  • Kirsten Dunst Stunned At The Golden Globes 2016

    The Golden Globe Awards are not only all about recognizing some of the best talent in film and television, from domestic to foreign. But, this ceremony always goes far beyond the awards, as it's also about the beautiful red carpet fashion of the celebs! There were so many stunning looks at the 73rd Golden Globe Awards this year, but one gal celebrity blew us away: Kirsten Dunst.

    Kirsten has been center stage lately, starring in the FX tv series Fargo (she plays beautician Peggy Blomquist in the series), for which she was nominated at the Golden Globes, and she certainly showed off her star power on the Golden Globes 2016 red carpet. She rocked a sexy black gown designed by Valentino that certainly turned heads. It's a classic gown with such a unique twist. While it's revealing in the chest area, it's done with such style. And, it's a look you can take cues from for prom! Check out our two favorite prom 2016 gowns to rock a similar look.  Continue reading

  • Best Dressed on the 2015 Teen Choice Awards Red Carpet

    The 2015 Teen Choice Awards took the red... ahem ... blue carpet by storm with the latest and greatest in 2015 fashion, and we're loving all of the celebrity looks! The lady celebs rocked everything from jumpsuits to two piece cocktail dresses to sexy lace numbers. They certainly know how to rock the trends, and we're not complaining because so many of the Teen Choice Awards outfit choices had homecoming outfit written all over them! Or, maybe we're just a little excited for the Homecoming 2015 season to finally be here... Either way, there are three looks that we are especially obsessing over because they are so easy to rock off the red carpet, too! Check them out below.

    Vanessa Ray at the Teen Choice Awards


    Pretty Little Liars actress Vanessa Ray looked so glam in a so on-trend crop top and flirty skater skirt (she's on the left side in the video above). The textured skirt with a more simple fabric top make for a perfect pair in this look.

    La Femme 21244

    For a similarly styled look, featuring a sweetheart neckline top with thin shoulder straps and a skater skirt, go with La Femme style 21244. Just like Vanessa's dress, it's texture paired with a more simple fabric, except it's just flipped in this look - a textured top with a silky smooth skirt! The top is encrusted with iridescent stones, and the full satin skirt features side slash pockets.

    1. Get Jennifer Lopez's Oscars Dress with Mori Lee 97092

    Mori Lee 97092

    While this is the only dress that we don't have the exact version that's mentioned in the video, since it's a bridal dress, we do have the prom dress version: Paparazzi by Mori Lee 97092. It's a crystal beaded evening gown with a sheer beaded back and flowy chiffon skirt. At only $398, it's not only cheaper than Jennifer Lopez's $22,000 dress, but also less than the $900 bridal version!

    2. Get Lupita Nyong'o's Oscars Dress with La Femme 20147

    La Femme 20147

    Lupita Nyong'o were a unique all pearls Calvin Klein dress that cost $10,000. Get her beautiful pearl look with La Femme 20147. It's an elaborate halter mermaid gown with a layered tulle skirt.

    3. Get Rosamund Pike's Oscars Dress with Mori Lee 97112

    Paparazzi by Mori Lee 97112

    We loved the scalloped accents of Rosamund Pike's Academy Awards dress! Inside Edition's interpretation of the Gone Girl actress' dress at a much more affordable price was Paparazzi by Mori Lee 97112.  It's a stretch lace on shoulder gown with scattered beading accents and a front slit. At only $430, we couldn't agree more with Inside Edition that this dress is as equally as stunning as Rosamund's $53,000 Oscars dress.

    La Femme 21011

The bodice is gathered and features sheet cutouts adorned with rhinestones. The strap is sheer net embellished with rhinestones, as well. Dakota's scarlet dress was $30,000, but this La Femme dress is only $350!

  • Oscars 2015 Best Dressed + Get Their Looks For Prom!

    The 2015 Awards Season continues, and we're still obsessing over all of the red carpet looks! Last night was the 87th Academy Awards and it was certainly a night to remember. The show was amazing, but of course our eyes were on the red carpet pre-show. Check out our picks for Oscars 2015 best dressed below, plus how you can get these totally gorgeous looks for Prom 2015!

    Scarlett Johansson

    Actress Scarlett Johansson looks amazing in everything she wears. So, we were of course expecting to love her look. But, Scarlett stunned all on this years Oscars red carpet with a totally new hairdo! Scarlett was first spotted preparing as a presenter at Oscars rehearsals on Thursday in a pixe cut (with no makeup!), so we already knew that surprise was coming. But, her slicked back pixie cut hair and bold green dress and statement necklace wowed everyone. She must be all about surprises lately, between becoming a new mom (she welcomed daughter Rose in September), cutting off her hair for a pixie cut, and rocking such a bold Oscars look. We're loving it!

    Rachel Allan 6864

    To get Scarlett Johansson's Oscars 2015 look for prom, go with Rachel Allan 6864. It's a fitted jersey knit with bead work around the neck and an open back. It's a great way to rock green and get Scarlett's statement halter top look.

    Jennifer Lopez

    Musician Jennifer Lopez has always been paving the way in the fashion world. At this year's Academy Awards, she went with such an elegant ball gown with the perfect infusion of sexy. The sparkly gold gown was so gorgeous and had her looking like a princess! The deep v-neck on the dress has been a small point of controversy as to whether or not it was a little too low, but we think it's a perfect contrast to an otherwise elegant gown.

    Tony Bowls 113513

    To get a sparkly gold ball gown look like Jennifer, go with Tony Bowls 113513. It's a strapless sequin prom dress with crystal accents on a sweetheart neckline and waist and a full skirt.

    Jasz Couture 4980

    For a deep v-neck look on a gold dress, go with Jasz Couture 4980. It's a long beaded chiffon gown with a v-neckline, beaded details, and cap sleeves.

    Kelly Ripa

    http://rissyroos.tumblr.com/post/180331328392/2015-oscars-red-carpet-arrivals

    Talk show host Kelly Ripa always looks so cute and chic, and the 2015 Academy Awards was no exception. She's all about fashion forward looks, and with black being such a popular prom dress color this year, we were excited to see her in a stunning black ball gown. The sparkles add just the right amount of fun to a classic look, and the long train was so beautiful.

    Sherri Hill 32084

    To get just the right amount of sparkle and a beautiful train like Kelly's dress, we love Sherri Hill 32084. It's a fierce and fabulous ball gown with a strapless sweetheart beaded bodice and long flowing satin ball gown skirt. If you love Kelly's look, but want to peruse other dresses, there are so many black ball gowns available for Prom 2015! So, just click the link in the previous sentence or do some searching on RissyRoos.com.

  • Grammys 2015 Red Carpet Best Dressed

    The Grammys 2015 Red Carpet were full of so many unique looks this year! From Kim Kardashian's golden plunging dress (bath robe?), to Gwen Stefani's funky jumpsuit, to Taylor Swift's high-low dress, the looks spanned the spectrum this year. All of the looks were incredible, but there four celebrity outfits, in particular, that we are obsessing over because they are also perfect looks for Prom! Check our favorite celebrity Grammys outfits below, and how you can rock them for Prom 2015.

    Miley Cyrus

    As everyone knows, Miley Cyrus is known for her daring, provocative looks. So, we were pleasantly surprised to see her dressed in an elegant black gown on the Grammys 2015 red carpet. Her black gown featured cut-outs all along the side of the dress, making it the perfect combination of sexy and classic.

    Cut-outs are very on-trend right now, so this is one look that's super easy to copy for prom. Get her v-neck look with large side cut-outs with Sparkle 71454. It's a jersey gown with beaded halter straps that extend to criss cross the open back. Beaded trim accents the waistline to create side cut-outs, and a side slit and small sweep train finish off this sexy look.

    Sparkle 71454For slightly smaller cutouts and a more simple, classic look, go with La Femme 21160. It's an elegant net jersey dress with a gathered bodice and cutout straps that connect in back.

    La Femme 21160Ariana Grande

    Ariana is always all about looking cute, bubbly, and girly... and basically... perfect. Of course, the 2015 Grammy Awards red carpet was no exception! She looked like an elegant princess in her one shoulder white gown and signature pony tail.

    Rock a white one shoulder gown with some sparkle like Ariana with Blush 9780. Beaded illusion rocks in this sophisticated, yet alluring dress. Sexy jewels rock this one-shoulder as it flows into a stunning sheer back. Another band of illusion diagonally drapes your figure creating a brilliant dance column.

    Blush 9780For a more flowy white one shoulder gown with a touch of silver sparkle, go with Jovani 6919. It's a one shoulder chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline and jeweled embellishments at the waist and neck.

     Jovani 6919Madonna

    From music to fashion, at 56 years old, Madonna is still always about doing her own thing, and this year's Grammys proves it! The musician had all eyes on her as she confidently walked the Grammys red carpet in a short and sexy black lace and nude number.

    Lace is one of the big Prom 2015 trends, and Madonna wore the trend like none other! To bring elements of her black lace and nude look into your prom or other formal event outfit, we especially love Tony Bowls TS11467. It's a strapless dress with slightly curved neckline, deep center V with illusion inset, boned bodice with lace appliques, and lace covered slim skirt. We especially love how this cocktail dress incorporates the corset look from Madonna's outfit!

    Tony Bowls TS11467To get Madonna's look with a little bit of fringe, we love Hanna S 27912. It's a strapless sweetheart Venice lace cocktail dress with heat set stone on the bodice and an Ostrich feather skirt. This is a great option to go a little more more on the fun and flirty side of Madonna's look!

    Hannah S 27912To get Madonna's Grammys look in a more traditional long prom gown, go with Panoply 14659. It's a two piece short dress with a top that has cord beaded lace appliques on nude lining with an illusion nude neckline. The separate skirt has a satin waistband, and a corded beaded lace appliqued short skirt with a removable tulle back flounce skirt. This dress lets you go short and sexy like Madonna, or long and elegant on-the-go!

    Panoply 14659Taylor Swift

    Last, but certainly not least, Tay! Taylor Swift is always a red carpet favorite, and the 2015 Grammys was no exception. She looked Taylor perfect in her ombre teal high-low gown! We especially loved how she matched the bold colored dress with even bolder pink heels! What a perfect color combo!

    To get some green/blue ombre like Tay in your prom dress, go with La Femme 19467. It's a stunning sweetheart dress with a tiered high low skirt and ombre dyed fabric. The bodice features criss cross ruching and small iridescent stones trimming the neckline.

    La Femme 19467For more of a halter style top with an over skirt like Taylor's dress, check out Sherri Hill 9743. This sexy two piece dress features a chunky beaded bodice with a choker style neckline and a short beaded skirt with a soft chiffon over skirt.

Juicy J. and "Dark Horse?" Or what about Beyonce ft. Jay Z for "Drunk in Love?" How will we ever tell?
