a blurb where you are freaking out about going to an award show because you are feeling insecure about a dress you are wearing that is showing your scar on your back from spinal fusion surgery and Niall tries to calm you down? please :)
“No. Forget it. I’m not going.” Fumbling with the zipper at the side of the strapless column gown you started to shuffle back towards your room. Niall’s head shot up from where he was hunched over the ottoman, tying his black dress shoes. His eyes were blown wide with surprise and a tinge of panic. “Wha? Wait, baby, wait! Come back here, what’s the matter?!” You could hear Niall’s footsteps falling heavy as he strode down the hall after you.
Disney’s ultimate villain Maleficent has finally hit cinemas, and it seems that lead actress Angelina Jolie can’t get enough of her character’s gothic glamour. For the world premiere of the film in Hollywood, Angelina turned to one of her favourite designer labels Atelier Versace for a gorgeous, custom-made gown that just screamed, Maleficent.
Angelina went for a dramatic, statement strapless black column gown composed of rubberised silk, which gathered at the waist into a sweeping train, a look made an evil fairy. I just love how captivating the dress looked, much like her characters cheekbones, I couldn’t take my eye off this intriguing dress that was perfect for the world premiere.
If the gown wasn’t beautiful enough, the styling took this look to a whole new level, pairing the rubberised dress with dangerous-looking jewellery including a single spiked earring and spiked cuffs. This went perfectly with her simple, pulled-back ponytail and smoky eyes.

Left Column: Dressing Gowns that were built for the actress.
Sierra’s new one for the 25th on Broadway, the one we made Sara Jean Ford for her Broadway run, Elizabeth Loyacano’s new one for Vegas, Trista Moldovan’s on Broadway (I know she got a new one for the tour because she was so much taller than everything they had in stock, so this is probably that same one)
Right Column: “Hand-me-down” Dressing Gowns
Can we just talk about how GOOD the Dressing Gown looks when it’s a brand new custom-made for the actress piece? I mean just on top of the fact that it looks so fluffy and new (which inevitably can only last so long), the precision tailor around that angel chestplate makes me want to kiss my fingertips like an Italian chef that’s how UNF it is.
Also notice the delicate puff of the bodice going into the waistband, it tends to really droops in the older ones. Or in the case of Sam Hill's… decide it has nothing left to live for.
But older Dressing Gowns tend to really start to gape in the front, showing more of the red and green panels since the bodice of the gown is cut on bias and the nature of bias finished with bias tape is that it stretches.
So that’s half the reason it’s annoying when a new Christine gets an old gown, considering it’s probably two, three grand tops compared to the rest of her costumes and a new one makes ALL the difference.
This isn’t to say that all old Dressing Gowns look horrible on new wearers, I mean Jennifer Hope Wills in her earlier run got hers from Sandra Joseph and to this DAY, the way it looks on her is like the Dressing Gown silhouette of my dreams.

Lupita Nyong'o continued her winning fashion streak at the 2014 SAG Awards, and showed off a stunning Gucci column gown. The gorgeous dress featured floral embroidered gold and turquoise straps, and was complimented with Fred Leighton jewels.
The ‘12 Years A Slave’ actress is surely giving all others a hard time to compete with her dazzling style statements.
