Can anyone help me with a few suggestions for very glamourous dresses for a really posh night I've been invited to in London? Loads of celebs go there and will be dressed up to the nines!

So what do I wear? I'm a very short, slightly dumpy but hourglass type, long blonde hair and blue green eyes.

I love coral reds, and navy blue.

I've been looking at Lipsy dresses at Next, but don't really know where else to look!

What sort of price rage? Dress size (for sales)? Oh, and do like reds and coral or coral reds?

this with blingy jewelery and and fab hair. Depends on the dress code though. Any clues?

Sorry for being vague - size 12-14. Price up to £150 for the perfect dress. I like really vivid reds, and corals.

While I really like that dress, it's not quite red carpet style enough, I don't think.

worth having a look at coast or monsoon or house of Fraser.
if you could up your budget slightly then Karen Millen have beautiful dresses

The Biba one is WOW, but too pricey. I like the Oasis one. Brilliant ideas so far ...

Neither red nor coral, but, how about this one?
