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?

Dancing With the Stars Inspiration

Dancing with the Stars premieres tonight and I'm looking forward to all the costumes! I love the glitter, sparkles, and flowing fabric that make the dances so special. Remember, prom is your chance to shine on the dance floor! You should consider how easy dancing will be in the dress you choose for prom.

Here's how we copy the look from the Dancing with the Stars promo photos:

Vixen Vanessa

It's officially a trend, stars  from Selena Gomesz to Vanessa Hudgens and Brooklyn Decker have been spotted showing a sliver of skin between two piece dresses. We LOVE the covered up high neck and lace of Vanessa's white dress at the premiere of Spring Breakers. 
Prom Designer Sherri Hill totally nailed this sexy trend with her gorgeous short prom dress. We love how Sherri accented the waist with stones along the top of the skirt. The lace top, sweet sleeves, and sheer high neck tone down the sexy revealed mid-drift.

Wilde Style

Olivia Wilde attended the premiere of her new movie, Burt Wonderstone, last night. She looked gorgeous as always in a stunning black sequined gown from Gucci. We love the subtle sparkle of the tone on tone beading, and how the deep v-neck is tamed by a sheer insert. The sexy smokey eye and wavy hair is the perfect look to compliment her style.

Fanning Favorite

Dakota Fanning, born a Georgia girl, debuted new dark hair at the Breaking Dawn Part II Premiere last winter. We love our her bold dark locks pop against the green of this dress. The lacy floral detail at the waist of this strapless chiffon dress is a great way to detail on a classic column shape.

If you like Dakota's look for prom, try Tony Bowls Evenings TBE11341. We love the ruching beneath the sparkly floral bodice. Also, the contrast of the nude silk with the green bead work is stunning. We also like
Tony Bowls Le Gala 113506 for another option.
