Friday's Fancies: Red Carpet Ready

I have to admit, I am anxiously looking forward to getting an invite to a black-tie wedding. Even though there are none on the horizon for me (or at least to my knowledge), ever since almost attending a black-tie NYE party, I have been dying for a chance to wear a gown (via RTR, of course).

I haven’t worn a gown since a senior commencement ball at the end of my college career almost 4 years ago (that is insane to think about – I am getting SO old), and award season most certainly makes this longing even more difficult to avoid.  I mean, what’s better than drooling over celeb ensembles during red carpet pre-show coverage? Say what you want about her, but I just about DIED over Rihanna at the Grammy’s. 

Try to tell me she’s not straight killing it. Really, try.

That’s what I thought. 

So, when my time comes (red carpet or not), this black and gold number is what I’d go for (I will never get enough of Monique Lhuillier, and the sharp black tulle structuring is to die for):

Glam black & gold with a little bit of edge, just like I like it. 

What's your dream red carpet look? There's plenty more gorgeous going on over at {long distance loving}!


  1. Rihanna's dress was seriously perfect. Girlfriend was on fire. But the little outfit you put together is pretty spectacular too girl :)

    Nine to Five

  2. Wow. This look you've pulled together is ABSOLUTELY perfect. SO pretty.

  3. Black and gold is such a classic that works perfectly for almost any occasion. I love the edge you give it, too!

    Here's my bathroom project. You can't see the blue tub, but you CAN see the blue sink...that's still blue as we speak :)

  4. I haven't worn a gown in forever, too! I think the last time was 4 years ago for a sorority skit.

    The black and cold combo is always a win! Stunning dress, and I absolutely adore the earrings. Great post!


  5. This is the perfect look for tonight! LOVE that dress!!

  6. Perfect outfit for red carpet.
