Watching the stars sashay across the red carpet in Chanel, Dior and Givenchy Haute Couture during awards season is enough to inspire jealousy in any woman. Why not take that envy by the horns and cultivate your own red carpet look for less? The stores are full of designer knockoffs…and none will be the wiser. You just need to know the red carpet trends, and Glad Lash has you covered!
Red Carpet Reds
All shades of red—from tomato, to cherry, to garnet—dominate the red carpet this season, but stars donning bright reds have looked particularly captivating. Emulate the style savvy Naomi Watts and Jennifer Laurence with a sexy, new red frock.
Elegant black gowns with a touch of noir and a kiss of chic stand out nicely against the red backdrop. Especially popular is black combined with sheer lace. Check out Julianna Marguiles and Rachel Weisz’s getups from the 2013 Golden Globes.
It wasn’t all sleek, haute glamour on red carpets this year. Several ladies taunted with flirty floral dresses that were simple and classy. Sienna Miller proved at the Golden Globes that girly is classy, sassy and sophisticated all in one.
Neutrals popped up in virtually every shade from nude to gold to pink. Layered pinks and bejeweled golds decorated the likes of Amy Adams, Kerry Washington and Connie Britton. You can glam up any old dress with a fresh pattern of gems and sparklies!
Whites with no hint of bridal flair, along with shades of ice blue, brightened the red carpet. The most popular dress styles? Full-length ball gowns ruled, quite a few teased with thigh high slits, and even the mermaid gowns made hearts skip a beat.
A tested style tip to take seriously is adding a belt at your waist. Jennifer Gardner and Jennifer Lawrence showed you how to pull off the look impeccably at the Golden Globes. You’ll look like you got a tummy tuck while flaunting your curves!
You can’t go wrong with the sweetheart neckline, which adds soft sophistication to any dress. Set the look off with some emeralds (costume jewelry will do) and you’ve mastered the red carpet look!
The Finishing Touches
The right red carpet dress requires the right finishing touches. Soft, causal curls dominated and are an easy choice for red carpet hair. Tomato red lips stood out on Claire Danes and Christina Hendricks, but if you aren’t that daring, opt for a nude pink with light smoky eyes. Try out a slate grey and forego the liner. Top it off with a pair of strip lashes from the Red Carpet Collection by Glad Lash!
