Wearing my new Jones and Jones dress in Sharm el Sheikh 

Jones and Jones is my go-to place for that touch of glamour, they sell a huge range of dresses suited for every occasion, every style and every figure. 



Here I am wearing the Audrey Black and Silver Organza dress which you can buy here for £60. This dress is such a timeless classic and so easy to pair with any shoes or accessories. I love the attention to detail and the skater skirt is extremely flattering - perfect for a pear shaped figure like mine. As I often find it difficult to find dresses which can compliment or fit my small waist and bottom heavy shape. 
 
I've been a big fan of Jones and Jones for years and own around seven of their dresses now! They are based in London and this is where all their products are made as they proud supporters of British manufacturing. Their dresses take inspiration from 40's design and 50's styling.  
 
Each dress allows you to add your own touch, the Audrey Organza dress can be worn in the evening with heels and red lipstick, as shown here, for that classic look. For a casual look during the day add a leather jacket and converse for that girlie style with a rock chic touch. The dress is extremely comfortable, even in the humid Egyptian heat!

Edith Head

Posted   |  By jones + jones
 
 
 

Legendary Hollywood costume designer Edith Head has won more Oscar’s than any other woman. Breaking conventions and starting fashion trends Edith doesn’t have to pretend to be humble. Her influences don’t stop there, rumours began to arise when Pixar launched The Incredibles and Edith was immortalized as Edna Mode. Here we explain why Edith and her extraordinary body of work will never be forgotten…

 

Edith was born in California in 1897 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in letters and sciences from the University of California, Berkeley.  Despite lacking art, design and costume experience Edith was hired as a costume sketch artist at Paramount Pictures. She worked at Paramount for 43 years before moving to universal pictures to work alongside Alfred Hitchcock. Edith was loved among many of the leading female stars in the 1940’s and 1950’s such as, Ginger Rogers, Bette Davis, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Elizabeth Taylor. 

 

 

 

Edith once reported she had used forged sketches in her interview for Paramount, became one of the most idolized costume designers in cinema history.

In her five-decade career, Edith has won eight Oscar’s and defined the legendary styles of Hitchcock’s stars, Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn.  

 

 

Edith caused a phenomenon when she outfitted Elizabeth Taylor for 1951 film A Place in the Sun. The white, full skirt strapless layered gown with delicate flower detail was a sensation that was widely copied by designers. Edith was believed to have designed the first strapless dress to appear on the big screen and this classic Fifties ‘prom style” dress is still popular today.  

 


As well as creating on-screen costumes, Edith designed dresses for many actresses she worked with to wear to award ceremonies. Her most famous are those worn by Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly at the Oscars. Grace Kelly's powder blue dress was rumoured to have been the most expensive Oscars dress ever made! 


Edith’s trademark look of a blunt bob and thick framed glasses gives her the cool embrace and makes her a female legend.
