The £35 must-have dress
When you think of red carpet glamour, bargain high street store Peacocks might not be the first place that springs to mind. However, thanks to Pearl Lowe and a handful of fashion’s most influential movers and shakers, celebrities across the country have been hammering at the doors of the retailer for one particular dress.
The item in question is a £35 black pleated polyster dress with cream lace collar. Designed by Pearl Lowe for Peacocks, the dress was snapped up by several of the UK’s leading fashion editors and worn at London and New York fashion weeks, sparking a sudden celebrity fanclub which includes Courtney Love, Sharlene Spiteri, Natalie Imbruglia and Holly Willoughby, writes the Daily Mail.
The dress, which sold out online in two hours, has an elegant vintage feel to it. Pearl Lowe told the Daily Mail: 'I looked to great women of the past for inspiration. I’ve always adored the classic style of Hollywood legends, in particular Louise Brooks and Greta Garbo, and wanted to create a collection that captured their magic and femininity. I’m so excited to be bringing timeless Hollywood style back to the High Street.’
There is now a waiting list so if you fancy getting hold of the bargainous LBD yourself, you'd better act quick!
