Red Carpet Look: The Red DressYou thought that was it, didn't you? You must have thought I forgot. Do you really think I was going to leave you without a proper style post?
No? Aww, you know me too well!
When we got the invitation to that dinner, and the theme was written to be a "Glamorous Night", we were relieved, in a way. Glam night is one of the easiest theme for dinner party. My previous red carpet look was the Old Hollywood Marilyn Monroe style, my Prom Night during my study years. This time around, I felt like wearing a dress with a big silhouette. You know the puffy circle skirt, that I refer to as princess dress when I was a kid. So this was what I put on!
I love to have opportunities to attend red carpet or gala dinner. Well you know, those time you have some fancy outfit idea at the back of your mind, then you wonder to yourself, 'when do I even get to wear that?'. So this kinda events, it gave me a chance to materialize my dream outfit!
Initially, my thought wanders around those of big dresses, in red. I just had to share with you some of my ideas on "the" Red Dress. Here goes the inspiration board....
Don't you just love these dresses? My Red Dress inspiration; Valentino is well known for their iconic Red, Elie Saab for the beautiful embellishment, Dior for their silhouette and of course Dolce & Gabbana for their very royal-Italian detailing.
Well you know me, I'm the kind that put attention to details.
I was so excited to mix and match my outfit!
I wanted the combination of all the inspiration in one. I had a red dress, but it was not in the silhouette I was looking for. You have to be creative, that's why I added that big puffy skirt. Twist it up with a touch of Sarawakian Culture by wearing the traditional belt as clincher, to cinch my waist.
I thought the top part was rather empty, so I accessorize it up with my gold chain. Jewelry to put the glamorous detail on. My Valentino inspired Rockstud gold clutch to match.
For the beauty part, I wanted to keep it classy. If you must know, I kept it minimal. I wanted the palette to compliment my look. The key point was the thin eyeliner, red Blush and of course the Red lipstick to complete it!
Dream outfit came true! Happy as ever!
