We've seen this spring trend emerge on various red carpets. Baring your back can be sexy and elegant, and adding fine details like beaded trim gives it a touch of glam without going overboard.
Tip: Keep jewelry and hair natural and understated
Model Jessy Shellard:
Flamenco flair is the best way to show your personality! Bright colors and prints are plain old fun! It adds a flirtatious and youthful element to your look. Tip: Prints and pattern look best of slim figures, while monochromatic dresses tend to be more slimming.
Model Madeline Perchigan
If you prefer a cocktail dress to evening wear, go with the shorter dress, which can be glammed up with elegant jewelry
Model Elizabeth Johnston
Shimmer like the stars! If color is not your thing, go for silver, gold or copper tones to be a sure hit! These neutrals compliment any skin tone.
Tip: Pick one statement piece of jewelry like a stunning bracelet or drop earrings, and be sure to keep your make-up and hair natural to offset all the shine.

After the Hollywood Awards season, you are ready to look and feel like your favorite celebrity. Get your inspiration directly from the Red Carpet with a one shoulder look, a high split dress, or a mermaid shape. Tip: Stick to one trend, don't try and mix too many different looks.
