Two beautiful actresses in Juno Says Hello

Actress Annabel Scholey is playing Lady Anne opposite Kevin Spacey in the Sam Mendes production of Richard III at the Old Vic. For Press Night she picked out a 1930s crimson evening gown from our boutique. Annabel looked absolutely stunning - here she is with Kevin Spacey at the Savoy Hotel in London:

Annabel was accompanied by actress Maimie McCoy - a good friend of Juno Says Hello and pâtissière extraordinaire.

Maimie - also known as Mary - set up Mary's Tea Parties, specialising in elegant afternoon teas; the perfect way to celebrate any occasion, from birthdays to baby showers, to hen parties. Each party is made entirely the way you want it. She will suggest a selection from her carefully prepared menus with delights such as raspberry “fantasy” cake, or delicate lavender shortbread stacks, and together you can create a wonderfully bespoke party. Everything is handmade by Mary in her little kitchen and is delivered to your home, served by professional Afternoon Tea waiting staff, and then cleared up and whisked away, leaving you to play host and delight in cakes.

Mary surrounded by her delicious confections

Mary has supplied delicious treats for several Juno Says Hello late-night sales... the cakes and tarts are so irresistible they are in danger of outshining the dresses! We've had miniature Bakewell tarts, passion-fruit meringues, ice-cream cone cupcakes... all absolutely mouthwatering.

Mary picked out our stunning Scarpetta dress to wear to the Press Night with Annabel. Doesn't she look amazing?!

The chevron-pleated fabric is a black silk-cotton mix and the dress comes with matching belt. Click here to view the dress online.

We're doing another studio sale this afternoon and Mary is about to drop off another tray of delicious goodies... it's very difficult to resist eating all of them before the customers arrive!

If you would like to come along to our next event and sample her cakes for yourself, please get in touch via this link and let us know.

Princess Catherine works a black lace shift

Princess Catherine arrived in Ottawa, Canada wearing a black lace shift by British-based Canadian designer Erdem Moralioglu:

I had to do a double take when I saw this picture... Juno Says Hello has a dress that is almost identical. A stunning vintage 1960s 'nude illusion' black lace dress with peach silk lining:

The dress is similar to size 10 and is available to buy here. If you would like to make an appointment to visit our Kings Cross studio, please get in touch via this link. We can open up any time between 7am and 10pm, including weekends. There is no obligation to buy and all visitors receive a Juno Says Hello canvas tote and scented candle.

Black lace dresses are absolutely foolproof - you will always look sexy and chic. Here's a picture of Marion Cotillard from Vogue Italia wearing a similar dress:
