Style Yourself – Hollywood Glamour

Hollywood glamour is not just for the red carpet. You can look every bit as stylish on your wedding day with the right touches. Wedding expert Lucia Silver, founder and creative director at State of Grace, told us: “No bride can go wrong with a sprinkling of Hollywood glamour”. Ready for your close-up? Here’s how to get the look.

Just one glance at what’s being worn at today’s major events – the Oscars, the Sex and the City premiere and London Fashion Week – highlights the undying appeal of style from the 1920s to the 1950s.

A girl can never go wrong with some old school Hollywood glamour, it’s just deciding which aspects to take with you down the aisle.

Red carpet glamour is comprised of so many details, but you might take inspiration from some of the following:

  • Strapless, halterneck and plunging necklines
  • Hair with a wave
  • Crimson red lips
  • Liquid eye-liner
  • Bias cut gowns
  • Corsets, lace and garters
  • Underskirts, ruffles, layers and tulle (net) for volume

Top tip

A Hollywood glamour style look can be achieved just as dramatically using accessories, jewellery, hair and make-up. A chic fascinator with net veil, a sequined lace bolero or cape of marabou feathers,  a 1930s finger wave, some dark berry red lips and false lashes are just a few examples of how to ensure you look and feel the silver screen siren on your special day.
