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 free spirit, actress Kristen Stewart is an icon of our Autumn Winter 2015 Little Black Dress Collection. We admire the way in which the 25 year old stays true to herself and her own unique sense of style, her casual and androgynous day look to glittering red carpet transformations are most impressive. Kristen got her big break at 17, when she starred opposite Robert Pattinson as Bella Swan in the hugely popular Twilight franchise. Now far from her teen years, she has come out of her shell and has matured, becoming more daring with her evening outfit choices. Her hairstyle led the way in this reinvention, changing her long mane to a short punk-y chop complete with complimenting dark eye makeup.

Featuring in 34 films since 1999 and winning a BAFTA at age 19 highlights her acting ability, but it's only just scratching the surface when it comes to her talents and accolades. After featuring in numerous editorials for magazines like Vogue, Elle and W, fashion houses Chanel (Karl Lagerfeld taking a particular shine to the star) and Balenciaga spotted her individuality and youthful beauty, selecting her to become the face and muse of both their brands. This was clearly a phenomenal achievement and has helped shape her sense of style and propel her into the spotlight as a certified style icon. Kristen continuously wows at red carpet events with statement, individual gowns of varying lengths, rocking both short body cons and glamorous embellished maxi dresses.

We have modelled the style and shape of our dress from an unforgettable Reem Acra gown Kristen wore to the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. The extremely risqué deep V neckline of the crimson maxi dress almost created a wardrobe malfunction on the night, so our Kristen dress features a slightly shallower V for easy wearing, but maintains that element of sexiness. While the original dress was lined with lace inserts, we’ve upped the glamour for the winter party season with sequins. Complimenting your figure with a fitted torso and flowing maxi skirt, the Kristen Dress comes in three colours, black, midnight blue and the palest pink. Bring out your inner Kristen and keep accessories to a minimum and team with a classic red lip and smoky eye to complete this party-ready look.
