Find Your Own Golden Globes Style

Sleeves, high necklines, and full skirts were the fashion highlights of the 2014 Golden Globes night! Maybe it was the January weather, but Hollywood’s leading ladies were wrapped up in full-length gowns that looked absolutely splendid.

But how did these stars stand out from those showing too much skin? Adding a bit of sparkle was the perfect touch to shine on the red carpet. From glittery tulle skirts to classic sequins, many Hollywood stars sparkled by wearing a well covered gown with lots of added embellishments. Although it may not have been the most risqué Golden Globes, it did teach us one thing: sexy style doesn’t mean showing too much skin.

So how do you translate this year’s red carpet style into your own prom dress or formal gown? Since everyone has a favorite celebrity style icon and wants to capture their style, it becomes super easy to do so with fabulous Mac Duggal gowns. Sure, we all love seeing celebrities dressed in their very best! But we also love getting that same style for our own formal events. The key is learning how to dress effortlessly while still keeping that glam of the red carpet. These are a few Golden Globe looks that match a Mac Duggal style.

Sofia Vergara

Sofia Vergara wore a stunning black ball gown that showed off her amazing curves and slimmed her waistline. Taking that “less is more” approach, Sofia wore a gown that covered her stomach and meant that she didn’t have to go on a grueling diet. Mac Duggal Style 48134R from the Black White Red Collection does exactly the same and shows off your legs with a high-low skirt.

Cate Blanchett

We love Cate Blanchett’s style! And her 2014 Golden Globes gown featured a timeless elegance with a little added sex appeal. Black lace on nude is a fabulous way to look sexy and still feel as though you aren’t bearing everything to the world. Mac Duggal Style 50187R keeps that black lace over nude design but also features a very slimming bodice and high neckline.

Giuliana Rancic

E!’s own Giuliana Rancic ventured from her usual style trend, and graced the Golden Globes’ red carpet in a magenta ball gown. Although Giuliana doesn’t typically wear a billowing ball gown, we think that she looks incredible! Mac Duggal Style 61355D features that same magenta color with beautiful lace embellishments along the bodice.

Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts, American Horror Story star, looks every bit as glamorous in a simple and slimming black gown. Her Golden Globes red carpet look can be emulated with Mac Duggal Style 85364R from the Black White Red Collection. This stunning Mac Duggal gown features more sequins along the slight mermaid skirt.

Simply beautiful dresses

Every lady loves a little bling.

But sometimes, the best dress for the occasion is one that is so simple and clean, its elegance is downright breathtaking, even without the added embellishments.

Such is the case with some of the stunning full length formal gowns from the Mac Duggal Fall 2013 Collections. In the case of these striking special occasion dresses, less is more.

Mac Duggal creations are designed with the highest quality embellishments, and details are hand-sewn piece by piece, ensuring quality and style.

EMBELLISH

Gorgeous embellishments make these already outstanding dresses shine even brighter. Cutouts and sheer illusion lining are eye-catching, and together create a look that is both sexy and charming. Gorgeous lace draped over satin creates a stunning, dimensional, textured look. A short and sassy dress drenched in sequins and rhinestones begs to be the center of attention. And gorgeous bodice embellishments like soft rouching covered by a shimmering sequined applique light up the dress, the woman wearing it, and the whole room.

But if you are looking for a dress where the gorgeous materials and hand-sewn pleating are the shining star, Mac Duggal has that look as well.

Style 55006 from the Black White Red Collection is dripping with elegance that shines even without additional glitz. The body-hugging rouching on the bodice shows off curves, while the open back with high closure shows off your sexy side. A sweep train trails behind, and the elegant fabric begs to be touched. The stunning simplicity of this gown makes it shine at any social event.

The woman who wears a gown from any of Mac Duggal’s fabulous collections outshines the rest, whether her gown is dotted with gorgeous crystals and sumptuous sequins, or if the shining material and classic cut speaks for itself.
