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!


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.

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!


BAFTA Awards – treat yourself: why not hire a beautiful evening gown, instead?

So, you’ve got the coveted invite to the BAFTA’s,  only a matter of weeks away. If it’s not a gleeful “yippee a chance to show off my Valentino” it may be that panicky feeling: ‘Oh, what am I going to wear?’ We all get that feeling don’t we? You might go shopping for something in a rush, repenting later or you could come and rent one of our perfect evening dresses.

We’ve been styling nominees and guests for over 30 years and are expert in dressing you up. It’s a long evening, so as well as looking the part in an outfit you can comfortably sit in you’ll need comfortable shoes too!

Tip: you might need a colourful, possibly jewelled wrap to keep you warm also.


Christmas time – ways to stay covered up at formal events

December brings more formal events than at any other time of the year.

Christmas time – ways to stay covered up at formal events

There’s a plethora of black tie Army and Navy dinners, where your shoulders must be covered as you dine. We advise using a shrug, or even a shawl in a light fabric such as tulle or chiffon, it’ll also stay put whilst you eat!

Alternatively, why not fix it in place with a small diamond broach, this will add some colour and light to the wrap.
