  • Best and Worst Dressed at the 2017 American Music Awards

    With the year coming to a close, another 2017 awards ceremony is now but memory. The 45th Annual American Music Awards took place on November 19, 2017 at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California. It was hosted by Tracee Ellis Ross.

    With the 2017 AMAs being the last awards show of the year, the pressure was on for celebrities to make best dressed lists. Outfits had to be on-point and paired perfectly with accessories, hair, and makeup. With the pressure so high, celebs either end up succeeding with flying colors or totally missing the mark. See our picks for best and worst dressed below, and even how you can snag those best dressed styles yourself!

    With Tracee Ellis Ross hosting the event, of course she is number one on our AMAs Best Dressed list. Our favorite look of hers for the night was the gorgeous burgundy sequined gown she wore on the red carpet.

    Grab Tracee's AMAs style with Primavera 9713, a glamorous sequined gown that comes in burgundy just like her dress. This magnificent fitted gown is covered in a lively sequin print, from start to finish. Our favorite part of this dress has to be the mesmerizing illusion cutouts on the back of the dress.

    Corinne Foxx

    Corrine Foxx is taking the fashion scene head-on this year! If you haven't heard this name yet, she is actor Jamie Foxx's daughter. Earlier this year, she walked the Sherri Hill runway to show off the designer's new Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Now, she's walking award show red carpets... right next to her big-time celebrity dad, of course.Jovani 50908

    Do you recognize the jumpsuit she's wearing? If so, that's because she's rocking another one of your favorite dress designers: Jovani! The halter jersey jumpsuit she's wearing is Jovani 50908. It's a stylish and sexy choice that still oozes with elegance for any event, whether the red carpet or the prom dance floor.

    Selena went for full-on rock star at the 2017 American Music Awards. We loved her leather jacket inspired dress, and her brand new blonde hair! The black stilettos and clutch and red lips were the perfect way to finish off her rocker-chic look.

    While this is a totally original dress that's hard to duplicate, there are plenty of faux leather dresses you can choose from that are perfect for holiday parties, winter formals, or even prom.

    Selena showed off her badass side on the stage, too, debuting her latest single, "Wolves," a collaboration with Marshmellow. Check it out below!

    Lea Michele

    When does Lea Michele not look totally chic? Basically never. She chose a light pink gown that has us so ready for prom season! She kept her makeup and accessories simple to really let the sparkles on her dress stand out. Watch her twirl down the red carpet in her gown in the below video.

    Get Lea's AMAs style with Faviana 10006, and off-the-shoulder dress that features a lace bodice and chiffon skirt. It's a soft and sultry look that's sure to have you twirling around the prom dance floor just like Lea down the AMAs red carpet!

    Jenna Dewan Tatum

    With Channing Tatum by you're side, we're pretty sure there's no way to look bad. Jenna's got a style all her own, though, and she looked so gorgeous at the 2017 AMAs! She wore a sparkly nude color dress and couldn't have looked sexier. She even said on her Instagram account that this dress is one of her favorites ever!

    Shameless dress pic. Because it’s one of my favorites ever. Thank you @julienmacdonald ⭐️❤️

    To get Jenna Dewan Tatum's look for prom, go with Jovani 58506. This dress makes for a sexy choice with its all-over sparkles, side cutouts, and open back. It's a look perfect for a black tie New Year's Eve event or prom!Jovani 58506

    Worst Dressed at the 2017 AMAs

    Yara Shahidi

    While we love all that sparkles, actress Yara Shahidi has a lot going on with her AMAs look. The combination of collared shirt, dressy shorts, trench coat, and knee-high socks with heels looks more like a totally funky day-out-with-the-girls outfit, rather than a red carpet outfit.

    Madeleine Petsch

    Black dresses are perfect for any event, but there's a little too much going on with Madeleine Petsch's black dress. A black dress is all about classic elegance; keep it simple, rather than trying to fit every trend, like feathers, lace, illusion, deep v-neck, etc, all into one dress.

    Sabrina Carpenter

    We love Girl Meets World star Sabrina Carpenter, and she usually has such great style! But, she may have gone a little overboard with taking a cue from the funky styles she wears on Girl Meets World with her AMAs looks. While it's always fun to add a touch of uniqueness to your looks, keep it within limits for semi-formal and formal events.

    Julia Michaels

    We're not sure if Julia Michaels is trying to dress up as Lydia in her wedding dress from the Beetlejuice movie, a Christmas present, or a loofa Halloween costume! Either way, while bold red is a totally great color choice, the excessive layers of tulle are a little much.

    Rene Bargh

    We love army green, but it may be misplaced at a formal event, especially when paired with a statement belt like on Rene Bargh's AMA dress.

    Remember, whether on the best or worst dressed list, there are always style cues you can take and incorporate into your own outfits. So, even if there are certain elements of the worst dressed looks you loved, don't be afraid to incorporate them into your next outfit! After all, the most important thing in dressing up is choosing something you're comfortable and confident in.

  • Miss America 2018 Cara Mund Wins In JOVANI!

    Another year has gone by, and a new Miss America has been crowned! Sunday, September 10, 2017 marked the Miss America 2018 pageant, held in our hometown of Atlantic City, NJ. The 91st Miss America crown was given to a first-time state winner. The history-making Miss America is Miss North Dakota, Cara Mund!

    Not only is this the first time North Dakota has won the crown, but it's also the first time that a woman from her state has placed in the top five. Cara Mund did an amazing job, from being judged in categories like talent, evening wear, lifestyle, fitness, and their answer to an onstage question. During the talent portion of the pageant, Cara wowed the judges with a jazz dance performance to Michael Jackson's "The Way You Make Me Feel." Our favorite part of Cara winning the Miss America crown, though, was what she was wearing when crowned. She won in a Jovani dress!

    Miss North Dakota Cara Mund

    Cara represented North Dakota in a beautiful chic and sophisticated black velvet Jovani gown that featured a unique keyhole detail on both the front and back. It's style 27462, and is available for custom order.

  • Jenelle Evans in Sherri Hill for the 2017 VMAs

    29This past Sunday, August 27th, so many celebrities walked the red carpet for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards, where they celebrated and honored music videos that were released between June 25, 2016 and June 23, 2017. Katy Perry hosted the event, and certainly made for a fun night.

    Possibly the most anticipated moment of the evening was the premiere of Taylor Swift's music video for her new single, "Look What You Made Me Do." Earlier in the week, she had surprised fans when she deleted all of her images from her Instagram account, to be replaced by two videos of a snake. So, we knew something big was coming, and that something big was the release of her newest music video during the 2017 VMAs!

    The video was much darker than Taylor's usual direction. The video was all about Taylor's reputation, displaying different versions of herself, including as a zombie! It was a direct jab at past issues with Kanye West and Katy Perry. So, it was certainly quite the statement for the video to be released during an awards ceremony that Katy Perry was hosting! If you haven't watched the video yet, check it out below.


    Believe it or not, with Tay being the dedicated, creative artist that she is, Tay has already also released a lyric video version of her song. Check out that video, as well, below.


    There were so many other memorable events during this year's VMAs, including P!nk's acceptance speech for the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. But, being Rissy Roo's, we're here to talk about the red carpet fashion, and there is one very important VMAs 2017 dress that we're here to share with you!

    We know there were so many gorgeous looks on the VMAs red carpet, but there was one special look that really stuck out to us - a Sherri Hill dress! Reality TV star Jenelle Evans, known for MTV's shows "16 and Pregnant" and "Teen Mom 2," rocked a Sherri Hill dress on the 2017 VMAs red carpet, and it looked so gorgeous on her. Check out a picture of her in the dress below!

    The dress that Jenelle wore was Sherri Hill 50948, a beautiful two-piece gown that features a v-neck top with an open square back and a full, floor-length a-line skirt. The top is embellished Mwith a vibrant bouquet of floral embroidery that makes for a stand-out look against the black skirt. It's difficult to tell in Jennelle's picture, but the skirt features a hide side slit. Check out the dress on our website to see the slit!

  • 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.

    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.

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.

If you don't recognize the name, you'll certainly recognize the character she place on TV. Jodie plays Stephanie Tanner on the sitcoms Full House and Fuller House! Of course, everyone loves Full House. Netflix has brought it back in such style with the new TV show Fuller House, and everyone has fallen in love with Stephanie and DJ Tanner all over again.

    While we love watching Jodie on Fuller House, we couldn't believe how sweet (pun intended) she looked on the People's Choice Awards red carpet! Partly because she always looks so stunning, and partly because she was wearing one of our favorite dress designers: Sherri HillContinue reading

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