If you think all those celebrity red carpet looks are totally off limits, think again! The trends that the stars trot out can easily transition from red carpet to reality. The key is to focus on the elements of the look that work for you, your figure, and your own style personality. To prove it, we’re sharing 10 of the top red carpet looks that you can totally try at home — for your next dress-to-impress occasion.
1. Glamour gal
Old Hollywood glamour continues to be one of the most endearing and enviable red carpet looks to stand the test of time. Classic allure comes in many shapes and sizes, but one of the most dramatic are dresses inspired by Christian Dior’s New Look of the ’40s and ’50s; a romantic era of renewed extravagance and a celebration of the feminine form.
Kirsten Dunst embodied that exact fashion aura at the 2017 Academy Awards with her Christian Dior couture gown. One of the most effortless ways you can recreate an Old Hollywood glam look is by echoing this silhouette — focus on a frock that nips in at the waist and explodes into a bigger ball skirt. Then, paint on a red lip and style your locks into finger waves and you’re all set for a glamorous entrance.
