The Perfect outfit for a Red Carpet/Formal Event

Sunday, March 20, 2016

With the Oscars in our rear view and the awards season almost over, it's funny how the spotlight seems to always be on the beautiful ladies of Hollywood. Why is it that the men seem to get overshadowed by the beautiful gowns and gorgeous makeup and hairstyles? They too have put in time and effort to find that right suit, and always if not every time they come out looking dapper.

Also coming up, is Prom - YES I know it's still a few months yet, but hey, it's the time of the year where I seem to be banning a few students' internet connections during my computing lessons due to the browsing of suit and gown online stores. If the kids at school are already searching for that perfect suit and gown, I guess it won't hurt if I did a blog post about formal style inspirations.

Whether you're after a laid back look or the full monty, the perfect Formal/Red Carpet outfit is all that matters. The gowns I have included may not be purse friendly, but the suits however are more than affordable. Below are some different looks I've put together from The Black Tux and Polyvore to give you some Hollywood style inspiration.

The "Bond" Look

If it's James Bond you're after then nothing says Spectre like The Newman Outfit (avg £138/$200) and this Gorgeous gown from Zac Posen.

The "Smooth" Look

If you think of yourself as a smooth operator (haha) with a bit of flair then The Velvet Jacket Tuxedo (avg £86/$125) is right up your alley. This was paired with a gown by Mugler.

The "Mr. Grey" Look

If velvet is not your thing then this neutral ensemble The Whitman Outfit (avg £134/$195) would be a good choice. As a contrast I thought this red McQueen gown would go well.

The "Royal Alternative" Look

Who said royal blue isn't just as chic as black? Daniel Craig did it justice in Skyfall so The Midnight Blue Tuxedo (avg £80/$120) is the one to choose if you are someone oozing with confidence. This I accompanied with what has got to be my favourite dress out of all 4 outfits by Zac Posen - simply perfection.
