Be a bardot beauty like Nadine in a Nadine Merabi gown

Congratulations to Hollyoaks stars Nadine Mulkerrin and Rory Douglas Speed who have welcomed a baby boy into the world. But let's throwback to June when she attended the British Soap Awards in a gorgeous Nadine Merabi gown that showed off her bump.

Think you recognise the piece? Well, that's because Stacey Solomon also wore the lacy gown at her baby shower. What a lovely coincidence!

We love the elegant bardot neckline and the flattering fishtail skirt, which really elevates the piece to glamorous new heights and adds to the alluring glamour.
