Red Carpet-Worthy Evening Dresses

The weather may be turning ever colder and you’re probably going to be pulling out your heavy duty coat and knee-high boots soon enough, but the winter months don’t have to be all doom and gloom as they bring with them perfect excuse to get all glammed up and hit the town.

With the festive season looming just round the corner, you can take pleasure in finding the perfect evening gown to help you sparkle and shine this Christmas – so this week I wanted to take a look at some of the red carpet-worthy evening dresses on the market that will have you feeling every inch the celebrity at this year’s Christmas party.

Fantastic Fishtail Dresses

The fishtail dress is a very classic and striking looking gown, which many famous faces have donned to storm the red carpet this year. Actress Cameron Diaz graced this year’s Oscar’s wearing a cream fishtail gown, keeping it simple with some sparkling Tiffany jewels. Singer Keri Hilson also opted for a pastel pink fishtail number for her red-carpet appearance at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Fishtail dresses look simply divine on hourglass body shapes, as they cling to your curves and really emphasise your figure. Fishtail gowns also look fantastic on those with broad shoulders or wide hips, as the added volume at the bottom of the dress will help to balance out your figure.

This hot pink Gina Bacconi number is an exciting twist on the traditional fishtail style, and will certainly put you in the limelight this Christmas. Coco Fashion have a great range of fishtail dresses in store so why not pop in and try one on this weekend?

Candy Coloured Creations

Candy colours have been a big trend on the red carpet this year, with some of Hollywood’s best-dressed opting for a “sweet-enough-to-eat” colour pop dress at some of the year’s biggest award ceremonies.

Actress Natalie Portman chose a bubble gum pink, sweetheart floor length gown for the Cannes Film Festival this year. Singer Alicia Keys also chose a similar number for her red-carpet strut at Cannes, opting for a slightly more mature purple evening gown to nail the candy colour trend.

Actress Kristen Bell also rocked the candy colour craze for her appearance at the MET Gala earlier this year, with a striking orange-soda coloured halter neck dress. Coco Fashion have some stunning designs in your favourite candy colours from top designers such as Jora and Xcite, so click here to view these online now.

Simple, Sleek & Sexy

If you’re struggling to choose your favourite colour or are unsure of what style of dress will suit you best, you really can’t fail with a simple, sleek and sexy black gown.

The little black dress (or in this case the Sleek Black Gown) is an iconic style statement in its own right, and with a striking up ‘do and lots of sparkles you have a perfect party outfit guaranteed to suit all shapes, sizes and styles.

Some of the world’s sexist women have opted for a fitted black evening gown as their perfect red carpet piece this year, with singer Adele and actress Gwyneth Paltrow both opting for a sleek and seductive black gown for this year’s Grammy Awards appearance.
