GMD stylist pick

Lynda Bell - Stylist / Blogger
Every week our Stylist Picks features dresses from the GMD wardrobe handpicked by some of the most discerning eyes in fashion, from stylists to bloggers. Each style-savvy contributor comments on their favourite styles, and gives tips on how to achieve a complete, occasion-ready look whether you are renting a prom dress, a wedding guest dress or a cocktail dress.

This week Lynda Bell takes over our GMD stylist picks to present her favourite dresses from Girl Meets Dress. As a freelance fashion stylist with long experience in fashion magazines, no week is the same for Lynda. One week she's styling people for events and press calls, the next she's shooting new season campaigns, the next she's sourcing models and poring over portfolios etc. Lynda loves the process of turning a model or real person into a creative fashion-driven image. You can be inspired by her fashion and style blog Elle Belle Fashion  

"WHAT A COLOUR! Stunning, and will flatter everyone. I recently wore a Roland Mouret dress to a wedding, and I felt like a princess. The gorgeous bow detail and waterfall draping makes this a dress for the small-chested and screams out for a pair of heels"


Alexander Wang vest dress ALEXANDER WANG
"The tuxedo is re-born as a sexy cute and cheeky, I can't believe celebrities like Katy Perry or Zooey Deschanel haven't worn it already. Keep accessories simple, and wear with red lips"


Richard Nicoll dress RICHARD NICOLL
"One of the top London designers, this dress is sexy and cool. The sexy bustier top will get you noticed, and the fun City-inspired chequered skirt shows you just want to have fun"


Diane von Furstenberg Dress DIANE VON FURSTENBERG
Colour blocking is a huge trend for summer, and the queen of colour shows how to do it - bright colours on a dress need a clean simple silhouette, with just a small bow detail at the hip. Gorgeous, wear it on holiday with gold flat sandals, and a clutch bag (and a tan!)


Marc by Marc Jacobs dress MARC BY MARC JACOBS
"Military is about to make a major comeback into our wardrobes for A/W 2012 - pick up this dress and wear the grey with navy blue or khaki green to nail the trend. Add femininity and shape with high heel shoes/ankle boots and bright nails"
