With the awards season on a fever high, we curate looks from the spring and pre-fall runways that we could only hope would catwalk their way to the red carpet.
Seemingly a celebration of classic Hollywood glamour, this floor-length number was the first among the designer’s arsenal of heavenly gowns. A sense of liquidity and glitter to this ensemble wowed us right off the bat. The dress’ simple sophistication stands out, earning our vote as a potential red carpet stunner.
This Rodarte gown may not fit the mold that has been created as to what “red carpet dressing” is, but we think this is a fabulously commanding ensemble made for the daring fashion darlings of today. The blue and yellow collision make this dress look like a work of art, worthy of museum display.
Although this silhouette is one that has been seen a thousand of times, Lhuillier manages to tantalize courtesy of the flattering ruched bodice and thigh-high slit. The iridescent purple ombré richly adds depth to the stunning ensemble.
Using a color that lures the most attention, Reem Acra crafts a stunning but simple plunging dress. The designer tones down the boldness by adorning the front of the dress with tiny lace insets, while the bare back is also layered with Chantilly lace. The wide-pleated skirt gives the entire look greater depth and movement.
If only elegance is as tangible as this jaw-dropping dress, women would be begging Marchesa for more. Although any designer could overdo anything that has fringe, glitter and skin, the designer royalty pulls in just the right amount to tailor this gown to perfection. A shoo in for a position in the best red carpet look, Marchesa needs only to find the right woman capable of working this look.
