I couldn’t help thinking about how did these dresses EVEN got on the Red Carpet. Two dynamic talents, but the dresses are not -IMO. Thoughts?
I will let you in on a secret. I truly love watching awards shows and all the glitter and glamour that USUALLY surrounds the evening. This was NOT the case Sunday night with these two fine actresses. Both so very talented, but what were they thinking? or not? It didn’t matter what they wore, no one would care or notice? YIKES! ladies this had to be the worst two outfits I have seen in a long time. Wrong, on so many levels not sure where to start. I hope Frances and Whoppi take a good long look at these pics and perhaps consider hiring professionals next time they hit the Red Carpet. Before any important night in your life seek help. I totally GET eccentric and expressive. I was a costume designer for many years. Onward and upward…

If you want your bridesmaids to remain your friends…
consider their age, shapes, and skin tones when choosing color. Coral and teal work on just about everyone, so I suggest starting there. A good way to approach style is to let the girls pick their best silhouette and keep the dresses in the same color. With so many gowns in the stores, you don’t even have to use a traditional bridesmaid dress manufacturer. Your friends will be happier too, since most likely they will be able to wear the dress again.
Also, be aware of the fabric you choose. I always try to avoid sweltering in heavy fabrics in the middle of summer or freezing in chiffon in the winter. Remember, to think about accessories including a wrap. If your bridesmaids will thank you if they are worried about exposing their arms. If you are in a area that gets chilly at night, wouldn’t you rather see a pretty pashmina than something that is the wrong color and style on your special friends? Don’t forget some type of small clutch or evening bag to complete the look. Perhaps it can be their gift for sharing in your special day
