They’ve done it again, designed a knock out dress that is, which all the celebrities are clamouring for. The ‘Golden Samantha Sequin Dress’ by French Connection, priced at £165 is now a firm favourite of reality TV stars and soap actresses in the UK and as such is set to sell out online and in stores across the country.
The dress, which is described as having a V-neck with wrap-over detail, short sleeves and an exposed zip at back, is a sparkly must for premieres, parties and a night out clubbing and has been seen on many an occasion in recent weeks.
Brooke Vincent, who stars in Coronation Street, was first spotted in the dress when she partied at her 19th birthday at the famous restaurant Rosso, owned by Rio Ferdinand in Manchester last month. She told Now Magazine that “The high street seems to be very bright and bold at the moment but I wanted something to feel more birthday and a bit more special. I love that I can get it out again for when the Christmas parties come around.”
Gabriella Ellis, 23, the Made In Chelsea star, wore her Golden Samantha Sequin Dress at the London premiere of the Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts film Larry Crowne. She revealed that “I wore it because I wanted to stand out and sparkle down the red carpet. It’s always great to make a big entrance and it’s a great dress for that.”
Days later it was seen again on The Only Way is Essex star Chloe Sims, 24, who wore the dress out at London’s Zilli Fish restaurant to celebrate co-star Amy Child’s 21st birthday. She was pleased she had got her fashion choice and commented “The dress of the season? I’m glad I’ve got it right for a change! Amy and I aren’t in competition with each other, so it didn’t occur to me that I’d outdo her.”
