This year’s Oscars were full of great red carpet moments. Loved many of the dresses and the tuxes (oh-my-God-Billy-Porter!) and the jewelry… Although all those things I am never gonna have the chance to wear, one thing that I could is this stunning makeup worn by the gorgeous Gemma Chan. It is a simple, elegant cat eye with a dash of green on it. It looks stunning.
Next night out occasion I am definitely try that makeup!
Because you don’t have to look at the Golden Globes or any Red Carpet event only for gown inspirations. You can have a look at it and get inspiration to your every day life, day to night. How? Paying attention to the event’s trends and singling them out. Just like that:
Colorblock of the night: black and white.
Major colors: white, shades of red, blue, nude, pink, soft shades in general. Black still that safe option.
The dress color worn somewhere else in the look: hair, make up, a purse… evoking an all-(pick your color) look. Ish.
Ballgowns, with full skirts Cinderela like.Pants as a dress bottom or as a tuxedo.
Long sleeve dresses (great options for a gown in the cold season).
Plunging V necklines.
Cape dress or as a sleeve.
Ballgown, Cinderela like.
Velvet. Whole gown or in details.
Bow as a detail.
Those were a few trends from this year Golden Globe Awards. And from that list you can reach for pieces like that and wear them in your real life. Some things would be better to sport on an evening, at a party or a night out to celebrate something, but others can be inserted in your daily life like a color (red) or a shade of color, a detail (like a velvet belt or a bow) and so on.
But still, if what you want is gown inspirations, literally… there are very often some options way more down to earth so we, non celebrities, can wear more comfortably among what came up in the Red Carpet such as:
Which one or ones to pick? Well, it will all depend on your style, taste and feel good factor.
A good tip from one of the attendees, Jameela Jamil from The Good Place (love that show and Jameela) that I want to register here: wear under your gown a skinny jeans or a jean legging to keep your legs warm when the weather is cold. Okay, she took care of her legs and obviously forgot her top since she wore a strapless gown. But in real life you don’t have to. You can wear a jacket or a shawl or a long sleeve dress for that matter.

As a Personal Stylist if there is one thing that I love to do when I see the runway photos is to guess which of those looks will make to the upcoming Red Carpet Season. And checking the Reem Acra Pre-Fall 2019 collection, those 5 looks made my list.
Who would wear each? Well, the first one, in soft blue, Emily Blunt or perhaps Amy Adams. The second I would guess Constance Wu. The third, Rachel Brosnahan, minus the neck bow. The blue one I would say Tilda Swinton or Meryl Streep. The last one with the long sleeves, maybe Nicole Kidman?
And how about you? Who do you think would wear those gowns?
