Red Carpet Style

The red carpet season has arrived.  The Golden Globes, Oscars and Emmys bring us high fashion via celebrities and the “It Girls” of Hollywood.   It is hard not to find a headline about the best and worst dressed at these glamorous events.  This is a chance for fashion designers and personal stylists to shine by sharing some of their signature looks or new fashion forward trends and colors.  If you really want to get the 4-1-1 you can even watch entire episodes of Fashion Police to find out why a red carpet look worked well or didn’t make the cut.  Bottom line, the best dressed looks always have 3 key elements; an amazing fit, a complimentary color, and classic style.  The good news is you can borrow couture gowns for your upcoming special occasions, just like most celebrities.  My go-to online retailer for special occasion dresses is Rent The Runway.  The 2nd size option and customer reviews based on your body shape allow you to find the perfect designer dress without losing valuable closet real estate for  your everyday wardrobe.   Here is one of my favorite Rent the Runway dresses worn last season.
