We may have worn black dresses a million times, but what is it about their ever-pleasing and never-out-of-style appeal that keeps us coming back to them when we want to party? If you, like us, aren’t tired of the concept of sporting dresses, especially the strapless ones since we like it hot, let us convince you to clean out your all-red closet and stock up on black, which appears to be a terrific idea for the season. Let’s see how many double or triple-takes you can get in the week between Christmas and New Year’s.
Whether you have a traditional gown in mind or not, there are a few styling ideas that may make even the most basic combination appear its best and most beautiful. You’ll discover your reasons to be completely obsessed with the party life below, ranging from Hollywood to Bollywood beauty. Thanks to this celebrity-approved edit’s saviour.
1. Angelina Jolie
Let’s begin with the 46-year-old beauty who has been praised for her flawless red carpet appearance. Angelina Jolie looked stunning in a velvet strapless Atelier Versace gown that was voluminous and featured a well-integrated belt. The thigh-high slit dress also had an asymmetrical neckline, and finishing it off with peep-toe shoes was a brilliant choice.
2. Kareena Kapoor
Kareena Kapoor Khan’s Shantanu and Nikhil gown, designed by the queen of avant-garde looks, is not for the faint of heart. Take a look at the leather belt, which screams affection, and appreciate the attention to detail. Wear the body-hugging gown with sunglasses for a fierce look.
3. Tara Sutaria
Tara Sutaria’s hallmark style is all about white, but seeing her in black is as beautiful as it gets. With the flare, she looked stunning in a Marmar Halim gown with a thigh-high slit and a thigh-high slit. With pointed-toe embellished shoes, she looked party-ready.
4. Deepika Padukone
On the one hand, we see ourselves bundled up in winter-appropriate attire, and on the other, there’s Deepika Padukone, who is heating things up twice as much and in a big way. The 35-year-old chose Yanina Couture’s deep v-neckline gown for an award ceremony. She made another statement with the textured and ruffled tulle hand accessories while her thin form was on display. Her earrings and necklaces followed suit, maintaining a high level of elegance.
5. Dakota Johnson
Corset gowns are all the rage, and we hope you’ve already begun your quest for all things oomph. That is to say, Dakota Johnson’s strapless gown, which she wore to the Toronto International Film Festival, is a fashionista’s dream. She looked like a modern-day princess in this Dior gown, which featured a structured bodice that was partially laced with sheer and a tiered tulle that opened with charm. Choose a simple necklace to complete your ensemble, and you’ll look as magical as ever.
6. Hailey Beiber
When the internet goes down every now and again, know that Hailey Bieber is to blame. Her costumes don’t take long to make a statement, and her black gown with a hint of quirkiness for the Met Gala 2021 looked brilliant gold. Nobody likes a too-often-seen, too-often-done neckline, but this Saint Laurent gown with its curved neckline and dazzling embellishments looked stunning. A change that we may all benefit from.
7. Alia Bhatt
Whoever said this is the season to glitter had Alia Bhatt’s Ralph & Russo corset gown in mind. We can’t choose between the flares, sweetheart neckline, embellishments, satin ribbons, and the floor-sweeping train. What a lovely lady!
