  • Betty Cantrell Miss America 2016's Winning Dress

    Everyone's been talking about our new Miss America 2016, Betty Cantrell. She stunned all of the judges during the 95th Annual Miss America pageant, and all eyes are on her to see what she has planned for changing the world during her reign. Her operatic singing was obviously incredible, but there's one thing from the pageant that we're still totally obsessing over: the dress that she won her crown in!

    Did you recognize the gown she wore on her big night? The Miss America 2016 winning dress is by one of our very own designers: Panoply, which is part of House of Wu! Former Miss Georgia wore Panoply style 44284, a stunning two-piece evening gown that features an off-the-shoulder 3/4-length sleeve trimmed in bugle beads and AB stones. The skirt on this gown is a very fitted mermaid in Mikado that starts with a beaded waistband and flows into a generous explosion of a two-tiered mermaid skirt, and finishes with a sweeping train.

    This two piece mermaid gown is such a glamorous look for not only a pageant, but for homecoming or prom, as well. And, with winter right around the corner, this is also a great choice for winter formal events... because it never gets more classy than winter white! All that you'll need to add is your very own crown to top the look off. This is definitely a one of a kind gown, and one that you can rock yourself, which is our favorite part about this look.

  • Music... Runs The World!

    Performances may have been hot at last night’s 2011 Billboard Music Awards (I mean did you see B?), but the Red Carpet was aflame!  Looking for a Red Carpet look? Take a page from Queen B, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Kelly Rowland! They were bringing the noise in more ways than one!  Check out the sizzling songstresses and their Billboard’s choice.  Award winning or not, they were all on top!

    Sophisticated in her long sleeve stretch Lanvin pre-performance, Beyonce, who later gave a killer performance with her new single “Who Run the World”, was presented with the Millennium Award for her career achievements (thus far, because you know she won’t quit!). Go B, Go!  BFF Kelly Rowland looked HOT  in her fuchsia Max Azria mini.  Destiny’s Child reunion, pleaseeeee!? In a stunning sequin blush Ellie Saab, Taylor Swift continued her run, earning Top Country Artist and Top Billboard 200.  She was also nominated for Top Artist and Top Billboard Album nominee.  Presenter Selena Gomez rocked in Dolce and Gabbana (her boy Bieber<3 had a BIG night, taking home an armful of awards and matching in D&G… if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is!) So they looked great, right? Well so can you! Dress like these stars! Similar styles are offered below from some of the top evening designers.  Hot styles just in time for your next special event... talk about deja vu! Sherri Hill Style 1450, compare with Beyonce's Lanvin dress. Available this August in Gold, Black, Gunmetal and Silver.
