Oh, that Red Carpet. How it shines with Hollywood glamour, glaring upon us while we flip through weeklys at the newsstand and every time we turn on the Internet. Still, even if you’re not on your way to the next blockbuster primer, there are occasions where we, the stylish sidewalk-walking type, need to bring our dazzling angles to the forefront. Be it a gala affair, a charity event, a wedding reception, an awards dinner, a night at the Opera, etc. Always embrace you’re chance to don any gown-esque ensemble (It’s good to be fabulous, darling).
Remember, it’s all about attitude and smiling for the cameras — or sultry pouting, if you wish. Inspired by our favorite celebrity Red Carpet looks, we’ve searched Australia’s best to bring you some full-on-glam options sure to suit your next shinning moment. Enter: dramatic adornments and eye-popping silhouettes.
ALICE MCCALL Capture Me Long Dress in Black
A Sweet Heart neckline frill spot tulle and cotton gown, with sheer mesh shoulder and drop sleeve, the subtle detail in this sultry black floor-length is old-fashioned splendor at its best. You almost want a glass of champagne just looking at it!
ALEX PERRY Constance Dress
A pink tone represents the desire and authority of red softened with the purity, honesty and wholeness of white. Thus, a pink gown — by law of color — naturally eludes feminine charm. Here, Alex Perry combines this blush-worthy design with his signature sleek, structured aesthetic. Such beauty.
RACHEL GILBERT Zaria Dress
A Knee Length sequined dress with side splits and short sleeves, this Zaria Dress is stunning, sophisticated and wonderfully wearable. Pair it with chic heels and flashy jewelry, and voilà, you’re ready to strut.
CARLA ZAMPATTI Prima Ballerina Gown
A springtime dream pretty much sums up this ballerina-enthused gown. White, with hand sewn orchid appliqué, this dress will make your skin glow while the high-low hem tulle detail flatters your figure.
TALULAH Her Journey Dress
Elegant with just the right amount of sexy, this black sequin dress has some great detailing and is complete with luxurious PU sequin and georgette fabrics (so not only does it look good, but it feels amazing as well).
HARDWICK BY MARINA HARDWICK
The red carpet has always been for the lace, but lately, sheer has been making quite the appearance. If you too want to do experiment with the risqué, this is a must. It’s a striking, mature approach to the show-all trend.
BY JOHNNY. Lidi Stripe vs Lace Dress
If you prefer to take the edgier side to formal wear, then we suggest going along these lines. With lace, sheer and mix matching pattern combinations, By Johnny offers up a beautiful — on the shorter side — piece of evening wear ideal for any upcoming head-turning instances.
