This Dress Ruled 2018, From Instagram to the Red Carpet to the Royal Wedding

This year has undoubtedly been the year of the dress. From Topshop’s polka-dot pinafore to Ghost’s blue daisy midi, so many came, went, were restocked, and subsequently went again. Of them all, though, The Vampire’s Wife has to be most celebrated frock outfitter of the last 12 months.

The brand first began gaining momentum back in 2017 when the likes of Alexa Chung, Sienna Miller, and Keira Knightley, as well as a legion of high-profile influencers, all wore the brand’s Festival dress on repeat. Owing to its universally flattering shape—a simple round neck, nipped-in waist, midi-length skirt, and elbow-length sleeves adorned with frilly cuffs—it’s little wonder it became an It-girl favorite.

Fast-forward to 2018 and The Vampire’s Wife’s star continued to rise. Then, at the royal wedding, it went supernova. Not one, not two, but three of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s guests opted for the brand’s frocks, putting them firmly in the global spotlight.

The Vampire’s Wife’s illustrious fan club keeps growing by the day—Jennifer Aniston being the latest A-lister to wear one of its fabulous creations.
