Award season is on. How amazing to start the year with it! Watching all those actresses, actors, directors, musicians, artists that make us dream big thanks to their work, walking on the red carpets… Mmmmm… It is so inspiring and exciting. The fashion, glamour, the attitude and pizzazz involved in the award season always leave everyone simply wanting for more.
So, here some of the early fashion and style highlights to consider and absorb in this everyday runway we called life from the early 2016's red carpets…
I strongly believe that style and fashion today is all about looking true to our personal essence… While we all have to work on looking the best version of ourselves, we must pay attention to never overdo it and to stay away from appearing pretentious. MESSY HAIR, well thought and done of course; is a total go-for now; and we can see how the most gorgeous ladies and gentlemen on the red carpet are very committed to it.
AU NATUREL MAKE-UP
In the same line of thought about looking our honest, non-pretentious selves; the look-like AU NATUREL MAKE-UP (obviously far from careless) is another winner style inspiration. It is definitely a key reminder that it is all about highlighting our gifts!
Though the jewelry stars wear on the red carpet are mostly lent just for the soirée (while security guards keep an eye on every move the lucky wearers make); we are not seeing over-the-top, extremely exaggerated jewelry anymore. Clearly, today it has to do with STRATEGIC JEWELRY pieces that accompany the personality of the celebrities and their lovely dresses and tuxedoes. Take note!
SHOW A LITTLE SKIN
Either through cut-outs, sheer fabrics, beading or lace; to SHOW A LITTLE SKIN has become one of the favorite A-lister ladies’ way to embrace their femininity, body and long-list of qualities; just like ours, by the way! It is not time to be shy, but to be proud of what we’ve got and ‘être bien dans notre peau’ for real!
The red carpet is the perfect place where it is proven over and over that no matter what people wear; if they do not OWN THEIR LOOKS the magic does not appear nor flow. The lesson here is that we must wear what pleases us and what make us feel and look real, even if it is ‘the real us’ of our greatest dreams.
LEARN TO LAUGH
Life is not perfect, nor always the way we plan; therefore dressing up cannot be taken too seriously. Fashion and style should always be and feel fun and joyful. So, if any mishap (let’s say a run on a seam, for example) gets on our way; we can take it as a lesson; learn to laugh at your perfectly-imperfect self, while try to solve every situation creatively and always with humor!
LIFE IS RUNWAY!
