It’s not very often that I go a little big gaga over a celebrity fashion range – too many play is safe and fail to enthuse the clothes with the celebrities character.
The Jameela Jamil range from Simply Be does not fall into this category! In fact, I don’t think there is a single item in the range that I wouldn’t snap up if money allowed.
Unfortunately, I can only afford one – and it had to be the Ponte Midi Dress.
The dress makes me feel like a cross between Betty Page & Grace Kelly; it oozes sophisticated, lady-like elegance with a slight gothic vampiric feel.
The Simply Be website describes it as Victorian Gothic and I suppose this is a little true with the sheer spotted fabric sleeves and neckline but the full swishing skirt feels a little more 50s.
Midi length has always been a favourite of mine as I think it looks very graceful when paired with nude legs and a pair of high heels. I suppose I’m lucky as at 5ft10, Midi tends to sit just perfectly on my mid-calves.
The full skirt really does swish and sway as you walk – makes me want to pull some flamenco moves – and the full shape paired with a nipped in waist makes for a perfect hourglass!
The sheer neckline and sleeves are demure with a nod to the sensual and incredibly flattering for a larger bust.
I feel the dress deserves red lipstick and heels – I mean, you need a special dress to wear with those red L. K. Bennett hooves!
