The lure & spectacle of the red carpet has always been the elixir to get us through the doldrums of winter & into the hopeful wonder of what spring has in store. While the red carpets this year will be in a different form for sure, we have little doubt that it will still occupy the headlines none the less.
The question that never fails to surface during the flash frenzy remains: “How does any of this matter to the ‘real’ people amongst us?”
Here to answer this question & kick-off the season is Celebrity Style Correspondent Tijana Ibrahimovic, who tells us that the red carpet does indeed contain some fashion & beauty cues that you can take from the red carpet to make your walk on your living room carpet a more stylish one. With these five tips, you can enter 2021 feeling & looking like the star you are!
Tijana’s 5 Red-Carpet to Livingroom Carpet Tips:
Unless you live in a tropical place your summer tan is long gone. Summer body probably also gone. We share the same problem! Do you know what celebrities do to feel a little more red carpet ready (In our case zoom ready)? They put a little bronzer or a self-tanning cream on their face or body! There are so many options out there so depending on your natural skin tone or how dark you want to look you can choose the right product. My current favorite is Palazzo Rosa. Intensive anti-wrinkle self-tanning containing Oil Polyphenols with Calendula, Mallow, Purified Propolis & Aloe. Two hours after applying the product, the skin develops a golden & natural tan. Particularly suitable for the face & all skin types. It gives you a subtle satin color. Whatever you do, do some research about the product so you don’t turn orange!
2. Bright Lipstick
Pick a great color & super occasion appropriate. There are so many different shades of red so it really depends again on your skin tone & what works best for you. My main advice is do not go too dark or too “Bordeaux” unless you are going for Gothic look. You might notice a lot of celebrities love bright red lipstick. One of many reasons it is important to have your favorite color red handy is if you didn’t get enough sleep or you don’t look overly rested, it brightens your face & takes away focus from your eye bags or dry skin. My olive skin tone works perfectly with Maybelline Dynamite Red, pictured below.
Nothing speaks celebratory like a little bit of velvet! Whether pillows, velvet tops, velvet purses… guess what looks great on video, so super appropriate for TikTok or Insta-video if you are ready to break away from zoom parties? You guessed it, velvet! It gives you an opulent feeling of looking super royal on red carpets or border line movie star at a world premiere. However, I do think it is time to move on from dark red to some cool bright velvet colors. Hint: I scored this dress on ASOS!
It is important to stand out. Lots of celebrities dress very simply but then choose one accessory to make all the noise. One great idea for this season, & one that celebrities often wear, is gloves! Her majesty the Queen will tell you. Also, during the pandemic, they are not just pretty, but quite practical too. My current favorite are these bright Queen Suede 100% lamb skin gloves by designer Zelda Farzak.
5. Glitter Shoes
It is 2020! How long has it been since you have rocked your favorite stilettos or special pair of high heels for a dance night out? Trust me… I’ll say it… it’s been a long time! It has been a casual kind of year. Flats & comfy shoes have been the norm, but why don’t we get a little bit of glitter into our daily lives? You can order a sparkly custom made, golden, glitter, leather pair of boots in the Pop Style TV shop. It does take about 3 weeks to receive this fabulous pair, but it will be worth it. Made just for you, you can feel festive every day & have a unique pair no one else has, just like celebrities do all the time…
