Featured Blogger: Marina Tilahun’s Top 5 Cocktail Dresses

SONY DSC

Marina Tilahun from Marina Hearts is a freelance photographer who has done work experience with magazines like OK. After meeting various celebrities and attending fashion events she decided to start her own blog. She picks her 5 favourite cocktail dresses from Girl Meets Dress to help you prepare for any upcoming parties or girls night out.

 1. A navy halter neck dress from Lili London. I love this dress as its cute and sexy, the colour is fab and of course the price is just jaw dropping. It would definitely be my alternative to an LBD if I didn’t want to wear black.

2. The Folly red dress from TFNC. We all need that perfect red dress in our lives and this is it. This is sure to turn heads as its figure hugging and super sexy. This dress has left me speechless and I’m sure that you too will be leaving other speechless when you turn up in this little number.

3. A stunning maxi dress from Dark Pink. This really caught my eye as it’s simple and elegant but not in a boring way that some dresses tend to come across as, because this dress features a lace halter neck and slit on the side of the dress to add that bit of sexy back in.

4. An effortless flawless dress from Elise Ryan. The next thing that caught my eye was this red sleeveless dress as it’s absolutely gorgeous, and this colour will work so well for so many skin tones. Now we all know that every cocktail dress needs to have that pop of glam and this dress certainly ticks that box as it features a rounded neckline of decorative stones.

5. Gorgeous couture really is gorgeous (excuse the Dad joke) I had to include this Bailey dress in my top 5 as this shade of pink is to die for. It’s loved by celebrities and fashion editors, and can be loved by you too in this specific design or in the best-selling maxi dress design.

Amie Gee is a student at Manchester Metropolitan University studying International Fashion Marketing. She currently runs Fashion Is Our Religion which focuses on fashion trends, new collections, styling as well as beauty and events. Here Amie talks us through her top 5 cocktail dresses to hire online.

1. Alice and Olivia Nala Knit Dress – £29
This cocktail dress from Alice and Olivia is the perfect little number for the upcoming party season; it just wouldn’t be complete without glitz and glamour! I adore the shimmery pale gold sequins, which make it ideal to wear for after hours cocktail events or at Christmas parties. This cocktail dress with it’s high neck and long sleeves is understated but sexy at the same time with cut out mesh detailing on the back; a classy way of showing off some skin. Just team with simple black ankle boots and accessories for a sultry yet edgy look.

2. By Malene Birger Isalena Sequinned Dress – £59

This collection of cocktail dresses wouldn’t be complete without a little black dress or two! The first is a classic shift dress from By Malene Birger. Another sparkly number that caught my eye, but with much simpler styling with embellished sleeves and a strip of embellishment down the front; the delicate hint of sparkle just makes the dress stand out of the crowd from your standard LBDs. With full length sleeves, keyhole fastening and a mini flared hemline, this is a chic and flattering cocktail dress that will look perfect with metallic high heels and matching accessories.

3. Nicole Miller Eva Lace Dress – £49

Underwear as outerwear has been one of the biggest trends and has graced numerous catwalks this year. Nicole Miller has encapsulated this trend into one dress and I have fallen completely in love with it. This cocktail dress is adorned in beautiful black lace detailing with scalloped edges that compliments the nude fabric underneath. This cocktail dress looks like it has sauntered straight out of the boudoir and oozes sex appeal and romanticism. Pair with some sky high leather ankle boots and jacket to punk up this outfit for this season’s latest pretty/tough trend.

4. Versace Jeans Jenna Dress – £79

Versace is quintessentially known for its bold prints and extravagant embellishments, more is always more! Versace doesn’t disappoint with this stand-out LBD. The gold embellishment is reminiscent of Gatsby’s 1920’s which pairs nicely with Versace’s ethos of opulence and glamour. Wear with simple accessories and barely there heels as this cocktail dress makes the statement all by itself.

5. Diane Von Furstenberg Dress With Draping – £59

Last but not least is this sophisticated Diane Von Furstenberg dress. This is the perfect versatile piece that can be worn from day to night. With draping in all the right places this cocktail dress will skim over all your curves and makes it the ideal dress for any body shape. In a luxurious raspberry colour, this ultra feminine yet simplistic dress will be a hit at the office as well as after hours, If you have no time to head back home before an event, this is the ideal cocktail dress for you; just bring a change of dressier accessories, a statement lipstick and you are ready to go!

1) Helmut Lang Sheer Hemline Dress – £59

As a huge fan of the current ‘slip’ trend, this cocktail dress ticks all of the boxes for me! It gives the effect of being a slip but gives you a little dignity in keeping things under wraps. I think it’s very Carrie Bradshaw – and we all want to look like her, right?!

2) Marc by Marc Jacobs Etta Satin Dress – £79

Cobalt blue is such a striking colour (and a huge trend of AW13) and so it’s sure to make you stand out at any cocktail party which is why I think that it’s a must.

3) Closer Canyon Ballerina Neoprene Dress – £39

The longer sleeves and flared skirt on this beautiful cocktail dress makes it very flattering and perfect for a multitude of occasions.

4) Christopher Kane Tulle Sheath Dress – £179

The mixture of tulle and velvet in this cocktail dress are a recipe for perfection and certainly ensure you being the belle of the ball. What I also love about this is the length, which makes a rather edgy outfit extremely glamorous.

5) Burberry London Milly Draped Dress – £59

You can’t go far wrong in black, and this figure hugging black cocktail dress from Burberry is absolutely stunning. Teamed with simple accessorises and bold lips, you’re set to look fabulous!
