As school, college and uni days come to an end its all about the prom, summer ball or school dance, basically the most formal event you will have pre marriage.

Its all tears and tantrums over finding the perfect dress to wear let alone the nights you stay up praying that you’ll have a date. Just like Cinderella it is crucial you find the perfect shoe to match your princess gown, whether it be some glittery Les Ballet flats, Barbie style pink On Tops stilettos or a pair of classic strappy Jeopardy heels.

Its true that American’s do it better, with our teenage years filled with the prom ideals from Grease, Pretty in Pink and Never Been Kissed. But saying that the British girls and guys have been turning it out in recent years, hiring the obligatory limo, receiving a corsage and making sure every detail is perfect.

Survival tips for prom:

If you are met with the nightmare of another girl in the same dress, style it out! Ask for a picture together and make it funny, do not cry and get angry in the privacy of a bathroom!

Avoid red drinks

Never take your heels off…..ever!!

Windsor Castle Charity Dinner

Wednesday, May 14th, 2014

It is his wife the Duchess of Cambridge who is a keen follower of fashion, but last night Prince William found himself surrounded by some of the most stylish names around as he hosted a gala dinner to celebrate the work of The Royal Marsden Hospital, of which he is president.

The event, was sponsored by fashion royalty Ralph Lauren who is funding a new breast cancer centre at the hospital. It saw stars of the stage, screen and catwalk gathering to enjoy a lavish three-course dinner in the grand St George’s Hall.

With the event being held in such a spectacular venue, it was only fitting that the attendees, who included Benedict Cumberbatch, Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Moss, Cate Blanchett and Emma Watson, pulled out all the stops with their outfits.

We take a look at some of the best dressed from the night.

 

Cate Blanchett

Hollywood actress Cate was one of the many guests modelling a Ralph Lauren design and she looked the epitome of elegance in an ivory, asymmetric evening gown. The simplicity of the gown was offset by a pair of statement chandelier earrings, also from Ralph Lauren, while a slick of red lipstick finished off the look.

 

Jessica Michibata

Jessica’s stunning red gown certainly ensured she stood out from the crowd, with many of the other guests sticking to more muted colour palettes. The dramatic strapless dress featured an embellished bodice and a flowing hemline.

 

Emma Watson

Emma Watson’s ensemble seems to have divided fashion critics, but we are huge fans of the sophisticated outfit, which ensured Emma looked a far cry from schoolgirl wizard Hermione Granger. The crisp white shirt paired with an artfully draped floor-length grey skirt was classic Ralph Lauren at his finest.

 

Kate Moss

Kate rarely puts a fashion foot wrong because she sticks to what she knows best and this occasion saw her reaching into her bulging closet for a classic black dress. However, the model showed black doesn’t have to be boring, thanks to the daring thigh-high split and sheer detailing on the dress.

 

Helena Bonham Carter

Helena Bonham Carter is a repeat offender on worst dressed lists thanks to her eccentric style, but on this occasion she was definitely one of the best dressed. Her strapless navy Ralph Lauren number was elegant, but the cascading skirt of ruffles and mish-mash of materials added intrigue.
