Beautifully cut in wool crepe, with every dart carefully placed and a seductive square neckline which revealed the perfect amount of flesh, it was the dress which every woman wanted.
The Roland Mouret Galaxy made its debut in 2005. It was a hymn to femininity, celebrating curves where other designers had ignored them.
Carol Vorderman said of the iconic dress: ‘The Galaxy saw my curves and instead of having to hide them, this dress made me feel beautiful.
It still hangs in my wardrobe’

Seen on everyone from Halle Berry and Cameron Diaz to Rachel Weisz and Sienna Miller, the sleek sheath seemed to bestow poise and confidence.
The secret to its seductive shape lay in the thick, elasticised mesh underlay, made from a material called Powerflex that was used in corsets in the 1950s.
It pulled in the waist, pushed up the bosom and elevated the bottom.
Another part of its genius was the famous origami draped shoulders, which made it instantly iconic.
It was also — most unusually for high-end designer fashion — available in sizes up to a 20.
Initially retailing at £990, it sold out at Harvey Nichols within a few days, and for months there was a waiting list.
Vogue wrote: ‘For weeks you couldn’t open a newspaper or a magazine without seeing another young Hollywood A-lister wearing it.’
Demi Moore had one, as did Scarlett Johansson, Nicole Kidman, and Jodie Foster.
Victoria Beckham apparently had one in every colour, and wore the Galaxy’s successor, the Moon, in hot pink to husband David’s debut at LA Galaxy in 2007.

Mouret hosted an event at Selfridges in 2006 and was overjoyed when around 60 women turned up in the Galaxy.
He said: Túi xách công sở nữ đựng laptop ‘Each of them was complimenting each other.
Tell me, when do women ever want to wear the same dress?’
It spawned thousands of imitations — at one point Topshop was selling 5,000 Galaxy-style frocks a week for £65.
The original dress is still available today, for £1,595 via the Mouret website and shop in Mayfair.
