Topshop 'Dress Me Up' celebrity dress hire

(dress donated by Christopher Kane)

Who doesn't love Toppers, especially when they com up with great new ideas like the 'Dress Me Up' dress hire project with all proceeds going to Age Concern and Help The Aged. The Dress Me Up initiative offers customers at the Oxford Circus store the chance to hire very expensive dresses previously owned (and worn) by celebrities, you can hire the dress for two days for a measly £40, on returning the dress you can then put a bid in to buy the dress when they are auctioned.

Generally your Christmas party dress is a 'one wear' and unless you are a millionaire you come up with the age old dilemma of wondering whether to buy from the high street and turn out in the same dress as Julia in HR or you spend a lot on something more expensive that you never wear again.

You could be hiring Frieda Pinto's yellow Burberry Prorsom, Kate Moss' Lanvin or one of Nicola Robert's bespoke GIrls Aloud stage costumes. Now, I'm not sure whether I'd fit into to any of those being over a size 6 and all but what can you do?
