The icon behind the dress: Lily Donaldson
Introducing the Lily dress from our Little Black Dress Collection.
Inspired by icons and designed for today's fashionista, the Little Black Dress Collection fuses the LBD classic heritage together with contemporary features, modern fabrics and unexpected detailing. When designing each dress for our own-label collection, we take inspiration from the glittering moments of fashion heroes past and present and are on a constant search for those of the future.
A stunning dress inspired by a stunning woman. Lily Donaldson is yet another of Team LBD's leading ladies and as a 28 year old Victoria's Secret Angel we think you will know why. Flying the flag for British beauty, Lily has appeared on Vogue magazines covers for Britain, Italy, China and Australia. Being a VS model speaks for itself, in that she is known for her incredible toned body; which only means that whatever she is wearing, she always looks incredible.
Lily has featured in campaigns for leading fashion brands such as Dior, Dolce & Gabbana and Max Mara, as well as being the face of Burberry. Designer fashion clearly has a great love for her, so it only makes sense that we would choose her as inspiration to bring a little of such expensive taste to the high street. As a clear fan of the low cut, strappy maxi dress, we have filtered through our favourite pieces in Lily's red carpet wardrobe to bring you a boldly dramatic party piece with our Lily dress.
Most often seen wearing a skintight maxi, she knows exactly how to flatter her athletic shape and shiny gold locks. It's a bonus that she is a major fan of a classic LBD! Looking for something which is ultra glam and party ready, we chose the glittering Saint Laurent gown she wore to the Cannes Film Festival 2015, so you too will make a memorable statement this AW15. With its delicate beading and low V neck, it is boldly feminine and the long maxi skirt is perfect for a winter evening soirÃƒ©e.
Our Lily dress is the ultimate showstopper, as the silver beading creates a striking pattern that will sparkle under the lights. Go for silvery, iridescent eye shadow and a dark, moody lip, along with simple black heels and a clutch for a look that Victoria wouldn't be able to keep a secret for long
