Made In Chelsea may not be on our telly boxes right now (it's a daily struggle, folks) but Millie Mackintosh has kindly been satisfying our Chelsea fix on an almost weekly basis. We've seen the lovely lady strike a pose for mega beauty brands from St Tropez to Umberto Gianni and we've watched her travel the world with rapper beau Professor Green, making her the glammest groupie of 2012. And her latest move is from beauty to clothes with Lipsy - launching their luxury dress collection in-store and online TODAY!
As you can see from our sizzling gallery of campaign images, Ms Mackintosh is fronting the V.I.P dress range and looks typically foxy showcasing the autumn/winter designs. The red carpet-worthy dresses come in feminine shapes and are created in luxurious fabrics with elegant detailing including intricate beadwork, tulle appliqué and jewel embellishments. With prices from £90.00 - £140.00, Cavalli-tastic glam has never been so attainable.
Our picks? We're loving the sophisticated full length midnight black sequin gown with sexy thigh length leg split and knee length asymmetric mink cocktail dress with chiffon overlay and appliqué flowers, while Millie’s favourite is the contrast vintage cream prom-style mini dress with sequined bustier and full kick skirt.
