Gone are the days when we had the Cannes Film Festival, the MET Gala and the Oscars to look forward to. With the ongoing pandemic, many of these annual events have had to be cancelled and postponed to ensure everyone’s safety. We miss the glitz and the glamour and having something to look forward to. From the celebrities sashaying down the red carpet to decoding each celebrity’s look and recreating each makeup look, we’re missing it all.
And in efforts to bring that time back once again, we looked through the archives and came across some of the most stellar gowns sported by celebrities. From stunning satin gowns, to textured frocks and lacey trails, we’ve seen it all. Today’s mood appears to be a certain palette of green and so, we decode two looks that are bound to turn you green with envy.
Royal in green
Kate Middleton has always been a style icon, ever since she became a part of the royal family. There is very seldom a time when she sports a look and doesn’t leave heads turning. She is ever so graceful no matter which silhouette she sports and she’s not afraid to repeat outfits; which is one of the things her fans love about her. While her style remains timeless, she is not afraid to experiment and often opts for bold colour palettes. One particular look that caught our attention was when she attended the National Portrait Gallery Gala back in 2017 and sported a green lace dress.
The full sleeved Alice Temperley dress was a lace gown which featured a lace bodice and was belted with a satin bow belt. She teamed the look with a metallic gold clutch and matching heels. Of course no Kate Middleton look is complete without her signature blowout and soft makeup. Everything about this look epitomises grace and grandeur.
Deepika Padukone is one celebrity who needs no introduction. Her style and demeanour speak for itself and there are innumerable times that the starlet has made waves with her red carpet looks and appearances. She’s daring, she’s fierce and she’s not afraid to experiment. There’s very seldom a time when her looks don’t create a buzz on social media and her look for the Cannes Film Festival back in 2017 is one such example. The Ram Leela actress arrived on the red carpet in a deep green gown with a thigh-high slit at the front. The one shoulder dress also featured a cape element flowing down her left shoulder and coupled the dress with matching velvet heels.
You’d think matching your dress with your shoes and makeup would be a little too much, but Deepika Padukone most certainly made it work. Her look was rounded off with deep green eyelids and nude lips and some statement jewels.
We most certainly know where to look when we want some red carpet inspo.
