Be a Bombshell

It’s a rare thing in life when the latest hot trend actually looks as fabulous on us mere mortals as it does on Elle, Kate et al. But with the beautiful Christina Hendricks bringing curves back onto our screens in television hit Mad Men, old Hollywood glamour made for real women with real bodies is back on the catwalk and in vogue.

Katya Wildman’s fabulous Bombshell dress is lady-like, but also pretty darn sexy. The Bombshell both embraces curves and creates them, working its magic on bodies of all ages and sizes from 8-16. If you can make it through the snow to your Christmas party, this is what you want to be wearing!

As a TV stylist Katya worked sourcing the very best vintage frocks for stars on our screens, she saw a real demand for dress that created a sex bomb look without revealing all. And so the Bombshell was born, vintage inspired and characterised by a nipped in waist, sweetheart-shaped bustline and below the knee hem. The retro silhouette works hard for its wearer, cleverly creating a bust where there isn’t one and flattering the well-endowed among us, skimming the hips, and covering the tops of your arms. Just add heels and a little sparkle with accessories, you’re there! This really is an effortlessly glamorous look.

We all need one of these covetable dresses in our wardrobes (Nigella Lawson has 12!), try one on at Chatterton's in cotton, wool jersey or luxurious silk.
