Dressing at the Derby

This weekend was the Kentucky Derby! It's one of my favorite fashion days of the year! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the huge hats and classic style.

Even Miss America 2013 was there in one of the very biggest hats! You can't get away from the pageant pose even at the Derby!

While I wouldn't suggest wearing a hat the size of Texas to should definitely consider your hair accessories!

For a classic Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany's look, try and high bun with a small tiara.
You can also try a chic embellished headband to make short hair sassy like Michelle Williams, or to dress up a more simile updo!'
If you are looking for a soft romantic look, try a flower in your hair like Taylor Swift! You can do a a cluster of smaller flowers, some tucked in your updo or braid, or hippie chic with the band around the forehead!

Of course, not all looks require hair accessories. If you love your hair, or are accessorizing with big earrings, a statement necklace, or high embellished neckline, you can skip the accessories in your hair a la Zendaya!

Are you wearing something in your hair? Which look do you like best?

Gorgeous Dancing Gowns

Dancing with the Stars featured some gorgeous gowns on Monday night! From flowing to sexy, they hit every step and we can draw some serious prom inspiration!

Cheryl and DL might have gotten the boot, but it definitely wasn't because of Cheryl's sexy sheer dress! The sheer insets of this dress give you killer curves, and are "va-va-voom" sexy without being too revealing!

To get a similar look like this gorgeous gown from Jovani. Jovani style 762 is sheer in all the right places. This stand out beauty works for prom, and can be worn for years to come at college formals, and more with it's classic black jersey. The stretch in the jersey also makes this gown super comfortable and easy to dance in!

Stunning in pink! 18 year old Dancing Pro Lindsay Arnold picked a prom worthy piece for her dance with Victor Ortiz. The movement on this chiffon gown is just amazing.

To get this look, look for La Femme who has mastered the art of chiffon. La Femme style 17472 is a gorgeous oft pink chiffon prom dress with a heavily beaded bust and small cut outs at the side to keep it from being too sweet. Nothing floats on the dance floor like chiffon!

Loving Lovato

Demi Lovato is releasing a new single ("Heart Attack") this week, and we are reviewing one of our favorite looks from Ms. Lovato that is totally prom worthy!

Demi looks beautiful in this peach Marchesa gown. The updo is soft with just a few tendrils to highlight her face. I love the minimal jewelry, just studs and a thin bracelet, which allows her to shine through.

No one in prom does chiffon prom dresses with a pageant edge like designer Tony Bowls. If you want to get Demi's look, try Tony Bowls Paris Prom Dress Style 113707B! The soft color, the soft fabric, the gathered and beaded waist...this look is pure peach prom perfection!

American County Music Best Dressed Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has great hair. From her beginning with the ringlet curls to her new more sophisticated look. Both Looks are great from prom night, depending on your style, and your dress.

Here Taylor is rocking her signature curls. We love the soft pink of this prom dress paired with the gorgeous romantic curls.

Model Heather Coy wore a similar look in the 2013 Cinderella's Collection, which you can get for prom here.

Or if sleek and sexy is more your style, Taylor came out with great thick bangs and a sleek pony tail at Sunday's ACM Awards. This classic hair style is a perfect pairing for her heavily beaded ornate dress with a lot of back detail.

If you love this look, try 2013 Jovani 5685.

Jennifer Lawerence's Near Wardrobe Malfunction

Our favorite "It Girl" Jennifer Lawerence nearly suffered a wardrobe malfunction on the set of her new movie co-starring the very handsome Bradley Cooper.  Everyone is talking about it! But, I want to talk about her hair! I love this classic glamour girl up-do!

A curled up-do is a favorite choice for prom, and every celebrity EVER has worn an updo on the red carpet. It's just classic chic and from carefully curled and done like Jennifer's (or Taylor Swift, we know she loves a curly updo) to bohemian chic in a deconstructed way, you can't go wrong. Plus, it keeps your hair of your neck making you much cooler on the dance floor without having to worry about sweat ruining your prom hair!

So are you wearing an updo for prom?

While the judges said Aly's waltz was just okay (she scored a 23), we thought her dress choice was prom queen worthy! The perfect mix of sparkle on the bodice and flowing chiffon skirt. The soft blue was also a perfect choice with her dark hair.

If you loved her look as much as we do, then take a look at this gorgeous prom dress by Night Moves! This sexy prom dress is Night Moves Style 6706. We love the delicate beading on the bodice and thin one shoulder strap. The soft chiffon skirt and sexy leg slit will let you dance all night!

Personal Style

Prom is a great opportunity to express your personal style. But, it can be tricky, how to your take your normal t-shirt and jeans style, and take up to Prom worthy? You want to be true to who you are, but also glamorous for prom night. Star Blake Lively embraces her California girl waves and natural make up all the time. She usually looks like this:

But, she has mastered how to go from casual to glam on the red carpet, while keeping her personal style. Here she is at the premiere of Savages. She keeps the waves, just makes them more polished, and adds a sexy red lip while keeping the eye make up soft.

So, what is your style?

By the way, we LOVE Blake's dress here.
