Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2012
Ruffles and lace and chiffon…oh my! Romantic style gowns are and have always been a favorite on the red carpet, and with the romantic trend being a big hit for SS 2012, why let the stars have all the fun? There are a TON of ways to romanticize your look, and you can start by getting inspiration from your fav runway and red carpet looks.
All in the Details:
Beyonce, Lily Collins, Leslie Mann, & Diane Kruger at the 2012 Met Ball
Chiffon, lace, ruffles, feathers, bows, nudes, sheers, & flowy fits…all the makings of a romantic gown. These details are a great way to achieve a feminine and delicate look. Still sexy but subdued.
Emmanuelle, Cameron, Taylor, & Jessica are fun and flirty with their side swept curls.
