Like all award ceremonies, the Cosmopolitan Ultimate Women Awards 2012 this week turned into a fash-off for the A-list. And in amongst all the floor-length evening dresses and flesh-flashing minis was this little gem, Gizzi Erskine, TV chef and 60s stylista, who stood out in her stunning black embellished dress. The small screen star stole the show in this black mini dress which featured a black round neck and hemline with bold gold sequin embellishment. Gizzi teamed the sleeveless shift dress with black leggings (well it is winter!) and patent black leather heels and of course finished off the ensemble with her signature beehive and a hair-bow for a chic Lady Gaga-inspired look. To get the chic and playful look of Team LBD’s favourite Cosmo award attendee opt for a high neck black dress with metallic embellishment and keep accessories minimalist for a chic retro feel:
