Tips for Channeling a Hollywood Goddess in Your Formal Attire

The Hollywood goddess look is once again hot on the red carpet and you can channel that look with a few tips.

Gown style. Hollywood goddess gowns are definitely long, lean and super-sultry! A floor-length sheath dress is your best bet to get the Hollywood glam style, with a body-hugging fabric that shows off your curves. Hourglass figures have a heyday in the Hollywood goddess style, but the look can also work for anyone who is comfortable enough to show off in a form-fitting gown.

A sweetheart neckline rocks on the body-hugging sheath, and you can go strapless or with prominent straps that are part of a sizzling halter. The waist should be fitted and the skirt long and lean, accented with a high, leg-baring slit if you dare!

Accessories. Strappy shoes compliment the goddess look, preferably in a hue that also compliments the dress. Small, beaded clutches can add one more layer of pizzazz; opt for one in a 1940s-era vintage style. Chandelier or other prominent earrings can top off the dazzle, especially if you get them in rhinestones! Forget about the necklace if you go for eye-catching earrings and let your dress’s neckline speak for itself.

Hair. Big, loose curls were the rage for this bygone era, as long as they were contained in a smooth and polished style. Think Marilyn Monroe. Another option is a dramatic upsweep that once again highlights your neckline.

The only other tip is to be read for gads of attention as your enter your prom or big night, as the look has a way of turning heads in your direction!
