Here we have Sam, who was in the Miss London final a couple of weeks back. She looks fantastic here.

A winner in our eyes!

Columbian Wedding

This radiant lady recently jetted off to Columbia, for a spectator 3 day event wedding!

She hired the perfect the dress for the occasion. It’s our bright pink tulle, side split, with beautifully detailed  embellishment. She said she had a wonderful time.

Gold & Black Goddess Gown

I love Ruth in this gold and black goddess gown. She wore it to her important black tie event which took place in London. The skirt is pleated, for the swooshing effect.

Purple Sequin Sparkle

Here’s another satisfied client, Lucy,  wearing our long side split, low back, all over sequin purple dress, to her event a couple of weeks ago.

National TV Awards


This blonde bombshell and fabulous actress, was seen on the red carpet last month, at the National TV Awards.

Hannah is wearing a navy jersey, deep plunging, heavily embroidered neck line dress, teamed with a faux fur crisp white stole.

Oscars 2015!


Danya, a very lucky lady, was invited to the Oscars last week. Not many get this opportunity, so Danya decided to go all out on the red carpet.

She is wearing a chocolate brown, slightly embroidered ball gown, fitted at the waist and with a full skirt for added volume.

Dayna, you should have won an Oscar for ‘Best Dressed!’

New York Met Ball


We just love when our dresses get to jet off for an event. This was worn in New York, by a lady called Nicola at a recent Met Ball. It’s our full skirted, gold bodice ball gown.

Perfect for dancing all night in!

Will you be my Valentine?


Valentine’s Day is upon us this weekend..

For those who need something special? Come on in and hire something wonderful!

Hunt Ball


Our gorgeous Harriet needed something sophisticated, yet sexy to wear to a Hunt Ball recently.

She hired our floral black fishtail, cross-back long evening gown. Just beautiful!

Grammys 2015


She’s not shy when it comes to making appearances on the red carpet. And this outfit certainly won’t go unforgotten. Rihanna is seen in a rose coloured tiered ball gown from the Giambattista Valli’s Haute Couture line.

BAFTAS Follow Up


Julianne Moore last night won the Bafta for Best Actress for her role in the drama, Still Alice. She wore a long sleeved, floor length choker neck scarlet coloured dress.

Who says redheads can’t wear red?!

BAFTA


It’s that time of year again, where award winning actors and actresses are credited for their performances throughout the year. But I can’t bypass this blog-post without a mention of the glamorous, show stopping, jaw dropping, evening dresses that grace the red carpet every February. It’s black tie at its finest. And we are lucky to say, we have some of our own attending this prestigious event.

Keep on the lookout for photos from the event.

Brick and Mortar


Our lovely Margaret, is wearing the deep black, off the shoulder, rose pattern long ball gown.

‘Hi Joanna

This email is well overdue, but I wanted to thank you for your help with a dress for the charity ball I attended in November. The dress attracted so many compliments, both from friends and from people I didn’t know – on one occasion a young man came up to me and said his girlfriend wanted to tell me what a stunning dress I had on, but wasn’t able to as she had a bad case of hiccups, so she had sent him to tell me lol! Many people said it was the best dress at the ball. I really enjoyed wearing the dress, and I told everyone who commented where I had got it from, so I hope I have generated some new business for you. I will definitely be back for next year’s ball gown.

Have a lovely weekend.

Kind regards

Margaret’

City Ball


Jess is here again, wearing a very sexy, low back, high neck, with flesh coloured inserts, to a City Ball.

There is no surprise why this is a very sort after dress!

Raft and Walking With The Wounded


Lavinia attended the Raft and Walking With The Wounded, Charity Gala Dinner, back in November at The Hurlingham Club.

She wore our famous black one shoulder floor length evening dress.

Christmas Party


Lyga wanted something elegant and sexy for her work Christmas party.

She certainly made the right choice with this simple long black, low v-neck gown, and modest split on the leg.

Russian Ball


Jessica, one of our regulars, is seen wearing our blue/purple floral ball-gown to the Russian Ball last October.

Our Very Own X-Factor Contestant


She made it to the judge’s houses back in 2014. We were all shocked when she hadn’t made it through to the next round! But it’s good to see she is still carrying on with that remarkable voice.

Kerrianne is wearing our pale gold cocktail dress, seen performing at Her Majesty’s Theatre last October.

Warwick Racecourse

Emma (left) hired our incredible strapless, tulle fishtail, heavily encrusted gown for her cousin’s 18th birthday party.

They had the whole of Warwick Racecourse for the occasion. That sure is something to dress to the high 9’s for!

Elton John Ball

This is the charming Brenda. She was invited last week to Elton John’s prestigious annual summer ball, held in Windsor, where money is raised for Elton’s AIDS Foundation.

She looks an absolute knock-out in our navy heavy jersey, capped shoulder, floor length gown.

 

Pretty in Red

This looker of a lady is wearing our favourite silk, tight fitting, deep red cocktail dress to a dinner.

Classic design, yet very elegant and ladylike, just like our Alex.

Lady in Blue

This pretty lady attended her friend’s wedding in London. She was after something long and glamorous for the occasion. So we kitted her out with this beautiful long, 3 layer tulle gown, with a-line embellishment.

We think we Monica looks splendid, and I’m sure she felt as good as she looks!

Natalie Pinkham

Here’s the gorgeous Natalie Pinkham, wearing one of our gowns to the Jaguar Academy Of Sport Annual Awards, earlier this year.

A few kind words from her to us.

“One Night Stand has a wonderful collection of dresses and jewellery, you are guaranteed to find the perfect frock for a special occasion. They are very friendly and helpful with styling tips. Plus the resident cat Yoda always loves a cuddle!

If you want it specific to the Jaguar Awards…

I wanted something stylish but comfortable and at ONS I fell in love with a number of dresses but ultimately went for this one…which fitted like a glove

Children’s Butterfly Ball

The Children’s Butterfly Ball took place not so long ago, and what a good cause it is. Our smiley lady, Mary Anne attended in our purple embellished capped sleeved evening gown.

I bet she made many heads turn!

 

Classic Black Dress

The demure Rachel here wore our low back black jersey gown that ties at the back and hangs loosely. Worn to her leavers ball this Monday evening.

Such a grand photo, we hope she’ll be back in the future!

High School Prom

Check out this gorgeous young thing! This lovely lady had her school prom to attend and hired this gown for it.

She informed us that she won second best for her gown too, which of course we don’t doubt, as she looks absolutely knock out here.

Belle of the Ball

Our beautiful client, Rachel (right) had her annual awards ceremony with work to attend earlier this month.

She’s full of confidence and not afraid to go glamorous. We decided on the full length gold strapless dress would be ideal.. next time round I’m sure she’ll be back to hire something even more elaborate.

Night at the V&A

Anna, (on the left in the picture) hired this black and gold lace top with embellishment, and then accessorised it with this tulle black scarf for the evening – how very formal they all look!

Charity Ball at The Grosvenor House

This gorgeous looking lady went to a Charity Ball last week at the Grosvenor House. In aid for the charity,  The Children’s Trust 30th Anniversary Ball.

“I want to thank you so much for your personalised, attentive service. You helped me find exactly the right dress for me, and the fact that you were able to tailor it to me was a wonderful extra benefit. I will definitely come back to you when the need next arises, and will also tell my friends.” Maria McHugh.

Livery Dinner

This is the lovely Beth, who attended a Livery dinner with her better half last week – She’s wearing our super sexy, gold embroidered shoulder dress with front and back mesh inserts – a real show stopper!

“Thanks. I loved the dress. Didn’t want to take it off. The whole experience was  a delight! I had lots of compliments!” Beth France.

A Touch of Green

This is the lovely Emily, she  hired  this strapless sweetheart neckline emerald green gown for her birthday recently. Her theme was Oz, and her guests were encouraged to wear ‘A touch of green’. I think she sure looks the part.

I wonder if she had some red shoes on to match the occasion?

Winter Sparkle!

This lovely group pictured here, attended Emma’s 18th, (2nd from the left) at the Hurlingham in December just gone. The theme was Winter Sparkle, and don’t they all look magnificent?

Carol, Emma’s mum, (pictured on the left) wore an evening gown from us in navy and lace, full length. She couldn’t have looked more perfect in my opinion!

 

Marvellous Monte Carlo

This lucky dress got to go to Monte Carlo would you believe. Snezana wore it to the Angel Film Awards – Monaco International Film Festival 2013, over the weekend just gone.

And isn’t she wearing so well? If only she could of taken me too 🙂

Quite spiffing I say!

Sequin Queen

Winter White Gala

600 hundred guests embarked on Kensington Palace for their charity ball, Winter Whites Gala, which took place on Tuesday 26th November. An event which raises money for the charity, Centrepoint, for homeless young people. An astounding 1million was raised on the night.

Celebrity guests included, Prince William, Jon Bon Jovi, and Taylor Swift. This handsome trio pictured, were lucky enough to attend this event, and boy did they enjoy it! The two ladies hired their whole outfits from us, and we were more than happy to help make them sparkle for their winter ball.

She looks simply sensational. Cute looking couple!

 

One Happy Customer

Now isn’t this a photo and a half?!

The lady in the photo hired an evening gown from us to attend her work event last week. And doesn’t she look just dazzling in it? (if you haven’t guesses who, the one who’s smiling ear to ear!)
