Wanting to get a piece of the fashion action, the celebs soon followed suit and white washed their own looks. Here’s a round-up of the best dressed women in white:

Before Cheryl Cole went into the hiding after the whole X Factor palava, she was spotted looking sensational in this white Stephane Rolland number at Cannes this year. The plunging neckline, gold accessories and sleek hair all amounted to a very sophisticated and sexy look.

Kim Kardashian simply oozes glamour in this halter Lanvin dress. The Grecian style and cinched in waist emphasise Kim’s fabulous curves and the flowing romantic look of the dress makes a refreshing change from her beloved body-con!

As always, Rihanna puts her own edgy twist on the latest trends, this time choosing to work her white look in androgynous chic. She keeps her Max Azria suit sexy with a daring neckline, feminine make-up and gorgeously tousled hair.

Mulberry introduces the Jewelled Lily

This week Mulberry announced the release of their new Jewelled Lily. Exclusive for SS11, this update on the classic Lily bag offers all the plus points of the bag we know and love – with a very fashion twist.

The beautiful embellished gem is fresh for spring and combines the perfect mini bag size with the flexibility to be worn as a clutch or shoulder bag. The sparkling revamp comes in the shape of a shower of 3000 show stopping Swarovski crystals.

Handmade in the UK, the bespoke beauty differs with each piece, guaranteeing the wearer a taste of haute couture history. Its unique craftsmanship, spring-like warm golden tones and delicate feminine crystals guarantee it to be a sure fire hit with the fash-pack, as well as securing its position as this season’s must have.

As much as this striking bag packs a punch, so does the price tag – it will set you back an astonishing £3,500. With the classic Lily retailing at around £500, is this glam treat worth the extra, or worth it at all? TELLUS what you think!
