It's taken us a minute or two to get adjusted to Stam's new darker look. Black is such a severe hair colour and needs to be kept shiny, full and healthy so we are on the fence about the choice of colour but with this dress there could be nothing better. The deep, dark raven locks work against the blood outfit sensationally.

Looking like Spanish royalty, Stam matched her gorgeous Valentino couture dress with a Valentino clutch. Tousled looks, to one side, a deep red lip and some statement earrings and bracelets make this look absolutely breathtaking.

You'd think that a dress with lace, slight one-shoulder detail, cap sleeves, ruching and cascading ruffles would be over the top swallow the wearer, but Stam works this look to perfection.
