It started of with Versace Spring Summer 12 fashion show – tightly fitted gold studded dresses paraded up and down the catwalk. And when Donatella emerged at the end of the show wearing one of those herself fashion world knew this would be a new must have. The first to be caught up in the spread of the micro trend were celebrities – Katy Perry and Nicole Kidman showed off their sex appeal in white creations. But Versace influence on the trend was not over: when collaborating with H&M a much more affordable range of studded figure hugging items emerged and even more people signed up to the trend.
And now those that did not get their hands on Versace or Versace for H&M studded pieces have been given another chance: River Island created a more affordable range of dresses inspired by original Versace designs. I’m in!

I absolutely adore Zuhair Murad creations. And so do a lot of celebrities. Above Miley Cyrus chose it for Oscars, Blake Lively was wearing it on set of Gossip Girl and Katy Perry (a big fan who has been seen in Zuhair Murad on numerous occasions) for Vanity Fair Party.
So if you want to make your celebration this winter very special, it is an obvious go to designer – you would sparkle and shine and for sure feel like an A-lister. Of course this does not come cheap – dresses start from £3500. So yes, for most of us those dresses will be unattainable, but hey, it doesn’t mean we can’t dream (or use them as inspiration for finding similar styles at more affordable prices).
The three dresses above are from Zuhair Murad range available at Harrods:
1. Angel Lace Gown, £5650
2. Beaded Shift Dress, £4025
3. Velvet Sequin Dress, £4125
Velvet, lace, beads and sequin are the top features of Zuhair Murad dresses this season – are they in your holiday wardrobe?
