Red carpet fashion refers to the outfits worn on the red carpet at high profile gala celebrity events such as award ceremonies and film Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Árboles Hojas Rojas 3 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES. 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. Despite the publicity given to award ceremonies, other red-carpet events such as the Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Árboles Mariposa Flores 2 Paisaje Fondo Pansize-hosted Met Ball also have a significant impact on the fashion world.

Prior to the 1990s, many celebrities chose their own red-carpet dresses, with the Oscars being remembered for some extraordinary and eccentric outfit choices, including torn denim, sequinned jumpsuits and even Indian headdresses.For ceremonies such as the Golden Globes, it was rare to see a star dressing up formally until the late 1990s, with many nominees turning up casually dressed.When Halle Berry came to the 2000 ceremony in a glamorous white Valentino dress, it was described as a game-changer which set the standard for Golden Globe red carpet style, and according to Phillip Bloch, her stylist at the time, “began the time when a dress could actually make a career.” Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Bonito Ramo De Tulipán 2 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeThe increasing dependence on fashion stylists was something that had emerged since the 1990s, leading to criticism that red carpet fashion, particularly at the Oscars, now appears “bland and homogeneous”, following a model of “discreetly elegant gowns, softly swept-up hairdos and lots of diamond jewellery”. The stylist’s role is to try to ensure that the client only receives positive publicity for her appearance and is not featured on ‘worst-dressed’ lists.

In 2004, The New York Times, asking “Does the glamour of the Golden Globes steal the scene from Oscar?”, observed that the wider range of potential nominees of the “younger, hipper” Globes, from television as well as film, offered designers more opportunity to have their work featured on the red carpet.Unlike the Oscars, nominees for the Golden Globes and other events are under less pressure to choose an expensive, one-of-a-kind haute couture gown, which is also easier for the designers who can offer samples from their latest ready-to-wear lines. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Bosque Nieve Amanecer 2 Paisaje Fondo De PansizeOne of the most widely publicised and talked-about red-carpet gowns was a ready-to-wear green Versace gown worn by Jennifer Lopez to the 42nd Grammy Awards ceremony on February 23, 2000.

Having a dress featured on the red carpet, particularly one that attracts media attention, is very important to a designer, with Carmen Marc Valvo saying in 2000:

“The dollar return of having some celebrity shot in your dress is worth a fortune, more than a five-page spread in Vogue or Harper’s Bazaar that only appears once. That same image can be blasted repeatedly in newspapers and magazines across the country and around the world. That is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.”

A year after Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Árboles Pintados A Mano 2 Paisaje Fondo Pansize wore one of his dresses to the 2002 Oscars, designer Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Árboles green Césped 00 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize said:

Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Caballo De Anime Cool 23 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize“I can’t possibly quantify how much publicity I got from that or how much money I made. And now, every time anyone writes about her they use the picture of her in the dress and so it just goes on and on.”

This strategy is not without risk, as a designer may invest major labour and time into creating a unique dress (which could cost up to $100,000) for a celebrity, only to have their investment wasted when the star decides at the last moment to wear someone else’s dress. Particularly high-profile celebrities are often loaned dresses by several different designers for the ceremony, meaning that the designer often does not know until the night whether his or her dress was chosen to receive the much-desired exposure. In addition, they run the risk of never getting the dress back, rejected or not.Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Callejón Calles Trolley 235 Paisaje Fondo Pansize The choice for a designer may also be whether to dress one actress for the Oscars, or design an entire ready-to-wear collection.

When the 65th Golden Globe Awards ceremony was cancelled and replaced with a press conference as a result of a writer’s strike which also threatened the Oscars, this was also seen as a threat to the fashion industry. Not only were established designers under threat, but the opportunity for up-and-coming designers to achieve widespread recognition through red-carpet exposure of their designs was severely limited.In 2008, a number of events, including the threat of an actor’s strike that would have led to cancellation of the 2009 Oscar ceremony, and an upcoming star-studded presidential inauguration had a visible effect on Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Arcos Jardín De Lavanda 2 Paisaje Fondo Pansize. Many stars dressed for the Globes in unique couture gowns that they might otherwise have reserved for the Oscars.

Don’t be discouraged! When you give your inner style queen a little bit of room to breath you’ll find she’s alive and kicking and has lots to say for herself. So here are a few easy steps to take to give her that room.

1. Make an effort – It sounds simple but there’s a huge number of people who get up in the morning, reach for what ever is clean and that’s it. Style takes effort. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Campo De Flores Amarillas 3 Paisaje Fondo PansizeEvery morning make an effort to reach for the ‘best’ outfit you can put together, whatever your day holds. Take the time and effort to put together a suitable, comfortable outfit that shows you’ve put thought and effort into what you’re wearing.

2. Grooming – You’re going to find it hard to present a stylish image if your hair needs a cut, your makeup’s stuck in the 80’s which handily is the last time your eyebrows were plucked. Again, you don’t need to go to extremes with this, personally I hate fussing with my hair, but being unkempt is not an option. Tame those eyebrows, get a good haircut – regularly! – and keep your nails trimmed. If you’re not a great fan of makeup then invest in some good skincare products and a tinted moisturizer. It’s all about your attitude and it should be “I care about me.”

3. Care for your clothes – You’ve got your favorite jumpsuit stashed somewhere haven’t you. Or maybe it’s your favorite shirt which now has the big stain on the back. It’s sad, devastating in fact, but they have to go. The clothes you wear need to be hole free, wrinkle free, spot free, smell free and above all else, clean.Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Cara Abstracta 132 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ES AJ

4. Forget size, fit is king – The key element of dressing with style is fit. Don’t buy clothes that are a size too small because you’re going to loose weight. Don’t buy clothes that are a size too big because you think you’re too fat. Both will make you look bigger than what you are. Clothes that fit are instantly slimming and always chic, be it a jeans and t shirt or a lPapel Pintado Mural De Vellón Arte De Flores bluees 2 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize.

5. Flatter your shape – Whatever your size or shape there is a cut that flatters you more than others, just as there will be those cuts that will never in a million years work for you. Learn what they are. Slavishly go with the first and pretend the second doesn’t even exist. Forget trends. Never get sucked into the ‘latest it thing’.

Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Casa De Lagos Cisnes 23 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize6. Accessories are everything – Accessories are the icing on the cake, the shine on the diamond, the alcohol in your favorite adult beverage. Without them the world will still turn but it’s a much sadder and less bright place. With the right accessories even the most banal outfit can be transformed into a stylish comment about you. Incidentally accessories are a great place to start changing your look.

7. Shoes are not just an accessory – Shoes are of the utmost importance to an outfit and they should good quality – you can dress up practically anything else but a cheap shoe looks like a cheap shoe. Buy the best that you can afford. Go for different shapes, colors and styles. The more shoes you have the more outfits you can construct. And, yes, some of them will need to be heels.

8. Keep shopping – Looks change, makeup changes, hair styles change and of course fashion changes at the speed of light. There is no necessity to keep up with the trends but a great wardrobe is going to be a mix of timeless classics and modern fabrics, colors and styles. Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Castillo De Iglesia 3 Paisaje Fondo De Pansize ESRegularly clean out your closet getting rid of anything old or that you haven’t worn in a while, or possibly at all and replace them with modern items. BUT, keep all your classics or those things that make you look fabulous and have a copy made from it’s carcase when it passes on.

9. Steal the best looks – Always keep your eyes open for an outfit or look that totally screams style and is somehow just… you, be it on tv, movies, on the street, your boss, your sister, your best-est friend in the whole wide world, and then ruthlessly steal it. Be sure you adapt it to flatter your shape and coloring but then wear it with pride. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and no one, but no one with even a modicum of style got that way on their own.

10. Take some risks – Try something different for you. I’m not suggesting that you suddenly decide you’re going to dress like the latest ‘it girl’, but maybe you could wear a sequined top to work, or jeans and t shirt with a string of pearls or maybe a hat of some description. Something outside of your comfort zone. Something funky and fun. OK, it may end up a shameful memory, but more than likely it will pass in a blur of nobody-even-noticed, and it’s always possible you’ll find out something new an amazing about yourself, and that is what Papel Pintado Mural De Vellón Atardecer Flores Campo 2 Paisaje Fondo Pansize ES is all about.
