Is the red carpet inspired by bridal, or bridal inspired by red carpet? Some of Hollywood’s hottest stars, yes I am talking about you Kristen Bell – or should I say Anna, rocked a seemingly “bridal” inspired look at the 2014 Oscars, which means perfect pickings for some bridal gown inspiration.
These ladies are the epitome of class and elegance so it is no surprise that they are flaunting beautiful bridal inspired gowns. Although they may not exactly resemble the traditional ball gown or mermaid “bridal” styles, these elegant gowns are great starting point to see what style you like.
Kristen Bell looked like a Disney princess in a corseted white Roberto Cavalli gown and you can steal her look as easily as Kristoff stole Anna’s heart. To become your own Disney princess, look for a slight mermaid style dress with a beautiful, lush textured bottom. With the bottom of the dress stealing the show, keep the corset simple with a softer texture or minimal beading.
Gowns like that of Maria Menounos and Naomi Watts bring back the timelessness of a simple cap-sleeve, figure-flattering dress. The style is simple yet sophisticated, and easy to execute. Slap on some bright red lipstick and throw your hair in a simple up-do and you are ready to go.
Now, this is Hollywood, so some of the dresses are a little sexier or a little different than you would expect from a traditional bridal store. Have no fear, you can still rock the gown. Kate Hudson’s Atelier Versace is absolutely stunning and her look can be replicated with a satin, body hugging dress that has a little ruching around the middle and gorgeous sleeves.
You can duplicate the stunning Paolo Sebastian champagne colored tulle ball gown Giuliana Rancic rocked at the 2014 Oscars by simply finding a ball gown with a floral decorated corset with skinny straps. The delicacy of the top wil; match perfectly with the soft flowing tulle bottom.
