Even prior to the royal seal of approval from Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Jenny Packham has always been the go-to designer for glamorous gowns.
Her Spring 2013 collection on a colour palette of mostly dove grey, yellow and orange was her most bedazzling yet.
Inspired by the Las Vegas high rollers, Hollywood actors and free-spending gamblers of the 60s the designer focused on every type of embellishment from crystals to sequins and oversized paillettes.
They adorned mini dresses, maxi dresses and the red-carpet-ready glamorous gowns.
It wasn’t all about the bling. A few looks (five out of forty two) took to the runway sans embellishments.
I love the ink-splash dresses and the simple draped dresses which I can see snapped up by the Duchess.
PVC clutches also got the bedazzled treatment with shimmery Christian Louboutin heels, statement earrings and jewelled necklaces accessorizing the looks.
