Set in a modern-meets-vintage lounge space evoking the golden era of Hollywood, a crystal candelabra stands alongside gold gilded furniture, ruby red florals and stacked books penned by fashion’s elite. An eclectic bouquet of hydrangea, poppies, roses and berries adds colour, texture and romance.

The gown features delicate floral applique, a low back and detachable tulle overlay – a choice inspired by one of Ms. Taylor’s many beautiful costumes. A bold lip, winged eye, glossy waves and striking garnet accessories complete this elegant look.

Changing into a dramatic two-piece gown with intricately beaded top and flowing skirt, this second look is finished with exquisite pearl jewellery – perfect for an evening reception beneath decadent chandeliers.
