White Evening Gowns

Don't you just love spotting what the celebrities are wearing at the various Red Carpet ceremonies throughout the year? Not only is it so exciting to see what everyone is wearing, it's interesting to see which way the top designers are swaying in terms of colours and styles. At the Golden Globe January 2016 there was a definite bias towards white evening gowns which looked absolutely stunning, so I've compiled a selection from that will have you looking as elegant and on trend as all of those celebs!

American actor and singer Taraji P Henson wore a white, strapless Stella McCartney dress whereas I prefer this one (Social Bridesmaid 8158) below with its more interesting draped detail at the bodice:

Best Actress nominee Saoirse Ronan wore a deep V neck white evening gown from Saint Laurent which was beautifully Grecian in its folds and elegance. If that's the kind of look you'd go for, try this full length, sleeveless chiffon knit dress Alfred Sung D719 with its pretty shirred v-neckline and shirred inset midriff. It has a low squared off back with inset floor length streamers for extra glamour:

The wonderful Lily James wowed the stargazers in her floaty, halter neck Marchesa gown. For a similarly dramatic look, try Alfred Sung's D720 in chiffon knit, with its twist halter detail, shirred midriff, and daringly low v-back - so Hollywood!

Also up as a nominee in the Best Actress category was the fabulous Swedish actress and dancer Alicia Vikander for her role in The Danish Girl. Her bib collar Louis Vuitton dress was delicate and demure from the front but suitably fun at the back! So if you'd like a white evening gown that will make you look like butter wouldn't melt in your mouth when you walk into the room, but wonderfully sexy as you leave, this After Six 6740 could be the frock for you! The full length, sleeveless crepe dress oozes elegance with its seamed bodice and inset waistband. However its open back and trumpet skirt show that you are no pushover!

So if you are invited to a Red Carpet event this year, get your white evening gown from Dessy and go for the Haute Couture look at a fraction of the price. And if you're actually up for one of the awards, do let me know which dress you're choosing!
