BY MALENE BIRGER (Denmark) Maxi Dress with Embellishments

Made for the spotlight, this stunner from Copenhagen collection By Malene Birger oozes understated old-school glamour and will make you look and feel like a woman with star quality.
The skirt is full enough to conceal flaws, yet the wrap-front style also offers a discreet, fleeting glimpse of an exposed thigh as you walk.
Wear with old Hollywood style jewels and heels.

Award-winning Danish designer Malene Birger creates pieces inspired by the classic styles of the ’50s and ’60s and infused with signature Scandinavian cool. By Malene Birger the label has a mega following around the globe, including celebrities, Denmark's Crown Princess Mary (aka the world's most stylish royalty), and Duchess Of Cambridge (and new mama!) Kate Middleton.

IRO (Paris) Ruched Dress

Part of the new 'French Wave' (along with Maje, Sandro, Zadig & Voltaire, among others), Iro has become incredibly popular both and France and internationally in the last few years. Clever ruching makes this Iro design supremely flattering. The abstract print diverts the eye away from any—ahem—problem areas, while the soft, very slightly stretchy silk creates a comfortable fit. Just add killer heels (or sexy flats) and you're good to go!
(RRP US$472)

Launched in 2004 by brothers Laurent and Arik Bitton, Iro’s energetic, exciting clothing are inspired by the trendy, jet-setting crowd. Iro has been one of the French fashion scene’s biggest success stories of late, currently operating stores in Paris and New York, as well as new boutiques in Marseille and Beirut. The mixture of streetwear and luxury influences has proved a recipe for success, so much so that Iro began offering menswear last year. Incidentally, Iro owes its name to the Japanese word for ‘colour’.

CARVEN (Paris) Stamp-Print Silk Dress

Founded in 1945 by Carmen de Tomasso (a.k.a. Madame Carven — soon-to-be 104 years old and still alive and stylish!), French fashion house Carven originally specialised in modern clothing for hip, young Parisienne women. With Madame Carven’s retirement (at the age of 84, no less), the brand too seemed to have gone quietly into retirement. Fortunately, the house got a second lease of life in 2009 with the appointment of game-changing designer Guillaume Henry (a Givenchy and Paul Ka alumni). Thanks to Henry’s critically-acclaimed creative direction and fresh, preppy-cool RTW creations, Carven is again riding the wave of popularity.

It is said that Carven dresses always come with a wink, so make this delightful piece—featuring the smoothest-ever silk fabric and a queenly postage stamps pattern—your go-to look for unique styling. Play to the ladylike aesthetic with a little black cardi and pointy pumps, wearing your hair up to showcase the cool collar.
(RRP US$850)

After just one season under Henry, distribution for the once nearly forgotten house of Carven grew from 70 to 180 retailers (including 10 Corso Como, Colette, Dover Street Market and Opening Ceremony). When the most influential fashion women are not only wearing it (Alexa Chung, Natalie Massenet), but telling everyone how much they love it, you’ve got to know the label is seriously happening.

Guillaume Henry's No.1 fan Alexa Chung wears her favourite Carven dress in the series opening of 24 Hour Catwalk (Lifetime, Astro Ch 709, every Wednesday 8pm).

Expanding to keep pace with rapid growth: Carven's newly opened flagship store in Omotesando, Tokyo is its biggest to date.
