This red Valentino gown from Garry Marshall's Pretty Woman became as much of an instant classic as the movie itself. Julia Roberts shined in this perfectly tailored gown with elegant white gloves and a fabulous '80s updo.

Black-Tie Event: Ball Gown Hire For Any Occassion

There are gowns, and then there are the gowns. The gowns women around the world idolize and model their wedding dresses and formal wear after. And the last few centuries are full of dresses that have long outlasted their wearers and established young starlets as timeless icons for the ages.

Perhaps one of the most opulent ball gowns from the ages is Princess Margaret’s dress which is going to be on display for the first time at the Royal Style in the Making exhibit at Kensington Palace, where Princess Diana’s wedding dress will also be shown to the public for the first time in decades.

Gowns are a particular type of dress. They are mystical, usually come with a big-budget price tag and an inability to be worn again. That’s why the rise in evening dress hire has seen boutiques across the country pop up and rake in revenues better than brick and mortar stores.

If you have an upcoming charity event, corporate cocktail function or an evening black-tie ball make sure to hire a ball gown from one of these Perth boutiques for your next event – and you’re guaranteed to feel like a dynast.
