With Donald Trump’s Inaugural Ball less than 2 weeks away, here are some suggestions from Yours Truly on how to look your best at a most historic DC Presidential event!
First up, this gorgeous winter white, open-back gown by Stella McCartney from Net-a-Porter. You could do it as shown with large earrings in gold or choose a pop of color (POC) like a mint green or jade and a coordinating clutch. The cut of the dress if figure-flattering and donning white head-to-toe, coupled with the subtle sexiness of the open-back, will give you an effortless and appropriate wow-factor!
The next dress is by one of my favorite designers, Roland Mouret, a two-tone, strapless gown from Net-a-Porter. The navy and black together and peplum flare at the waist make for a very classic and flattering look. I would keep it simple with this one and pair with with a black clutch and a navy or black fur cape to keep you warm and toasty.
For a beautiful gown without high-end designer prices, Self-Portrait has been making a splash in the fashion scene from Kate Middleton to Kerry Washington and this next dress is one of my favorites from the fashion house. The Mia dress – it also comes in white – would be perfect for the Inaugural Ball. (This line runs very small so I recommend going up 2 sizes from your normal size.)
Everyone knows I adore most anything Alexander McQueen and this next embellished dusty-pink gown is absolutely divine! It’s unique, elegant, romantic and simply breath-taking. If I were attending the Ball, this would be my pick! 🙂
If you really want to look like the Belle of the Ball, this blue-gray glitter gown by Marchesa will fit the bill.
Miami-based designer Rene Ruiz, who recently opened up a store in Georgetown, created this next stunning off-the-shoulder embellished navy blue gown available at Saks Fifth Avenue. I had the pleasure of meeting Ruiz last month and viewing his gowns in person and I will say they are beautiful! Not only that, he knows how to create a gown that truly flatters a woman’s figure regardless of her size.
