Also taking on the Green Carpet Challenge (GCC) were Claudia Winkleman in a 1978 Yves Saint Laurent black cloque silk dress with a marabou feather trim and Ophelia Lovibond in a 2004 Lanvin in black lace gown with a fanned train made from black lace and silk.

WilliamVintage specialises in Vintage Haute Couture travelling around the world to find beautiful pieces and bring them back to life. In an interview with GCC owner William Banks-Blaney mentions that his “greatest find was 17 pieces of the 1967 Courreges haute couture collection in a barn in Devon”. Love It!
