The entertainment industry awards season is underway and don’t we love viewing the gorgeous red carpet fashion from the most exclusive designers in the world on our favourite celebrities?
The clothes worn to award events such as the Oscars and the Golden Globes consistently receive intense worldwide media scrutiny, making their red carpets an international product placement area of great importance to fashion designers.
So much work goes on behind the scenes to make the beautiful designer dresses; some can take 6 months or more to make and are worth thousands of dollars.
Here are some celebrity dresses from recent award ceremonies with similar looks we have created from pieces available at David Jones:
Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley looked sensational at the Golden Globes in a black Yves Saint Laurent dress featuring a modest thigh high split and 90s inspired halter neck cut along with an oversized leather waist belt.
Here we have the gorgeous Camilla and Marc Correlation Backless dress, which has a sophisticated approach to the season’s sheer trend, the Correlation Backless Dress features a high neckline, pleated bodice and stunning leg veil. Matched with the stunning Lipstik Benny High Heel T-bar Sandal With Gold Hardware. Perfect for dinner and black tie events.
Homeland star Claire Daines is a constant on the Best Dressed on the Red Carpet list (seen below in Armani Prive at the 2010 Emmy Awards), sequins and sequined gowns have made a “comeback” of sorts. These gowns have simple figure-hugging silhouettes and little detail–other than the fabulously hand-beaded sequins, of course.
We love this stunning Rachel Gilbert Piper strapless sequin gown. Saturated with shimmering silver and gold sequins, Rachel Gilbert’s Poper Gown will make an elegant impression at your next formal event. The boned internal bodice provides support and allows you to go bra-free. This stunning dress requires beautiful heels and you cannot go past a pair of Jimmy Choo’s for pure elegance. Below are the Jimmy Choo Mocha Glitter Fabric Dorsay Sandal. Featuring a mirrored heel and a glitter sprayed front, this patent leather pair from Jimmy Choo are sure to make an impression after dark.
Last years Screen Actors Guild awards (SAG) showcased a love of navy on the red carpet. Jennifer Lawrence’s Christian Dior Haute Couture, so elegant in it’s simplicity, was one of the best examples.
Here we have chosen the grecian style Mr K Long Chiffon dress with Satin Underbust Pleating. Basic elegance and style never goes out of date and we are sure you will wear this dress over and over again. To give the simplicity of the dress some attention we added statement accessories with a pop of colour. We love these Diavolina Jasper T-bar High Heel Sandal With Gold Heel (also available in Black) matched with the Gregory Ladner Amelie Glomesh clutch.
As we mentioned before, Claire Danes can do no wrong on the red carpet and looked amazing in this red halter neck dress by Versace.
The Mr K Chiffon Halter Dress will turn heads at your next special occasion especially when teamed with the Tony Bianco Asara High Heel Sandal With Chain On Ankle Strap.
