  • 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 Gomez

    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!

    Faviana 10006

    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.

  • Winona Forever: A Fashion Flashback To The Style Icon

    Ninety's fashion has made a huge comeback this year, seeing celebs like Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Gigi Hadid rocking those ever famous 90s style chokers and goth inspired looks. We certainly can't complain, especially since the 1990s seem to be making a comeback in a huge way well beyond fashion. Just yesterday, sequels to 1990s popular movies The Blair Witch Project and Trainspotting were announced, and one of our all-time favorite actresses who we've been waiting patiently to take over the spotlight once again has done just that: Winona Ryder! The popular 1990s actress who was famous for Tim Burton movies like Edward Scissorhands and Beetlejuice, as well as Girl, Interrupted, is finally back in the limelight in a big way in Netflix's newest sci-fi series Stranger Things.

    With the comeback of both Winona and 90s fashion, we wanted to give a fashion flashback to some of the formal outfits that made Winona that 1990s fashion icon she's become known for. After all, as Vice noted in their article "The Timeless Appeal of Winona Ryder, Hollywood's Eternal Outsider," Winona was "the cult face of the 90s." See four of our favorite outfits below, and of course how you can take a cue from them for a perfect fall Homecoming look.

    Winona at the NATO/ShoWest Convention, 1990

    Winona wore that classic goth look in a totally elegant way, wearing a black v-neck dress, a worn-in leather jacket, black hair, and dark red lips. Of course, you can never go wrong with Johnny Depp on your shoulder! In this picture, Winona Ryder and Johnny Depp were at the NATO/ShowWest Convention in Las Vegas, NV in February of 1990.  Continue reading

  • Rissy Roo's Prom Dress Testimonial: Grace Otley

    A couple of days ago we announced our 2016 Prom Queen Contest, and now it's time to see more of our Roo Girl's prom pictures and read their prom dress testimonials. Today, the prom testimonial comes from customer Grace Otley. She purchased her dress months ago for prom, so she was all ready to go for her big day, and it finally came last Friday.

    Grace sent us her pictures this week, and said:

    "Finally got to wear the dress I got from your store a couple of months ago to my prom this past Friday! Was a hit! Thank you, I love the dress!"

    Jovani JVN33956

    Grace looked so gorgeous! She chose the stylish JVN by Jovani JVN33956. It's a sexy two-piece form fitting dress that features a halter crystal embellished top with a sheer panel and a jersey skirt with cascading crystals along the backside. You can see the stunning back of this dress in the picture below, where Grace and her two friends pose to show off the sexy back of their prom looks.  Continue reading

  • Carrie Underwood at the 2016 ACM Awards

    A couple of days ago, we showed you the totally on-trend pantsuits that some of the celebs wore on the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards red carpet. As we mentioned in that post, another major music awards ceremony was held on the same day as the iHeartRadio Music Awards: the Academy of Country Music Awards! Of course, the celebs on the ACM Awards red carpet were just as glammed up. While we loved all of the look, there always seems to be one celeb that stands out on the ACM Awards red carpet. Yup, you guessed it: Carrie Underwood.


    Carrie knows how to bring Hollywood glam to any event, and she certainly did so yet again at the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards. She wore a stunning sparkly nude gown that was the perfect compliment to her pretty blonde hair. She made sure to let her beautiful dress do the talking by keeping accessories to a minimum.  Continue reading

  • Kendall Jenner on the 2015 Tony Awards Red Carpet

    Last night was all about celebrating the theatre, because it was The American Theatre Wing's 2015 Tony Awards! The show was great from beginning to end, with mini performances from so many popular plays, and two hilarious and very talented hosts: Kristin Chenoweth and Alan Cumming. Of course, though, our favorite part was the red carpet! And, we were extra excited to see one of our favorite celebrities walking the Tony red carpet in style: Kendall Jenner!

    Kendall Jenner 2015 Tony AwardsKendall forewent the traditional gown for a sleek and sexy Calvin Klein cocktail dress. The dress was peach colored and featured long sleeves and and open back - a perfect way to show off just the right amount of skin.

    To get a similar look for your next semi-formal or formal event, there are three dresses that we're loving.

    Jovani 9693

    Jovani 9693For a very similar cocktail dress that hits all of the major points of Kendall's Tony look - long sleeves, open back, high neckline, and textured fabric - go with Jovani style 9693. The multi colored sequin print on this dress will certainly have you stand out in the crowd just as much as Kendall Jenner did on the Tony's red carpet.

    BG Haute G3304

    BG Haute G3304

    For a little bit of a different take on Kendall's look, we love BG Haute style G3304. This pink cocktail dress features long sleeves and an open back like Kendall's dress, but instead of a high neckline, choose this dress to go with a v-neck and lots of beautiful sparkles.

    Mac Duggal 61823

    Mac Duggal 61823

    Or, if you love lace more than sparkles, go with Mac Duggal style 61823 to get a take on Kendall's Tony Awards dress. Featuring long sheer illusion sleeves, lace appliqué all over the arms and bodice of the dress, and sheer illusion sides, this is a dress that's definitely made to turn heads. The plunging v-neckline and open back shows off just the right amount of skin for a sexy look.

    One of the most unique parts of Kendal Jenner's Tony's dress is the texture of her dress. Whether you pick the Jovani, BG Haute, or Mac Duggal dress featured above, all three dresses will give you a totally unique texture that are sure to have you stand out just as much as Kendall's dress.

  • Sparkle Like Miley Cyrus at the 2015 Met Gala for Prom

    The Met Gala is the one event that has been known for celebrities attempting to one-up each other for the best red carpet looks. It's held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC, so it's completely understandable why this red carpet event would encourage more 'artistic' fashion looks. Every year, there's a theme based on an exhibit at the museum, and this year the attire is based on the exhibit, "China: Through the Looking Glass," which is all about the country's influence on Western fashion. Sounds like a fashion night to remember to us! And, it certainly was.

    The red carpet fashion went to the extreme, like Sara Jessica Parker's fiery red headdress, but also kept things simple and classy, like Lorde's long sleeve velvety blue gown. One of our favorite looks of the night met somewhere in between: Miley Cyrus' dress! Miley has been known for her more controversial looks, but lately at red carpet events, she's been choosing some very classy looks with just the right amount of edge, and we think her Met Gala dress walks that fine line perfectly.

    Miley Cyrus 2015 Met Gala

    Miley wore an Alexander Wang dress with stunning crystals throughout, a high neckline, long sleeves, and deep cutouts that showed off the curves of her body. While we wouldn't recommend such a deep cutout dress for anyone but celebrities trying to make a statement on the Met Gala red carpet, the cutouts did balance out well with the long sleeves and high neckline.

    Jovani 24039

    For a similar sparkly side cutout look with long sleeves and a high neckline to balance it all out, go with Jovani 24039. Not only does it feature all the major points of the Miley Cyrus Met Gala 2015 dress, but it's got two extra details to bring the whole look together: a keyhole opening and a beautiful crystal adornment at the waist of the dress. It's definitely a dress that's not only worthy of prom, but of any red carpet event!
