4. Vivienne Westwood Gold Label Opuntia Metallic Corset Dress

This is the perfect dress for the figure shy, as it hides a secret corset which flattens the stomach, and boosts the bust! Wear with wide, gold shoes and a gold clutch for a very glamorous look, and find a simple, delicate necklace to draw attention to your neckline.

5. Chloe Draped Velvet Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $3000 at net-a-porter.com
This is another vintage style dress, which features heavy shaping to create an extreme silhouette. The velvet material nips in the waist while accentuating the hips and shoulders, and the geometric slanting on the bottom of the dress is to die for! Swap the rope belt for a black ribbon, and team with strappy black heels and a scruffy chignon for the ultimate in 80's styling.

7. Temperley London Shola Silk Zebra Print Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $900 at net-a-porter.com
Looking for an exotic update to evening glam? The neckline is flattering, and the length is just right, but its the print that really kicks off the dress!

8. Victoria Beckham Briseux Silk Mini Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $1800 at net-a-porter.com
Victoria Beckham has released a stunning range, and this dress is the centre piece. The plummy purple colour attracts attention, while the panelling keeps it looking smart and you looking slim! The bottom of the dress is my favourite, though, as the bell shaping is very flattering and very rare! It makes walking really easy, and puts all eyes on your legs...

9. Philosophy Di Alberta Ferretti Sequin Embellished Mesh Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $1300 at net-a-porter.com
Choose dazzling simplicity with this stunning dress, which combines the classic dress with lots of sparkle! The mesh back adds to the elegance, and when its teamed with black shoes and tights, this really is the sexiest dress ever. The ruffling is the perfect finish! Wear your hair in a scruffy bun, and grab a patent black bag to finish the look.

10. Zac Posen Asymmetric Silk Crepe Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $1600 at net-a-porter.com
I love the colouring of this dress! The vivid pink really sets of skin, and it has such an amazing fit. The one shoulder styling adds class to a tight fighting, very flattering dress, and worn with dainty shoes and a glitzy handbag, this is the perfect girly dress for any occasion.

11. Nathan Jenden Wool Coat Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $1800 at net-a-porter.com
Looking for something a little different? This Jenden dress steals its styling from the classic trench coat, turning it into a well fitted, sexy dress thats perfect for the fashion forward. Team with big wedge heels and a big bag, and a glitzy feminine necklace for a feminine twist.

12. Stella McCartney Silk Slip Dress

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Price: $1300 at net-a-porter.com
This is very lingerie inspired, but looks incredible on! The lacey bottom is very sexy, and the neckline is flattering and draws attention to the bust and neckline. Choose a delicate, silver necklace, and matching earrings for optimum effect. Team with a leather jacket if you are bold, or a suit jacket and white shoes. It takes confidence, but this is so stunning, it really paid off!
