador allowed me to talk about some of my favourite things, without feeling guilty for it! Fashion, designers, beautiful dresses and special occasions to wear these stunning outfits to. Perfect!
Above are some of the dresses that we received in our Fashion night in box. The four dresses above from L-R are: Opulence England Lace Tutu Dress, Estradeur Rich Dress, Alice By Temperley Roussillon Dress, Nicole Miller Eva Dress Watermelon
As a student ambassador my role varies from handing out leaflets, to raising awareness of the company through word of mouth, social media sites, and organising events, which incorporate the GMD brand. I started my role as an ambassador in September, which was ideal timing with thousands of freshers coming to my university. I gave out flyers outside the student’s union in the first few welcome weeks, offering discount designer dresses to the girls…which, understandably, created a lot of excitement!
Creating and updating the profile for GMD Cardiff on Twitter and Facebook provides me with a fantastic opportunity to experiment with successful social media. It’s fun and easy to use as these platforms are already a part of my daily life. Finding interesting photos and cheeky slogans to share with followers is always a welcome break from university work!
One of my favourite nights so far this year has to be my girly night in with GMD dresses. I organised an evening with some close friends, we made a range of delicious cocktails and had some chocolatey nibbles before opening up our surprise box of 10 designer dresses. All the girls loved the variety we had been sent. We had a good old giggle swapping and changing around until we found a favourite, and there was no cat fighting needed with all that choice!
Last night Girl Meets Dress were tweeting LIVE from the National Television Awards! We were lucky enough to be at the O2 with all the celebs and witness their amazing evening gowns first hand. The hostess of the evening who had won a competition to be there was even wearing one of our dresses, the Carmen Marc Valvo Crepe Halter Gown. It was so exciting to watch the awards at the actual arena and we were happy to see our favourites, Paul O’Grady, Ant & Dec and The Strictly Come Dancing team win awards!
We spotted some phenomenal fashion statements as well as some fashion disasters! No one wants their dress to be see through under the lights or to flash their pants! Here at Girl Meets Dress we can help you stay away from any fashion faux pas with sensational evening dresses to hire. We have long evening dresses, open backed evening dresses and evening dresses with sleeves. It’s easy to hire evening dresses from us, making it a stress free way to sort out your dress for a special event like an awards show, ball, wedding or black tie event.
With our evening dresses you can sparkle like the stars on the red carpet at last nights awards!
Holly Willougby kept it simple in a stunning black dress. Grab her look with the Ariella Scarlett Gown - this striking black evening dress is an understated classic. The ruffled skirt adds a bit of old Hollywood glamour.
Model Amy Willerton also looked gorgeous in an emellished Jovani key hole dress. This beautiful long evening gown was encrusted with sparkly beads which definitely made Amy shine out on the night! You too, can be centre of attention in one of our Jovani evening dresses.
The Jovani Sequin Tulle Gow is a glamourous, glittering gold number sure to be a show stopper! And we also have a collection of Jovani body con dresses which have coloured encrusted beads covering the whole dress with a nude mesh body. The Jovani Multi-coloured Sequin Dress is great evening dress for a less formal occasion such as a party or girls night out.

Pleats Please – I love this dress for its functionality and versatility. It can be worn for so many occasions, and is definitely a day to night number. This beautiful silk dress oozes with femininity while the colour and pattern reflects a style statement. – This celebrity dress was worn by actress Danielle Campbell.
Pastel Power – The perfect tea party dress is a mix of feminine vintage with a soft vintage shade – this dress hits all the style notes for a tea party, wedding or graduation. I love the simple design of this dress because it allows you to play with the design in so many ways. Simply add a soft leather belt or crystal statement necklace for a fashionable finish. - Celebrity dress as worn by Kate Middleton.
3. Artistic Floral – The metallic finish on this shift dress is so eye catching and the detailing adds gorgeous structure to the design. I really love the sophistication and beauty in this dress. – Marc Jacobs dresses are always fit for celebs!

5. Tartantastic – How can you not love this dress! Not only is tartan a top trend, but the piece is by McQ Alexander McQueen. Accessorize this dress with a structured black blazer and you’ll be a true fashionista. - Celebrity dress worn by Danni Minogue.
