London's Fashion Girls Just Wore the Coolest Dresses I've Seen All Summer

The red carpet is often far removed from what you would (or could) ever actually wear, but at last night's Royal Academy Summer Exhibition party, we spotted many dresses that would make the perfect wedding guest look. Last night, London's fashion crowd embraced vibrant prints, midi silhouettes and playful accessories, showing nothing is as fun as playing dress up. Laura Jackson wore a beautiful Simone Rocha puff-sleeve party dress that featured a delicate tulle overlay covered in orange-and-pink floral embellishments. Stacy Martin dressed like a ballerina in a pink dress with a full skirt and exquisite blossom detailing. Shrimps' pearl Antonias bag was the accessory of choice, and there were no rules in the shoe department, as we spotted everything from trainers to stilettos to leather brogues. Keep scrolling to see 11 of our favourite looks from the party.
