Naeem Khan all the way. There is something so reminiscent of a frock you would find Cleopatra adorned in about it. :)

I'm normally a bit wary of patterns, but no. 2 is absolutely stunning. I also love the stripey one, but how thin do you need to be to wear that?

I've been dying to comment on this post! Love the Sophie Theallet gown. It's sophisticated enough for older women like me, but would still look fabulous on a 20 yr old.
