Set in the beautiful The Calyx in Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden was a golden hued haven for launch of the Pandora Shine collection. As I had the honour of hosting the event I wanted an outfit that echoed the theme of the day so it was truly special when I was able to wear this gold number by Bec and Bridge before it even hit stores.
I love the look of gold satin as it has such a beautiful drape and finish and has a glam touch that was perfect the occasion. The long sleeves juxtaposed with the thigh high split is in keeping with my longstanding fashion formula of choosing one part of the body to focus on when it comes to outfits. The split was a definite showstopper feature but the sleeves helped temper it and made it work for a day event.
When it came to my accessories I wanted to keep most of the look quite tonal so I stuck to all gold jewellery. I found it added to my outfit without taking away from the beautiful dress being the centrepiece. Simplicity is always key when working with such a statement dress so I thought my black Alaïa heels would be the perfect choice. They added a touch of colour without being too over the top. And I’ve always found that black and gold is a winning colour pairing and dialled up the glamour of my look in a subtle, yet striking way.
