Boring Party

Boring Party

If the invitation is really dread and you feel a creeping paralysis of boredom days ahead, there are only — two ways out. One is to behave so badly that you are never asked again; the other is to look so outrageously glamorous that you rivet the attention of every man in the room. Revive nostalgia for the unattainable Hollywood style, in a luscious apricot satin evening dress, correct with every Forties detail — sweetheart neckline, wedding dress, buttons, even an artificial flower on the shoulder. By Bus Stop, about 89s:6d. Rippling Rita Hayworth hairstyle by Hugh at Cheveux, W.S.

Warm and cuddly coat to brave a winter’s night. Belted and snug double-breasted fur fabric maxi-style to wear over anything except gala gear. Great with trousers. Foale and Tuffin, 18gns long or 16gns short. Long white kid boots by Anello and Davide, 12gns.

Nothing is more depressing than dolling yourself up to the nines – and putting an everyday coat over your party hear. Mink stoles are too ageing for words and short coats over long dresses look awful.
