Hi all! I’m still pinching myself for having attended the Globes and the party and seeing the stars. The evening is magical yet surreal, like watching it on TV except we are there. For this occasion, I knew I wanted to wear something with gold color and I’ve probably tried on a dozen or more dresses before settling down to 3 finalists amongst which is a slinky, backless number from Badgley Mischka, a strapless sequin tulle gown from Amsale, and this DVF white and gold pleated chiffon gown with high slit. Ultimately I went with the DVF dress because I feel that it fits my style the most and I am comfortable and at ease wearing this gown. It is not too tight such that I couldn’t breath or eat or walk, it flows like a dream when I walk and the subtle gold lily pattern is perfect without overdoing it.
For accessories, if you followed my Snapchat you will see that I was so torn between my Manolo white pumps and nude high heel sandals, they both look great but since the dress has a high slit, the nude sandal had a better flow and showcased the length of the legs more. I know the price tag on the sandal is steep, but you can find similar sandals from Stuart Weitzman for half the price or this almost exact replica steal from Steve Madden for only $80!! I found this gold clutch for a great price to compensate the shoes (I need to find a balance somewhere right?) and chandelier earrings from Nina to complete the look. I didn’t wear any necklace as I feel the neckline should be simple with the dramatic chandelier earrings. Bold red lips is always a great idea for red carpet so wearing my favorite lip color from YSL to give it an old Hollywood look.
Do you guys like this look I wore to the red carpet? I really want to know 🙂 What would you wear if you were to attend a major red carpet event?
