  • Emma Stone and Jessica Biel Glowed At The 2017 Oscars

    Jimmy Kimmel certainly made for a hilarious night, hosting the 89th Academy Awards on Sunday, February 26th at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. From surprising a group of tourists by bringing them into the theater to meet their favorite celebrities, to re-creating a famous scene from Lion King, to tweeting the President, to his always spot-on humor, he had us smiling and laughing, a perfect balance to some of the awards winners bringing us to tears with their acceptance speeches.

    While we loved the show, as always, our eyes were glued to the red carpet. The 2017 Oscars had so many gorgeous looks, but there were two celebrity looks in particular that we were obsessing over: Emma Stone and Jessica Biel. They both wore shimmery golden dresses that were reminiscent of the golden oscar award every nominee was hoping to claim as their own. Check out what they wore below and how to get their looks for prom!

    Emma Stone at the 2017 Oscars

    Actress Emma Stone wore a pretty gold gown with beautiful embroidered details and fringe, reminiscent of dresses from the roaring 1920s. She let the stunning dress speak for itself by keeping the jewelry to a minimum, only accessorizing with a ring and statement earrings. She topped the look off with bold red lips.

    Intrigue by Blush 315

    Get an elegantly patterned look like Emma's Oscar dress with Intrigue by Blush 315, an eccentric gown that's covered in an intricate design of glimmering sequins. The fitted bodice has a sweetheart neckline, just like Emma's dress, and sequined spaghetti straps, which cross-cross over an open back for a totally unique look. The column skirt grazes your curves, giving off a similar silhouette to Emma's Oscars look, then drapes into an elegant train.

    Jessica Biel at the 2017 Oscars

    Jessica Beil Oscars 2017

    Actress Jessica Biel went all-in with gold, rocking a floor-length gown with long sleeves. The beautiful sparkly dress was topped off with a gold purse and gold choker style necklace. because her accessories were as bold as her dress, Jessica kept her makeup simple, with a soft pink lip.

    Primavera 1743

    Sparkle just like Jessica at the Oscars with Primavera style 1743. Style 1743 is a uniquely beaded and sequin floor-length gown that features long sleeves and a train, just like Jessica's dress. Add more gold by pairing with a purse like La Regale RL50011 Mini Mesh Wristlest, or keep the accessories more simple and rock bold makeup and nails like in the photo above.

    A gold dress is certainly a perfect choice for prom if you're looking to feel like a starlet on the prom dance floor. Whether you dress up the look with bold makeup, like Emma, or bold accessories, like Jessica, you'll be shimmering all night long.

The ceremony honored the best in film and television from 2016 and took place at The Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, California.

  • Want Alison's Dress from Last Nights Pretty Little Liars "Last Dance" Episode?

    So, we've seen the last episode before the season’s finale and the great “A” Reveal. Hopefully!!

    The girls were not permitted to attend the schools Senior Prom, due to recent events and decided to get all dolled up and have their own private prom in Spencer’s barn. Waiting for Alison to arrive they find out that she has actually gone to the school, lured by A, of course. Determined to find out who Charles is and put an end to all of the chaos, Alison throws caution to the wind and does exactly what “A”/Charles texts her to do. Low and behold the last few moments of the episode, she gets what she was waiting for. We on the other hand have to wait until next week.

    As we follow Alison around all night, we just can’t help but notice how beautiful she looks in her stunning gown. Of course it was beautiful; and, not surprisingly, was created by one of our premiere fashion designers, Tarik Ediz.

    Alison DiLaurentis, played by Sasha Pieterse is wearing Tarik Ediz style 92578. This beautiful one of a kind evening gown features an enchanting beaded illusion cap sleeve and a sweetheart neckline. The bodice has an elegant floral bead design, a thick solid belt with a sparkly jeweled accent and a long flowy tulle skirt. We loved the chandelier style earrings that she wore, they complimented the dress perfectly.

    We love our pageants at Rissy Roo's, and one of the biggest pageants out there was held this past Sunday night (June 13, 2015): the Miss USA 2015 pageant! At the event, Miss USA 2014 Nia Sanchez passed on her crown to Olivia Jordan, formerly Miss Oklahoma, to be crowned the new Miss USA 2015!

  • Hot Summer 2014 Quinceanera Trends!

    Is your 15th birthday rapidly approaching? Thinking of celebrating your Quinceanera soon? Summer is such an exciting time for you and your community to embrace this remarkable pastime, which you will cherish forever! Even though this tradition is held in many Latin, Central, and South American countries differently, the concept and value are still the same. It is important for families to recognize a young lady's presentation into society as a woman. The word "Quinceanera" actually refers to the young girl (15-year old) being celebrated and the ritual of a party and mass where this young girl presents herself to God and the community, honoring both herself and her religion. The Quineanera is a timeless tradition and should be carried out through generations of beautiful, talented young women!

    Quinceanera With Her CourtOf course, much planning goes into this special party, and we cannot forget the best part...the DRESS! Girls put much thought and effort into picking the perfect dresses for themselves and their court to match their theme and personality. Of course, trends are always changing, but traditional is always in! Many girls go with a standard princess-like, extra full, ball gown style dress. This season there are some newer colors and patterns, like animal print, but the most popular dresses are still the traditional ones. The trendiest colors for Summer 2014 Quinceanera's are pink, blue, white, and some pastel shades, however blue seems to take the cake! We pick Vizcaya by Mori Lee style 88001 in Deep Aqua for the ruffled organza skirt and beaded corset bodice!

    Vizcaya by Mori Lee 88001

    For something more sophisticated and without so much ruffle, we adore Vizcaya by Mori Lee 88066 in either white, champagne, or light blue. The bow accent is very glamorous and the jeweled bodice is breathtaking!

    Vizcaya by Mori Lee 88066

     No Quinceanera would be complete without shoes, and for some, several pairs! In fact, many ceremonies have a "changing of the shoes" where the girl's father will take off the honorary girl's low heels, and replace them with a high heel, as a sign off stepping into womanhood. Many Quince's will have three pairs of shoes including flats to dance in, or to be comfortable towards the end of the celebration. The trend for Summer 2014 in this category is pretty spread out including pink heels, metallic platforms, glittery sandals, and even strappy, colorful heels with tassels of favorite soccer teams! The options are limitless, so it's a good thing some get to choose more than one pair! We like the Jilly by Night Moves Metallic Heels, and the Gail by Sweetie's Strappy Sandal!

    Once the party outfit is put together, it's time to think about hair! Most girls like to wear a tiara or crown, but some go without it. As far as Quince hairstyles, the traditional way is to wear a simple, age appropriate up-do or hair flowing and pinned half up. Nothing over the top to take away from the dress or a girl's natural beauty, but something elegant and off the eyes and face. Many girls like to accent their hair with flowers or crystal jewels, or match their hair with their damas (fellow girl court members).

    Getting everything together for this special day can take many months of planning and organizing so don't forget to start early! Having the perfect look is a major part, and we are always here to help! Stay tuned for more Quinceanera trends and updates!

  • Best Dresses of the 2014 Grammys

    While many viewers were excited to see Daft Punk perform and learn who would win album of the year (surprise! It was Daft Punk), we were just excited to see all the incredible outfits. Every year, we try to predict who will have the most stunning looks, and we think our picks hit it out of the park!

    roos1Beyonce

    We were absolutely counting down the seconds to see what Beyonce would wear – after all, she's the epitome of fierce. Lo and behold, she didn't let us down! Sexy, sophisticated, and unique, Beyonce's mermaid-silhouette gown highlighted her knockout curves: a classic cream and lace combination that was brought to the next level with the perfect red lip.

    Get the Look!

    If you want to recreate the texture, color scheme, and silhouette of Beyonce's gown, try this ivory lace mermaid dress by Sherri Hill.

     

     

    56th GRAMMY Awards - Red CarpetAnna Kendrick

    We think Anna Kendrick knows how to show some skin without overdoing it. Her amazing dress was an understated gray-tone with trendy bodice cutouts and embellishments. The slit on the skirt makes her legs look miles long! She styled it with effortless loose curls for an overall classy-but-sexy vibe.

    Get the Look!

    Anna Kendrick stood out at the Grammys without wearing bright colors, and you can too. Cop her monochromatic look and sleek silhouette with this similar gown from Jasz Couture. Gray is anything but boring when you make use of tasteful cutouts and up-top embellishments.

    Sarah Hyland

    Who says that cocktail dresses have no place on the red carpet? Sarah Hyland is nothing-but-glamour in this black-and-white color-blocked cocktail-length piece. We think the sheath silhouette is extremely modern and the minimal accessories let her outfit do all the talking. It's the perfect vintage-inspired look!

    Get the Look!

    If you're looking for a vintage silhouette, a short hemline, and black-and-white color-blocking, this geometric piece from Johnathan Kayne is just what you're looking for. Style your hair with plenty of volume, use minimal accessories, and find yourself a strappy pair of black stilettos to bring it all together.

     

    roos4Ariana Grande

    Nothing says feminine like tea-length and floral! We love this dress because it's so unique – you don't usually see dresses that are not-quite-floor-length but not-quite-cocktail-length on the red carpet, and Ariana Grande absolutely rocked it. Plus, while it seems like a lot of other attendees went for muted color palettes, she went ahead and did a pattern. She looks so flirty and fun!

    Get the Look!

    This polka-dot dress by La Femme has a similar silhouette and a fun pattern that imitates Ariana's cute look. The mesh overlay neckline gives off a retro vibe that we absolutely love. You can't go wrong with a simple pair of pumps, and there's plenty of room to play around with any color jewelry and accessories!
