  • 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 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.

  • Dress Up for Thanksgiving in Shail K. KL3225

    With Thanksgiving only a week away, we are in totally in Turkey mode, and we can't wait to dress up for the holiday! While Thanksgiving may not be a well known holiday for dressing to impress the way that New Year's Eve is, there's no reason that you can't put on a cute dress to celebrate.

    It might not be a sexy little black dress kind of night, but there are definitely plenty of dresses that can be worn to a Thanksgiving party. Since it's technically still Fall, but getting colder and colder out by the day, we love the idea of picking a cocktail dress that shows off the colors of Fall (like tan, gold, brown, yellow, or orange), but also has long sleeves to keep you a little warmer as the cold sets in. That's why this week's Dress of the Week is Shail K. style KL3225 - we thought it made for a perfect Turkey Day dress with the nude and gold colorings and long sleeves!

    shail-k-kl3225

    Style KL3225 is a truly original Shail K. creation! This long sleeve, nude colored cocktail dress boasts a unique, hand-beaded exotic bead pattern with a beautifully accentuated waistline and hem. The high back and neck make this dress perfect for day or nighttime wear. It's definitely a dress that you can easily wear to a dinner, and then out with your friends to a party later that night. Tone the look down with black or nude heels for dinner, and spice it up with sparkly gold heels like in the picture above for a party.

    shail-k-kl3225

    This a dependable dress that you'll be able to get a lot of use out of, whether for Thanksgiving, another Holiday party, Homecoming, or any other formal event. Do you love it as much as we do? Leave a comment below and let us know!

  • New Year's Eve Party Outfits!

    This year is coming to an end very quickly! So many parties...so little time! You HAVE to dive into the new year looking fab, of course. We picked out our fav cocktail dresses that are so perfect for a New Year's eve party. Whether you're hitting up a nightclub or celebrating at home...you'll be sure to enter 2014 looking super glamorous!

    A NYE dress is not a NYE dress without sequins or some kind of embellishment! But, sticking to the plain sequin dresses isn't always the best way to stand out, since a lot of people will be rocking the sequins on this night! It can be fun to find a dress that has the sparkly sequins, but with a little bit of a twist to it.

    We especially love Jovani for this - they are always so fashion forward with their designs that we can barely keep up! Our favorite two Jovani dresses for New Year's are below - they scream NYE in a very unique way and are especially great if you're celebrating at one of the hottest nightclubs. We love the long sleeves on these dresses, too - perfect for winter festivities! Since they are classic cocktail dresses, they both can be worn time and time again for other events, too!

     

     

     

     

    This Jovani 4973 cocktail dress features a nude underlay with a sheer beaded overlay. The sequins gives it a festive look! It's perfect for someone who wants to stand out and show off their legs.

    If long sleeves aren't your thing, no worries - there's nothing wrong with showing off some arms on NYE! The other cocktail dresses we picked out below, like the Jovani dresses, have a unique look to them but still have that new year's eve sparkle! They are both also only $178, so if holiday shopping burned a hole in your pocket, and the dresses above hurt your wallet, these are great options for a more affordable dress!

  • Keira Knightley at the 'Anna Karenina' NYC Premiere

    Keira Knightley's newest film, 'Anna Karenina' had its New York premiere at Florence Gould Hall earlier this month (on Nov. 7th). The British actress wore a stunning navy blue long-sleeve lace evening gown on the red carpet.

    We loved her classy look with the lace dress and how she kept it simple by wearing a tight bun and only earrings for jewelry. The red lipstick was the perfect touch against the navy gown.

     As we've mentioned in past posts, lace is a very popular trend right now (Kristen Stewart wore lace at the Los Angeles Breaking Dawn 2 premiere). If you'd love to rock a long sleeve lace evening gown just like Keira for your next formal event, the below dresses are great options!

    A. Mac Duggal 78704R - A black lace one-shoulder evening gown. The dress features delicate lace and bead designers that travel from the hip to the wrist of the single sheer sleeve. A thigh high slit adds excitement but does not take away from the classy look of the dress.

    B. Mac Duggal 85007R - Keep it classic in this A-line style evening dress featuring a voluminous skirt that hits just above the ankle. The exquisite sheer fabric on the top is filled with intricate beaded floral designs that travel down to the three-quarter length sleeves. Perfect for a formal affair.

    C. Claudine for Alyce 2242 - Give the lace look new meaning in pink! The dress features 3/4 length sleeves, a mermaid/trumpet skirt, high mandarin collar, and a peek-a-boo back.

    The film 'Anna Karenina' also stars Jude Law and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. It is set in late 19th Century Russia high-society and is about Anna, who is an aristocrat that enters into a life-changing affair with Count Vronsky (Jude Law). The story is adapted from Leo Tolstoy's novel of the same name.

    Are you excited for the film? None of us here at Rissy Roo's have seen it yet, but we're hoping to soon! Let us know what you thought by leaving a comment below if you've seen it!
