What a fox!!

Our client is wearing our beautiful summery number, a bright red halterneck, with a colourful bodice, a lovely low open back, and ruching detail on the bum.

Just perfect!

Hunt Ball

Our lovely recent client, pictured above with handsome man. Recently attended a Hunt Ball at the weekend.

She opted for a trumpet style evening gown, royal navy, in taffeta.

 

School Reunion

Here’s our beautiful client at her school reunion, in Scotland last month.

Ceri wore our red jersey, with an open split, and a netted back covered in crystals.

What a cracking photo!

Recital

This gorgeous photo was taken last month, Naomi performing at her Recital.

Naomi is in the red ball gown, she was in need of something spectacular, but comfortable at the same time.

What a beautiful setting!

Park Theatre Gala Dinner

This is Sarah and her dashing husband. They both went to the Park Theatre Gala Dinner in Novemeber.

Sarah is wearing our long rich gold, strapless sequin with leg split, teamed with a black bolero, for extra warmth.

She looks a million dollars in this dress!

Graduation Ball

Here is one of  our most recent clients, Lacey.

She was at her graduation, in Switzerland. Wearing our dusky pink, grecian, floor length gown.

That smile says it all!

Savoy Wedding

Another satisfied customer. The gorgeous Rebecca, wearing our emerald chiffon floor length gown, with a fitted bodice and encrusted shoulders in champagne.

Worn to a wedding at the Savoy last month

Attended an event at the Natural History Museum on Saturday.

1920’s Themed Birthday Celebration

This has to be one of my all time favourite customer pictures.

Zoe celebrated her 30th in absolute style. She went for a sophisticated Gatsby themed party.

The picture tells it all. Beautiful!

Engagement Party

Look at our bride to be – just wonderful!

Sophia is wearing the long ivory sequin, cross back dress.

Simply gorgeous!

Kensington Roof Gardens

Our recent client, Catherine, went to a circus themed school ball at Kensington Roof Gardens last month.

She is wearing the navy and nude tulle skirt ballgown.

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.

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!

amfAR Fundraising Gala


The German beauty stepped out in New York, wearing an Elie Sabb cotton blend lace dress last night to the amfAR fundraising gala. We personally feel the sleeves can look a little older on an evening gown?

What do you think?

Troxy Birthday Celebration


This is one of our fullest ball-gowns. layered with masses of orange tulle and a detailed red embellished bodice halter-neck. Doesn’t Sandra look picture perfect in it?!

‘Hi,

I enjoyed visiting One Night Stand. It was a lot of fun trying on different dresses that I would never normally dare to wear.. And I did feel glamorous during the party itself.

It’s also great not to have to find more closet space for a dress which, lovely as it is, I would only ever wear a couple of times in a lifetime!

thanks

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!

Prom Time


Dovile decided to go short for her prom last summer. Her outfit is very demure, the setting is very Jane Austen, plus she takes a cracking photo.

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.

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

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!

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.
