Dorothy Perkins' metallic maxi is the perfect tribute to J-Law's Galvan gown

Jennifer Lawrence’s Met Gala Dress Hits The High Street

Dorothy Perkins Metallic Maxi Dress, £45

We welcomed Jennifer Lawrence back to the red carpet with open arms as she dazzled in Dior at the Met Gala. As Anna Wintour’s co-chair of the event, Jennifer wore a custom cut-out gown and kept her hair swept up in a bun for her turn on the Met’s steps and, as always, she nailed it. Not only that, but J-Law then brought us yet another frock showstopper as she attended the Diamond Horseshoe afterparty.

We’ve seen slinky slips making a triumphant comeback of late, and Jen joined the upper echelons of the style set in her metallic design by Galvan. The London-based brand was only established last year, but already it counts Elizabeth Olsen and Sienna Miller among its A-list fans. And with Jennifer now joining that fan club, it looks like Galvan is well and truly on the map.

Thanks to her masterclass, we’re basing our after-dark dressing on Jen’s formula as of right now and, in true heroic fashion, Dorothy Perkins has come up trumps a with purse-friendly alternative to J-Law’s designer frock (which costs just under £1,000).

Yep, this dreamy maxi is only £45 but delivers all the slinky appeal of Jen’s Galvan gown, thanks to its cross-back straps and side slit. Perfect with bejewelled flats for summer nights, or with ankle-strap heels for a fancy wedding guest option. Either way, you’ll want to get this on your rails, pronto.
