I don't know about you but no matter how many years go by I still love to feel like a princess every now and again. Hayley Hasselhoff has to be one of the most beautiful women alive. I've been fortunate to meet her a couple of times now and she's a really lovely lady too on top of her awesome modelling talent which I'm lucky to have witnessed first hand when I assisted with her shoot for Yours Clothing a few years ago. She's also always been a style icon of mine and so when she started doing collections with ELVI I was ecstatic. I've adored all of the pieces so far and I love that in the latest collection there's even more sparkle and beautiful occasion pieces.

This Nude Pleated Gown (£85.00*) from the collected is a perfect example of her signature dramatic style with its column like length and train but is given a softer edge by the super soft crumpled pleats, relaxed bodice style and the delicate peachy nude shade to the semi sheer fabric. I actually had a size smaller than I usually would in this style so that it fit my upper body better and as you can see it still looks perfect over my tummy and hips, the area that would usually look tighter if I did this - hooray for pleats and generously cut fabric! 

I can't think of something more comfortable for a Summer wedding to be honest, you'll definitely keep cool in this beautiful dress and to me it looks like a contemporary version of the sort of gown one of the Bronte sisters would have worn, hence why we shot it at a stately home near my house in beautiful Leicestershire! What do you think of this classically elegant style?
