The internet as much as the high street, is filled with party dresses for the festive season ahead.

Velvet LBD’s, chiffon and taffeta, sequins and red shades, gold, silver and all things merry, are just some of our choices for a memorable night out.

But for me, the best place for inspiration is and always will be, the silver screen.

Check out some of the most memorable and famous movie dresses and draw inspiration!
