Actress and model Elizabeth Hurley has certainly come a long way from the black Versace safety-pin dress that earned her iconic status in fashion history, and this is the dress to prove it! The 48-year-old beauty was the epitome of sophistication in this emerald green evening dress at the launch of her new campaign for Compare the Meerkat, showcasing an award-winning ensemble that was a far cry from her early punk-inspired outfits. Whilst we love a good LBD, we must admit that Liz’s emerald green evening gown was perfect for an event that warranted something a little different. If you fancy a change from your faithful little black dress at your next black tie event, ensure that you remain at the centre of attention like Liz by opting for an evening gown in a striking, enchanting colour. Recreate Liz’s red carpet style with our timeless Elliot Claire embellished green evening dress (£245). This fabulous gown requires equally fabulous accessories, so why not complement your evening dress with a pair of Gatsby-inspired gold earrings (£69) and a delicate gold bracelet (£79)? Just add a bejewelled clutch (£66) and a pair of black appliquéd heels (£66) for an A-lister look that is guaranteed to make others green with envy.
