This is my style entry for the New look Christmas Red Carpet Competiton which involves recreating your favourite Red Carpet look of 2013 into a Christmas party outfit from the New Look Party Collection. My inspiration for this was the gorgeous Lea Michele who is famously known for starring in Glee, not only is she absolutely stunning she is also an aspiring role model. Lea wore this cracker (excuse the pun) of a dress at the 2013 Peoples Choice Awards. Her outfit has the right composition of sparkle and bright colour, a lot of dresses you see on the catwalks are always quite dark colours, but where is the fun in playing it safe. This is why this outfit is perfect for Christmas to brighten up the dark winter nights!
1. Dark pink sequin sweetheart strapless dress – £39.99
2. Cream patent double ankle strap heels – £22.99
3. Mink fold over twist lock clutch – £12.99
4. Gold solid triangle ring – £3.99
5. Pink and Gold triangle drop earrings – £4.99
I opted for this stunning strapless dress in the same hot pink colour, pink really is a colour not normally associated with Christmas, but pink and sparkles are appropriate for every day wear if i could get away with it and i would be sure to stand out in this number.
Lea’s outfit is very eye catching although, i love how simple she has accessorised, as less is definitely more in this case. As the dress does all the talking i haven’t overdone it with the accessories, i chose some classy drop earrings similar to ones that she wore and i matched it with a gold triangle ring which pair together so well.
The strappy sandal heels she wears are almost identical to the New Look ones and i am sure a massive fraction of the price of hers. The muted colour of pink really suits the boldness of this dress as anything of a similar colour or darker would just overpower the outfit. I also picked a similar coloured clutch bag to match the shoes!
This Red carpet look can be achieved on a budget and at an easily accessible high street store, i guess i am one step closer to looking like Lea Michele now! I dream…
