The Nora Dress

 

How to wear the http://www.kirsty-doyle.com/products/ready-to-wear/nora-dress 

Today’s top SALE pick is the cherry red Nora Dress. The fitted backless bodice with soft circular ruffle and delicate straps is a perfect cocktail dress for a summer wedding. But fear not here’s our styling tips!

A sleek up-do will let the dress do the talking and allow you to wear some Elizabeth Taylor-esque jewels. We have chosen these Erickson Beamon earrings in cherry red with hints of fuschia, lemon and blue. Keep your make-up simple and focus on contouring the eyes and cheekbones.

We like the rest of the world love Nicholas Kirkwood’s heels, we decided that if you are to invest in a pair of SS13 heels to take you through to next season, these Nicholas Kirkwood for Pollini metallic wedges are just the pair! It would be silly to splurge on a sandal so these pointed full shoes are just the ticket!

Have you seen the lovely Jessica in a LD bustier dress custom made in a beautiful blush colour. The gorgeous Jess wore her KD bespoke  to compete in a contest.

Here she is showing us two different ways to style the dress. Keeping it simple with her hair piled up, with minimal make-up and clashing red nails. On the other end of the scale, she shows us ultimate glam, with soft curled hair, smokey eyes and gorgeous embellished necklace.

Another satisfied and stunning Kirsty Doyle customer.

KD on the red carpet: Anna Shaffer

Beauty, Fashion

Between all the preparations for the soap awards on Saturday, we were lucky enough to have a quick catch with the gorgeous Hollyoaks actress Anna Shaffer we chatted about style, beauty and getting ready for the awards.

Anna looked amazing in a bespoke nude Marianna dress. Styled with an amazing Charlotte Olympia clutch, gorgeous curled hair which was swept to the side and lashings of red lipstick. She showed us exactly how to style a Kirsty Doyle creation. The hint of leopard print from the clutch really finishes of the outfit.

How would you describe your personal style?

I think I have quite a simple but classic style. Lately i’ve been experimenting with more patterns and prints, especially as we move into summer.
It’s so important to have fun with fashion too, I think the older I get the less I care about what other people think and I’m much more willing to give new
things a try…even if they end up a bit of a disaster!

What are your style inspirations and influences?

I love Mad Men. If I could dress like Joan every day I absolutely would! I think the french dress fabulously too, they keep silhuettes sleek and simple and use accessories as a way of standing out. In terms of people, I take huge inspiration from Jessica Alba and Diane Kruger. They are always flawless and look effortless. Their style is timeless but they always have a modern twist which I think is really interesting. And it helps that they’re stunning too! 

Do you have any red carpet beauty tips?

Give yourself time! There is nothing worse than feeling rushed before an event as you will make rash decisions about your make up that you will totally regret later. And looking flustered and clammy on the red carpet because you had to get ready in 5 minutes is never a good look! I think a strong lip is always fabulous. Red literally goes with ANYTHING and can transform an outfit. Also less is more. If you’re having a heavy Eye go easy on the lips and vice versa….oh and check your teeth for lipstick!!! That’s definitely something I’ve learnt!

 Do you enjoy getting ready for award events?

I generally get a little stressed before events, so it’s so important to plan ahead. If I know my dress is wonderful and I know exactly how I want my make up and hair then the rest slots into place…and it’s always good to leave yourself a good hour before you need to be there so you can relax with a cheeky drink and remember to enjoy yourself!
