What would you wear with this party dress? Hairstyle?

I bought the LK Bennett Heart Dress in purple a few months ago as I have a ball to go to (it's not hugely formal so shorter dress should be fine), but I have no idea what to wear with it. I'm thinking it will probably have to go with black heels as thats all I've got.

I was also wondering if you had any ideas about hairstyle or makeup too? :biggrin:

I'm 5 foot 9, size 8 with quite long red hair which curls or straightens easily, and a full fringe. I can add a photo of me in the dress if that would help.

Here's a link to the dress, it actually has some lighter lilac tones to it in the light.
