Ashley James, model and star of Made in Chelsea, gave weight to the claim that blondes really do have more fun at the film premiere of The Lone Ranger last weekend. The blonde beauty dazzled in a vibrant sky blue embellished maxi dress complete with delicately embellished accents, and her refreshing and youthful ensemble showed us exactly why she has proved to be such a hit on the silver screen.

Ashley’s juxtaposition of the minimal and the exotic was reminiscent of Gucci’s SS13 collection and the extravagantly embellished necklines on pure, untainted fabrics that marked the range. Plus, the splash of sky blue was a nod to the good-enough-to-eat shop of candy colours that designers have been so delightfully dipping into this season. Team LBD approves!

Recreate Ashley's style with the Forever Unique at LittleBlackDress.co.uk embellished blue maxi dress (£250). The cut-out features, inspired by the SS13 collections for Alexander Wang and Balenciaga, punctuate the fabric with seductive notes, and the ornate embellishment guarantees your ensemble will receive a glittering reception – whether you've got a red carpet event to attend or not! Replicate Ashley's monochromatic accessories by teaming your blue maxi dress with our favourite black Lagom clutch bag (£49) and a pair of our faithful Moda in Pelle suede court shoes (£59.95).
