My Salon/business manager/fellow writer/blogger/fashion lover, Casey (we are still working on her title) and I had the pleasure of attending this event last night. We were blown away with the dresses! Hundreds of perfectly dressed women flocked each room the gala was held in. We did all we could not to stare obsessively at our favorite choices! We decided to choose our favorite 5 looks of the evening and share them with all of you! All the women looked beautiful and did such a great job at putting their looks together. These 5 gorgeous ladies took it to another level with not only their dress choices, but accessories, hair and makeup. Looks that made us stop in our tracks and say ughhhhhhhh I love that dress! So without further adieu, we present to you Holly Ball's Top 5 Fashion Obsessions!
When this gorgeous lady walked past me, her look completely took my breath away! OMG Hands down my favorite look of the eve. Not only is the dress absolutely exquisite with it's sheer top and on trend ruffle skirt, but it's red! And we all know I'm a sucker for a red dress, specially at a holiday party! What takes this gorg dress to another level is her perfect styling of it. Her long hair is beautiful and choosing to wear it loose and sexy was a perfect choice! She keeps her accessories simple but finished looking to complement the dress but not pull focus away from this red stunner! This dress could easily wear the person, but this fierce momma of 5 shows us that she most defiantly is the one wearing the dress.
All that glitters is most certainly gold! Does it get anymore holiday glamour than a floor length gold sparkling number? It screams Marilyn Monroe with it's curve hugging Old Hollywood look. It's perfection! This fair hair beauty styles her locks perfectly with a modern Marilyn wave. Minimal jewelry let the dress do the talking. She said to us, "Yes! I knew this dress would pay off" It sure did my dear! Absolutely fabulous!
A sleek velvet cut out dress! Whaaaaaat?!! We pretty much died when this stunningly classy women in this hot style past us! We actually spent a bit of time trying to find her again, as no other velvet dress could compare! As I listed in my Perfect Holiday Party Looks post, velvet is a super hot trend this season, as well as cut out detailing. What made us go really crazy though, was her dark stockings, side slit, and ballroom-isqe shoes! She looks like she may start doing the Tango at any moment! Does it get any tastefully sexier than that? Let me answer that for you, no it does not!
This scorching red BCBG dress is seriously on fire. This dress is defiantly not for the weak, and this gorgeous girl pulled it off confidently! The fit is impeccable, her dark hair and smoky eye compliment it perfectly. The cut out pattern in the back gives it a dramatic flair, but the sheer fish tail hem is what made me obsessed.
The ever so classic, LBD! Always a classic choice, and I love the sexy simplicity of one. I'm crazy over the ruffle detail at this bust. What takes this blonde bombshells look from fab to top 5 is her styling. This is a perfect example of impeccable styling choices. Everything from her chic holiday inspired red satin shoes to her touch of sparkle clutch to her perfectly paired and polished sexy Victoria's Secret hair and makeup. The finishing time this stunning beauty took is apparent and it makes her look stand out from the rest.
As always, I hope I inspired you!
