Phoebe Dynevor's modeling campaign makes me want to dress like I'm in Bridgerton - and now I can

You won't look like you just got done playing the '90s game, Pretty Pretty Princess.

Phoebe Dynevor's modeling campaign makes me want to dress like I'm in Bridgerton - and now I can

Instead of putting together an elaborate runway show customary for most brands during Fashion Week, London-based fashion brand, Self-Portrait showcased its fall '21 collection starring Phoebe Dynevor of the period-drama, Bridgerton.

I couldn't contain my excitement as I gushed over the clothing!

Within the photos, Dynevor, who plays Daphne Bridgerton on the Netflix series, can be seen adorned with gems, bows, sparkles, and lace in likeness to her character.



The actress was also seen wearing pastel and accent colors, puff-sleeves, and corset dresses which was awesome because it is a modern take on the magical world of Regencycore.


I've always appreciated the way this particular style of dressing looked in films and TV shows. Still, anytime I would wear a puff sleeve or try out statement jewelry pieces, I ended up looking like I just got done playing the classic '90s game, Pretty Pretty Princess, instead of a fashionista.

Moreover, Dynevor told British Vogue that working with Self- Portrait's founder and creative director, Han Chong, was a breeze.

"It's funny, I think that it's completely coincidental that there is this amazing thread that runs through what I wore on Bridgerton and Han Chong's collections, which is interesting as he designed the collection before the show had come out," said Dynevor.

"But beyond that, I feel like Self-Portrait really has its eye on a much more modern and real way of dressing."

I second that!

Although Chong designed this 28-piece collection before Bridgerton entered the hearts and romantic dreams of over 82 million viewers, it seems right on par with the show's essence despite the ensembles' modernity.


The collection contains co-ords, dresses, and other items that resemble modern takes on the gowns, waistcoats, and corsets shown on the series.



If you are someone like me who wants to explore the Regencycore look and vibe without looking like you're playing dress-up, take a look at Self-Portrait's fall '21 collection, which will be available in July.

Can tech help female entrepreneurs break the bias?

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases - solving this problem is bigger than supporting women, it’s about supporting the national economy.

Women founders continue to come up against common challenges and biases

Starting a business may have historically been perceived as a man’s game, but this couldn’t be further from reality. Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
