Crafted from textured lamé, the elegant and vintage-inspired dress is everything we desire in a golden gown and more!


Em Rata celebrates her 30th birthday at the beach in a mermaid-inspired Versace outfit.

Her gem-encrusted shell bra and cut-out detail slip skirt are from the spring/summer 2021 Versacepolis collection, inspired by a utopian settlement on the seabed ruled by Medusa.

Forever an icon in pink, Paris wishes a happy birthday to her hero and alleged relative Marilyn Monroe.

Taking a leaf out of Monroe’s book, Paris re-quotes the saying “imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring”.
