For most of us the pricetags of high end designer fashion mean even a look at couture is best avoided, but on a few very special occasions there's just no resisting a peek. This Strapless Silk Dress from Dolce & Gabbana is a stunning item that might just be worthy of going out of your way to get your mitts on.
The style takes clear inspiration from fifties prom dresses, but the cut, fabrics and design are a cut above high street looks with the same idea. The full skirt and high waist create an exaggerated femininity, tying in with a sweetheart neckline to achieve the ideal silhouette. In a sumptuous silk, the floral design is irresistibly classic too.
It's available from Matches Fashion in the UK for a staggering price of £3185.
