We’ve been thrilled to dress ballerina and TV judge Darcey Bussell on several occasions for this years series of the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing as well as various other TV appearances.
On week 2 of the live shows, Darcey wore a ruby red version of our bridal gown blue moon, a silk crepe gown, with godets in the skirt making a beautifully full but still streamlined silhouette. The back features a dramatic cut out shape, delicate covered buttons and our Rockefeller beading on the shoulder.
Darcey appeared on Jonathan Ross on ITV in October, wearing our black and navy floral organza cocktail dress – she looked absolutely stunning in the full skirted knee length dress, finished beautifully by a black velvet belt.
Our chartreuse silk crepe evening gown certainly gave a pop of colour to week 5 of the live shows, almost distracting us from the very dapper Aljaz Skorjanec! A simple, yet fabulous evening gown, with a lightly ruched waistband, cross over neckline and gently flared skirt. This gown is a version of our bridal gown Eternal Flame.
The sunday results show calls for a slightly less formal gown, and Darcey chose a black organza cocktail dress with pink and blue fringed flowers, and a wide black belt.
The glamour of the blackpool ballroom called for a showstopper of a gown – we were delighted that Darcey chose Stewarts black and gold couture evening gown for the show. The deep v neckline and full skirt, as well as the stunning detail in the organza brocade fabric lent all the required drama to Darcey’s entrance into this iconic venue.
