This post was updated May 14, 2021.
Award season is a much-needed fashion distraction and simultaneous inspiration. As celebrities walk down the red carpets, there are plenty of “oohs, ahhs, and what the hell were they thinking’s!” Oftentimes, current bridal trends originate on the red carpet. For that reason, we’ve compiled a list of six celebrity red carpet looks that can be reinterpreted for your wedding day look!
Look #1: Soft A-Line Silhouette in Pastels
The soft A-line silhouette translates so well into bridal especially if you’re looking for a romantic look. Whether it’s layers of tulle or an all-over pattern, the key is to let the skirt flow. The less crinoline underneath the skirt, the better! When translating this celebrity red carpet look for your wedding day, it’s up to you if you want to go for a bolder look in pastels or stick with white.
Look #2: Full Skirts with a Plunging Neckline
Celebrity red carpet looks with this combination are to die for! The recipe for this look is simple: a sexy plunging neckline (without being over-the-top sexy paired with a full skirt. It’s a modern spin on a classic silhouette. On top of that, voluminous skirts go hand in hand with pockets! To get the same feel on your wedding day, choose a fabric with a little more body. A stiffer fabric means that the skirt will hold its shape better.
Look #3: Jumpsuits!
Who doesn’t love a jumpsuit? While the bridal masses won’t jump on this trend right away (see what I did there), having an overskirt would make that transition a little easier. You could also very easily lean into a menswear-inspired look with a tuxedo stripe down the side of the pant legs. Whether it’s for their ceremony, reception, or rehearsal dinner, a jumpsuit is a great choice!
Look #4: Showing Some Skin
You definitely don’t have to go for the naked look to like a sultry vixen! A thigh-high slit in a beautifully draped dress gives you that glam bombshell look. You can also show a little skin without showing it all. To achieve that, look for carefully placed cutouts.
Look #5: Modesty Meets Texture
High necklines with longer sleeves and simple skirt shapes may not seem like much, but it’s the fabric that transforms the dress. A dress can go from meh to bomb af when you add fabric with a little extra something (aka texture). A dress with all-over beading is edgy, elegant, and chic all at the same time. For a look that’s less sparkly, but that still has texture, lace is your go-to!
Look #6: Impactful Details
Simple dress shapes with impactful details are what make them unique. Whether it’s the thoughtful placement of beading to accent a waistline or a fabric with a bold print, make a statement on your wedding when you pick a bridal style that has an eye-catching detail.
Final Thoughts on Celebrity Red Carpet Looks
Celebrity red carpet looks are a great source of inspiration for your wedding day look. But, they aren’t the end all be all. Take inspiration from your favorite look and add your personal touch. That way you can look as glam as a celebrity and still be 100% true to your unique style.
