Perhaps one of the most iconic films ever made, Breakfast at Tiffany’s is a true classic Hollywood film. In the movie, Holly (as played by Audrey) hosts a cocktail party in her apartment wearing a stunning dress which slings back over her shoulder.
Get the look, with Honor Gold’s Alice Dress – available in both midi and maxi dresses, this stunning dress comes in a range of summer pastels and deep rich colours, perfect for year-round cocktail party season. With ruched gathering around the dress to create a flattering fit and the asymmetric off-the-shoulder look, this is a classic dress perfect for any cocktail party.
The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby is both a book and movie (re-imagined twice!) known for its outrageous style and fashion. The style of the 1920’s was beautiful, along with the dresses, headwear and hairstyles, with cocktail parties occurring constantly throughout the story.
Whilst these dresses were simple in fit, they were all about the additions added – the ruffles, sequins and fur, added for ultimate wow! For a dress emanating this glorious fashion era, discover Honor Gold’s Harley Collection – a little more 00’s, these dresses feature sequins-galore, with a gorgeous open back and leg slit. You’ll be dancing all night – gatsby style – in one of these beautiful dresses! Shop our range of colours and styles here.

Whilst Sixteen Candles doesn’t exactly feature a cocktail party, the dresses that Molly Ringwald wears are befitting of so! Her beautiful bridesmaids gown features a gorgeous off-the-shoulder neckline, with a maxi skirt to finish and a stunning spring pink colour.
Get the look, with Honor Gold’s Mila Collection – available in a range of colours, both deep rich wintery styles and summery floral colours, this dress is perfect for your next cocktail party. Choose from both a midi or maxi length, you can certainly make an entrance with this beautiful cocktail party dress!

Is there a more classic movie than Titanic? We don’t think so. The dress that Kate Winslet wows Leo in in this classic movie is a beautiful evening gown, with gorgeous sleeves, sequin details and a slim line fit. Whilst this is a dress fit for a formal ball, we think that our Demi Dress is the perfect modern day take on this movie classic.
With lace detailing – similar to the transparency seen in Winslet’s dress – this midi dress is a sleeved dress, with a stunning bodycon fit. The capped sleeves with scalloped edges add a beautiful touch and finish the dress with such elegance. Shop our Demi Dress here.
Back to the Future
Cocktail party dresses come in many forms and styles – even Back to the Future style! Even though the classic “Under The Sea” dance is technically Prom night for the McFly clan, Lorraine’s gorgeous strapless dress makes us feel all sorta ways.
While the whole 60’s ruffles aren’t really our jam, the strapless style and pink colour is really similar to our Olivia Dress which is a gorgeous coral pink colour, with a midi length and a stunning hem design. With small arm straps for that ‘cold shoulder’ look, this dress is the perfect cocktail party dress for a special occasion.
