Special occasions, red carpet moments, those elegant social events when we all want to be at our very best, we all have something inked into our schedules, right?  What is your upcoming red carpet moment? You don’t have to be a supermodel or an actress on your way to the Golden Globes, Oscars, or Emmy’s to have a reason to get dressed up! Instead your plans may include a very special party, an intimate elegant dinner, a New Year’s Eve celebration with your closest friends, or a luxurious cruise with your special someone.  We can even hear wedding bells chiming for someone in this special dress!

Our absolutely red carpet ready pairing starts with a fabulous beaded silk gown by Bibhu Mohapatra from his recent Resort collection.  This is one of the subtly sexy looks we love so much. Bibhu strategically placed mesh in a below-the-bodice cut-out and in open seaming on the skirt front to achieve a gorgeously sexy look without overt nakedness. The soft lavender/mauve color of the dress and these cutouts make it so fresh and the gorgeous beading amps up the “wow” factor without overwhelming the dress due to the simple sheath-like unembellished front panel.

For those chilly “red-carpet moment” nights, we styled the dress with a fabulous sculpted gray mink fur by Dennis Basso.  (see pics of Olivia Palermo in it!). The gorgeous patterns created by carefully piecing the mink make this fabulous fur so special and the length makes it perfect for use all winter whether with jeans or with a mini shift and thigh-high boots.  We love the color gradations in the gray mink and see this coat with all your special black, silver, slate outfits and accessories, & with a  season favorite, blush; the possibilities are endless!

Our gorgeous model wears Valentino embellished silk evening sandals from The Luxe Closet.

Any occasion where we can rock an outfit this fabulous is a red carpet moment, pencil in yours today!! Please contact us for shopping details on this look!
