Jennifer Aniston metallic dress, Rachel Zoe black maxi at Elle awards – and mad for lurex

The stars were out in force for the 18th annual Elle Women in Hollywood awards this week (here’s a piece I wrote about the fashion on eBay), and once I’d gotten over the absolutely knock-out look Ms. Jennifer Aniston was rocking, in a Kaufman Franco plunging metallic dress, I was getting my knickers in a twist over Rachel Zoe’s gold flecked maxi dress

Ooh I want one!

This may prove to be impossible ‘cos, unless anyone knows different, I’m 99% sure that Ms. Zoe’s full-length stunner is vintage 70s.

I’m hoping that the Topshop design team are avid readers of this blog (one can dream) as they could make the v wise decision to turn the lurex flecked black velvet mini dress into a maxi (prettiest please), which would make a v close copycat version.

In the meantime, I’m “making do” (!) with this sexy fluted sleeve dress by Twist & Tango at ASOS. Expect to see me in this li’l frock at a function near you pre-Christmas.

Twist & Tango at ASOS, £45 (sale price)

And one other thing is for sure; we’ll all be needing lurex of some description in our wardrobes before Chrimbo….
