So the Oscars Award has come and gone but the award’s red carpet styles will continue to linger in our memories. I’m pretty sure fashion enthusiasts around the globe have a couple of looks that they are already planning to ‘steal’ in the nearest future (myself included). Just because every now and then even the most serious professionals want to wear a tux/dress to showcase that inner star.
While it is good to go through the wow motions for celebrity red carpet styles and even move on to stealing these styles for ‘Owambe’ events and all, it’s important to take the styling seriously so one doesn’t end up in the ‘what I saw on the red carpet vs what my tailor sewed for me‘ column (especially at the styling level). So I’ll be sharing a few tips that can help you at worst just replicate the celebrity red carpet looks and at best rock it even better!.
Plan to outdo
I’ve seen a few people rocking head to toe celebrity styles and I have never been impressed, there’s something missing, simply put, the magic of something new. As much as celebrity styles can be an inspiration to look good, I think copy and paste is an insult to the copycat’s fashion intelligence. Come on, add yours! I like to believe there’s no perfect look, there’s always one fashion piece you wish you left out or added. So there always room for owning one aspect of the look or another. Just do your own analysis so you can introduce your own unique piece to the style mix.
Don’t Forget the Little Big Things
Sometimes it’s not just about the pieces worn, the smile, the charisma, the fact that there’s a red carpet underneath, the professional photo, the ambience and location all add to what seemingly looks like a celebrity stepping out in a particular outfit. And the only reason why you want to cop it is because everything has come together to make that fab look you saw on the gram. So don’t just wear the look, finish off with the right mix and most importantly, the power pose!
