Jenny Packham Spring 2013

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.

Front Row: Minka Kelly, Lauren Conrad, Jordana Brewster

Favourites: Gold sleeveless gown and ink-print peplum cocktail dress

Who I See Wearing This Collection: Christina Ricci, Angelina Jolie, Nina Dobrev, Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Dita von Teese, Carrie Underwood, Mandy Moore, Taylor Swift, Kerry Washington, Elisabeth Moss, Reese Witherspoon, Cat Deeley, Eva Mendes, Anne Hathaway and Blake Lively

    I know this is completely off-topic, but it has bugged me for years now and I need to get it off my chest: I honestly can not get used to the idea that Jenny Packham isn’t some $5 Walmart brand, because I honestly can not remember a more cheap sounding brand.
    There, I’ve said it and I apologize to any girl named Jenny out there!
