2006 Oscar Award Fashion: Superb Dresses & Gowns
Topic: SweetSixteenDresses
2006 Oscar Awards Fashion is Inspiration for Superb Prom & Quincenera Knock-off Dresses and Gowns

Who wore what at this year’s Oscar Award Ceremony?

The ladies of Hollywood stole the show with their flowing dresses and gowns. Also, the designers had a great presentation with the stars who donned their creations. Among them, we can say that Vera Wang had a great show. Keira Knightley donned a great wine-colored, one-shoulder gown designed by Vera Wang. It must be noted that white or off-white colors were worn for the most part tonight. Knightley complemented this beautiful gown with a spectacular necklace with emeralds, rubies and diamonds that come from the Bulgari archives. She also wore gold sandals with multiple ankle straps designed by Jimmy Choo. Miss Knightley who is 20 years old turned heads on the red carpet. Her makeup artist used steel and charcoal chanel eye colors on her face. Kudos to Kate Lee who tried to find the right tone to apply to her pigmentation.

With her hair swept in a 1930s style, Michelle Williams wore a marigold yellow chiffon gown with tulle pleats that surround the V neck allowing her to display a 19th-century diamond fringe necklace from the shop of Fred Leighton. Sandra Bullock glowed on the red carpet. The beauty of her dress was a natural attraction, specially when she emerged from the back to present an award. Angel Sanchez dressed Sandra with a navy dress. As far as Amy Adams, she wore a chocolate brown gown with ribbon by Carolina Herrera. Adams also borrowed Herrera's own aquamarine dangling earrings.

How to Buy A Unique Prom Dress: Dress Retailers are Personalizing The Shopping Experience for prom gilrs
Topic: SweetSixteenDresses

Prom Dresses Retailers are creating trust

If you are a woman, you know how embarrassing it is to purchase the perfect dress, wear it to your cocktail party, prom or other gala only to find out that the next trashy styled woman is wearing the same dress. It's a big downer. No woman would like this to happen. This is why there is a concerted effort by high-end dress boutiques to build and manage their databases in such a way they can advise the next shopper on the likelihood of this specific dress being worn in the same town, same event etc. In one word, companies are restricting how many prom dresses can be sold to the same school. They don't want the disappointed look on their young customers' face when they get to the prom site. After all, they want to return business. They want to create trust with these young customers. They want to make sure that their consumers' needs are personalized and customized.

What's the current Trend in Dress Shopping?

It all depends on the season. Which season formal are you shopping for? If you are shopping for your Summer formal, it's a different thing. Shopping for Winter formals and holiday dresses will make you think differnently. If you want to go retro, go back to the classy, feminine and glitzy styles of yesteryear, you will want to choose the right stores or boutiques first. You want to find a company or boutique that carries the goods you want. As a woman, I can tell you that is very important depending on whether you want to enhance the sassy, ultra feminine look. If you are living far from a major city, you want to check online retailers. If you live in town, go around and shop around with a friend in tow. It's good to receive your best friend's advice. Well, I know you will not bring your mother around. Actually, some mothers are good shoppers and advice givers. They stay up to date on what's hot and chic. They won't hesitate to give you their piece of mind. You ask for it, you will get it. Any way, you want to purchase a one-of-a-kind dress that you won't find at other shops. Shop at specialized boutiques that offer one style per school.

Dress designers such as Jovani, Sue Wong, and Vera Wang's Creations are always hot.
