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.

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.


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

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.

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 🙂

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.

Monochrome in Stockholm

This lady hired the black and white Jovani evening gown to stand out from the crowd recently, to a wedding in Stockholm.

She looks simply sensational. Cute looking couple!


Glyndebourne Opera Festival

Glyndebourne has taken place annually since 1943. This beautifully country house, estimated to be around 600 years old is located in East Sussex.

Glyndebourne is attended by those who have a love for opera, and beautiful scenery. There is plenty to do, it’s a full day if not more: fine dining, and lots of Art & Sculpture to admire. The festival itself runs from the middle of May until the last weekend of August. Whilst those who generally attend the festival come for the opera (tickets needed) most also like to make a day of it, and take time to immerse themselves in the wonderful gardens, where you can bring a picnic and take in all that Glyndebourne has to offer.

So you have your ticket and you are ready to attend this grand event. The next most important thing: What to wear? You know this really is an event you can afford to go all out and look fabulous for!

We advise, stick with the tradition of wearing an evening gown. The founder, John Christie always said, he felt this was one of the ways the audience could show respect for the performers. Plus it’s an excuse to get dressed up.

Ladies tend to go with long dresses, floaty, colourful, even a print can look very feminine. A wrap works well too, an organza wrap can easily brighten up an outfit, and works well in the evening when it starts to get a little chillier. Obviously a nice coat works well too, if you tend to feel the cold in the evening.

Shoes, wear comfortable ones. If you intend on strolling around the gardens, maybe don’t opt for a stiletto heel, as we know they tend to sink into the ground. A simple court shoe might be more effient, or just go with flats – the safer option.


How To Measure Yourself

You may want some help when doing this.


1. Stand straight with your feet together

2. Start at the top of your head and pull the measuring tape down to the floor (you may need some help with this)

3. Don’t wear shoes


1. Your waist is usually found 1inch above your bellybutton

2. Wrap the measuring tape around your waist, not so tight so allowing you to breathe comfortably


1. Your hips are generally about 7” below your waist (depending on your size)

2. Looking in a mirror, find the widest part of your hips

3. The measuring tape should brush across both of your hipbones


1. You start by measuring at the back, from one edge of the shoulder socket to the next shoulder socket


1. Relax your arms

2. Keep your bra on, as you’re not measuring your bra size

3. Pull the tape around the back across the shoulder blades, then under your arms and across the fullest part of your bust – take measurement
