  • Oscar Worthy Dresses for Prom 2014

    The 2014 Oscars is tonight and we cannot be more excited here at Rissy Roo's! The end of the 2014 Awards Season may be upon us, but this is the biggest night of all Red Carpet nights, and we can't wait to see all the gorgeous dresses that will be worn by the stars. Like we mentioned earlier this week in our "Ireland Baldwin in Mac Duggal" post, this is the 86th Academy Awards, and this year it's being hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. The Oscars begins at 7:00 EST on ABC, and you can watch the Oscars Red Carpet live coverage starting at 5:25pm from Entertainment Tonight.

    With Prom Season just around the corner, we thought this was the perfect time to show some Prom love for the Oscars by picking out our favorite Oscar Worthy Dresses. If you're looking for a prom dress that will have you feeling as glamorous as celebrities at your big night, these are definitely the dresses that will do it! For more ideas than just the 3 dresses listed below, visit the "Style Spotlight: Oscar Worthy Dresses" photo album on our Facebook page.

    Terani p3121

     For a modern day Old Hollywood look, we're all about Ternai style P3121. It's a form fitting sweetheart mermaid gown with delicate crystal embellishments. It's such a classic (and classy) look, but so glam at the same time!

    Jovani 7821

     To make sure you stand out from the crowd, choosing a bold color is always a go-to choice. Jovani style 7821 is perfect to get that bold color in a totally classy Oscar-worthy way. It's a sexy strapless chiffon gown with a sweetheart neckline that features a ruched bodice with an intricate design. We especially love how flowy the skirt is - perfect for strutting down the red carpet...or onto the prom dance floor...in beautiful grace!

    Mac Duggal 81719r-ivory-black-f 400x560

     To glam it up in style and sophistication, Mac Duggal style 81719R is your answer. This glamorous mermaid prom gown has a lacy underlay that's covered by an intricate beaded applique. The sparkle beading begins at the crystal and sequin sweetheart neckline to give the bodice a more glamorous effect. The embellishments then sweep down the form-fitting silhouette into a stunning tulle mermaid skirt.

  • Muy Caliente! All Hail the Columbianas!

    The 12th Annual Latin Grammy Awards was held on November 10, 2011at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada! Vegas aside, the title of this post should have been "HOT, HOT, HOT" because it was by far the sexiest and biggest night for the Latin Music Industry. And we've got the pictures to prove it! Modern Family's Sofia Vergara, Pop Icon Shakira, and Avatar's Zoe Saldana all shimmered and shined in metallic gowns. Check out these famous ladies, who all hale from Columbia, as they donned their Red Carpet looks on the Green Carpet!

    Notice anything similar amongst their choices? Glitter, sequins, stones and beading make for Evening Gown Glamour! Unique and intricate embellishments and skin tone flattering colors, all chose a more fitted, figure enhancing cut! Rather than shy away from their curves, they embraced them! Totally fierce and exactly what the world needs more of!

    So in true Gloria fashion (if you  haven't seen Modern Family, you're not living), I turned to my inner Latina. I scoured Rissy Roo's and found that Sherri Hill offers some sleek and sultry styles of their own, guaranteed to give you the confidence of these stunning stars! (I also threw in a Shakira inspiration for my Ball Gown girls!)

    ** Pink Mittens Note ** Shakira went home with a Grammy for Best Female Pop Album!!!
