  • Brooklyn Haley at the Grammys in Jovani

    Just a few days ago we showed you our Best Dresses of the 2014 Grammys picks and how you can get them for prom. But, there's one more celeb look that we're loving that we didn't share in that post: Brooklyn Haley's dress! The actress and singer/songwriter wore one of our favorite dress designers, Jovani, at the awards show.

    Brooklyn Haley grammys dress Jovani 2913

    Brooklyn strutted the Grammys red carpet in such style, wearing Jovani style 2913. This dress is a long sexy gown that features intricate beading with sheer panels and a tulle skirt. As if the sexy sheer panels isn't enough, it also has a stunning open back! Even though it's not a high-low dress, this look gives off a similar look as a high-low with the sheer skirts - It's a great way to wear a long gown but still show off a little leg!

    With how popular the sheer and gems style dresses have been lately, this is a great way to wear the sexy trend in a gown form. Of course, with it also having an open back, this dress has so many trends we're loving in one look! And, there's definitely no better way to feel and look like a celebrity at prom than to wear a dress that a celeb wore.

    If you go for a super sparkly look like Style 2913, just make sure to keep your accessories to a minimum like Brooklyn does. She let the dress stand out for itself, and she looked so pretty doing it!

    If you haven't heard of Brooklyn Haley before, she's an up-and-coming artist that reminds us of Hilary Duff and Selena Gomez. Check out the music video for her latest single "Crash" below - you'll probably recognize it once you hear it! There will be lots more from Brooklyn on both the red carpet and in music scene, so keep a look-out!

  • What to Wear to After Prom Parties

    We've been dishing out tip after tip on how to make sure you have the perfect prom. From dress trends, to celebrity style, to hairstyles, to nail looks...but the night doesn't end with prom, of course! There's after prom, too, and it's just as important to make sure you find the perfect outfit to wear for your post prom events.

    When prom ends and the after parties begin, it's time to throw on an outfit that's more fun, flirty, and comfortable, but still has you sparkling all night long! Wearing cute cocktail dresses have been a popular trend the past couple of years, which we absolutely love...why let the glam stop at prom?? Just make sure that the dress doesn't compete with your prom dress - your prom dress should be your big outfit of the night. Below are our favorite frocks that will have you looking glamorous from prom to after-prom.

    Jovani 74005

    Jovani style 74005 is so fun and funky, and so perfect for spring and summer with its cutout features and open back. It definitely has that extra party-girl edge!

    Hannah S 27796

     Hannah S style 27796 is an elastic bandage dress that is sure to be a comfortable choice, while still being figure flattering. We love the bright blue color (it also comes in a bright pink) - it's a perfect way to channel the spirit of spring in a chic way!

    La Femme 18110

    Just looking for something simple, but stylish to wear? Rocking a little black dress is always a staple choice. We love La Femme style 18110 because it's made of a stretch net mesh fabric that is sure to be a comfortable choice. The dress also comes in blue, red, and nude, so if you'd like to wear a bold color on a more simple dress, that's always a fun choice, too!

    Whatever you decide to wear to After Prom, just make sure that you have lots of fun!

  • Dress of the Week: Faviana 7182 Jennifer Lawrence Dress

    You may remember us mentioning Faviana style 7182 in our Best Dressed Celebrities of 2012 blog post that we wrote back in January. Jennifer Lawrence rocked a similar gold dress during the Hollywood premiere of the Hunger Games, and we loved the look so much that we made her one of our favorite four celebrity looks of 2012!

    Because we love Faviana style 7182 so much, this time we want to give the dress its own special spotlight! It's a sexy foil jersey mermaid style evening gown with mesh details. It comes in colors Oscar Gold, Sapphire, and Silver.

    Faviana 7182

    One of the reasons we love the dress so much is because Jennifer isn't the only celeb known for rocking such a similar style. Pretty Little Liars star Ashley Benson wore the actual dress in the Sapphire color for a photo shoot she did with Faviana! Check out two of the shots below.
