The hottest look from this year’s red carpet comes in the form of colorful, beaded dresses, like the ones seen here. Blake Lively, New York’s hottest fashionista rocked the look at Fashion Week. Lively wore a flapper inspired dress to the “Set In Style: The Jewelry of Van Cleef & Arpels” event at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, rocking the unique bright orange fringe. With its one-of-a-kind beading and unique pattern, this dress made Lively not only blend in with, but also stand out from the fashionable crowd. The tribal flair of this dress gives Lively an inspired style, not far from the daring looks sported daily by Serena van der Woodson. Paired with bare hair and makeup and subtle nude heels, the actress let the dress speak for itself with a classically simple look. For more of this look, try out this dress by Just Cavalli.
Diane Kruger wore a stunning adaptation of this look on the red carpet this past week to the premier of her latest film “Unknown” at the Berlin International Film Festival. With its bold purple shade, this Chanel dress was bound to turn heads and the metallic beading really helped Kruger stand out from the crowd. The belted empire waste and purple silk also give Diane a taste of the majestic beauty she’s known to exhibit on screen, with a fun and flirty twist. The varied length of the gown’s hem also helps take the dress from ordinary to extraordinary. Paired with black and gold strappy-heals, Kruger made this look one for the books by simply accessorizing this standout dress. For a similarly bold purple patterned dress, try this one from Chloe.
With beads and bright colors, these gowns are perfect for a fresh red carpet look and can make the perfect addition to every girl’s newest spring wardrobe.
