Celebrity Inspired Prom Looks

Prom season is finally here! What better way to celebrate the end of the school year than to dance the night away with your friends?  We know that figuring out what to wear in the sea of options can be a bit overwhelming, so we’ve put together some of our favorite looks to hopefully help you narrow down your search and find the dress of your dreams. We drew our dress inspirations from some of our favorite fashion forward celebrities and their red carpet looks. To finish off the look we have paired these red carpet dress looks with accessories, shoes, and makeup to help you finish your outfit.

Look 1: Belle Of The Ball

From Emma Stone’s dress in La La Land and Emma Watson’s ball dress in Beauty and the Beast to the red carpet, yellow has been trending as a popular dress color on and off the silver screen. Bright and fun, yellow is not only eye-catching but also translates well into sophisticated looks perfect for prom.  A yellow dress will make you stand out and perfectly captures the festive vibe of spring and summer.

Shoes To Match Your Dress:

Spice up your yellow dress with our golden heels with rhinestones. Gold shoes are the perfect match for a yellow dress. If your dress has more of a simple silhouette like Maisie Williams we suggest wearing a closed toe heel covered in rhinestones or our stunning gold metallic sandal. If your dress has rhinestone elements like Emily Ratajkowski's we suggest wearing a gold strappy platform heel to complete the look.

Look 2: Blush Tones

Soft and sweet blush tones are a hit amongst young Hollywood. Perfect for spring and summer your blush colored dress will make you look absolutely elegant. We love these looks because they capture the capture the graceful charm of a ballerina dancer and sexy Hollywood glamour, making them show-stopping without being too loud.

Blush tones pair perfectly with both silver and gold. If your dress is simple and flirty like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's we recommend going with a platform peep-toe heel with rhinestones. For Emma Stone's silver star blush dress we suggest wearing a simple strap silver sandal heel. We love JLaw's strappy dress with accents of silver which is why we paired it with one of our elegant strappy silver sandals.

Look 3: Red Hot

Make a statement in a red dress! We're loving these warm-toned dresses that are as bold as they are beautiful. According to psychologist red is the most eye catching color. So whether you're going for a simplistic look like Selena Gomez or a fiery statement like Hailey Baldwin, you'll for sure get the attention of those around you in the best way possible.

Shoes To Match Your Dress:

If your dress has a clean pattern like Selena Gomez's dress we suggest spicing things up with one of our silver strappy sandals. The rhinestones will add a beautiful touch of glimmer and more dimension to your overall outfit. We love this fiery feather blood-orange dress as seen on Hailey Baldwin. With unique and spicy details such as this, we recommend wearing a shoe that is as bold as the dress. A silver platform peep-toe heel for this look will make this outfit look sophisticated and let your friends know that you're ready to party. If you're going to be showing some leg with a sexy slit like Sophie Turner we say partner the dress a platform peep-toe heel with large rhinestone details, this will add a pretty pop to end of that dress slit!

Look 4: Sparkling Metallics

After last year’s Met Gala, we’ve seen a rise in the sparkling metallic dresses. Show-stopping and absolutely stunning on their own, it is no surprise that these dresses have become a hot trend. These young stars show how to wear this glitzy old Hollywood glamour look without the tackiness. Beads and sequins aren’t usually showcased in outfits during the week which makes prom the perfect time to wear something glitzy. Having a dress that is already dazzling makes accessorizing more simple.

Shoes To Match Your Dress:

If you plan on wearing a glamorous metallic look, complete the outfit with shoes that glimmer just as well! For Shay Mitchell's golden goddess look we recommend going with a gold peep-toe platform heel adorned with rhinestones. For those who don't believe that gold and silver can mix, Lily Collins proves them wrong in this beautifully balanced two-toned metallic dress. To balance the center hues of silver for Lily's dress, we suggest wearing a darker, strappy platfom heel. Kylie Jenner's silver metallic dress matches well with our asymmetrical strappy silver platform heel. Kylie's dress is incredibly elaborate and so is our Midnight Silver heel which is why they are a match made in heaven.

Look 5: Classic Black

Elevate the classic little black dress look for prom with artsy details like these ladies. These dresses place a twist on the iconic little black dress with origami-like asymmetrical details. Whether you're looking to rock a more monochromatic solid look or a pretty pattern like Emma Stone, you can't go wrong with the glamorous version of the little black dress.

Shoes To Match Your Dress:

Staying with the color theme, we suggest partnering your black prom dress with all black heels. If you're strutting your stuff in a short dress like Georgia May Jagger, we say partner your dress with a sexy strappy platform heel. If your dress has a pattern like Emma Stone's we suggest wearing a more simple silhouette to not make your overall outfit too cluttered. This is why suggest a black peep toe heel with rhinestone embellishments to maintain a sophisticated look. If your dress has a unique top like Brie Larson's dress we suggest partnering a heel that has a unique yet simplistic strappy crossover like our Park Place heel.

Look 6: Shades Of Grey

This cool-toned hue hasn't been commonly worn on the red carpet but as of lately it has been trending with these young starlets! Light and airy, while also a universally flattering color, if you're looking to make a unique fashion statement prom we suggest going with this up and coming trend.

Shoes To Match Your Dress:

If your dress has a more modest and simple silhouette like Emma Watson's we recommend going with a platform strappy heel to add a touch of sexy glam. If you're channeling your inner Cinderella like Bella Hadid did in this gown, we recommend wearing a classy black simple strap heeled sandal. You can never go wrong in this style of heel! If your dress has a patterned print like Hailee Steinfeld's silver-grey dress did, we suggest wearing a silver high heeled platform peep-toe. With rhinestones in a floral arrangement and a simple but sexy crossover straps, these heels will match your dress flawlessly.
