Glamorous Reds by Tony Bowls
Posted on November 16 2011
For some reason when we think glamour, we think red. Tony Bowls is a brand know for their over-the-top gowns and amazing cocktail dresses. And while there are many formal dresses to choose from in the Tony Bowls collection, we love the idea of a red gown for a big event. Whether it’s prom, a formal wedding or a special holiday party, a red dress makes a style statement unlike any other.
It isn’t about making a red dress like the little black dress. Most red dresses do enough on their own and don’t need major accessories. Take a hint from Anne Hathaway, who was styled by Rachel Zoe for the Academy Awards this year.
Hathaway went easy on the accessories for the red Valentino dress she wore on the red carpet. The strapless gown had large textured flowers on the skirt. A simple diamond necklace and a loose bun finished the look in style. For Hathaway, less was so much more when styling her red gown.
Tony Bowls has many amazing gowns to choose from. This strapless red gown TBE21037 is simplicity at its most glamorous, much like Hathaway’s Valentino gown. There are subtle details that add drama to the gown without taking away from the overall appeal.
With a simple red gown like this, you can opt for a loose bun like Hathaway or a sleek ponytail. Enhance the minimalist feel of this gown by going for refined accessories like a single tennis bracelet or cocktail ring. We’re seeing more and more actresses stick with a bare neck on the red carpet, so don’t be afraid to leave the statement necklace at home.
Now on the other side of the style spectrum, this Tony Bowls red is all about dramatic effects. This gown boasts an asymmetrical neckline, sprinkle of a rhinestones at the bust, and beaded detail at the empire waist. In other words, major-major glamour.
We love the model’s chandelier earrings, and pulling the hair back with an asymmetrical neckline always looks chic. It’s a simple DIY option that you can put together in minutes. Smooth hair into a low tight bun or a ponytail at the round of the head. You want to show off the neckline and any show-stopping earrings you might be rocking.
If there was any other time of the year ready made for red, we’re coming up on it right now. So don’t be afraid to embrace your romantic, passionate side a go all out in scarlet, crimson, garnet, or cherry. Here’s what wearing red says about you! RED!
