What better way to Rule Britannia, than in vintage red, white and blue, check out our outfits below to get into the spirit!

Can You Say Prom?

Yes, It's nearly that time of the year again indeed. Everyone is running around trying to find the perfect prom dress, the one that will stand out. The one dress that promises you will look absolutely gorgeous, before you even put it on. Do not fret so much now, because there is an amazing option right here at RMV.


It is really hard to tell whether it is the amazing  floral pattern or the way the pale yellow reminds us of warm custard...mmm either way, I don't care who takes me to the prom just as long as I can wear this dream.

Elegant skylines

If we were around in the late 1940’s we would definitely want to be the fifth member of this group! It definitely takes an elegant group of women not to be outdone by the New York skyline, but these four are definitely up to scratch. Then again this photo was taken by legendary photographer Norman Parkinson for Vogue 1949, so they did have a little help! With hints of red peeking out from the sophisticated black coats, gorgeous brooches and some incredible head wear, this should be a master class for any aspiring fashion photographer.

Natalie Portman Rocking Vintage Dior

Still can't believe the Oscars are over. It's almost like Christmas, you wait for it all year round, but the actual day is the usual swift collage of fabulously coloured blurred events. Then it ends, and the countdown until next year starts again. In fact, my stress levels peaked when trying to stream the event online (thanks Virgin Media by the way) much more than they had about my essay due the next day.

And you know what? If I flunked it, it was well worth it! I still get slightly flustered when I flip through magazines to find photos of Natalie Portman's Vintage 1954 red and black polka dot Dior dress! Seriously this girl is a goddess sent to earth to save us all with fabulous couture!


She is my biggest girl crush everrrrrrrrrr <3
