  • Carmen Borgonovo’s Hotlist

    As the co-founder and creative director of Borgo de Nor, Carmen Borgonovo knows a thing or two about designing divine event dresses. The label’s feminine styles with a bohemian twist are a go-to for summer celebrations. Carmen’s personal aesthetic is just as pitch-perfect; the former fashion director is a lesson in effortless fabulousness. Her signature style of sunshine colours, beautiful prints and eclectic accessories ensures she is always the best dressed guest.

    Borgo De Nor

    Summer Sun Red Merle Cotton Midi Dress£675

    “This is my ideal summer dress for a warm-evening soirée. The full tiered skirt moves and flows elegantly as as you walk, creating a showstopping effect, and the feminine spaghetti straps cut a flattering barely there look on the shoulders. Crafted in our surreal Summer Sun print, this style is quintessential Borgo de Nor for its otherworldly pattern and electric orange-red shade. It’s the type of dress you cherish and wear time and again, season after season.”

    White Poppy Feather-trim Crepe Cropped Top£475

    “I am loving anything with a feather trim at the moment (stay tuned for our AW collection). This top is the perfect statement piece for summer. Wear it with white or black trousers for a more formal event or with boyfriend jeans and rhinestone hoops for cocktails. I love its versatility and it will look great with sun-kissed skin.”

    Laura Lombardi

    Piatta Herringbone-chain 14kt Gold-plated Necklace£90

    “I love a gold chain necklace, especially when I’m wearing florals. I like the juxtaposition of hard and soft when dressing up.”

    Gianvito Rossi

    Portofino 105 Sandals£620

    “A gold sandal is a staple in my wardrobe. It’s my party shoe of choice, especially when I’m wearing print and colour during the summer.”

    Borgo De Nor

    Ravello Pink Farrah Cotton Maxi Dress£695

    “This style ticks all the boxes for me when it comes to summer event dressing. It’s elegant, feminine and sexy, and I love the off-the-shoulder ruffle detail. The shape is flattering for all body types (no wonder its one of our bestsellers) and is the perfect wedding or garden party dress.”

    Valentino

    Cady Couture Halterneck Silk Midi Dress£2,300

    “Amidst all my florals, I always have my go-to black dress. I adore  the clean lines and flattering silhouette of this style. It’s an investment piece that will last forever. I wear it with embellished or gold hoops and a flat or strappy sandal, depending on the occasion.”

    Good Girl Gone Bad£278.39

    “For evening, I usually use one of my vintage clutch bags, which are all flea-market finds, but this little treasure is perfect. It’s actually a perfume case that I wear as a handbag. It’s like a piece of jewellery.”

    Giuseppe Zanotti

    Crystal-Embellished Leather Mules£625

    “I love a barely there sandal. This crystal-embellished pair is effortless and timeless, with the perfect heel height for dancing the night away.”

    Proenza Schouler

    Embellished Fringed Bouclé-knit Maxi Dress£3,205

    Borgo De Nor

    Venezia Blue Julia Cotton Maxi Dress£755

    “Our bestselling Juliet is one of my favourites for summer. I love the dramatic puff sleeves and flowy skirt. It’s perfect for a black-tie event in the city or worn with flats for a beachside soirée.” 

    TAN-LUXE

    Super Glow Body, 150ml£36

    “Glistening skin is key during the summer and this body glow adds the perfect sun-kissed shimmer.” 

    Amina Muaddi

    Cameron Small Crystal-embellished Hoop Earrings£470

    Celine

    Mini Dress In Underpinning Viscose Black£1,300
