As awards season comes to a close, we are left to remember and daydream about the unique trends seen on the red carpet. But you don’t just have to admire and fantasize about the fashion you’ve seen this season. Valley has the best way to merge your everyday style with the most adored red carpet looks from this awards show season.
City of Stars
Emma Stone clenched the Golden Globe, SAG-AFTRA and Oscar for Best Actress and took our breath away each time she graced the red carpet. The Valentino Haute Couture piece left us starry-eyed over the blush undertone and silver stars that ricocheted down the dress. This gown shone almost as brightly as Emma’s stardom. You can capture this trend off the carpet with Urban Outfitter’s Kimchi Blue Corellia Beaded Neck Mini Dress.
At the Oscars, Actress Brie Larson stunned in a black velvet Oscar de la Renta gown that cascaded in ruffles to the floor. Brie was not the only starlet rocking this trend. Taraji P. Henson joined the velvet bandwagon in a navy blue velvet custom Alberta Ferretti dress. The velvet trend was not only seen a lot on the red carpet this year, but has been a big hit just about everywhere. Find a velvet number with a ruffle to add volume and spice up the piece. To mimic this look try Charolette Russe Velvet Cold Shoulder Ruffle Dress.
Beaded and Boujee
Beading strikingly embellishes any ensemble and comes with the guarantee of turning heads anywhere you go. The winner of best beading is a pretty obvious choice. Janelle Monae was splendid and eye-catching in an Elie Saab Couture gown that was in a league of it’s own. With neck to toe beading and tulle hips, Janelle was a walking piece of art. You, too, can glisten with Free People Dali Embellished Dress.
Emma Stone makes our list once again. She glowed in a gold Givenchy Haute Couture gown that draped to the carpet in fringes. The elegant shade of the dress brought out the gold flecks in her hair and the layered fringes stood out from everyone else in the crowd. Jordan Cioppa, a Penn State sophomore, loved the fringe and the way it never goes out of style.
“I loved Emma Stone’s dress. It had that really old-time Hollywood feel,” says Cioppa. “It was timeless and elegant.”
This showgirl-esque trend can be found more and more in stores and not just on the runway. Valley adores the Free People Beaded Fringe Shift Slip.
