>Red Carpet Inspiration

1 Mar

>Oh! The Oscars… the only event other than your wedding to which it is considered acceptable to turn up wearing a train. It was one of the most perfect red carpets we have ever seen last night, with star after star shining in swoon-worthy and stunning couture. Two trends reigned: Purple Passion and Whisper White. Here are some of our favourites… *sigh* so beautiful!

Purple Passion: from creamy lilac to lavendar lace, lush plum satin and maroon lace, purple reigns as a regal power colour…

Whisper White: The perfect choice to convey innocence, purity and perfection. When you want to shine, you do it in white…

    >Hi Grace, this gown shape is called a "Ballerina Style" and is characterised primarily by the midcalf length and full skirt. We agree, very elegant and sweet!
