Chic style alert! The V&A's Ballgowns exhibition will be EPIC. No matter if you are a die-hard fashionista or simply a woman with a penchant for a pretty party frock, this Jubilee extravaganza (which heralds the opening of the new fashion galleries) will delight. Sixty dresses by designers including Erdem, Norman Hartnell and Alexander McQueen mix vintage style with contemporary directionalism. We're swooning just thinking about the silhouettes, the fabric and the prints.
