Time for a red carpet dress ? Whether you are attending a formal wedding, a matric dance or awards function, this is the blog to inspire you ! Here are our best looks from the 2017 Academy Awards.
Naomi Harris – Calvin Klein
Sequins, sequins, sequins! Naomie Harris looked magnificent in this full-sequins, white, Calvin Klein by Appointment. The dress itself is a fitted tube, sitting on the knee with a sweet-heart neckline and cut out below the bust; relatively simple. But what transforms this red carpet dress into a show stopper is the elegant, straight train falling from the back of the garment. Instead of covering the leg with a full length skirt, this train actually emphasises the leg giving this look beautiful height and poise. Harris pulls the look together with yellow sandals giving that dash of colour.
Michelle Williams – Louis Vuitton
Michelle Williams was all on trend with this two-tone, plunging halter-neck. The full, champagne coloured skirt is made of a textured fabric which softens the black of the bodice, creating a beautifully feminine look. The deep plunge of the halter-neck gives lovely length to her chest and neckline. Her colour choices together with her natural skin tone and hair colour create an elegant, harmonious look.
Taraji P. Henson – custom Alberta Ferreti
Glamour at its best! Taraji P. Henson effortlessly rocks this red carpet dress midnight blue, velvet gown. A killer slit, train and wide ‘v’, off the shoulder neckline is clearly a winning combination. Paired with a Luminance diamond necklace and an Emerald ring the Hidden Figures lead graces the red carpet with absolute glamour.
Emma Stone – Givency
Drawing inspiration from the ‘swing-time’ feel of the film, the La La Land star dazzled the red carpet in this gold, Givenchy gown. Not only was her red carpet dress a winner but Emma Stone also walked away with an Oscar for Best Lead Actress. The beautifully fitted bodice and tasselled skirt elongated the actress by drawing the eye up and down the silhouette. The gold sparkle of the fabric perfectly complimented her red hair and porcelain skin, tying her look together effortlessly.
