R - Red carpet fashion

We've often heard the term Red carpet fashion, haven't we ?  Let's go in depth and learn more about Red carpet fashion and what it means. These are the outfits worn by high profile celebrities at high profile events such as award ceremonies and film premiers.

The clothes worn in these events garner world wide attention and scrutiny. The celebrities and their outfits are splashed all over the media and newspapers after the events take place. In red carpet fashion events the celebrities get an opportunity to look glamorous in outfits designed by high profile designers. The designers get a chance to showcase their talent and their work. It's a fabulous platform for them to gain recognition and popularity for their work. The celebrities  also garner publicity. Therefore it's a win - win situation for both. 

The public is always eager and glued to the television sets during these events. Most of us are anxious to know what outfits were adorned by these famous personalities at these high profile events. Some of us may even want to style their look.

Prior to the 1990s the celebrities wore their own outfits to these events. The change came in the year 2000. Having a dress featured in the red carpet and adorned by a high profile celebrity can do wonders to the name and popularity of an up coming designer. 

It's not any easy job for a designer's dress to be featured in the event. The designers till the last second would not know if their dress would be chosen by the celebrity, to be worn for the event. Sometimes the dresses are not returned. Their is high risk involved as plenty of hard work and resources go into making one outfit. If it's not selected to be worn in the red carpet event then it's huge loss for the designer.

Let's have a look at some of the red carpet fashion celebrities. 

Anjelina Jolie wore a long-sleeve metallic silver gown gown from Elie Saab Couture to the 86th Annual Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, California, She paired the dress with diamond drop earrings  by jewellery designer Robert Procop.
