INSIDER TRACK….The Perfect Dress Blogger Event- Amsterdam Pc Hooftstraat

This month we hosted The Perfect Dress bloggers event in our Amsterdam flagship store on the glamorous PC hooftstraat. To celebrate the start of the party season and our covetable range of dresses we invited 16 leading Dutch fashion bloggers to the store after hours to choose their Perfect Dress and style it in their very own way.

Each blogger chose their Perfect Dress from the latest AW12 collection including our Baroque mesh dress, Limited edition sequin dress, Draped sequin dress and Metallic sequin dress and the results are available to see below from bloggers Lucy De Boer, Tess Van Daelen, Jasmijn Engering, Chloe Sterk and Janine Breukhoven wearing their looks.

INSIDER TRACK….The Perfect Dress Events

Karen Millen is THE destination on the high street for the perfect dress and this party season we have hosted a series of events around the world designed to help you find yours that were hosted by leading fashion bloggers who were on hand with styling tips at our Regent Street and Soho NY stores.

Kelly from The Glamourai hosted our New York event with the incredible Tali Lennox, who stars in our Autumn Winter 12 Campaign, seen here wearing our Baroque Mesh Dress and styled in her own inimitable way with our limited edition over the knee suede boots which perfectly off-set the decorative baroque of this stand-out piece.

Whether for on or off-duty, there is the perfect dress for you at Karen Millen.  Kelly from The Glamourai selected our Zig Zag mesh sleeve dress as hers, this modern take on the cocktail dress with its ruffled skirts and sheer sleeves looks feminine yet distinctive when teamed with simple statement platform courts.

Naomi from The Fash Pack hosted our Regent Street, London, event last night and also selected our Baroque Mesh Dress as her perfect dress.  One of our favourite titles, Grazia, featured it on their fashion pages so this is clearly one to get before it goes!

 The Karen Millen dress is one of the essential components of a modern wardrobe and each one is designed to become your cherished staple.

We have a wonderful range of dramatic dresses that hint at a subtle sexiness with full ruffle skirts, flirty fluid peplum detailing, structured bodices and peek-a-boo lace. Winter’s rich opulence shines through with glittering baroque flourishes and shimmering hot metals.  From ornate cocktail dresses sprinkled with sequins and embellished with oversized jewels to more subtle metallic baroque this is season is all about controlled excess.  Enjoy!

HOT OFF THE PRESS….Statement Check Coat

This season if you are planning to invest in a forever coat then take a look at our beautiful statement check coat.  Perfectly tailored and crafted from a luxurious Italian fabric in a bold monochrome check print and edged in soft faux leather, this piece looks ultra-modern when teamed with pared-down tailoring in pops of bright colour, as seen in our campaign starring Tali Lennox.

Our favourite magazines have featured our statement check coat in editorial this season including Vogue, YOU magazine and Cosmopolitan, highlighting this piece as a must-have for your winter wardrobe.


“The ultimate investment piece this season has to be a coat.  We put an incredible amount of love into our coats and I am always inspired by the luxurious coating fabrics we use to craft them from.  One of my absolute favourites this season is our check coat, it is really modern and slightly sporty, this a piece that really stands out.” – Gemma Metheringham, Managing and Creative Director of Karen Millen.
