Rachel Bilson And The Perfect Wedding Guest Dress

By Jessica Vince

The season of weddings is here and along with it, plenty of nude heels, dad dancing and teeny tiny favours that’ll gather dust in your cupboard for umpteen years. But you may have noticed there’s a new staple sweeping weddings across the land: the Self Portrait dress.

Delicate, lacy and oh-so colourful, it’s little wonder the brand’s dreamy frocks have become perfect “I’m going to a wedding” fodder. Mega bloggers like Olivia Purvis (below) can’t enough of the ladylike designs and celebrity types are just as enthralled.

Take Rachel Bilson here who opted for the Daphne Teardrop guipure dress to celebrate her brother’s wedding. The actress stayed true to her boho leanings thanks to tiers of bold blue lace and a black bow at the neckline while the sheer panels add a subtle side order of sexy that won’t scare poor Gran. Isn’t it refreshing to see a star wearing an outfit that looks and feels designer, but doesn’t cost thousands? That’s a big YES.

We've arrived for wedding of the year, #carrieandmiguel 💍👰🏼🎩

It’s just more proof that Self Portrait is the ultimate go-to for ladies who want to look elegant with an edge, and stand out amongst the customary peachy florals. Founded by Saint Martins graduate Han Chong in 2013, the brand has quickly become famous for its on-trend occasion wear that doesn’t cost a fortune.

Feminine, sexy and ever so flattering, these are statement dresses that you’ll actually want to wear again and again. And when it looks like Chanel at a fraction of the price, what’s not to love?
