If you’re at a loss for a style to rock for your glamorous evening, try picking one from your favorite celebrity at her red carpet best!
Review the gads of photos available online until you find one of your fave celebrity at her ultimate best. Think Angelina Jolie in her thigh-high-slitted formal gown, Jennifer Lopez in a floor-sweeping, delicately embellished gown with shoulder cutouts, or Michelle Williams decked out in a floor-length red dress adorned with multiple tiers and peplum flair.
Adapt the look to make yourself comfortable. If you just can’t bring yourself to show off so much leg, don shoulders cutouts or wear peplum, all is not lost. Go for a similar look with a gown in a related color and overall style without an exact match.
For instance, a floor-length, white sheath gown with a lesser slit can still channel Jolie while a tiered red ball gown sans peplum can work for a nod at Williams. A strapless Lopez-like gown can stand in for shoulder cutouts, or you could choose a similar dress with cutouts on the back instead.
Add a splash of your own personality. Getting inspiration from a celebrity look can be fab, and you can bring the fabulousness up a notch with a personal touch. Go for a totally-you clutch, piece of jewelry or shoes that compliments the look and makes it your own.
Celebrity looks can be a great starting point for creating a look that dazzles and delights, and these tips can help make the creation work for prom, a formal dance or that special date!
