Get the Grammy Look

The Grammy Awards are just as much about fashion as they are about music. The fashion seen on the red carpet of the Grammys is notoriously more eccentric and wild compared to the trends at any other award show. From revealing way too much skin to Christina Aguilera’s dreadlocks phase, we have seen some of the wildest fashions at the Grammys.

However this year’s Grammy Awards were particularly tame with fashions that really made us smile. The best thing about the gowns worn at the Grammys? These fashionable trends could easily be replicated and worn by any girl. We saw lots of lace, modest cut-outs, and bright reds! All of these styles are perfect for drawing your own Grammy inspired prom dress that is perfectly Mac Duggal!

So instead of dreaming of a dress you saw at the Grammy’s, sit back, start blasting Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse,” and find Grammy worthy fashions in Mac Duggal designer gowns.

Beyoncé

Beyonce_Grammys_MacDuggal

There’s no doubt that Beyoncé  totally rocked as she opened the show with her performance of “Drunken Love.” She and her husband, Jay-Z, looked incredible on stage, but we also have to mention her amazing red carpet look! Beyoncé proved to everyone how amazing white lace can look with a slightly more revealing look. Our Mac Duggal choice, although more conservative, is popular style 61041 in Blush/Ivory. Like Beyoncé , this Mac Duggal dress features a lace appliqué throughout the bodice and flows into a gorgeous sweep train.

Colbie Caillat

ColbieCaillet_Grammys_MacDuggal

Like we said, it’s all about the red and it’s all about the lace! Colbie Caillat perfectly melds these hot trends together in this amazing red dress. Her style is totally sophisticated, and for our Mac Duggal Dress we wanted to pick something with similar red lace around the neck. Mac Duggal Style 85338 captures a gorgeous red lace appliqué around the bateau neckline. However, different that Caillat’s style, the red lace continues throughout this Mac Duggal designer gown and captures an amazing red carpet style.

Miranda Lambert

MirandaLambert_Grammys_MacDuggal

Red is here and is going to stick around for a while. Miranda’s look is amazing and we love how it slims down her waist. The plunging neckline makes this dress every bit as desirable as the hot red color. That’s why we picked Mac Duggal Style 82063 from the Black, White, Red Collection. The bright red color of this gown is right on track with recent red carpet trends. It features the same plunging neckline as Miranda Lambert’s gown, but also spotlights an amazing high collar for extra amounts of fierce fashion.

Nancy O’Dell

NancyODell_Grammys_MacDuggal

Amidst all the long gowns and hot red fashion, the host of Entertainment Tonight, Nancy O’Dell, wore a much sorter cocktail dress totally gleaming with sparkle! We love this multi-color dress with long sleeves and a plunging neckline. Although our Mac Duggal pick does not feature a low neckline, it does spotlight an open back with lots of glittering sequins! Mac Duggal Style 3759 from our Twelve collection is complete with fully multi-colored sequins in a floral design pattern. For a more comfortable and younger look, this dress features shorted sleeves but at a short cocktail dress length.

Did fabulous Grammy fashion make your night? Who was wearing your favorite gown?

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_Golden_Globes
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

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

Giuliana_Rancic_MacDuggal_Golden_Globes
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_MacDuggal_Golen
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.
