Love wearing dress slips

At Now or Never we love dress slips. There's something sexy about them and as underwear they give a smooth silhouette and always make you feel a little better put together. 

Above: Now or Never Delphine Silk Slip

Worn as both underwear and outerwear, the popular dress slip has been a wardrobe staple for many a decade - popping up in movie scenes, cat walks and red carpets. It's been styled a number of ways and worn by everyone from royalty, Academy Award winners and super models to musicians and grungey teens. 

We've gathered a few of our favourite famous and fabulous slip moments. Enjoy!

 

 

1920s silent screen star, Louise Brooks.

NON Loves: Viviane Sassen

We love the images of Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, a leading fashion and art photographer. Her work is both beautiful and unsettling. She studied fashion at the Royal Academy in Arnhem, the Netherlands, and briefly became a model, working for Viktor and Rolf, before doing a photography degree in 1992. She has developed campaigns for numerous fashion houses including Miu Miu and Louis Vuitton.

The Scottish National Gallery presented her exhibition In and Out of Fashion which is accompanied by a gorgeous publication of the same name.

Here are a just a few of our favourites:
