If you're contemplating prom dresses and need some celeb inspiration, look no further than the fabulous Amal Clooney at the Golden Globes. Her floor-length, one-shoulder black gown cut such an standout swathe on the red carpet. Combined with classic makeup and chic white opera gloves, she was definitely the belle of the ball!
Which you can be, too! When you're considering which dress to select for this very special event, here are some helpful hints and guidelines to keep in mind:
Comfort first: Sure, that short little bodycon number looks super sexy, but you're going be doing a lot of dancing, eating, socializing, flirting...so the last thing you need is your dress distracting you. Pick something you can see yourself spending a loooonng evening in - comfortably.
Look like yourself: There's a lot of buildup and anticipation for prom, which can lead to way too much makeup. You're beautiful as is, so just enhance. When you see the pix later, you'll be glad you used a light touch.
Stick with the classics: As in color and cut. Darker colors look more expensive and timeless silhouettes make for a classy look - both the night of the event and on your Facebook page the next day. And some sparkle is good, but that doesn't mean you want to resemble a human disco-ball. You just don't...trust me.
