Red carpet dresses are the envy of nearly every single woman on this planet! Maybe it is just because we always see them on our beloved celebrities, but they always seem so glamorous and wonderful. They come in so many different shapes and colours and often carry a designer label though, making them seem unobtainable to all of us who aren’t carrying that illusive celebrity status!
What is it that defines red carpet dresses?
Besides the fact that you see the celebrities wearing them at awards presentations, red carpet dresses can really be any sort of dress. They are not restricted at all by colour, ranging from pastels, to white and black to bold colours such as red and blue. Sometimes the brave even wear metallic colours such as purple! Celebrities also do not keep their dresses as simple as one colour, but splurge into fabulous patterns
Red carpet dresses are not restricted by length either. They range from full length to shin length, knee length, just above the knee and even the mini dress! Their outlines vary dramatically from the full hour glass, to strapless, strapped, a-line, halter-neck and the one shouldered red carpet dresses. Dresses can also be tight (seemingly almost a part of the body), free flowing or even a mixture of both such as the baby doll dress.
The dresses are anything but dull and boring especially with all the embellishments they have. This can include attached flowers, ruffles, lace, sheer sections, sequins, ribbons, jewels and pleating. And of course the clincher for the dress itself includes the accessories, such as hairdos, jewellery, the purses and of course the shoes! Basically as you can see from the pictures, there is no definition as to what constitutes red carpet dresses.
